Was nicely welcomed Saturday evening, they cleaned the table we preferred. We had beer and mixed grill. Serving was quick and efficient. Atmosphere good. Food tasted good, except for the piece of ribs that was a bit dried out. We wanted a quick bite and got it. Outback delivered ok.

We have dined and enjoyed Outback in several locations, so we appreciate the basic Aussie concept. Tonight, however, we had some disappointment. Wife ordered steak & lobster. The lobster was minuscule, much smaller than the picture on the menu. I had a rib eye steak, rare. It was tougher than usual. Service was fine. Megan (possibly Irish) was a delightful... More

Outback is usually OK but this time had a lot to be desired! Outback has now introduced electronic iPad style drink menus. Although this may seem to be a good idea in some venues, it is NOT here! When we go out to eat, I have a small expectation to be served by a waiter, ask him questions, have him... More

The westernized Australian themed steak house boasts delicious chops and high quality steaks, always prequeled with a warm fresh baked grained bread loaf; Myriad starch selections included wild rice, mashers, or, for the purist, a fully loaded baker; Desert selections meet and exceed confectionery expectations. Next time, the lamb chops beckon.

I've seen these restaurants before whilst travelling in the States but have never visited. We had dinner here on the Sunday night and it was busy. I had my usual choice of a sirloin steak, baked/jacket potato and salad. My wife had a chicken dish in sauce with mushrooms and veg. She says it was excellent and as she ate... More

Had their signature blooming onion, and it did not dissapoint! Delicious! The steak was cooked to perfection and the baked sweet potato melted in my mouth. The waiter was great!

What a sad excuse for a mid-scale steakhouse. We met some friends here - they picked the location - to catch up after not seeing them for several years. The servers were friendly and tried to accommodate us. Because of the kitchen and bar, they could not. The wine list seems cheap. There's a reason for that. The wines on... More

This is a good place to get a great steak and they have something called a Blooming Onion which is a meal in itself. It is best shared with others! The noise level is a bit high for those with hearing issues but it is otherwise a very nice place to eat.
