Apparently even with a reservation and after being told that because we had a reservation, our wait would be only 15 minutes after the reservation time and not 30, the hostess couldn't get her act together and have a table ready. When we told her we had waited long enough, her response was: "It will only be a few more... More

My bride and I had a late supper @ this restaurant last night. It was decent. Not great, but certainly very good. I'm frankly amazed that a steakhouse chain doesn't always have at least one chef in the kitchen who knows how to cook a steak 'Black and Blue' (black = charred on the outside, and blue = rare on...

Four friends visited this Outback before going to a UVA basketball game. We chose this restaurant on Outback's overall reputation of good steaks, which we all wanted. Much to our disappointment the cuts of the steaks were cheap and not cook well at all. One of us ordered the bone in ribeye which is usually very delicious in other steak... More

Amazing cheese fries and bread. Wait staff is very friendly and the interior of the restaurant has wonderful lighting and decor. The attached deck for outdoor seating is very comfortable as well. I always go here for family dinners.

Ordered the Petite Filet. Was served a sirloin of shoe leather texture. Our waiter passed along my dissatisfaction to the manager, who offered to remedy the problem by having another "filet" prepared. When it came out it too was a sirloin - albeit a more tender one. I never like to send food back to the kitchen and would certainly... More

I took my wife to the Outback for her birthday. I reserved our table using the online reservation system on their website. Our table was ready when we arrived. Once we sat down the drinks were ordered along with the AUSSIE-TIZERS® (Blooming Onion). Right after the drinks arrive, so did our blooming onion. For the main course we had the... More

On-line ordered curbside pick-up. The process was simple, the pick-up and payment was very convenient. The food was consistent with in-restaurant dining I have experienced at other Outback locations. I wanted to eat in my hotel room while I continued working, and wanted more than a sandwich. Other than being a bit of a challenge with plastic dinnerware, it was... More

Ordered to-go and was greeted by the most pleasent waitress! She was wonderful as I had never been to Outback and didn't really know what I was craving. Food was fantastic and cooked perfectly. Thank you so much!

Whenever you think of a chain restaurant, "fine dining" seldom comes to mind. Surprisingly, OUTBACK on route 29 in Charlottesville is an exception. I can honestly say I have not had a bad steak there and I eat there a lot. It is our go-to place for a quick dinner or a late lunch. The wait staff is very good... More
