Nice restaurant with usually good food and service. It took a while for them to tell us they were out of some of the order. With young children we went there to eat, not dine. We were there almost 2 hours. It turned out to...More

The food was fine and I would return if getting in and out weren't such a challenge. The entire new shopping center at Butler Plaza was designed by body repair shops--very dangerous. Wish they were some place safer.

As said in title, we had asked for Med Rare steak and it came out rare, then they brought it back well done. On top of it the shrimp on the Barbie was cold. Service was friendly but hit & miss.

Wife had me stop for dinner. Surprised me with a gift card for dinner! The food was great and prepared just right. The only thing I would change is if they would bring back the lamb!

If you have to be on Archer Road in Gainesville, then go ahead and enjoy a lunch at Outback. We took another couple to lunch there last Friday and were pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and 2 out of 3 of the hamburgers...More
