We were in the Blowing Rock area for 3 days, and our meal at Outback was the best we had. We both had prime rib, potatoes, salad, bread, etc. All were tasty. Our server, Tyler, was so friendly and polite. We truly enjoyed the meal.

If you are in Blowing Rock during the peak leaf color change season; this is a good place to eat to get away from the crowds on the main Blowing Rock tourist street. This is just like the Outback in your hometown.
