“Terrible experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2007

No strangers to Outback, on vacation we went for a dinner we were sure would be dependably good. 4 adults and 1 child. We arrived around 7:00 and were told we'd have a 30-minute wait. At 48 minutes we asked and were told we were one table away from being seated. At 58 minutes we got seated, but AFTER a 5-person party were seated who'd arrived after us (without reservations). When we told management we were unhappy, they did nothing to make us feel better. Once seated, our waitress repeatedly made mistakes - missed one drink, forgot about the appetizer we'd ordered until we reminded her, no garnishes in bloody mary (unlike every other Outback we've eaten at), missed refilling sodas, forgot two side dishes until reminded - these are examples, not a full report. Save your Outback experiences for another location - this one has serious problems.
