Certain things I love Potato Soup, some of the super appetizes. But the thing that brought the score down for me, I don't like the seasoning they put on the steak. And if you are a Steak House... Well you know.

Went there for lunch. Had a porterhouse 6oz steak. It was cooked the way I like it, along with the mashed potatoes and sauted mushrooms was great

Nice dinner out with granddaughter and her friend. We both had the petite sirloin. The girls had drinks and the small bloom'n onion (good size for two people)

What can I say about OBS ... They are just great. Their kookaburra wings, in house bread & butter, steaks, chicken grills are just Fantabulous. They serve variety of drink's. The stuffs are great too. Love this ambience as well.

The filet looked like an overcooked hamburger, and was hard and dry as a cinder block, that could have been used as a wheel chock or a hockey puck, or used as a rock to break a window out. This was not the first time this has happened at the Matthews location. They simply do not know how to cook... More

We can't seem to get it right with outback. In San Juan we could get no service. In charleston we couldn't get in and in Matthews the bartender never even showed up at the bar. We have wanted to eat here for a while but your service is consistently bad, all over the country. It used to be the best.... More

We had not been to Outbacks in a while so were really looking forward to a great lunch. Boy were we mistaken. As we approached the hostess she was distracted and finally just said for us to grab a booth in the bar area. Strange but ok no big deal. I ordered the Victoria filet medium-well. It came back like... More
