“Overpriced, medocher food, & marginal service at this location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

While I have always liked Outback Steakhouse, whether in Hawaii, Washington State, or elsewhere. But on this occasion the Prime Rib was undercooked, fatty and relatively tasteless.

And the fun didn't stop there; the fries were undercooked and mushy, the bread was overcooked, and my soup was also lukewarm.

I would of complained, had the waiter returned soon after delivering our food. Yet, we didn't see him until we were finished with the meal, leaving half the Prime Rib and sides untouched.

In short, I will NOT be returning to this particular location, EVER!!!

“I will stick to with my own "BARBIE" next time Mate....”

Not a place to go for a steak. I will not eat here again nor do I recommend this restaurant. The only bright spot was the waiters attempt to serve up that awful chow. If thats how they do it down under , I will dine with the yanks.

“Travelled out of our way to be here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We just love the Outback Steakhouse chain. Went out of our way to find this one. As usual the food and the service was excellent. The lad at the front of house needs to cheer up a bit but it was so good we went back again this evening. Quesadillas a must!

“Not that good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

My dad and I went there because he had a $25 discount card. Dad had prime rib and he said it was good. I wanted healthy food so I picked from their low calorie dishes and chose salmon. I asked the waitress how to make it under 600 calories (like the menu said to do) and she said that it already is and that they add a little butter to the pan so it doesn't stick. My vegetable was too buttery and salty and so was the salmon. I didn't like it at all. Would not go back there even with a $25 discount.

“Food was just ok.”

I have been going to the outback for years and have always enjoyed the food. But I was disappointed with the quality of the food on my last visit. Not sure I will be going back anytime soon.
