They have a 4-course meal special going on for $15 with soup, salad, entree & dessert! Can't beat that deal!

“Steak and Beer”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

A great steak and potatoe and beer. What else do you need for a fine meal. OK, the salad was good to.

“Typical Outback”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Easily accommodated party of 7. Others had bloomin burger and baked chicken. I had tilapia with crab meat, salad, and water. Others really liked their dishes. Also had variety of cakes on lollipop stick served as dessert. Tilapia was very good but crab meat was dry. The dessert was dry and outer shell of cakes were hard. Should have chosen another dessert.

“Awful food and even worse service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Outback is typically a no-brainer. When you want a decent steak, it's a great choice. This experience proved to be the exception to that rule. After a skiing trip, my family and I were on our way home, from Wintergreen. We plugged "Outback" in our GPS and this was the closest one to our route. What a mistake! The service was TERRIBLE. The guy actually argued with my husband about the salad dressing. It was ranch and he said it was supposed to be really spicy. Not so. We've been going to Outback for YEARS and never had peppered-down ranch. Then, the appetizers came and they were cold and had obviously been sitting out somewhere for awhile. My husband's steak was WAY overcooked. He ordered rare. He was served a Medium, at best. All of our steaks were far overseasoned, tasting more like salt-licks than steaks. It was, hands down, THE WORST, Outback we've ever been to. We complained, told the waiter, and he didn't even offer to get a manager or apologize. It was laughable really. AVOID this place.

“Great food, decent service”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This outback is like most other outbacks. It was full during the dinner hour. My server was very nice once she realized I was sitting there. Other than the fact it took her awhile to bring me my water, she was very prompt and courteous the rest of the meal. Half of my order was to-go and it was well packaged and ready shortly after I was ready to leave. The only issue is that they forgot to include silverware- not a problem if I was going home, but we were staying at a hotel- so I had to run back in the restaurant and it took the host about 5 minutes to find it and bring it back. Food was great, cooked well, didn't take too long considering how full the restaurant was- I would eat here again
