I hadn't been to Outback in years due to a couple of bad experiences in the past. We had a gift card so decided to give it a shot. My husband got the grass fed beef burger which he said was excellent. I got the mahi mahi with a lemon sauce, sun dried tomatoes and artichokes. I am a little... More

This is probably the best outlet that we have been in of this chain. It differs from most other types of chain restaurants in that the food is prepared daily on site - including the soups - and the service is top notch.

We have a great time at Outback everytime we go there and enjoy it thoroughly. The food is great and their prices are a little high, but worth it. The one in New Bern, NC has been packed quite often as it due to its popularity of course. It is a franchise that tries to bring the best atmospheric environment... More

Overpriced, and steaks cooked on a griddle...... It was mid afternoon and there weren't very many people there so our bad steaks weren't because of them being too busy. The waitress was wonderful and kept on top of things the whole time.

Ordered Victoria's Filet, the 9 ounce sirloin and a lobster tail. Both steaks arrived cold after a wait of approximately 40 minutes. The taste of the sirloin was excellent except for the temperature. The Victoria's filet was not a good cut of meat and was under cooked. Asked for medium rare and got rare.

Yes, Outback is a chain restaurant, but after the catastrophic meal we had at Christof's a few nights earlier, we knew we'd get a decent meal at Outback's. We went on Halloween night, but there was nothing scary about the service, food, drinks, or atmosphere, We were introduced to two new items, the Mac & Cheese balls, which had just... More

As a party of 12--8 of which were children, we were looking for a place to celebrate my grand daughter's first introduction to a RED HAT dinner.

No worries at this restaurant mates. The broccoli was perfectly cooked. The sweet potato plain was mouth wattering and my steak was cooked to perfection. A perfect night out with family with great food and the opportunity to visit.

We have visited many Outbacks throughout the east and have to say this Outback (which we have been to numerous times) busy but always worth the wait. Never had a bad meal or bad service!
