Every restaurant we attempted to dine at had a 70+ minute wait this Valentine’s Day. We were looking to celebrate our daughter’s 16th birthday and she wanted steak. Arrived around 5:30pm and only had a 5-10 minute wait. Friendly service, great food, and our kiddos...More

I will endorse Outback Steakhouse in Appleton, WI for one thing: consistency. They are consistently bad at their service. I had boycotted this restaurant for the past 5 years due to back-to-back poor experiences. Half a decade later, things have not changed. Don’t bother expecting...More

Standard fare for an Outback. The food is good although my steak was a little tough. The service is always good. You know what to expect here no matter where in the country you are.
