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.

We did an online order and had food waiting for us at a specific time. We have done this many times for years now. Although we have had little items missing, like sauces, before this was the first time that a part of the prime rib was cut off. We ordered the largest size and 1/3 was cut off. It... More

My last few experiences at this particular Outback were much improved so I can only assume that someone in their organization really does read these reviews. There were not any gaggles of staff hanging out in the bar area and customers were actually being weighted on - yes. I did try a new dish which was very bland but then... More

Apart from the server bringing us the wrong starter twice, the rest went very well! Delicious filet steaks, I love the dark bread & butter to eat while I wait for main course. Salad good too.

Our server, Gibby, took the time to write down local sand dunes & beaches. It was our first night in town & was very helpful. Thank you!

Service was ok. Food was slow and really wasn't that great! It wasn't busy and we were seated right away. The food was just mediocre!

Family outing, kids really wanted to go here. Two points for service, servers are great, food still causing diarrhea. I'm currently stuck on the throne at 430am trying to catch my flight. Enter at own risk! Good luck!

We decided to eat here for a midday meal and found it less expensive than we were expecting - always a good thing! We both had the 6oz Sirloin meal and it was only $11.99. It included fresh bread and 2 sides. They had some fancier choices that were a dollar extra but worth it. I had the wedge salad... More

I went here with two other friends. First, when we arrived the hostess was no where to be found, however, there were servers running nearby that didn't greet us. We stood there for a few minutes, and seen the bartender watching a game on tv while the whole time he had his back towards us. The hostess finally showed up... More

During my busy season I frequently stop for a quick bite to eat (a side salad) and a drink. Due to my time constraints and minimal order I sit at the bar. Once I am waited on my service and food is great but before I'm waited on I view a gaggle of staff either hanging out and chatting at... More
