The Outback has been very popular since it opened a number of years ago. I have had a good steak at the outback chain before. However, I ordered the grilled chicken. It was seasoned too much, and there was chicken that had not been cut to clear the cartilage out of it. It seems like this happened a number of... More

Outback is one of my favorite places to eat. We went at 3pm and still had to wait even though we could see empty tables. The food was great as always though.

We love eating at Outback! We got a blooming onion, and it was huge! Then all 3 of us got steak and lobster because it was a special. It was really good. It was on a Friday night, but the wait was only about 30 minutes.

Madison's Outback (which is actually a Huntsville business) sets the bar for a family steakhouse in this eclectic bedroom community. It's the perfect blend of premiere food, family-friendly environment, regular patronage round a well-stocked bar, superb customer service, excellent take-out, and strong commitment to the community. Whether it's a date night out, an after-church outing, or a bite after the... More

An associate and I had lunch yesterday and sat together in a booth in the bar area. We were greeted quickly and seated right away. Our orders were taken quickly and the food delivered promptly. The food was excellent and we were courteously checked on by several employees throughout our meal and post meal meeting. I recommend this place.

Yes. Outback is a chain. However Chris, the proprietor, of this location is leading a group of motivated team "mates". My family visits here frequently and we love this location. Sure, there are times when things just aren't right. But I simply tell them what isn't good on that visit and they do everything possible to make me happy. Good... More

Great food as usual, got my endless soup and salad as usual and my wife got the sirloin with shrimp skewer. I only wish there was an outback in Athens close to I 65.

Love the sweet potato and mixed vegetables and blooming onion. A little pricey but worth it. Service is great and the best bread and butter.

We have visited Outback quite a few times since they opened at this location, and they never fail us. My wife and I both had steaks that were cooked a perfect medium rare, and the appetizer sampler was great as well. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We average going to Outback about once per year and each time we say we are not going back for awhile. Outback is supposed to have great steaks but each of ours were very dry and unfavorable, the same as the previous visit. The steaks are simply not worth what they cost. We have just now returned from Connor's Steak... More
