My family loves outback, we have dinner there several times a month so having outback on vacation was to be expected. We called ahead (because we know outback can experience some serious wait times) I was told 20 minutes - the hostess that answered seemed very scattered and seemed to not know how call ahead seating works. When we arrived... More

Food and gentleman server was 5 star. The poor planning on the scheduling manager was 0 stars. We got there early and still had to wait for over 20 minutes. but we were lucky. They got a long line to eat, and there was 1/2 the restaurant empty because of poor scheduling of the wait service. It was frustrating to... More

We ate here last week tired of seafood. We ate only appitizers but filled us up and was very good. The onion is our favorite!!

We have 2 Outbacks near where we live. While visiting Nags Head, we thought we'd go there as we are familiar with the menu, are generally pleased with our meals there. Well, not so much here. I ordered a 6 oz. sirloin with baked potato and salad. The rest of my party had an assortment of steaks, steak quesadillas, and... More

Literally sitting at the restaurant right now as I write this review. 1. Took them 30 minutes to get us our appetizers. Ok, I can deal, it's the summer, I waited tables, I know how it can be. 2. Food comes out an hour and a half after sitting down. Waitress never takes our app plates, barely any room to... More

My family and I love to visit Outback Steakhouse. I especially enjoy the grilled salmon and the small Chocolate Thunder from Down Under.

Not having an Outback in Elizabeth City, NC, we decided to check this place out for lunch. We ordered medium well steak, but it came back to us a little less cooked. We did not send it back, but ate it anyway. I was well satisfied with the tenderness and seasoning. The waitress was very friendly and well attentive to... More

Started out horrible and ended horribly bad! Our waiter was slow and rude, appetizers were old and seemed like they had been sitting out forever! When we asked for the manager he told us he was busy! 15 mins later we asked again and he was rude about getting him like he didnt want to let the manager know we... More

On vacation and was our anniversary so we decided to go to outback. The steaks were cooked as ordered but was quite tough. The mushroom Marsala topping was cold and a very small portion. The pretzel beer cheese appetizer was the best thing we had. The steaks were not very flavorful. The baked potatoes were small and the portions of... More
