My wife and I lunched here recently and we were very impressed by our server Katie--very efficient and very friendly. My wife had the filet and I the sirloin. Both were prepared perfectly and were delicious!

My wife I had had a dinner date at Outback and were completely blown away by our experience. Brandon, our server, was friendly and on top of things, all while also helping run the bar. He was great. I noticed that the waiting staff really...help each other out and work as a team. The food was fantastic. The new Tasmanian Chili really stood out and was delicious. I hope they keep that on the menu. Thank you for the great experience.More

We received our order yesterday and when we got home ready to eat we noticed our Bloomin Onions were not suitable for consumption. The Bloomin onion burgers we ordered also did not have any blooming onions on them. We contacted our local outback steakhouse and...expressed our concern with the quality of the Bloomin onion (2 orders) and requested to come back for two new orders. The manager stated he could not help us and ended the call. As you can see from the pictures we have included from last nights meal, those were not blooming onions at all. They were individual petals and grease. We are very disappointed. We did not ask for a refund, we simply asked for a replacement of both Bloomin Onions. We hoped that there would be better food quality control and more professionalism when interacting with us. But that is not what happened. Shame on you. 11/17/21, Williamsburg, VA, OutbackMore

My wife and I lunched here yesterday and had another superb meal! She had the Filet Mignon, I had the Outback Sirloin. My sides were Baked Potato and Caesar Salad, she also had the Caesar Salad. We asked for one of Amy's tables and lucked...out. She is a great server and ensured that all our desires were satisfied.More

My wife and I lunched here earlier this month and we were really "Wow'd" by our service from Amy! She made our time here better than we ever encountered before. She did a great job and her friendliness was amazing! I had the Sirloin steak,...my wife the Filet Mignon--both came just as we ordered and were delicious.More

This is a chain restaurant that doesn’t hold up the quality of local, independently owned locations. This isn’t a bad restaurant,but there is better.

Horrible atmosphere. Only reason we went here was because of a gift card given at Christmas. Wood blinds were hanging off-kilter and filthy with dirt. Haven't eaten at an Outback in about 25 years, but Lord, it's not the same. The bloomin onion was a...sodden pile of grease as if it was put into a not hot fryer and sat in the grease. I had a filet (who knew you could get a bad filet), but it was stringy and tough. My husband had the ribeye which looked and tasted like it had been run over by a truck, cooked well done when it was supposed to be medium rare. Horrible food. Save your money and go 2 minutes down the road to CookOut for a good burger or Kephi for awesome Greek food.More

The new chicken with the same batter as Bloomin Onion was terrible (and did not come close to matching picture in the menu) and my spouse's Alice Springs chicken was very dry. Her potato was hard and undercooked. We both did not finish our food....Server was kind and helpful.More

Honestly I don’t think we had been to an Outback Steakhouse for over a year due to the last experience at the restaurant in California, Maryland, which was really bad. HOWEVER, our experience for dinner earlier this evening at the Williamsburg location was exceptional !!...Our waiter was Matthew and he was very attentive and just provided excellent excellent service. We both had steak and shrimp and the steak was cooked perfectly as we had ordered. We will definitely visit again!More

We had a good meal commensurate with Outback standards. Service was good as was the meal. But, the parking lot was severely littered with empty bottles, masks, and other trash. Definitely not on the managers radar.

I collect wine so wish to bring mine in restaurants as they will never sell the kind of wines I would bring in... that's fine but I like to bring wine and have no problem paying a reasonable corkage fee to do so. In the...past this restaurant did not allow that or put a ridiculously high price to prevent it... and on top of that the service and quality of food (for Outback) was subpar. NOT TONIGHT!! On a lark I called and Marcus the managing partner was gracious and said the fee was $12...very reasonable.:) I literally had not been here for 4 years but tonight the food was excellent and Marcus came by my table(a very nice touch) and Andrews service was perfect! It was a good night and I will be back! For info I eat at Fat Canary and Le Yaca in Williamsburg often... I had written off Outback... but no more! Nice to have a mid priced alternative with excellent service and a wonderful chnage. I suggest you go there and support them...I know I will. FYI I live in NC and travel there on business for 40+ years!:)More

We ate here on a Friday night and it wasn't to crowded at all. The waitress was always checking on us, which was nice. The place was very clean and looked taken care of. Overall one of the better Outback's I've been too.

To my knowledge I don't believe that a platter size portion is available. Call ahead to be sure or go on their website and look at their menu .
