“Nothing surprising”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stopped on a business trip to grab a quick dinner, not fast food. This place was pretty typical - the food was well prepared and our server was pleasant and funny. This is a chain restaurant, but they met expectations.

“A chain store that doesn't feel like a chain store!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Our visit with nearly 100 people was pre-planned with Outback, and they were ready for us as soon as we walked in the door! The service and the food was excellent! Thank you so much!

“Better than expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Took a chance on this place after having been to an Outback before and having a bad experience. I have to say, I really enjoyed my meal. My expectations were exceeded. They have really made some great improvements on the menu.

“Good American Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Perfect American Entrees. Mostly good.
Dont take the chowder, its not like the seaport chowders and is not as great as them.
But, steaks are good and so are most other grill items.

“Slow Service - Not So Good Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We decided to go here with the family (10 of us) for a nice dinner. It was right around the corner and we had never tried it out (Longhorn always won)

The atmosphere is just as you would expect; the host was nice and got us seated as a table had cleared up.

We all ordered, and 45 minutes later none of our food was out. Then came out 5 dishes, then 15 minutes later 2 more...

3 people's dishes came out once everyone had finished their meals. A whole 90 minutes later..

The manager did come by and apologize, gave us his card and said that he didn't charge us for the food that came out in the end.

I ordered a steak, which was supposed to be medium, but came out well done (a bit too well done) , and same with my brother (his was actually burnt)

Almost all of the dishes were completely doused in salt.

I wont be going back there again, even though the manager gave us a coupon for $50 dollars off the next bill.

Longhorn , which is 2 minutes down the road will keep my business
