“Love this place”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The service is good although the wait is annoying, I've been going there 2-3 times a year since they opened [maybe 7-10 years ago?] and there is always a long wait to be seated no matter what time or day. So we usually only go for special occasions like a birthday but never a holiday. I love love love the food my favorite is the superb prime rib, the wedge salad, and the grilled lobster tail. My only disappointment about a year ago was the tiny crab cakes they make them look much bigger in the menu.

“Good Value for the Dollar”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I visit this restaurant twice per year when staying in Manchester. The beef courses, whether steak, burger or prime rib are always good, nicely seared and cooked as requested. I've never had an issue with food being over or under cooked. The restaurant also serves up good poultry dishes.

The main courses are pretty large and I've never felt the need to get an appetizer. I'm always full with just the entree.

Outback also features a good selection of beers and wines, and I have to add that they take better care in keeping their wine at a proper serving temperature than several higher-end restaurants!

I've always had very good service at this restaurant, friendly, prompt and courteous.

“If you have to wait checkout the bar area for "first come first serve" booths.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We're big fans of Outback.

Too bad they don't serve Guiness, Smithwick's, or other Irish-type drafts.

The seasonal special meals are worth reviewing before you order your regular preferences.

Find the local OBSH on your GPS. They tend to be off to the side.

“outback- never again”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

The steaks are very very peppery and salty. To much $ for what you get. Also dont get the house margarita, it was the most sour drink i've ever had. I wouldn't go back to an outback. Rather spend the money somewhere else.
