“Good food. Bad bar.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Food was great. Service was good. Problem is when a family of 18 comes in and instead of waiting on a table or tables, they take up the whole bar. Kids and all. We got there, ordered, received our food, ate and left before they had finished talking and before they had ordered. Management should have stopped it. Children under 10 have no business sitting at the bar.

“What a MESS!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Where do I start? First, I am reluctant to enter a chain restaurant and this experience just reinforced that. Hostesses gossiping at front door told us a 15 minute wait for two people. We asked if we could find a booth in the bar? Sure, they rolled their eyes. It took 5 mins to order a wine and beer and 20 mins more to receive these complex drinks. Scared already, we ordered hamburgers. When they arrives..very strange, a server pushed a tray on a stand across the floor with NO ROLLERS? And left. Hmmm. No silverware. No condiments. We flag down someone, she rolls her eyes. She grabs silver from hostess stand, and takes 5 minutes to arrive back with condiments in paper cups. Impressive. Food? Well not a bad burger. Honestly we wished we had driven through Milo's, management You have a problem!

“Great Steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I like walking over to Outback from the hotel. Food is always great and staff is friendly. And, the blooming onion is my favorite starter.

“Love the salmon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I went to this restaurant with a large group. We only had to wait around 15 minutes even though we did not have a reservation. Service was prompt and accurate, and the food was excellent. There were plenty of great choices. I will definitely return.
