Not a good experience this time. First they sat us at a table and a few minutes later sat another party right next to us. The seats were joining each other so the other party was about a foot from us. Two rather loud ladies talking about their hospital experience. The restaurant was nearly empty-WHY? We asked to be moved and it took a very long time and was awkward. We should not have been put in this position. The Ceasar salad was terrible, the dressing tasted like straight garlic juice. The steaks were overcooked and dry. Big chunks of Broccoli w/o any seasonings or butter.

On the upside our waitstaff was excellent. (Not the hostess, she was clueless for the seating situation.) They saw that we didn't eat our Ceasar salads and offered to sub another side. Frozen margaritas and sweet potato fries were good. Not good enough however to warrant going back. Please learn how to cook steaks, otherwise what's the point?

The Outback is very conveniently located just in front of the Courtyard Marriott, making for an easy dinner when staying at the hotel. the staff was very friendly and attentive, making for a pleasant experience all around.

We got the special. That was a mistake. They "ran out of the small backed potatos" that came with the special and substituted french fries. The only Baked Potatos that they had were the large ones. We were not allowed to have those with the special. We were forced to take french fries or green beans or some other vegetable. I guess Outback in Statesville never heard of Customer Satisfaction. They ended up losing my wife and I as customers because of the difference in cost of the small and the large baked potato. Outback in Statesville, NC OBVIOUSLY cares more about adding a couple of pennies to it's bottom line than it does satisfying it's customer. We were regulars at Out Back of Statesville, NC. Now, We will NEVER go back there!

Just another chain steakhouse. Average. Not anything to get excited over or to complain about. Good service.

I order their Alice Springs chicken quesadillas off the Appetizer section as my main entree because they are delicious. Usually have great service though we try to get there between 4pm and 5:30p so we don't have to wait 90 minutes!!
