“A Favorite”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We always have a good meal at Outback. Our recommendations are steak (the under-$10 choice is fine) and coconut shrimp. We did get an overcooked steak once; we complained, they cheerfully replaced it and the manager came over to apologize. A bit noisy. Disappointed that they are open for lunch only on weekends. There's usually a short line, sometimes a little longer.

“Such a deal!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

The current Outback deal of a small steak plus a lobster tail for 15 bucks can't be beat. The steaks were cooked properly (rare, medium rare, and medium) and the lobsters was delicious. Mine was grilled and across the table was steamed. Perfect! Additionally, the service was spot on. On the whole, it was a wonderful experience.

“What has happened here???”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Outback Steakhouse was one of my favorite places to eat. We went for dinner last night, what a disaster!

The wait for a table was 40 minutes, once seated we were greeted by a more than "surly" waitress who took our drink order like she was doing us a favor. She came back to take our dinner order in a little better spirits though.

The Outback Special (6oz sirloin) is a favorite of two family members so that's what they ordered. I ordered the Bloomin’ Burger, a hamburger with onion pieces and cheese.

It took 20-25 minutes before dinner arrived, not too bad as the restaurant was, as always, very busy. The steak, one ordered medium, was the size of a small orange and looked like it had been cooked for three days. The other, ordered medium rare, was a little bigger and cut on the strangest slant you've ever seen, kinda like an unoccupied teeter totter! When cut it bled profusely as though it was browned on both sides and slapped onto the plate. It was so tough we could not cut through it with that “big boy” knife they give you! My hamburger was near cold and really greasy but it came with fries that were hot and delicious. Sorta like the burger waited around in the kitchen a while for the fries to be ready!

The "slanty", knife impenetrable, steak was sent back and replaced with one that was cut and cooked to perfection. This was probably the first time we've sent a meal back. The manager came over (to his credit unrequested) and apologized profusely. The again "surly" waitress never bothered to come back to check on us after the replacement meal was served.

The experience was an overall “thumbs down” and I doubt we’ll be back any time soon. There are too many other excellent restaurants in the area to risk our hard earned dining budget here.

“Consistency”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

If you've been to an Outback you pretty much know about their quality and offerings. Quality of food is good. Service is friendly and courteous. Drinks,wines and beers are varied. Only negative is it's sometimes busy at dinner time. Worth waiting for something good.
