We went here for dinner on a Wednesday evening after it was recommended by some friends. We were seated quickly and the service was prompt. I was in the mood for a cocktail and asked my server if there were any drink specials. She suggested the watermelon margarita and we ordered 2. When the drinks arrived they were in tiny... More

We were in Hot Springs for weekend of our anniversary and decided we wanted steak. It was terrific and cooked the way we wanted it. No waiting on a Friday night. Waiter was superb. Recommend highly.

Food was OK service was terrible waitress was rude and encouraged the kids who sat separate from the adults to order off the adult menu instead of kids menu. I believe the manager had no clue I reserved a party of 40 to come in they seemed clueless when we arrived. Offered a stingy free desert to try to smooth... More

Friendly and efficient staff. Good welcome even though we arrived 25 mins before closing. Unfortunately one or two items were missing off the menu as the day was graduation and they had been mega busy. Steak was cooked perfectly tender and juicy. Not keen on the bbq sauce though. Still a good meal in pleasant surroundings. Worth a visit.

Good food as usual. I had the Alice Springs chicken and that is always good. As usual I love the ranch dressing. They gave me all I wanted. I think my server might have been new but she tried very hard.

You get hit a dollar for mashed potatoes, a dollar for chopped salad, more for a tiny soup instead of salad. It's ridiculous to be charged for these things. Food is decent, service is decent, but I think there are better values out there in the same price range. I had a prime rib French dip for lunch for 12.49,... More

Food and service were fine as a typical Outback, drinks were like $7.50 each, reasonable. At the bottom of the check there was a $9.00 and some odd cents liq. tax! Asked for the manager and he said it was a city liquor tax of 32 %, right 32%! So let's do the math, $7.50 times 1.32 equals $9.90 per... More

After attending a long track meet at Lake Hamilton, we were starved. When we saw Outback, we were happy to not have to settle for fast food. Once seated, we smelled an "off" odor. Looking around we noticed all empty booths and tables nearby with half and uneaten plates of food. After inquiring we learned someone had literally thrown up... More

Service was excellent. We didn't have to wait for a table during rush. The food was hot & it came out quickly. Our dishes were delicious but the lettuce wasn't so fresh in my salad which was disappointing. Other than that everything was great.

Thank Jill D
