I ordered at the bar, and I carried it back to my hotel room. Food was quite tasty, and the service was fast. The location is close to lots of shops and hotels etc...overall I would go back on another visit to New London.

Servers were present all around us, waiting on previous customers. 10 mins later - nadda. 5 Mins later, a family of four was seated next to us, given menus. Still no one at our table. Another 5...

Was here for lunch. We were seated right away, and the waitress came over to us quickly as well. We had the burger, a steak salad and the blooming onion, all cooked just right. Will return when visiting the area! Location is great and easy off the highway.

We haven't been here for a couple of years and thought we'd give it a try. We enjoy eating at the bar wherever we go so this visit was the same. We both orders prime rib, one med.rare, the other med. Both cooked as ordered. From here we went downhill. Meat was flavorless. The side of sauté mushrooms tasted as... More

The last couple of times that I have eaten at Outback Steakhouse I have not been impressed. Place was not busy, 3 tables of people including my table. Had to wait 25 minutes for waitress to take our drink order. My steak was dry, not much on taste. Once we got our food the waitress seemed more attentive. Probably won't... More

We tried takeout for the first time from Outback. What a great dinner we had. I ordered online, 2 days before pick up, yes you can do that. Ordering on line was very easy the site walks you thru each item and each selection down to salad dressing and extra BBQ sauce. They even offer you free bread and butter,... More
