Visited Super Bowl Sunday. Prices 50% higher than last year. Onion petals were fresh and hot. The loaf of bread was not fresh and lukewarm. Rack of ribs were tasty, but lukewarm. Mashed potatoes were lukewarm. Salads were plain and not entirely fresh.

We stopped in to this Outback for dinner one October day. We were seated quickly by the courteous server. Our meals of chicken, fish, and pasta were very good and we ate them up. We enjoyed our time at the outback.
