Ordered Manhattans. Excellent and served with black cherries. Ordered caesar salad the Special 6 oz steak, served with your choice of a side. I got the baked sweet potato. Excellent and my... More

I order Curbside Takeaway from this location often, and every single time they get my order wrong. I have to go through each item my family and I order before I leave the parking lot. If the order isn't wrong then I'm waiting 30-40 minutes when my order should have been ready in 20 minutes. Complain to their corporate and... More

For an Outback franchise, the experience is fairly typical. The food quality is slightly below your standard Outback. Service is hit and miss.

Stopped in for lunch. I ordered a Grilled Chicken on the Barbie and a side of vegetables off the 600 calorie menu. The chicken was juicy and the barbeque was a tad bit spicy but still a perfect pairing with the grilled chicken. I was not a fan of the vegetables as they were large slices. Our server was very...

What a dive....rundown interior, dirty bathroom, slow, slow slow service and inferior quality. Outback has definitely joined the ranks of Applebee's and Ruby Tuesday for gross, inferior quality food at high prices. One of our dishes came out wrong (kitchen error, not server error) food was barely lukewarm after a 25 minute wait in a nearly empty restaurant. Side salad... More

We hadn't been here for a while because of bad reviews but thought we would try it again and glad we did. My husband and I both had ribeye steak with baked potatoes and house salad, the salad never fails, delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked to medium and the service was perfect. The potato was delicious and red hot... More

Saturday night on the road and staying nearby. Line out the door moved quickly. Service in the bar was great. Prime Rib fantastic. Filet had spicy seasoning but we should have asked for no seasoning, Really enjoyed our meal. Wedge salad was top notch. Would go back.
