“Out with hubby ”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Went out for an early dinner. Drinks were great and service impeccable. Waitress was very attentive and food came out in an orderly fashion not all at the same time. Great bite to eat

“Waste of time and money.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We went on July 4th for dinner around 8:00. The place was not crowded at all. After the waiter took our order is was 15 minutes before he brought our drinks and a small loaf of bread good for a child. Since it was the 4th they were offering a free blooming onion. Well by the time that arrived it was another 20 minutes and since it was free it was half the size that you would normally get if you paid for it. It then took another 1/2 hour for our meals. My wife's pork chop was terrible. My string beans were not cooked and hard. They gave me 3 tiny pieces of Filet Mingon for 24.99 with 3 tiny potatoes underneath. What a joke. My son had the ribs and the ff were cold. I saw another table asking where is their food. Another table was asking for someone to come and take their order. The manager seemed more interested talking to the girls that allegedly work there although it appears nobody really works from my observation. As a owner of 2 restaurants this place needs a major house cleaning. Stay away

“Don't do it!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Even if you are very, very hungry don't do it! The food is tasteless, leathery and often as not, not the way you ordered it. Like many of the chain restaurants, it was a very good deal when it first appeared. The portions were large, the food was very good and the service was efficent. Some corporate bigwigs decide that if you pare back everything, you can make more profit. Save your money and eat at local Mom & Pop place.

“It Is What It Is...”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

If you are looking for aged prime steaks, then this is not the place for you. If you want a well prepared steak at a decent price, then go to the Outback. There are some parking issues at this particular location, as it is located in a strip mall with several other businesses and is near the train station so commuters also park there. Gets very crowded on weekends. We prefer to eat at the bar - the bartenders are great and offer great drinks and service! I recommend the steak salad, and the lobster tails are quite good as well.
