We always love coming here. Greeted and seated right away. Drinks were well above average. Which is rare in this area. The food came fast and was very, very good. Cooked perfect. But the highlight of our visit was Kelly our waitress. She was amazing. She was caring, thoughtful, and a pleasure to talk with. Her recommendations made our dining... More

I have eaten at this chain throughout the country....the one in my own backyard was disappointing. Midafternoon, nearly empty and the attitude of the server and follow through were awful. The soup and salad I had were fresh but never was I offered refills as promised. My friend ordered a filet and it arrived absolutely alone in the middle of... More

Ordered a steak, fries and a beer. The food was good and hot. There where other special, but this one sounded good, this night. Keep up the good work Travis.

The service here was good, very polite and attentive. The food was typical of Outback, I love their salad and dressing, but the steak is always so thin, and sometimes a bit tough. The flavor is always good, but why they can't get the same good quality of steak that I can at a local grocery store is beyond me.... More

My husband and I was seated in a virtually empty Outback Steakhouse. We were handed menus. After 15 minutes of waiting no one attempted to take our order. We sat there with no water just menus watching servers and the host walk by us many times. Needless to say, we left. We told the host about it and got the... More

On two recent visits I tried two new things, the grass fed beef burger and the grilled chicken quesadillas, both of which were very good. The service was very good both visits, and my only disappointment was an overcooked bloomin' onion appetizer.

Always enjoy are meals when we eat at Outback. The food was excellent, but service needed a little tweaking. When we needed refills, we had to ask the manager. When done with dinner the plates where not removed in a a timely manner. Just the little things. But overall, still had a good time with are friends.

This restaurant served up an excellent filet and lobster tail dinner for three of us. Waitress was superb and the food was awesome. Cooked to perfection. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Traverse City.
