Our first time here, we belong to Dine Rewards & Outback is one of the restaurants in the program. Our food was OK but the service was not the greatest! Lots of workers but they stand around and talk or do nothing. Dirty tables and they walk past them! Just not a good experience. We understand they will be moving... More

Traveling from North Carolina to Minnesota, we called it a night at the Best Western Motel right off US-30, slightly east of I-65. At that point, US-30 is "Restaurant Row." We drove a few blocks west on US-30 and saw this Outback. Relying on our experiences with the Outback in Hermantown MN, we stopped here for supper. This Outback looks... More

We stopped here while we were in town for a concert. We have not been to outback in years as the one in our town closed long ago. Our waiter was very friendly and got us our beers and other drinks relatively quickly. I ordered a 12 oz ribeye which was priced about $25.00. Our food came out and we... More

I love steak, it is my favorite food. I would have had a better meal and better service at McDonalds. I understand people make mistakes, although you think a steakhouse would know the difference between medium rare and well done. Of the four meals in our party, two were so messed up we sent them back. We are not usually... More

Since there is no Outback Steakhouse anywhere near our home, we will try to visit one, when we are out of our area. It was a busy Friday evening, and the crowd attested to the popularity of the restaurant. Still, our wait was only about 20 minutes. The food was great, (there were some new things on the menu), and... More
