Outback is usually my favorite of the chains. But this one is lacking. I was there alone and the server seemed more interested in the larger parties. Food was good, service sucked.

Went late Saturday night. Not a long wait. Good seating outside. Really good food. Had a good time. It is costly ,but expected. Will go again when I get some money saved up again.

This restaurant was very busy on a Friday evening but wait wasn't that long. In our group of 4, one ordered salmon which was very good-- cooked just right. Two ordered steaks and they were cooked to their satisfaction. I had Caesar salad with shrimp which was just ok. Wouldn't order that again. We had a good waiter who was... More

Steak was so so, the size of the bloomin onion has shrunk through the years. Too many other excellent options for steak in Wilmington.

I hadn't been to this Outback for a long time and was 'drawn-in' by their recent advertising. I was in the mood for a steak so met some friends there for dinner ~two nights ago. The place was not too crowded, (not too noisy), and the service was very good. But I was disappointed with my steak, mostly because it... More

First of all I never leave reviews but felt impelled to in this case. Outback in Wilmington used to be good but went back today and was very disappointed. Slowest service, got one chicken strip on my chicken sandwich??? Sent it back and got a slightly bigger chicken strip. Yay!Never even got an apology for horrible service and food. Won't... More

We enjoyed an early dinner at Outback. The restaurant was not crowded and Macy was a very attentive server. The tenderloin medallions were ok but not as good as my husband's ribeye. Onion appetizer, salad, and baked potatoes were best ever!

Food wasn't great! We got there about 1:00. Not very busy, but took forever for the food to come. Everything was either over cooked or greasy.
