Great food, some things overbpriced for portion sizes. Great wait staff. Nice bar. The only thing I find consistant is the inconsistecy of steaks. Often tough and overcooked. Last time there they tried to pass off a thin cut sirloin for a filet mignon. Not cool!

Food, service, décor were acceptable. Everything was typical of every other OSH I've ever visited. Nothing was wrong or bad but, on the other hand, nothing was outstanding or unique.

Food was great and service was too. But this place is WAY over priced! 2 strip steak dinners and 1 beer was over $63!

The hostess was preoccupied and almost seemed annoyed, the service was adequate but very cookie-cutter, and the food was very disappointing. This used to be a quality chain, but it seems that they have really let themselves go.

While we try to go to locally owned businesses, Outback has good food. I love their grilled chicken and the sides that come with it, particularly the grilled vegetables. Their salads with the entrees are plentiful, have good dressings and a good way to start your dining. Their hot bread is good as well. I like going back.

We arrived at 7:30 pm, and there were still people waiting to be seated. We waited about 20 minutes before being seated. The waitress was very friendly and took our order. The restaurant gives a mini loaf of bread and butter to eat while waiting for the food to come out. It came out pretty quickly and it was delicious.... More
