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.

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!
