We had a very nice dinner here while staying at the Holiday Inn Express that is next door. We have come to expect good quality and value from Outback Steakhouses and this one did not disappoint.

Had a late meal, around 8:45 PM. They close at 9:30. Service was OK, but was a bit more interested in doing all the tidying up that would allow a quick exit. The food, though was well prepared, hot and tasted right. I'd esat there again.

Great restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Conveniently located in a nice area just off Interstate 99. Friendly staff, very good service.

This is a typical Outback. Drinks were very good. My food order was good. However, the best thing was when my friend mentioned to the waiter that the meal was not what was expected, he took it upon himself to tell the manager and she made it right. That kind of service doesn't happen very often.

Erin and Paul were very attentive despite the number of people waiting for tables - one would expect a lot more stress but they treated everyone like they were special. Thank you.

My wife and I generally do not eat at national chains, but made a exception because of its location to where we were staying. Everything was excellent from the bartender, waitress, drink, and food.

We have been to this restaurant twice in the past year. Without reservations, we were seated rather promptly. On this most recent visit, I did notice that the party ahead of us had to wait a minute or two when the host saw that the table they wanted in the bar area still needed to be cleaned. But, the delay... More

My wife and son had the chicken and coconut shrimp special. They both enjoyed their meal. However, I had their new steak fajita. Lots of cheese but very little steak. Disappointed that it didn't match the picture or description in the menu. Very pricey for melted cheese.

We stopped at Outback on the way to the hotel after a long day of driving. My steak was an extra large one done just the way I like it; the chopped salad is always great. My wife's pasta dish was tasty and just the size meal that she had in mind. The server was very attentive. There was only... More

The Outback has excellent carrot cake and their Blackberry Sangria is the best i ever tasted. I highly recommend both!
