This is a great Outback! The service was phenomenal and the food was a good as could be. We have always been fans of Outback but have recently had some bad experiences in other locations. What a pleasure to go to an Outback that proved...More

Our hotel was very close so we walked over to the restaurant. Wish we hadn't! Ordered the onion as a starter that was to be served with "our spicy signature sauce". My wife's intolerance for spice meant that she would not dip. But the onion...More

After an initial disappointment of no lamb chops the server and manager went out of their way to see to we were satisfied with our meal and we were. My Prime Rib was perfect and my husband loved his surf and turf

The service was excellent. The staff was friendly and outgoing. The prime rib was a little too fatty for my liking( and I know that comes with prime rib). The chicken was over done.

Late afternoon Friday arrival. Not busy at all. Our server was FANTASTIC (Kaylee S). Very prompt, friendly, courteous and attentive but not overbearing. The bartender (Jason) made the best peach tea we ever had at an Outback. Food arrived in good time and was well...More
