I was here recently with three co-workers for dinner. The restaurant was clean and large and the waitress was super friendly, attentive, and made us feel at home. Too bad the food wasn't as good as she was. I ordered the 6-ounce filet with a sweet potato and house salad. The salad was good but just an ordinary salad. The... More

I had a very enjoyable dinner with my husband and 7 year old granddaughter! Children's menu was great and my medium rare burger was very good. A Birthday dessert for my granddaughter was awesome. Very special

Second steakhouse outing for us in 24 hours (a rarity, but we were in the area after car shopping ... and VERY hungry!) ... the previous night we frequented Texas Roadhouse ... and to be honest, preferred everything about that meal over this one. That being said, staff at the Outback are super friendly, fun and helpful (and, as other... More

Met up with an old friend. Got a quiet corner. Attentive wait staff. Excellent Clam Chowder ... lunch time was not too crowded for a Friday. Would go back.

Staff is very congenial, the bar is fun, the food is very consistant and tasty. Plenty of parking and easy access. The crowd is diverse and plenty of good conversation.

It's the Outback. The have good steaks, decent beers, and reasonable prices. Nothing you don't expect, but nothing that sets them apart.

Have been to Outback several times in the last year and it is not my favorite. The place is nice and the waitresses are great but the food is not that good. The steak is not a great cut and not worth the money. My favorite thing to order is the pork chop which is worth it.

Service wasn't the best we've ever had, but the food is predictably good most of the time. My small steak was dry and overcooked (medium should indeed have some pink in it). I ate it because I was hungry. The sides were excellent (loaded sweet potato, veggies). Had a bit of my husband's porterhouse, which was yummy! We didn't get... More

We an a very enjoyable family dinner. They have a nice menu- appetizers, salads, sides, chicken, fish, beef, drinks and desserts. In addition they also have a kids menu and highchairs. I ordered the simply seasoned grilled salmon with a sweet potato - very fresh and tasty. My husband had the combo ribs and chicken- with a side of Mac... More
