Took my boys here after a USC basketball game. Friendly staff and attentive to our needs. Outback is probably the most consistent chain I know. If you do have an occasional issue, they always make it right.

I had a gift card for Outback so we decided to use it on a Saturday night. When we arrived the wait was one hour, but because we had the card and no where else to go we decided to wait. It was crowded and uncomfortable, though the hostesses were friendly and sympathetic. Once we were seated the waiter was... More

OK, it's an Outback with all of what that brings. Gingerbread Cookies Martini needs to be on your "try it" list! Casos are fine as is the Steakhouse Salad. Bloomin Onion petals for the lighter appetite. Dipping sauce for the onion seemed hotter than normal. French Onion Soup and Clam Chowder are good to very good. They could turn down... More

We ordered two prime ribs medium rare. What arrived was a thin cut that was rare at best. It had lots of gristle/connective tissue. My wife sent hers back and what was returned was overcooked for medium. The service was great and the sides were outstanding as in the past. Avoid the prime rib - it's not worth it. (Guess... More

There was a couple of issues with our food coming out but what I so appreciated was the our waiter and the manager quickly owned up to the issue and fixed it without... More

This is how far Outback has fallen. Wife ordered prime rib and what she received was a thin piece of meat that was mostly fat. She asked for the manager and she seemed surprised by the prime rib. To their credit she quickly brought out another that was what was expected in the first place. I ordered the French dip... More

I normally visit the local Outback when traveling as the food is always good. I ordered the new small snack size blooming onion, which I've had before at other locations and boy was I disappointed. My experience at this location started off with slow waitress service at the bar. Seems like she was more interested in taking care of the... More

I really had higher hopes for our meal but it just seemed to be missing something "more". I did give 4* because the lovely waitstaff were all smiles and attentive. Even if the new waiter seemed a bit unprepared. My mom ordered potato soup - it was good not spectacular but worth ordering again. We both had a cocktail and... More

We stopped at this Outback after a day of traveling. Our waitress was phenomenal,friendly and on top of our every request. Our food was top notch. Would definitely return here if we are ever in Columbia again.
