I will say this particular Outback is one of the better Outback's in proximity to our home. We will always choose it over the one in Winston or Hickory hands down. Out last visit was the past weekend, we were a party of 8. We were attended to quickly, other wait staff assisted when we had a spill at our table, our food was delicious and came out very timely, overall a great experience. I'm totally unsure how some of the prior negative reviews could even be written about this location - when in Blowing Rock and wanting a great meal - this is a must stop location.
