We had been salivating over Outback's TV commercial for several weeks. Steak and UNLIMITED shrimp for $15.99. OH YEAH - count us in. Several different type shrimp were available, and the steak was obviously a thick, juicy and perfectly cooked filet. We ordered the "TV COMMERCIAL SPECIAL", and were told there were upgrades for a larger steak at a higher... More

Anybody who has a bad experience at this restaurant isn't trying or cooperating. We ordered a nine oz. Pinot Grigio and a 22 oz. draft Fosters for drinks. We ordered our "Kevin Harvick" Bloomin Onion. My wife ordered a six oz.sirloin medium. She is a transplant patient. She also ordered a crab cake. It was terrible. The steak came to... More

The Alice Springs Chicken here is great, it comes with a delicious honey mustard sauce for dipping, the chicken wings are my favorite , the staff is friendly and attentive, the place is clean and comfortable.

Visiting family in the area and came here with multi-generations, including a great-grandmother, and we enjoyed the experience. If you spend any time at Outbacks, you know what you're getting and we weren't disappointed. Great service, good, tasty food, from ribs to salmon to the Victoria's filet. This wasn't our first trip to this Outback store and it won't be... More

I will say upfront service was good. Food arrived in a timely manner and waitress was friendly. I ordered the Bloomin onion and how can you go wrong there? It was good. But the fish tacos. Oh my they missed that one by a long shot. I took them home for after eating French onion soup and some of the... More

Choose salmon which was dry, no potato included. Seems serving sizes have diminished . Service fair to poor. Will not return. Not good value for the money

Have eaten many times at this Outback Steakhouse over the past years. The food is always consistently very good as are the servers and reception staff. It's a nice break from the daily dinner cooking routine at home! A place to relax, and enjoy great food!

This Outback is our favorite place for onion soup, steaks, coconut shrimp, chicken tortilla soup, Caesar salad, and burgers. The service is outstanding, and we always are greeted warmly. Every effort is made to be sure you're satisfied.
