I had the fish tacos which were dry. The slaw was just chopped cabbage with no dressing. Presentation was fair. My husband got a steak sandwich which he said was good but the portion of fries were about the size of a McDonald's small.

I stopped back here with family in July and we enjoyed our meal. The service was decent (a bit slower than we're used to, being Northerners), but the food was very good (steaks of course) and really hit the spot after a hard day of moving. The prices are reasonable and I would definitely stop in again!

We were looking for a place to eat on Saturday night and I called ahead and was told it was a 5-15 minute wait for a table for 4. Not bad so they put us down. Once we got to the restaurant we only waited about 5 minutes. Looked like the crowd was finishing and leaving. We had a great... More

With subdued lighting and air-condition the mood was set for a good steak diner--which it was. the weiter was friendly , helpful, made suggestions.and was attentive. The food was cooked as ordered and hot. It was a very pleasant evening-we knew we would be back

The usual, outback special. Sirloin, loaded baked potato, fresh salad. Add a Wallaby Darned - down under ( extra shot) and you will be more than satisfied.

Last night, we went to Outback and our server was super nice and the floor manager came to our table to make sure everything was OK. Not only that, the food was amazing.

Decided to go to the Outback Steakhouse in Cookeville, TN for Memorial Day luck with friends. Arrived and was met by a great hostess shown our table. We had a great wait staff greet us and took our drink order. She came back to take our order. She was very professional, knew the menu inside and out. Most of all... More

Stopped to eat in return trip home. Our server was good and attentive. Atmosphere was okay except for some conflicting music that was coming from the kitchen. Not sure why blaring bagpipe music was competing with the dining room music. Men's restroom was awful. Had to hold my breath to use it. Very rotten water smell. Food good. Atmosphere Not.
