On Mothers Day my wife's aunt came to town to surprise my Mother in Law. After church, they decided that they wanted to go to Outback Steakhouse. I used the website to get on the list. It was pleasantly easy and convenient. We had 3 more people join our party and they made it work. We waited outside on the... More

Love to visit for the bread and atmosphere. They make great blooming onion appetizers. I love the steak salad because of the flavor and textures involved. They have a good selection of alcohol and nonalcoholic drinks. This is a friendly and clean site to visit.

We had a good experience, even though our steaks were not initially cooked to order. They did make it right and that is all you can ask for.

It was prom night and figured it would be an hour plus wait. Sat in the booths by the bar and sat immediately. Server was excellent, food hot, and shocktop was cold. Good dinner. Price is what outback is.

We arrived before the dinner rush and were quickly seated. Very kind and friendly server, but kept forgetting about us...maybe had too many tables??? The pace of our meal was off as we received our drinks and ordered appetizer then waited several minutes to order meal....more delay. Ordered meal and salad and soup finally arrived then meal...again pace was off.... More

We had a quick dinner here one night. I hadn't eaten at an Outback in years. Waitress was great. We were seated quickly and served quickly. Not too loud and we could have a conversation. Food was good too. :)

over the last few years the cut of meat they serve is the worst in town, always tough as shoe leather until you send it back, then you get a better cut of meat....

(I've Never been able to say That,about Any Restaurant I have eaten at.) My friend & I were greeted promptly and the wait was only a few minutes. We were seated & our waitress,... More

Ate at the bar the lat 2 visits. The girls always takes great care of us. No problem at the bar. The drinks are great, service is there before you think of it. Food is very good, steak done perfectly. There was a wait for the regular tables. With the great service from the bar tenders, no real reason to... More

Celebrating graduation for a family member. Thought food was a little to costly and not as good as it should have been.
