Very good experience with four grandchildren and family, service was very good our server was patient and thoughtful with little ones and group as a whole. A table of 9 with kids, Wow she was great. As always food was good, cooked to our choice and delicious.

This restaurant was close to our hotel. Staff were friendly, the drinks and food good. When next in the area we will definitely be back.

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.

Father's day meal. Some busy. Waitress didn't come often enough. Not too attentive. Didn't take dirty dishes when she finally came to refill our drinks. Mgr. Removed them. Food so so. I had special beef with Marcela sauce. Some tougher pieces others like butter. I really wasn't happy with the meal. Left most of it on plate. You would think... More

typical Outback. Food was good, service was good.... not as good as some of the other Outback's we have eaten at. Really slow & servers were more interested in gossiping than helping customers.

What can you say about an Outback Restaurant that hasn't been said. This one is like others in the chain. The food is consistent and reasonable. You seldom get a bad dinner nor is it ever outstanding. But it is near JMU and our grandson who is a student said it was his favorite. The food was good, the atmosphere... More
