We visited for lunch. Everyone else at the table made way better choices than me. Stay away from the fettuccine. That being said, their steaks and Blooming Onions are amazing.

I wish that outback restaurants would go back to their beginning roots menu. The food was average chain restaurant food. Nothing over the top. It seems over the past few years they keep changing the menu even down to the caesar dressing (which was awesome before the change). The servers were good and very friendly.

We had a late lunch on Saturday and the service was excellent. The manager even came by our table to check on us. The appetizer (Bloomin Onion) was delicious but the steaks were cooked to order and excellent to taste. A wonderful dining experience.

Visited this restaurant late evening, got home late and did not feel like cooking. Called ahead for curb side. I was on hold awhile and disconnected twice, but when I finally got someone they were apologetic for the wait. Was told my order would be ready in 20 Minutes... I arrived in 15. A wonderful employee named Bonnie immediately came... More

So we showed up, told them we called ahead, it's not in the computer. After a few seconds they find a post it note under the screen with our... More

We love the food at Outback We frequently use our credit card points to get gift cards here. However we have had problems at this location a few times. This particular visit was the worst. The waiter was new, so I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt but he was just really terrible. Not attentive, you had... More
