We stopped by for lunch and were surprised by new options for lunch. They now have a Philly steak sandwich that is filled with ribeye and is tender and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and competent and the facility was very clean.

It was as if everything I said he said yes then did or ordered as he pleased. Hubby had steak, cooked... More

Our waitress Ashley was awesome. The food was fantastic. Even the server that brought our items to the table was very friendly and had a great attitude. My only complaint and in this case it's not a big one. The hostess didn't seem to want to be there. She seemed totally disinterested. The rest of the staff was awesome!

At the end of our 2-day, 500+ mile drive home from vacation, and with nothing in the fridge, we opted for a little pampering and went to Outback in Newington. Glad we did! The short wait (Saturday 7 p.m.) for a table was made easier with comfortable seating, a cooler of lemony ice water, and a beeper so we could... More

Outback is the only place I go for steak. It is consistently good and the price is very reasonable when you consider all that comes with it. Service is almost always good, but on this visit (8/19) we had a delightful waitress. Fun, while doing her job well. Look forward to going back.

If you want below average food then outback is for you. Better off grabbing some steaks at the grocery and chilling and grilling at home at least the meat will be good.

This restaurant is in an odd spot so I didn't see it the first three times I drove by. It's set up on a hill off an access road. Originally I went for lunch but they don't serve lunch so I returned for dinner. The menu is on the pricey side. My waiter was not very personable. My dinner was... More

Can't beat the quality and prices. Had a New York strip that was fantastic and reasonably priced. The fries were cold and limp but when I mentioned it they brought me a fresh order. Their seafood is great as well. Service is always top notch. Consistently good.
