We took our 2 yr old grandson to dinner. His food came quickly and kept him busy while we enjoyed our dinners. Waitress was excellent, accommodating our needs efficiently. The prime rib was excellent. Try the wedge salad also. Don't pass up the blooming onion experience.

This Staff was the best for customer service ever, from the hostess with the huge smile, to the waitresses that took care of us. The meal was a bit long to come to the table, but we were kept up to date on the status. They were very busy and we understood. They kept the drinks full, the order was... More

We have visited Outback Steakhouses in Australia and this was just as good. I had surf & turf sirloin & shrimp cooked to perfection and great flavour. My wife had steak salad and she was very happy with hers.Staff excellent friendly and efficient. We highly recommend.

I was in the area and stopped here for lunch.  The cheese fries are a must when visiting Outback, so I ordered the small portion so that I wouldn't be full for the main course.  I ordered the pasta with shrimp and it didn't disappoint.  It was tasty and presentable, though the colors were kinda boring.  It didn't strike me...

This Outback at Kempsriver is a well run chain restaurant. Food is good, service good and attentive. It can get crowded on the weekends but is easy to get in through the week. I like their house salads and blooming onions. The 6 ounce sirloin is my go to meal.

The Outback at Kemps River Crossing is exactly what you would expect at any Outback. We were with a pretty large group of neighbors but were seated right away in spite of the large number of people milling around outside. Service was very good and my NY strip was a perfect slab. The shrimp my wife ordered (which were suppose... More

We tried to make other plans but everything else was closed. Outback is a general standby option although they no longer have the tilapia with crawfish. Hubby and I visited with my dad, his wife and my sister and brother. They all had seafood and we ordered steaks. My ribeye was undercooked so I sent it back. I can do... More

Pros: Friendly waitress, perfect al dente veggies, and tender and perfectly cooked filet mignon steaks. Cons: Plain decor, my 6 oz steak looked pretty thin for $23.00--at lunch hour! I would return because the chef is good.

It was crowded - as usual - so we sat in the bar, which is not always wise. This time it worked out as the waiter - Michael - was quite good. I had the chopped steak with potato for a side. It's reasonable and there is no waste. I asked for it a little pink in the middle, but... More

This location has been there a long time, which is not a bad thing, however the food quality is down and the prices are way up! I mean $8.99 for a blooming onion! But they offer pedals for $4.49. Sorry it's not that I am expecting a cheap meal but you would have to spend $40 per person for the... More
