We visited the Outback at 9 on a Friday night. We sat in the bar area and asked if we could still order dinner. The answer was yes. So we sat at a booth in the bar. Our server, Jose, was with us quickly and took our drink and dinner order. That was about it for 15-20 minutes. There were... More

We had not been in this Outback since last summer, the interior has lighter paint on the walls and the lighting is brighter (I no longer need a flashlight to read the menu). The food was typical Outback - good ingredients, well prepared, in a clean and friendly atmosphere. I was thinking about how the energy level has changed over... More

We always loved the Outback Steakhouse and had previously had good food and service. We have not been there in a few months but went last night with out-of-town guests. The place was empty! We were pleased that we didn't have to stand in line. We were immediately shown to a tiny two-person booth in the bar even though there... More

Went there for a birthday. Very small party. It took us 2.5 hours to get done. Service was none existant, food had to be sent back twice, others around us were having the same difficulty and the place not even busy. We asked for the manager 3 times before she arrived. Chef came out of the kitchen with a paltry... More

My friend loves Outback, so if we meet for dinner this is usually where we go at least a couple times a year. I prefer to eat in the bar because during Happy Hour you can get HH drink prices and they have some food choices as well. Plus, the bartender/server in the bar is great. I wish I knew... More

It is a bit pricy, but once or twice a year we eat there. I love their chicken dishes, my husband loves their steak which is always cooked to his liking perfectly. We both enjoy the fresh baked brown bread you get to munch on while waiting for your food.

I always have and always will love this place. Great dishes. A little spendy and dim in there. But hey! They have a hook for your coat and purse!

We travel a lot for business, and often will eat at Outback. Consequently, we've eaten there in a dozen states from Florida to Hawaii and in between. The Salem, Oregon Outback was the worst experience we've ever had in an Outback, and ranks right there with one of the worst for any restaurant. The service was worse than lousy. Our... More

We had a group of 14 ladies and they served everybody and accepted our individual checks as opposed to doing a group check. Also they let us chat away past closing time without a hint of asking us to leave. One steak was done less rare than requested and they replaced it immediately.

The food was great, unfortunatley, I feel the staff was a little inexperienced. We had four people in our group and two of the orders came back wrong. I'm not sure if it was communication in the kitchen or what, but we even had to wait about 45 minutes for some drinks ordered from the bar. They were super friendly... More
