My wife and I visited on 18 May 2017. We went in for lunch and were surprised the place was less than 25% full. We were seated directly and the waiter took our order. My wife had a burger while I had the soup and Caesar salad. The waiter brought our tea. My wife had sweet tea while mine was... More

Our server named Taylor actually threw the coaster on the table to our 9 year old. All of our dishes were way too spicy, including our daughter's kids meal. It's extremely uncomfortable to have your mouth on fire and not have drink refills in a timely manner because of your server. We were so disappointed with the service, too much... More

Good as Outbacks good. Friendly service that gets to know it's regulars. Updated decor and easy to find.

Outback is one of our favorites, however if I'm being honest this time was not one of the bests. Most of the food was over seasoned and both steaks came out overcooked. The break was good as always and the salads were fresh and crispy but that is about all I can say that was good. If it hadn't been... More

We used to love going to Outback but this is the second time in a row we have gone and found the steaks to be tough and not so tasty. We will probably not return.

Not in any hurry to go back though I appreciate the waitress and manager both offering to re-do my steak (overdone and extremely salty.) Nice variety of menu selections, comparable pricing, atmosphere on the noisy side. Salad and sides good, hubby liked his burger. It was okay, but too many other restaurants to eat at to return for just okay.

You are looking forward to a great steak dinner & here is what happens: #1. Wedge salad served on very hot plate #2. Steak overdone & served on cold plate. #3. Our server, Jake, never came back to check on us. The next time our server returned was to deliver the check. Outback should be better that this.

This is my first time in their new location and have to say I love the improved seating arrangements. I had the Chicken on the Barbie, asked for it to be grilled and not wood-fired as I don't like that taste. No problem, it was grilled! However, they have now cut down on the portion sizes, but not the price.... More

First, we did call ahead to limit our wait time and asked for interior seating. Upon arrival, we were told five minutes. After 20 minutes, we checked again and were told we could be seated outside. We explained we had elderly guests with us, and outdoor seating would be uncomfortable for them. We waited some more, probably another 15 minutes... More

Went for lunch today and the food was just plain ok, nothing out of the extarordinary, but what really got me upset was how slipppery and greasy the floors were in this restaurant. I mentioned the dirty, greasy floors to our waiter who to my surprise told me they hear this complaint all the time. We won't be back!
