As always we had a great time and a great meal at Outback. We both had the Wood-Fire Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie for starters followed the Perfectly Grilled Salmon. Great food, great atmosphere and great service from Johnny!

I had a wonderful Ribeye steak, and returned for that meal at least three more times while I was in Hickory for business last summer.

We have eaten here often for over ten years now. The food and service is consistently very good. Easily one of the best restaurants in the south side of Hickory.

I saw the TV ads for a 6oz. filet and a rock lobster tail for $15.99. When I mentioned the ad the waitress said it was a "National Ad" and did not apply here. The same meal was $26.99 in Tucson. Bait and Switch?
