Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Service poor, medium burger was raw, forgot my beer and took at least 10 minutes to get water refills after asking. This place needs a total overhaul

“Welcome Back”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Seems Outback has listened. After a few less than great meals at this location, it seems that quite possibly someone has made an effort to return to the essentials of restaurantry and OB
beginnings. No worries, good food, reasonable prices and friendly staff, thats it. No need for
pole dancers, laser light shows, just good food for a reasonable price. We were seated quickly, food was warm, tasty and the wait staff accomidating. We'll go back

“Food is terrible”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had coconut shrimp and steak. Steak was a bloody mess - looked like something crawled on my plate and died. The shrimp was awful. The service was good, though.

“Different location, Different quality”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We frequent Outback monthly in our area of Raleigh, N.C.. Were visiting Wrightsville Beach for the weekend and after having a couple of bad dining experiences, decided to go for an old reliable. We were wrong though. Even though we had call ahead seating and didn't have to wait long for a Saturday night when they were quoting 50 min wait times, our onion appetizer never came, our bread had a hole through the entire center so no bread and one of the 3 steaks ordered had a huge fat line and was overcooked. We were truly disappointed at this location and would not return if in the area again.

“Horrible! All you can eat shrimp special was terrible.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We went in because of the shrimp special. The shrimp "scampi" was about 8 little bay shrimp that were warm but had no flavor. It was definitely NOT scampi. It was absolutely tasteless. So we asked for the crispy shrimp. They had so muh batter and were like a poor quality frozen shrimp you would buy in the market. Really horrible. The steak amd potato were fine but you overpaid so badly because of the all you can eat shrimp it was grossly overpriced. We were pretty angry about it. They lost us as customers. Really a bad idea they had here.
