This could be a lengthy, but I will make it short. Food is always excellent. Can not beat Alice Spring Chicken I would encourage you to use the call ahead if possible. Bar seating is 1st come, 1st serve. If ordering a margarita, be sure...More

If you make a to go order, you better check to make sure your orders right. This is the third time I've gotten home to see they've left out several side orders. Very disappointing.

Service is always good. Location is convenient just off I-210. Love the bread and butter. Always order the Alice Springs Chicken. Typical Outback prices at the LC location. Bathrooms seem to be a little dirty lately. Hope that is improved. Otherwise, all good at Outback.

Our waiter, Keelan, very attentive. Food orders served correctly. Victoria's filet mignon cannot be beat! No complaints about their salads either.

Great service - our waiter really worked hard to ensure we were satisfied with our order. The Chicken Aussie Tacos were delicious. If you've never had the baked potato soup - this is a must! And, of course, the chilled salads. No complaints from this...More

We chose Outback because it was close to our hotel and we knew the food would be good. We got there at 8:05 pm and was seated immediately. At a dirty table. And waited. And waited. And waited. Finally we flagged down someone and asked...More
