We go at least once a month; never have had a bad meal; today was exceptional; bread/salad/potato soup incredible/all good; my steak was juicy and fantastic. We prefer to eat in the dining area or outside as service seems to be much better than in the bar area; however, when we eat in the bar it is usually to watch... More

Went to dinner with friends at the outback and I must say the steak I had was way better then my previous experience. Everything that everyone had was good and very tasty so a big improvement . Time will tell if this is the new norm or a fluke, hope it's the new norm.

The food at any Outback is always good. This one is no different. The prices are usually higher than some other restaurants. But we had enough leftovers for a second meal. The atmosphere was pleasant even though they were quite busy. The waitress did a good job.

For a chain food experience it could have been better. Staff seemed overwhelmed and not very well trained. If Outback is going to project a Good Day Mate experience than the servers should be engaging and happy go lucky. The servers weren't even trained to basic American server standards; like pour wine out of the carafe and don't leave the... More

They serve bison as an option for burgers..very yummy. You can watch the chefs prepare you food if you like. The atmosphere is country dive bar chic....they serve peanuts in the shell as a snack and you can throw the shells on the stained concrete floor. I've been there when the wait staff broke out in a flashmob style line... More

Outback Steakhouse is always very good to excellent. This steakhouse was very good. We enjoyed the usual Blooming Onion. My wife had the Ahi Tuna and I had a grilled chicken and all you can eat shrimp meal.

Ordered an Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad from the lunch menu. Chose crispy chicken. Should have chose grilled. Chicken meat was nearly indistinguishable. Salad arrived with no eggs. Lots of lettuce, but very meager quantities of cheese, bacon and croutons. Asked for blue cheese and honey mustard. Dressing flavor was below average and dressing portions were laughable. Had to ask for... More

Service was slow. My husband ordered a beer which arrived well into our dinner. The bread arrived when we were almost finished with our salads. The steaks knives were so dull they wouldn't slice the bread let alone the steaks. My husband asked for another sour cream for his baked potato which came as we were finishing dinner. We have...

went for a luncheon here that a client wanted to visit. Nothing bad, food was 'average', nothing special. Had the smaller steak portions..6 ounces never looked so small!.taste was 'OK'. atmosphere was good, very clean. service was good. Prices were a bit high for what is presented. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.
