Mediocre Service

I recently heard that this location was redone, so I wanted to try it. I had to wait 20 mins to get a table with my date, which was fine. When we got seated, it took some time to get service. We ordered an appetizer, but it took forever to get out main course ordered. After that it you at... read more

Went to early dinner since someone gave us a gift card. The service was good. The food was mediocre, at best. The "filet mignon" was about a quarter inch thick, and tough. The "fondue" was a thin cheese sauce. The" Pretzel bits" were cigar-shaped bread sticks. The "crab- stuffed mushrooms" were tough enough to need to use the steak knife... More

Even if you're watching your calories, it's hard to beat their sirloin steak and plain baked potato. Very tasty and filling. I usually get the asparagus too. Adds a nice roundness to the dinner flavor.

We stopped at this restaurant because we were out shopping and it had been a while since our last visit to Outback. It is going to be longer before we come back. The restaurant is in the middle of renovations so inside is pretty bare and basic. The meal was nothing special either. Several items actually lacked any flavoring. The... More

I stopped in here as we were passing through because I've eaten at many Outback restaurants, which are normally very good. This one was not. The restaurant is under construction, presumably for an upgrade. The lobby area is torn out and some of the booths are framed in plywood. Construction lights were strung across the ceiling in the waiting area.... More

The service was great but the food was not what outback is known for. Caesar salad dressing not on salad but bowl?? Onion petals were tasty but not done well. Petite filet had fat on it in what world is that acceptable? Asparagus was not trimmed well rotten ends. The keylime desert was the best part of the meal.

I love the steaks, the appetizers, and the seafood. I think it's really a superior place to eat. The environment and experience is one the best. It is very alive and the service is top notch. The unlimited shrimp offer is one of the best offers there.

Very good steak - professionally made. The sides were also well done. Skip the cocktails - they are mediocre and seem to be watered down, or simply not include a lot of alcohol. Surprisingly, the shrimp dishes were also excellently made (I did not have high expectations), although the restaurant could try and come up with some more interesting sauces... More
