For a chain I really like this place. You know what ever you order is going to be good and consistent. I always get the filet which is always cooked to my perfection! We ordered a bloomin onion which is always really good as well. You can't go wrong here.

We were having a send off after a weekend wedding. Even though this was a chain restaurant the food was good and the server was excellent serving the 6 of us. One surprise was an Australian theme with no draft Fosters?? Something to do with the keg system. We had the usual fare steaks, fish and blooming onion. All in... More

I hate to do this. I really really like outback steakhouses...but the quality here is below average. Tonight I ordered the NY strip with broccoli and mashed potatoes. This is not worth the price. The whole presentation was not desirable. The steak was so so. The broccoli was wilted and just looked sad. The mashed potatoes just didn't look fresh.... More

I had a delightful meal. The pork porterhouse was tasty and mash potatoes complimented each other wonderfully

My 3 sisters and I visited this restaurant believing we would have tender steaks and good service. The steaks were so cooked to a crust and so tough We had to cut and tear our steaks into small pieces to eat them. I did tell the server, Gregory, and he offers to get us another steak after we were nearly... More

The lamb chops and broccoli were cooked to perfection! The service was great and the family was very pleased. The location was not in a heavily trafficked area.

If you like the steady eddy concept of an Outback this is it. They are a classic for the chain. We were seated promptly and our waitress arrived quickly in spite of the place being busy. The service was good and the staff was friendly and attentive. The salads were delivered and the staff waited for us to finish before... More

No longer have Outback's in Canada, so when in the States, we try to hit one up as they are normally a very consistent and tasty option. All of us had steaks - all cooked exactly like we wanted. Baked potatoes were excellent (loaded of course). And like always, the staff was very friendly. Tried a new desert - a... More

We had a tasty meal with good service at this long-time Outback location. We had not eaten here for five years after a graduation dinner turned into a disaster due to poor service and fatty, unappetizing meat. We decided enough time had passed to give them another try. The server was friendly and accommodating. When you are placing your order... More

there is a special offering with a coupon you can receive an upgrade of the size of your meat and at the end you will be so satisfied and happy with the size and taste of the food served, the customer service is good and the place is attractive.
