Stopped in for lunch because I saw a couple of cars in front. Hard to tell it was open! Once inside, I could hardly see because all the windows were shuttered. Great idea for a mood, but not for lunch in my opinion. I say that because there was not enough light to read the menu! Ordered a prime rib... More

We had 11 people in our group and the tables they pushed together were uneven and a little unsteady. All of our orders were correct and came out fairly quick. The steaks were pretty good but the fish tacos and mac and cheese were dry. The blooming onion was extremely greasy even by fried food standards. The price was a... More

Very good for a franchise restaurant. Service was very good. Food was good. Everything came to the table warm ready to eat. Wedge was great.

Stopped on Saturday night, 7 pm - while the general staff and our waiter were friendly and personable, the food was disappointing - salads served on warm plates - basic steaks were cooked to order but flavorless and dry. While this establishment is not "high end" I certainly expected more. Baked potato was the highlight of the meal - how... More

There is plenty of parking and benches out side for waiting.... The steaks were pretty salty but good. They are tender, The onion bloom is very good but loaded with calories. On Sundays there is always a long wait as it is very popular.

Our server was Charles. The food was very good. We enjoyed our visit. The kitchen was a little slow taking almost 20 minutes for soup and salad to come out. The place was not busy with only about 10 to 15 customers at the time. Other than that it was a great lunch. The staff, manager, greeter and server were... More

My family and I love Outback Steakhouses and eat at them fairly regularly and in fact we have eaten at this location many times but not recently. In the past this place was hard to get into and the service and food were wonderful but not anymore!! We had one of the worst dining experiences of our lives on Fathers... More

Worst encounter ever. For a holiday weeknight when the parking lot is slow, the cook was slower. Greasiest steak w more fat n grizzle than meat. Potato was pretty much undercooked. My husband filled himself up w the bread. Feel safe in Tennessee,Georgia,Florida,the Carolinas ,Illinois and Indiana. Just don't stop at Outback on Shelbyville Rd, Louisville. They took $3 off...

I'm not a huge fan of chain restaurants, and this reinforced that. The menu is consistent, which one would expect, but the flavor was just off. We started with the pretzel bread and beer cheese dip, good tasting bread, but 2X more beer cheese dip than we could use, and very runny, watery texture. A thicker, creamier dip would have... More
