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

Slow service & bad comments didn't ruin our family dinner out on a mini-vacation, it became more of a joke. We ordered an appetizer that we ate without plates. 10 minutes later she brought plates, the food was gone & she said we ate fast. Had to ask for bread. we ordered salads (2 of them were side salads) and... More

While visiting Traverse City for a long weekend vacation, our family ate at the Outback. We loved it so much, we went back the next night. The steaks were done just how we asked and the choice of sides is huge. Great service and reasonablely priced

When we got here, we requested a table for our party if 7. After waiting 50 minutes, we were taken to a large booth with a small table placed at the end for one person to sit at, by himself in the aisle!!! We refused the booth saying we wanted a table.... Now we sit her again waiting still for... More

Used Click-thru seating app to get seated when we arrived. Had a great waitress (Brandilyn)!! Great management (Nicole) stopped by the table to check on everything. Both were a lot of fun!! Food was awesome.
