As a chain restaurant, one of its attributes is the constancy of food. If you lake any Outback Steakhouse, you'll like this one. A popular eating and drinking establishment in New Bern, it is staffed with friendly, courteous, competent hosts, servers and bar tenders.

This particular restaurant is good sometimes and bad sometimes depending on management. We have been going there for years and the last few times we have been there the food has been good.

I took my husband out for Valentine's Day dinner. I wanted the table we had for our first date but decided to take the next available. I made reservations but they were packed. We had to wait about 20 minutes. The service was great, as was the food. I used my AARP 10% discount, too.

The service was very good and the steaks are cooked to order. I ordered mine medium rare and it was just right. Next to the Bridgepointe Hotel it was a short walk.

We ate here for our Dinner on New Year's Eve 2016-2017. We had a great Server who kept checking on us and was prompt in taking care of us at our Table. The food was very good and tasty, and the atmosphere was cozy and clean.

Sadly this was the least tasty of all our meals while we were in New Bern. It was so spicy my husband could not eat it. We do not recommend that anyone buy that entree /it was not edible 😡😡😡

After flying in on the later flight it's always a welcome sight. Delicious food and staff. Erin needs to brush up on Australian knowledge. But that's just me messing around with him.

We had a large table and we didn't arrive together but the waitress kept checking on us and supplying us with everything we needed. The food was good except my potato soup was a little cool.
