This is a good casual spot to take the family for a nice well prepared meal. Steaks were perfectly cooked and flavours were spot on. Good sized portions earn full value for your hard earned money. Great service and pleasant staff. Only drawback was crowded and noisy so probably not the first choice if you want casual relaxed dining. 35-40 minute wait the night we visited but well worth it overall. Would definitely return.

We went here twice in the same week, once as a couple and again with our son. The food was very good both times, but the service on Saturday night wasn't up to our expectations. Although all the other tables had bread service on Saturday, we weren't offered the same. Once the crowd dissipated, the service improved. People were waiting to be seated, yet there were unoccupied tables. Probably because they didn't have enough employees to bus the tables, so the servers had to do that as well.

We hadn't been to Outback for five years and decided that it was time to try them. We found the food to be quite flavorful. We can recommend the fresh bread, the soup, the seafood, the lamb and to a slightly lesser extent the steak. We agree that the serving size has become smallish, but appropriate for us senior citizens. The service was standard chain restaurant patronizing style.
My complaint is that as a craft beer drinker, this restaurant has written me off, although through stupidity, not intentionally. The restaurant did carry two Sam Adams "cross-over" beers, so the server knew that some breweries produce more than one beer, so in answer to "What craft beers do you carry?" I didn't get just the brewery's name with no further information, as in some chains. But when asked what was the style of the second Sam Adams it became clear that he had never even been informed that such a thing as beer style exists and was reduced to mumbling. I gambled and tried the beer. It came served too cold to drink. When it warmed up so that I could taste it, it became clear that it was of a style not compatible with my meal.
I'll try again in five more years.
