“Good luck finding parking.”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

I have been at this Outback several times and parking every single time has been stressful.

Good luck finding a parking space!

Otherwise, it is an average Outback. Nothing special.

“consistently good”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

We always enjoy Outback. This month they have a special that includes a lobster tail along with your steak. So hubby and I both ordered that. I had my lobster steamed and hubby had his grilled. Though we loved our steaks, potatoes, salads, and bread, the lobster disappointed... it was a bit "rubbery" but I guess you get what you pay for! If you want good lobster, go somewhere else. Stick with steak at Outback and you will be most happy! I also love the bloomin' onion!!!
