Me and my wife went to Outback Steakhouse and our server Steve was awesome with a capital A. Food was great. If you are coming to Knoxville Tennessee stop and ask for Steve.

Late lunch with three of us. We ordered a total of an appetizer, two entrees, and three waters. Good food, served within 10 minutes and a $50 bill. Lots of choices in that area for your meal dollars.

The food was wonderful just as the service. It wasn't too pricey and everything came out cooked to order. If you're in town and want a nice meal, this is the place. Very welcoming!

The last restaurant I reviewed, I focused on my salad. I will start this out the same way, except this salad was pathetic. A small salad made of iceberg lettuce with carrots, red onions, cucumber, tomatoes, cheese & croutons. Mostly lettuce. The meal was okay....More
