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

Out for a family dinner on Sunday evening. One of a handful of people I. Restaurant. Very slow inattentive serine despite an apparent plethora of servers. Was served food on two broken dishes. What appeared to be the manager was told about the issue and it was dismissed with a brief "sorry about that." It's just ceramic...definitely no potential health... More

My husband and I went on a dinner date here, our first dinner date without our 9 month old. The service was very disappointing. We were seated very quickly, which was great and were given our drinks and bread immediately, minus the silverware. Our waitress was very kind, but after checking back with us to see if we needed a... More

We sat in the bar area and had great service. The drinks were ice cold (beer) and the wine was good. Our steaks were cooked great and tasted pretty good.

When you need a steak and do not know the area Outback fits the bill. Always cooked the way I ask. Service quick and friendly.

This is a return visit and I had hopes that they had improved. Three out of the four of us had to return our steaks because they were bad overcooked. Service was good and it was not servers fault. Kitchen staff needs to be replaced. Will look for other dinner options next time.

I love a good bone in ribeye. Oddly enough, Outback is one of the few that know how to cook a steak medium rare. Most places bring me a medium well, every time. Great salad also.

Steak was burnt and loaded mashed potatoes were cold. They started cleaning around me wich has to be done but this was excessive . The only high point was the young host was really friendly and he seated us promptly.
