We have always had good food and service at this restaurant. Tonight was no exception. The service and food was very good. The steaks were cooked to our order of rare and med rare. Great night out

Steak was dry and tough, waitress wasn't sure about the drink I ordered she had to ask what was in it even after I pointed to the drink in the menu. She seemed as if she was really forcing herself to be nice and cheerful.

It had been awhile since I've been in an outback restaurant(the one in my hometown has abruptly closed) so I thought I would 'treat" myself to a good steak. what I got was frustration, anger and a still empty stomach. I went into this location on a quiet Sunday afternoon and since I was alone(only reason I can think of)... More

We were looking forward to a nice dinner out. The server was very attentive. We ordered drinks and cheese fondue. The fondue was thin and very salty. I ordered the crab cakes, potato soup and salad. The soup was good but again salty. The crab cakes were almost burned and the salad had a lot of brown lettuce. My husband... More

I'm surprised with the numerous bad reviews. I have eaten dinner at this restaurant four or five times during the past six months. Never had a bad meal. The bone in 22 ounce ribeye is excellent. I thought it was good value. Sweet potato cooked to perfection. I usually sit in the bar and watch TV or get a little... More

The service at Outback made all the difference to our family. The restaurant is exactly what you would expect from this restaurant chain. Excellent steaks, and the awesome bloomin onion. However, there were a few mistakes with our order - but our server Patty (I believe her name was) quickly took care of it and had it all corrected in... More

We came in at 11:02AM on Saturday. Just a few customers so not busy. It took almost an hour to get our food. Kids were hungry and getting quite upset it was taking so long.

Staying at a local hotel, the LaQuinta Inn Woodway, close by is the Outback Steakhouse. We called in our order, and drove to pick it up because we had our dogs with us, and didn't want to eat inside of a restaurant and leave the dogs in the car. They brought it out to our car, which is nice. The... More

My wife and I hadn't been to Outback in quite some time so we decided to give it a try. We we greeted by a friendly hostess who seated us right away in a booth. We started with the snack sized blooming onion for $4. It was a great size for the two of us. She ordered the grain fed... More

My husband and I decided to go to Outback Steakhouse after seeing a movie last week. The place was pretty empty but the weather was pretty nasty. The management was walking around asking how patron's meals were. It seemed that the service had improved since my last visit; which it had. However, the food was sub par. My husband couldn't...
