Our family of four had dinner here. Was delicious. Reasonably priced. And very filling. Was a 20 min wait for a Tuesday night but film festival was in town.

This restaurant is one of a chain, but this should not discourage people from taking it seriously. I don't know how other Outback Steakhouses are run or how their food is, but the Traverse City one is truly wonderful.

Their food, especially their steaks, are cooked perfectly - every time. And some of their steak meals are exceptionally good value, especially if you choose the smaller size portions. A few days ago we had our usual perfectly cooked steak meals there, and the two meals together cost $21.

In addition to perfectly and reliably cooked food, this restaurant has an exceptionally attentive, well-trained wait staff. In addition, managerial staff will walk around being sure everything is fine, and if it is not fine (unusual), they will fix it.

These meals aren't exotic or adventurous, but they are very, very good. Someone is doing a fantastic job training the staff and making sure the cooking is done as it should be. I am impressed.

While being in Traverse we should have eaten at a local eatery. There are so many nice ones. Our Outback dinner wasn't that good. Small salad, 1/2 of my steak special was grisled and tough.

We are long time regulars. The managers run a tight ship so that everything runs smoothly. A great staff. We always order the coconut shrimp and the Outback Special - a sirloin steak - medium rare to medium. A really friendly place that tries to please. In Traverse City this is not just another average chain to visit. For those who don't like to wait, there is always the call ahead feauture.
