We had steaks out this chain restraunt. They were cooked as we ordered. The service was so-so nothing real bad nothing extradinary. They were busy and the service was slower than usual. I have been there at lunch before and they were faster..also they did have a senior citizen discount at lunch

I had parmesean crusted chicked with steamed veggies. It was very good. I also had a caesar salad & it was fair. My wife had bourbon salmon &... More

My daughter, grandson, and I went in after a day of shopping, along with attending my grandson's football games. It was an overall very nice relaxing experience. The food was very tasty with just the right amount of seasoning and cocktails were perfect. To add to the fantastic experience was the excellent service!! Keep up the good works!!!

Ordered the Cobb salad with crispy chicken. The chicken was a little too crispy for my taste and pieces too small. The wife order angus steak tacos which were good. The bread was hot and tasty. Overall good experience.

After a full day of shopping we definitely needed a wind down with some decent food to fill up on that was not food court food. Great location and I was impressed that they were able to fit our family of ten in such a timely manner. Service was great, family was happy and needless to say the blooming onion... More

I took the family to Outback on Sunday at 6:30. We waited 35 minutes for a table. I had no idea it would be that busy on a Sunday evening. We ordered a "Loaded Bloomin Onion as an appetizer. It is their normal onion with Cheese Fries on top. It was delicious. Extremely unhealthy, but a guilty pleasure. Dinner was... More

We came in for lunch after shopping at the Outlet Malls. I ordered the 6oz sirloin with a side of sautéed mushrooms and steamed broccoli. I was enjoying the steak & mushrooms very much but when I bit into the broccoli, I was shocked that it was extremely grainy. When I squeezed it, the liquid from it was brown. It... More

I am not giving it 4 or 5. Food is good, not awesome. Staff is cool but they need to do something with the kitchen. My family and I always have our food mixed and changed. So that's why we are not going anymore.
