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.

We love the convenience of Outback's Curbside Pickup. Everything was delivered as I ordered, but it was lukewarm. We arrived at the designated time & only waited a few minutes for the food to be brought to the car--but when we got home (we only live 7 minutes away), the food wasn't hot. Thankful for our microwave.

We always love going to Outback for their delicious steaks. We weren't disappointed. It's always nice to find new places to eat, but when traveling it is also nice to know exactly what to expect.
