Have eaten at Outback a number of times before and been pleased if not excited, this one was so bad I'm unlikely to return. While the server was friendly and extremely efficient though he did not ask why I left much of my food on the plate, nothing from an odd tasting soggy roll to a salad whose ingredients had... More

Saturday, November 12, 2016 - 11:15am It's been a long, long time since I have been inside an Outback Restaurant. And the only thing of interest to me is basically the Blooming Onion. However, today my husband said "Let's splurge a little". So, okay, let's splurge then. Let me say right off the bat that I had read the reviews... More

Had a pretty good meal here except for the baked potato. Was way over cooked. Other than that the meal ( steaks) were very good. Vegetables were very good also.

My wife and I went here for her birthday dinner. The waitress was attentive and polite. The food was also hot and very good. We loved the bacon cheese fries. I had the fried shrimp, my wife had the crab cakes. Everything was great till I went to the restroom before leaving. The men's room had an overpowering urine smell.... More

Service was a bit slower than usual, but OK. My steak was good, but a bit on the "fatty" side. My wife had to send her steak back as it was over cooked. The replacment was very good.

This is a typical chain restaurant. We ate there on 10/2/16 and my son found a long hair in his sandwich. I had a burger and it was average at best. Our server, Scott, was very good but beyond that I doubt I will come back anytime soon.

Son said he need a great streak and got one. I had one with lobster tail. If you like this chain, you won't be disappointed. They were spot on with the wait time. Kids hung out side, hubby got cocktails at bar and watch games on tvs.
