Good for the Family

You would think the day after Thanksgiving we couldn't look at any food but somehow we managed to put away quite a bit. The birthday child gets to pick the restaurant where they eat so grandma and grandpa took the family (7) to Outback. We shared Cheesy Fries and The Bloomin Onion and of... read more

The servers and manager were incredible. They had our food ready for us and they were so on top of everything. We had a party of 24 people and they had us in and out in under an hour. They were so nice and helpful. Thank you to the staff for being so great!!

Great atmosphere, great food, impeccable service, clean. Steaks are awesome, but I have never had a bad meal. I have had an overcooked steak a time or two but management is prompt to correct the problem. The bar is outstanding and serves excellent drinks. The staff gives personal service and treat you like family.

The service was great from the start. The food was on point. I had the prime rib deal for $22. The only real complaint was the restrooms were very nasty.

A very disappointing dinner! Will not go there again. Service and salads were good but steaks, salmon, and chicken fingers not good: Victoria portobello fillet and 10oz rib eye were overcooked. Rib eye was 3/8 in. thick. Salmon with Mango Salsa was served without the salsa and when asked for it the server provided a very small ramekin on the... More

Hat's off to Outback for listing "grown up" food on their kid's menu. The Junior Ribs, as well as the steak medallions, were mmmmmm good. We were thrilled watching our grandkids clean their dinner plates so quickly. Maybe Outback will offer kid-sized salads, someday soon.

We joined our friends for dinner and had great service and the food was excellent. My steak was ordered med. rare and they hit it right on. We had an excellent waitress and a very enjoyable evening.

Our onion petal appetizer was delicious! However, the Prime Rib Sandwich did not arrive as ordered without cheese and onions! Our servers (we had a trainee) took it back and said a new one would be out shortly. Meanwhile, the other diner's food was delivered and they finished before the Prime Rib sandwich came out. The french fries were too... More

We have lost faith in our Outback at home but we thought we would try out of town in hopes that things were like they used to be. Sadly it appears the franchise has gone downhill. Forgot to serve our salads. Got hubby's order wrong and my potato was over cooked. Wouldn't wat here again.

Great place to eat and relax after golfing in the Harrisonburg area. Good food and good service. Typical Outback so you will not be disappointed.
