“Raw prime rib & hurried waitress”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

I usually love Outback restaurants. Not this one! The restaurant was only half full & yet our waitress constantly acted like she was in a huge hurry. When she checked on our table, she was gone, before we could even say anything. It was "Everything ok?" as she was whizzing back to talk to the other staff standing around. I ordered my prime rib medium, but it was rare or barely cooked. Luckily I wasn't very hungry after appetizer, salad, bread, cooked veggies & drinks. I ate 2 bites & asked for a take out box, so that I could heat it to the proper doneness the next day.

“Not as Good as many Outbacks”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Food wise this location is fine, as long as you take it out and do not eat in. Last I knew they allowed smoking and walking in and immediately smelling smoke is a super negative.

“Average In All Regards”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

I ate there once at the bar. Very little server interaction; and a warm not hot entree was delivered. This was rectified with no demonstrated concern. Given that an Outback tab is no longer small; I'd rate it at poor value for the money spent. Outback portions and service have diminished at many locations in recent years; and this location affirms my opinion.
