They have the BEST Ribeye ever, it is seasoned perfect everytime. We go there at least once a week. In fact we are known by our first names. The staff is awesome, they know the menu by heart, and always suggest some of the selections .

Our go-to restaurant for a guaranteed good meal and service. Always can count on Outback to provide a fresh meal, prepared to your liking. Will accommodate special diets, too! Relaxed homey atmosphere and friendly servers!

I was meeting my best friend for dinner because she was having a bad day. I ended up running 30 minutes late and thought she would be furious. Surprisingly when I got there she stated that her waitress CELINA kept her company and according to her turn her whole day around! And the food that we ate came out great... More

This is the 4th Outback I have eaten at in various states over the last 2 years and was again greatly disappointed. Service was sloooooowwwww and the waitress (while very friendly) messed up 3 items in our order starting with the drinks and appetizers. In addition Outback has hiked their prices WAY up (>$5 increase on entrees). Steak was cooked... More

I gave them five stars because they are usually very good. Every once in a while we get a clunker of a steak, too much gristle. We love that there are smaller appetizer options, like Bloomin' Petals instead of a whole Bloomin' Onion. It's a bit difficult to put together a low protein meal here, but if you like meat,... More

Arrived around 7:30 on a Thursday evening, no one was waiting and tables were available. Hostess still gave us pager and said it would be five minutes. Another couple arrived and were told seven minutes. Finally, a group of three arrived and were told fifteen minutes. None were call ahead. We were seated last. The hostess, with quite the attitude,... More

Outback is my favorite place to eat! I love their bread, and bloomin onions, even love their salads. I'm down for outback any day of the week, unless it is the Outback in Springfield. I'll go by my most recent experiences here.... To start off the place is always a mess. The last time my boyfriend and I went here,... More

Food was simply awful. Bread was microwaved and tasteless, Salad - that was eye opener : it was a quarter or rotten cabbage moistened with a disgustingly sweet sauce. I assume we were supposed to peal, clean and shred it ourselves ?! Steak - I cant imagine how they manage to do it this way, or it was just simply... More

As a chain, this location is convenient to the area and is average in the food prep. The stuffed lobster dinner with chili lime sauce was decent but there was little lobster and more bread stuffing with some crab mixed in. The roasted sirloin in Marsala though was outstandingly tender and tasty. The desert a mason shortcake was unfortunately forgettable.... More

I'd really give this place 3.5 stars if that were an option because it is better than most chain restaurants. However, it's not a 4-star experience. The steak quesadilla was tasty, but was lacking in the steak department. The beer selection is okay, but not at the level of craft beers most steak places have these days. Of course, the... More
