This is not my first experience eating at an Outback Steakhouse. I've eaten at ones in LA, MS, CO, KS, and TN. But, it was the worst!
My daughter and I arrived after the lunch rush (around 2 pm). The host gruffly asked how many in our party, then led us to a table. My 7 y.o. asked, "are they not allowed to smile?"
Our server was SLOW with everything. Slow to come with our drinks, slow with our order (another table's order arrived BEFORE ours and WE ordered before they did! They had a different server).
We consumed the entire loaf of bread waiting on our food to arrive.
I ordered the sirloin with coconut shrimp and sweet potato with NO CINNAMON!!!! I guess the cooks don't look too carefully at the ticket because guess they added to my sweet potato!!! CINNAMON. The steak was bland AND luke warm. I was not offered any steak sauce to help with "taste", either, nor did I see the server to ask him for something to help with choke it down. (A good steak does NOT require sauce, however)
My daughter ordered chicken fingers with french fries and chocolate milk. Since she had eaten so much bread (and colored all of the book WAITING for our food) she ate only a few fries. Although, the chicken fingers did look more appetizing than my steak!
We were not offered any drink refils, either.
I ordered a cheesecake, to go, and asked for boxes for our leftovers. We had to wait 7 minutes to get the boxes AND he'd forgotten our cheesecake (and our tab, too). So, another 4 mins passed before I could pay and LEAVE. When he finally brought the tab, he gave me the wrong one, too, so I had to track him down to let him know that we DID NOT consume $50 worth of food and drinks!
In the meantime, my daughter went to the restroom only to find the handicapped toilet was OVERFLOWING. I inspected the bathroom, just to make sure she wasn't seeing something that wasn't, and found it unclean-a bathroom like one would find in a gas station. YUCK.
Now I know why there is ONLY ONE Outback Steakhouse in the Northland! (as opposed to several Longhorn's & Texas Road Houses') I won't be coming back.
