I do like Outback, cheese fries are excellent, but this particular location gives you a smaller portion than every other Outback I've dined in. Commack is excellent BTW but Friday evening we were in Setauket and it will be the last time. Salmon, way over cooked, whoever was cooking should be fired, nobody, absolutely nobody that's ever eaten Salmon could... More

I always liked Outback but the quality of service had really declined. Called ahead and when we got there said there was 25 minute wait. No problem, it's Saturday. Ran out of buzzers. Ok. But then we found our own table in the bar area, waited 10 minutes to get it cleaned and once we sat waited to get a... More

The only thing that stops me from dining there more is their seasoning. They put the same mixture on everything except the cheese fries (ask for them layered) and the water. I love pepper but there's something else that they use that just gets tiring. They even put it in the soup, guess that's their calling card. They really do... More

Wanted to go someplace special for Valentine’s day dinner so we decided to try Outback in Setauket. I called ahead and Vinny took my name and said they would do their very best to get us seated as soon as they could. The wait turned out to be only about ten minutes and we were seated. A young man named... More

Generally a good place for lunch. Many of the same options as dinner. Special lunch menu under $10. or regular choices for a bit more.

The server was slow.... to bring bread took 45 minutes!, drinks 15 minutes, second order of mac & cheese 20 minutes, the meal over an hour, and the meal was cold and the breaded shrimp was over-done dark brown and crunchy/chewy... terrible! I dare not ask 'Brianna' (server #112) to fix things... we didn't have another hour or 2 to... More

Husband and I visited last night for dinner. We asked the hostess if they had happy hour. She said at the bar and we could ask the bartender what time it ends. So we went there. Bartender said they don't have a happy hour. Hostess should have known that information. Wonderful bartender named Mel who was very attentive and quickly... More

Food was slow coming but it was worth the wait. Everything was delicious starting with their Bloomin Onion. We had potato soup which was very good. My husband had steak which was so tender and delicious. I had crab cakes which were very good. We were too full to get dessert but everything on the menu looked good.

Was looking for a local seafood restaurant that I could go to that would be representative of the area but did not get settled until after 7:30 on a Sunday and was worried about options. I settled on heading to Outback and selected a seat in the bar area. Bad choice, I was right by where all the service was... More
