“Do you want a tendon running through your sirloin?”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Let me start out saying- walking in to our reserved ahead 10 person table- on a Sunday atmosphere seemed quaint. Half our orders were cooked wrong. One was forgotten about. Most of the sirloins had a tendenous fiber running through them. The first salad served I found to be tasty-but much smaller portion then most steak houses or any other restaurant for that matter. Fries with steak were small portioned. As I am watching our waitres she seemed very stressed as 2 hostesses waited up front watching the tv. It wasn't busy on our night. I realize we had a little bigger crew but why didn't anyone help her out a little.

Point blank- the sirloins were terrible. Tasteless, tendenous, ick. Choking it down, I left some on my plate. Then we heard some loud commotion coming from the kitchen area. Sort of someone singing the big "O". The entire restaurant heard it. Never again going there. The quality of deserts seemed okay. At least our company kept the good spirits. Don't waste your time and money. Go somewhere else. Seriously.

“Poor service”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Our server was terrible. He only had a couple of tables in his section. Spent most of his time in the kitchen. Got the soup & salad and it took forever to come out?? His shirt looked as if he had worn it for several shifts prior to today. It opens @ 11:00 and this was 12:15. It was dirty and wrinkled. His apron was FILTHY. I would go back but would not sit in his section. I'll remember the name. The food was fine.

“NEVER AGAIN”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Upon first entering the restaurant everything seemed good, Except there was nobody up front... Normally tha'ts understandable but there were only two tables in the whole restaurant at the time we came in... The gentleman that did come to the front was very polite and seated us at a booth... our waitress was pleasant at first... and we ordered our food, it seemed like a long time to get our food but that was fine, when we did get our food which was 3 burger and fries and a sirloin plate, all four dishes were horrible the fries on all 4 plates were saturated in grease so much when you picked one up it was so soggy full of grease, the burgers were so dry and bland with no taste of any kind, the steak was soggy and chewy.upon on receiving the bill The waitress set our bill on the table for some reason came back every minuet when we weren't quite finished to collect the money. we felt like she was trying to push us out the restaurant now that we were done I really hope this isn't a daily experience for them but it was horrible for us and we will never return

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We eat at Outback a lot, not this location wherever we are traveling for work. But this was the most disappointing trip to this franchise we have had. Our waitress was good and the atmosphere was just like all the others. What set this place apart from the others was the food. I don't know if all the prices at the restraunts went up or it's just this one but it was way more than usual. And not to mention we got alot less than we usually do like the grilled shrimp and steak combo for $18 with only 4 pieces of shrimp not hardly. We won't be returning to this one again. We may try somewhere else but if it's like this one we won't be returning at all.

“Quick service & delicious food!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Will definitely be eating here again...we stayed across the parking lot at the Country Inn & Suites & they delivered our order right to our door...at no charge! What a perk when you are tavelling with a cranky toddler!
The order was delivered VERY quickly, piping hot & delicious!
