I frequent Outback, and came to this one after visiting with friends out of town.

The appetizers came and were great until I noticed the dish was less than clean. Having worked at Outback before I could tell they had only run the dishes through one of the two necessary passes through the dishwasher. Please take the time to wash the dishes properly. I would rather wait a couple minutes so I can eat off clean tableware.

Aside from that important detail, service was good, and timely.

For me it is all about the beef. NY Strip or Porterhouse -- why order anything else. It is a steakhouse.

Some people experience long waits for a table here. I rarely experience a wait for three reasons:

We go earlyish
We avoid weekends and holidays
I don't wait more than 10 mind for a table anywhere. I go elsewhere and try again at another time.

So, back to the beef. Good seasonings, usually cooked to order. But you have to believe the server's definition. Remember folks it may serve seafood, but it is a steakhouse. It may serve booze, but it is a steakhouse.

Now if they can turn off the tv...

No matter where I go in any city or town that has an Outback Steakhouse I am never dissapointed. You can always count on good service and delicious meals to ease your taste buds.

The only thing I can recommend about the Outback Steakhouse is this......Please let the customer finish one course before bringing another...stop being in such a hurry....I get my appetizer and take a bite and then poof my salad...then before I can get half way through the salad..poof my entree? Slow down!! Let us enjoy it all before it gets cold.

One of the First Outbacks opened in California (1999). The Rack of Lamb used to be 16.99 or 17.99, it is 25.99 now.
