This Outback has very good food. I usually order steak when I am there and it is always cooked the way I order it. The salads are crisp and fresh. I do have to say I am not crazy about their salad dressings. I am not fond of spicy things and all the dressings I have tried are spiced up.... More

Arrived and promptly seated. Waiter was a little slow at first but got much better. Food was phenomenal. My spouse had New York Strip and it was cooked to perfection. I had the pork chop and it was to die for. Best chop I have ever eaten. A great dining experience.

Not a good night for Outback. The service was definitely bad. I don't know if our server Adrian was new or just not really caring about the job. He wrote down our drink order and then had to ask again what we wanted to drink. When he brought our soup/salad we had to ask for silverware. The place wasn't busy... More

Late afternoon or early dinner time allows for ease of seating. The steak was done perfectly to order and was delicious.

Excellent service, mediocre food. I ordered the petite filet mingnon for $24. The meat was over seasoned and the cut was subpar for a supposed premiere piece of beef.

Had the Outback burger with onion petals, cheese and it was cooked exactly as I asked and was delicious. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. I love the layout of the interior - it is so nicely decorated and you can't beat the easy free parking right outside.

I have never had a bad meal here. I really like Victoria's cut steak. The atmosphere is good as well. If you try and go much after 5 you should call ahead. I usually have their house cabernet wine which is a favorite of mine as far as a house wine.

Service was good, food was good. Nothing spectacular though. Typical chain restaurant. Does not quite have the WOW factor, as some local restaurants.

We have eaten here in the past and have enjoyed our meal, but this time was very disappointing. From very poor service to a steak that should have been sent back, except the waiter was no were to be seen until the others were almost done eating. And then he never asked how the meal was, or if anyone wanted... More
