“6 Happy people”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

6 people and 6 different dishes and there was NOT one complaint. We went to the 82dn Ave location near Johnson Creek Blvd. The steaks came "exactly" as ordered for rare, medium or well done and they were "DELICIOUS". Added lobster tail to 2 of the steaks with one steamed and one grilled. The steamed was better (I have also ordered the grilled in the past). We will be back!!

“Not very impressive”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We were given gift cards and were excited to try this place out, since we hadn't been to an Outback in a long time. We had a short wait and were seated. We noted that there were several lower-cost options on the menu, which was good because most of the steak dinners there were pretty expensive.

Two of us ended up getting a small sirloin with a choice of two side dishes, and another got a chicken dish. The steak was good, and my marinated-mushroom side dish was decent; however, my salad was mostly iceberg lettuce which had a good amount of brown edges on it, along with a big chunk from the heart of the lettuce.

Most noteably, our waiter was pretty slow most of the time and not very attentive. Our son ended up leaving while we waited for the bill, since that was taking awhile and he needed to be somewhere.

Overall the food was good, but the slow service and the expense of steak dinners in general solidified in my mind that this is not a place we need to visit again soon.
