The service was great, but the food was just OK. Not bad, but not special. I had a Ribeye steak and some broccoli. The steak was under-cooked and the broccoli was just about raw. My husband had salmon and thought it was underdone. Our bill with soft drinks only was $44.57.

Our family of 4 went to Outback for my birthday dinner. We had a blooming onion - seemed a little greasier than I prefer. I had the pasta with shrimp and chicken - very tasty. The others enjoyed their dinners also. Good service.

Started out pretty good even though our waiter never read us specials like the other waiters. Bleu cheese wedge salad was amazing. The poterhouse was covered in spices , way too much. The prime rib was disappointing , over cooked , old, end piece , covered in black spices. If you want to taste the meat your eating I don't... More

Other friend had ceasar salad. She brought home a large piece of carrot cake. I had the salted caramel cookie. It was so yummy!! Went... More

We love to come to this Outback because of the value. You can get a good steak dinner with salad for under $15. Also, some cocktails are only $5. The service is also very good considering we always go when it is busy. The wait to get a table can be up to an hour on a busy evening so... More

My fiancee and I were NOT served at the Black Adler (please see that review), so we looked for "old reliable". We were seated almost immediately. Service was wonderful. My steak is always good. The fiancee got the salmon and said it was her best meal in Buffalo in the six weeks we spent there. Do not support the Black... More

Went on a Friday evening and we ordered a chicken salad, soup and cheese fries with no bacon. Simple order. Soup came out with film over it and was not hot. Meaning it was sitting for a while before it was brought to the table. How can you get soup wrong. When these two items came out the server dropped... More

We always dine at the Outback in Amherst when we visit this area. Waitresses are very friendly and are always attentive to our requests. We always eat the steak and the Porter Pork chop, the are juicy and tasty. During our last visit, the pork was a little under done close to the bone and the Manager came to apologize... More
