Recently visited Outback again after a long absence... based on word of mouth that quality had declined. Pleasantly surprised... everything seemed top notch. Blooming onion was spot on. I enjoyed the prime rib finished over the grill and couldn't get over the flavors. Garlic mashed potatoes were very good. My only minor complaint is that the bread could have been a bit warmer. Other members of my party, a couple of whom often bring home leftovers from any restaurant we go to, left with clean plates. Attentive yet not overbearing service made us want to return again.
