Typical outback but my wife's steak loaded with fat. Told the waiter but still had to pay for it. When in Asheville eat local.

If you are a meat lover, you have to try this restaurant. Great steak and prime rib! They really know how to cook it. My favorite appetizer is the fried onion flower, very good. Also the stuff is really nice. I have been here 3 times, and every single one was more than enjoyable. I recommend you give it a... More

We enjoyed our meal, the 6 ounce sirloin is just the right size, the salad consistent and that new chocolate caramel cookie sundae was absolutely YUM! We don't generally frequent large restaurant chains but Outback is always a sure thing and the service, atmosphere & food were all as good as we expect from Outback.

Six of us went by on Wednesday night. We were seated right away. This is a typical outback. The steaks were fantastic. And the services was very good.

The only person who liked the food was my 7 year old. Can you really screw up chicken tenders? My Wife's dinner was overcooked, My Daughters was drenched in buffalo sauce and mine didn't have any. It's been around 5 years since we had been to the Outback and will probably be 5 more before we go back.

No issues here. Give it a shot during their all you can eat shrimp specials. Their shrimp is cooked better than red lobster, which says a lot for a chain restaurant. Red lobster the servers appear to hide when you order one of their all you can eat specials, not at Outback, they gladly bring out as much as you... More

My husband and I dined between lunch and dinner hours at this Outback on July 3, 2015. When we arrived there was a sign stating they were remodeling. The out door seating area was closed. We were greeted promptly no one else was waiting, but we were given a buzzer and told it would be 5 to 10 minutes before... More

nothing amazing about this. Though it does not represent an Australian restaurant it is one of those themed restaurants. Food was substantial just like any other oversized American restaurant. Give this one a go if you get a chance. Staff were very engaging
