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.

The last two times my family has been to this Outback, we have sent steak back to be recooked. The previous visit took so long to get the steak back that everyone was finished eating except the one waiting on food. It was burnt so bad it could not be eaten. The visit this weekend was the about the same.... More

Ordered steak well done, what I got was cooked medium rare. My steak was over-spiced and I was not able to eat it. All the food had too much spices on it, even the French fries. Very disappointing. Staff is friendly but no satisfaction from the management on the food or the bill. Other Outback restaurants are NOT like this... More

We went looking for a nice meal. We arrived about 6:30 on Friday and were seated immediately. The waiter arrived very quickly and took our drink and appetizer order. The young man returned with our tea in moments and patiently took our meal order. He brought the hot bloomin' onion quickly and before we could finish it, he came with... More

Decided to eat at outback on a Sunday evening around 7:15pm. They close at 9 on Sundays. Waiter sounded very disinterested in being there. He wasn't pleasant in taking our order. Seemed hasty. We ordered steak, kabobs, baked potatoes and asparagus along with a plate of onion petals. Our order took over 30 minutes to arrive. The onion petals came... More

Dinner w my family...hadn't been to this Outback in months. The previous experience was not great so we chose not to return for awhile. At our last dinner there, the food was barely warm, steaks weren't the quality that Outback used to serve and service was slow and marginally acceptable. This time, we went in hoping for a better dinner... More

Went here for Father's Day meal but ended up disappointed. My husband's fries were cold and my steak wasn't cooked to order. The rest of our party had finished their meal by the time the manager brought me the same steak. No apology from the manager and the steak appeared to have been seared then microwaved. Wait staff was in... More
