The Outback is one of my "go-to" restaurants when on the road. They do a really good job of producing the same decent food at a decent price very repeatably - I've never had a bad one. This one is just like all the others. For me that's a good thing

Maybe it's just my memory, but it seems the Outback was much better a few years ago. They also had a wider menu years ago, e.g., pork chops that were excellent. The steaks are average as is most of the menu. The Bloomin' Onion is loaded with calories,but it is great. The salads and their dressings are also very good.... More

Decent but uninspired food. It's a chain so if you've eaten at one you know the routine. Nice wait staff and usually busy

This place is right off the highway, and close to the hotel, so even though I had a bad experience the first time I went back again yesterday. I ordered the filet both times. I sent it back the first time. The second time I figured it was shame on me. I won't go back until y'all tell me its... More

My wife and I arrived at 12:10 pm Sat for lunch. The restaurant was about a 1/3 full; maybe the lunch crowd had not arrived yet. We were seating immediately at the window. Cool. Our waitress stopped by and took our drink order and asked if we were ready. We were not, but would be soon. Nine minutes later, she... More

Every year we come to visit from NY we always go to The Outback here at least 2 nights out of our 5 night stay. This is by far the BEST Outback we have experienced anywhere around from NY state to NC. The manager there Alyssa is just the greatest-very personable!

Four of us stopped on Saturday night 6pm and place was packed despite exterior renovations. Menu has changed and is confusing. Used to get 2 sides with meal, now 1 but same price. Food quality and service was excellent. tile floors seemed a bit slick. Would suggest more light at table and un-confuse menu. Otherwise a must go for steak... More

Love their french onion soup! If you are wanting a steak I would recommend going somewhere else as their steaks are not good. The Prime Rib is an option to try as it is very good!
