“Worst Steak House in Town”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Outback in general is terrible, but this one has to be the worst. Have never gotten a good steak there, and with Herford House across the highway, and Texas Roadhouse a couple miles East, don't waste your money.

“Avoid if large group(s) are there”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Should have walked out and came back a different day, there was a kids birthday party with 20 kids, plus 1-2 adults per kid...this place was a nightmare. Pulled all the staff to acomodate the large group and left the rest seriously delayed. Took 15 minutes to get order for drinks, another 10 minutes to get the drinks. Placed order 25 minutes after being seated, salid arrived 30 minutes later (wrong, took 10 minutes to get that fixed), meal arrived 10 minutes later (40 minutes from placing order and an hour and 5 minutes from sitting down). Argh, steak under cooked (as always at this place), well done means when you cut it there is no blood coming out. After sending that back it was almost an hour an 30 minutes after sitting down I got that steak, now overcooked...should have walked out when we saw that large group.

The wait staff was really overwhelmed with that large group of maybe 50-60 people including kids.
