“Service was excellent. Everything else.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

I usually don't care for the big chains but after seeing Outback's ad for the all you can eat shrimp and steak, we decided to check it out.

My filet was very good, but nowhere near what is depicted in their advertising. The ads don't tell you the meat in the photo was not the advertised $14.99 cut as inferred but actually, the more expensive $23 cut. When my friend told the manager that her $14.99 cut was tough and difficult to eat, the manager offered to replace/upgrade the cut to the filet. The manager didn't make it clear that along with the upgrade to compensate for a tough cut of meat, the price would go up as well. The size of the shrimp (regardless of the type ordered) literally were "shrimpy." Tiny shrimp.

Other than that, the service was excellent. Our wait person Lauren was super attentive, friendly, bubbly and just the type of server you want when going to a restaurant. Whatever she gets paid, it isn't enough.

When rated this review "Very Good," is certainly wasn't the quality and size of the food which came nowhere near the advertising photos or the typical chain restaurant atmosphere. It was for the service and attentiveness we received.

“not so good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

I had the steak and all you can eat shrimp! what a disappointment! the steak wasen't too bad but the size of the shrimp was a laugh! what you see as their advertisement on television doesn't even come close to what you really get. the shrimp was the size you can put in a salad. will go elsewhere for dinner in the future.

“Slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Bad experience. Slow service. It took forever to get our app. then a long time for our salads but then our entree came out before we finished our salad (which by the way I thought a classic wedge had bacon and no balsamic reduction). They mixed our steak temps up and gave me the wrong veg. We spoke with a manager but were apparently too understanding because they did nothing for us on the bill. It'll be a long time if I ever go back
