Service is slow. 20 minutes to get a cocktail. Requested a medium done steak and it came well done and tough. They have the music turned up so loud you cannot visit.

Service was good, food was good. Exactly what I expect when I go to any outback. Steak was cooked as requested. Hostess was very professional. Waitress was very friendly and knew her job well

Not a big fan of chain restaurants any but was still disappointed. My steak was a little over done but not very hot. If steakhouse is in your name you should get it right every time. Liked the grilled chili lime corn. Service was good. Was convenient to my hotel.

Ordered takeout while staying next door at comfort inn. Appeared that they do a lot of takeout business. Food was very good, and they didn't forget anything in my order.

Recently had take out and portions were as big as dining in. They included the bread as well. Other times I've been, the food is always great and environment fun. Over the years, the taste stays the same but miss some of the changes they've made. Portions seem smaller, but overall this is such a great restaurant. Above average than... More

We ate at the Outback in Bloomington, MN. Morgan was our friendly and efficient waiter. It was happy hour so we ordered a strawberry and peach sangria (with chunks of real fruit) and a blackberry martini. The drinks were so delicious we had another. We had a delicious salad and sirloin steaks. The steaks were just ok. They seemed to... More

Food was excellent and we're seated, ordered, full and out within 45 minutes, which included appetizers and desert. Very friendly waitress and the cook staff made everything the way we ordered it and it tasted fresh and great. She kept the table clear of dishes we were done with and the drinks full. Nothing better then a quick great tasting... More
