We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night. Called ahead and had a Time for 7:00 pm for 5 people. As we walked into the first set of doors a person was there to check you in, which we did. Evidently this information does not get relayed to the host inside because we sat at the bar for awhile. At... More

It had been awhile since I had DINNER at an Outback. In fact, I think most Outback's are not open for lunch. This one is tho and it isn't busy! The service is fast and attentive, and the parking lot is easy in/easy out. With a great lunch steak meal, side, drink bread and tip, I was dinged for about... More

In my sixty eight years I have never had such a poor Cobb salad. Ice burg lettuce was wilted. No blue cheese. Tossed most of it away!

I got the deal with a steak and lobster tail for $15. This was a great deal, and with that and my side of mashed potatoes, it was filling too! Our service was fairly fast and the food was delicious!

I visited the restaurant with my husband, brother and his girlfriend. Our steaks were extra tough and loaded with salt. Also, our utensils were dirty.....disgusting.

Perfect for two people to share. I had the strip steak, wife had prime rib. Both of us enjoyed our meals. When we left an hour later, huge... More
