Our waiter, Keelan, very attentive. Food orders served correctly. Victoria's filet mignon cannot be beat! No complaints about their salads either.

Great service - our waiter really worked hard to ensure we were satisfied with our order. The Chicken Aussie Tacos were delicious. If you've never had the baked potato soup - this is a must! And, of course, the chilled salads. No complaints from this family. Will definitely visit again next time in Lake Charles.

We chose Outback because it was close to our hotel and we knew the food would be good. We got there at 8:05 pm and was seated immediately. At a dirty table. And waited. And waited. And waited. Finally we flagged down someone and asked who out server was 15 minutes after we got there. She said she did not... More

My son had the chicken tenders and they were so hard he couldn't bite into them. Our service was barely average From the hostess to the waiter nobody appeared... More

We have gone to this Outback for years when visiting Lake Charles, and we always looked forward to the experience. We have been there 3 times in the past 9 months. My wife has had 3 consecutive BAD meals - cold, not as advertised in the menu. My 3 meals have been progressively worse, so I've fared better than she.... More

Bad service, dirty tables and disappointing food....and it was not busy! The hostesses told us to sit anywhere in the bar. We walk into the bar and the first 4 tables were all dirty, had not been bussed. The hostess then came over and cleaned off the table. Our server never introduced herself or said "hi" and the first words... More

My wife, son and I had dinner there on a recent visit to Lake Charles. The service was very slow and our server disappeared for long periods of time leaving our drinks empty. I ordered the steak and lobster combo. The menu showed a nice white, plump lobster tail and a nice hearty fillet mignon steak. When my plate arrived... More

Because today is Veterans day we got a free soda and a free bloomin onion. The bloomin onion was super small. My food was a bold steak with a mustard sauce and crispy potatoes. My meat came back like they just freshly killed the cow and plopped it down on my plate and I got garlic mashed potatoes not the... More
