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

This was an average Outback. The food was good as was the service. Waiter filled tea often. Service was fast as was delivery of food. The steak was amazing. Good cheesecake.

This is a great location for out of town business travelers. Order onlne which gives you a sub total. The location on the same street as the hotel with little traffic. Within a minute of pulling up, she was out with the food first. Then she even got me more A1 sauce on the spot and overall only took a... More
