Came here with my hubby after a 14 hour drive for dinner. We ordered the 6 oz. Center cut sirloin steak that was delicious. Unfortunately, the Aussie fries were soggy and the onion petals and the loaf of bread were burnt. We were pleasantly surprised that we got in right away and our friendly waitress was very attentive. We received... More

Visited today and we had the best waitress. I wish I could remember her name. But she was just wonderful. Love their bread and coconut shrimp

The place has a family atmosphere and the food selection is good. The ribs are really good and the soups are great

The food was great and the service was also quite good. I was expecting a lunch menu (We came in at 12:30), but the food was still very tasty.

Had a good visit our wait was not too long for a Saturday night. Food was ok but our server Carter was top notch. He kept us informed even brought out salads when the appetizers were running behind.

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
