I'd never eaten at an Outback before, but it was close to my hotel and still open at 9:00pm. Mediocre. I had a rib-eye steak that was supposed to be medium rare and wood-grilled. It came rare and cooked some other way so it was soggy. It was very thin, so it didn't have time to crisp the outside and... More

2 steaks prepared perfectly 1 way too rare, The general manager Nathan came to our table and personally took the steak back to cook a bit longer, he was not pleased with the end result and had a new steak and side for my daughter. He handled the issue very well and we will be back. Also our server Brianna... More

If you go to Outback you try to avoid main dinner times, however, sometimes we don't control the dinner time. It was a Friday evening 6:30 PM, the restaurant was busy, the server was amazing and let me tell you Lambchops are delicious! Order them medium

This was a party of 8 to meet for a visit. The service was great and helpful even when we were talking and a little slow with answers. We had steaks, salmon, and lobster. Everyone said it was all good. It was easy to access for travelers

Mostly I was looking for something close to my hotel and reasonably price, quick, and predictable so I could get back to the room to prep. All bases covered, and the benefit was the salad was EXCELLENT!! The great combo of salty sweet pecans, pungent cheese, juicy charbroiled steak on a generous bed of crispy lettuce mix and fresh vegies.... More

I really think we just hit this at wrong time. But everything seemed off on this, likely our only, visit. Wait staff was very good. Just must have been slow or between shift funk for everything else. Very few diners, as well. But, food tasted fine after a moderate drive for the day.

Used to be my favorite place to eat. The staff used to be very personable & the Outback Special was my go-to order. They no longer put as much seasoning on it & the quality of the steak is "iffy" at best anymore. Never know if it's going to be a good steak or one shot through with fat and/or... More
