The food was excellent and so was the service. I would recommend the sirloin. The Samuel Adams Seasonal was cold and tasted great!!!

Visited this restaurant with friends. We did the call ahead seating and were seated right away. The service was very good as was the food. I got the ribeye and it was done to perfection, tender and juicy. Everyone else enjoyed their meal as well. Of course we had to finish with their Chocolate Thunder From Down Under -mmm, mmm... More

Special menu items (sirloin & mashed potatoes)not up to expected standard. Fish tacos were good, caesar salad overdressed. Service subpar (table not cleared promptly for desert). Deserts were the best part of the meal…chocolate mouse & strawberry shortcake. Uneven experience.

We attended with some friends of ours and had a great night out. Food was all good, we had different items from the menu, and it was reasonable priced. Staff were attentive and ensured plates, glasses were cleared off or refreshed as necessary.

We visited Outback for lunch on Saturday of Azalea Festival. They were very busy but we were seated immediately. Our server was an attentive young man, Gabriel, who made our meal spectacular. The food was delicious and service was exceptionally good!

I didn't expect anything other than the typical Outback that is found everywhere. They are all pretty good and so was this one. We started with the typical Blooming Onion. This one was good, but was a bit greasy. We split the Crumbled Blue Cheese Wedge Salad. We always liked this salad and was not disappointed. The server split it... More

I've been here numerous times. I've never had bad service. And love the food. From the minute you walk in you always know that they're there to take care of you. I understand that when it gets busy.. You have to be patient. But that's with any place.

My husband was craving a steak so we went to Outback after a long sabbatical. It was the same as always. Long wait, friendly staff, consistent food. They did have some nice combinations they didn't have last time. My husband got the sirloin with potato and coconut shrimp. He enjoyed it and the steak was done to his liking. I... More

Traveling to Australia a few times, Ive noticed Outback Steakhouses everywhere! The ol ball and chain and I met up with a friend at this location and had a wonderful server. There was a trucker sitting to my left who was in need of company and our server took his break and sat with the man for his dinner. I... More

My husbands New York Strip was very tasty and cooked to his liking but my Mahi which I had grilled was very dry no lemon served with... More
