Another multi location theme restaurant where the Steak House motif is Australian. It's basically pub food with a few steaks, chops, and lamb chops rounding out the menu. Last year they opened for lunch in many locations including the State Street one. A good choice for family dining lunch or dinner. Neither cheap nor expensive, but there is something on... More

We met here for a family birthday party. From the start the service was phenomenal. We were waiting for one family member but they treated us beautifully. The blooming onion was delicious. My steak--a 6 Oz. sirloin-- was really good but other family members were not as happy with their tough steaks. It was a good experience although the food... More

I thought I would try something different and I was NOT disappointed! Ribs were falling off the bone and had a great tangy sauce. I chose Outback because I could walk from my hotel. I'll be back tomorrow for a big juicy steak!!!

We enjoyed the Outback Special Steak. It was prepared exactly to order. It was accompanied by a delightful fresh salad and baked sweet potato! Our kids enjoyed their selections from the kids menu. Our waiter was repeatedly on time with details . Noise level was a bit high for conversation at our table .

Outback Steakhouse who hasn't heard of it? They are every where you go. When you are in a city or town you are not familiar with and looking for a great place to eat just someone is a Outback Steak House near by and you will not be disappointed.

Stopped in for an early dinner recently. I usually visit a competitor down the street, but wan't to change it up. Glad I did. Basically had the bar to myself - meaning anything I needed was to me pronto. Food was very good - had the prime rib - including the salad and sides. Servers/bartender were all very pleasant and...
