This Outback offers a decent steak and sweet potato with no frills and no hassles. A go to place when on the road. Happy hour gives you a large mug for only $1 more. Bar was clean and staff friendly. Was not overly busy at 5pm.

Don't suppose one should expect an outstanding dining experience at an Outback Steak House. Certainly, you won't find one at the Aiken, SC restaurant. Service was indifferent at best--the server seemed to feel that the customer should not expect items shown on the menu to be available at this particular location. Beef was overcooked, french fries were limp, the salad... More

I have been eating at Outback for years......in various states, and what I like is it is always reliable. The only thing I would watch out for, is the steaks are a little too salty for my liking, but still really good.

Staff can't seem to get it together. We had a party of 9 and were told to expect a 30 minute wait which ended up being an hour. Seated at 2 tables put together and one was falling apart. The leaf was flimsy and the table was so unsteady you could not even cut the bread on it. We asked... More

We had just arrived after a long drive. All we wanted was to eat a meal and get into our hotel. We had to eat our appetizer without utensils. We had to wait over 30 minutes and then I my filet was overcooked - I ordered medium - it was well done.

The waitress are very friendly. Most are students going to school at USCA. The food is good...steak was cooked to perfection. The blooming onion is delicious. The restaurant is clean but is a little loud especially at lunch. Guess that's to be expected in casual settings that are family friendly.

Had the smaller portion of the Outback Special Sirloin and asked for wood-fire grilled. It was cooked perfectly and just enough for me. Their house salad, which they specially prepared for me without iceberg lettuce, was really good and the house dressing is tops--mustard vinaigrette. Also enjoyed the sweet potato for my other side. One of best parts of meal... More

I have not eaten at an Outback in 2 years and in fact it was this one that I ate at. Was there for business last week, weekend and this week. I was very tired and we were there rather late but our waitperson was great. I had the seared tuna (yes, I know it is a steak place) but... More

We arrived pretty early about 5 PM as I recall. We were promptly seated in a booth in the bar area. Our server arrived and gave us her name and the name of her shadow (trainee). She had the firecracker salmon and mine was the sirloin special. Both cooked to perfection, not a single complaint. Marcy made several "table touches"... More
