Usually love Outback so stopped for lunch. Three tables occupied with one server. Nice but totally unorganized. After asking for water waited ten minutes, then decided to check out a table with 6 people asking for separate checks and boxes before taking our order to get it to the kitchen. Table was in no hurry. Check wrong and couldn't fix... More

Went for dinner the other night and we were very disappointed. For a steakhouse they should know how to cook beef but the prime rib was seasoned with way too much salt and 1 piece undercooked and 1 piece overcooked. The caesar salad was fresh but certainly needed more cheese and dressing while the 5 pieces of asparagus were very... More

Sent my steak back twice and they still did not get it right. Brought it home and cooked it myself. Air conditioning was on and we were freezing. Charged us a dollar more because it was a different state after advertising a special price!!!

The coconut shrimp was not good... shrimp was tender but the coconut crust was was tasteless and greasy. Had to ask... More

Two couples went for dinner, arriving just before 5:00 to avoid the Saturday night rush and found the restaurant to be half full - a good sign that our meals would come out the way we would order them. Our server, a young man, was attentive and brought us water and beverages quickly. However, this dinner with friends went downhill... More

Delicious steak is always pleasing to have. Good service is always a plus. With great seating and good food you can never go wrong. It's always a pleasure to go. It's great for reservations and time with family. Plus it's not a loud restaurant which is another plus for me.

We visit Outback Steakhouse locations in several states. Generally the food is what we've come to expect and we can depend on getting a good meal at okay prices. Tonight Outback was busy, but the estimated wait of 20 minutes was correct and we were offered small tastes of Awesome Blossom by a pleasant server as we waited. Tad, the... More

The reason we went to Outback was because of the special Wednesday menu. However, when we were seated the special menu was not given to us. We proceeded to ask for the menu and when I asked why we didn't receive the menu when we sat down we were told that they forgot to give it to us. So I... More

Our Senior Lunch Bunch ate here this past week and had an excellent experience! The food was great with a good variety to please everyone. The desserts are definitely worth looking at. What really impressed us was the service we received, from the gentleman greeting us at the door to the very efficient waitress who kept everyone happy. Any time... More

After a full day of work, a group of business associates and I decided to take dinner at the Outback. Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a very pleasant hostess who quickly sat us. Our waitress was delightful with a positive attitude and made several suggestions as to what we might like to try. She had a good... More
