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

I can say we had a wonderful server.Her name was Melissa.She was very pleasant and made sure we had everything that we needed.I truly enjoyed the food that we had received and I had gotten the salty caramel cookie thing for dessert and it was good. It came with white chocolate, pretzels, but is in crust of the cookie dough... 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

We have come to this Outback several times and in every case, they do not carry an item that is listed on the menu...O Doul's NA beer. The food is perfect as was our waitress and other staff. But, they do not ever seem to have any NA beer. Take it off the menu if you do not plan to... More

Outback always has a 45 min. - 1 hr. wait unless you are an early bird, or late diner, so I used their call ahead feature, and called about 1.5 hours before our arrival time, and explained to them that we have a special needs child who can't wait for 45 min.-1hr. They also told me that they would make... More

We have eaten here two other times last year in the evening and each time was very good and we were happy with everything, BUT, Don't go at 2:00 PM on a Saturday, because even though my husband and I were there with only 10 other guests in the whole restaurant, the service was friendly but SLOW, drinks were watery...
