For an Outback franchise, the experience is fairly typical. The food quality is slightly below your standard Outback. Service is hit and miss.

Stopped in for lunch. I ordered a Grilled Chicken on the Barbie and a side of vegetables off the 600 calorie menu. The chicken was juicy and the barbeque was a tad bit spicy but still a perfect pairing with the grilled chicken. I was not a fan of the vegetables as they were large slices. Our server was very...

What a dive....rundown interior, dirty bathroom, slow, slow slow service and inferior quality. Outback has definitely joined the ranks of Applebee's and Ruby Tuesday for gross, inferior quality food at high prices. One of our dishes came out wrong (kitchen error, not server error) food was barely lukewarm after a 25 minute wait in a nearly empty restaurant. Side salad... More

We hadn't been here for a while because of bad reviews but thought we would try it again and glad we did. My husband and I both had ribeye steak with baked potatoes and house salad, the salad never fails, delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked to medium and the service was perfect. The potato was delicious and red hot... More

Saturday night on the road and staying nearby. Line out the door moved quickly. Service in the bar was great. Prime Rib fantastic. Filet had spicy seasoning but we should have asked for no seasoning, Really enjoyed our meal. Wedge salad was top notch. Would go back.

The last two times my family has been to this Outback, we have sent steak back to be recooked. The previous visit took so long to get the steak back that everyone was finished eating except the one waiting on food. It was burnt so bad it could not be eaten. The visit this weekend was the about the same.... More

Ordered steak well done, what I got was cooked medium rare. My steak was over-spiced and I was not able to eat it. All the food had too much spices on it, even the French fries. Very disappointing. Staff is friendly but no satisfaction from the management on the food or the bill. Other Outback restaurants are NOT like this... More

We went looking for a nice meal. We arrived about 6:30 on Friday and were seated immediately. The waiter arrived very quickly and took our drink and appetizer order. The young man returned with our tea in moments and patiently took our meal order. He brought the hot bloomin' onion quickly and before we could finish it, he came with... More
