I ordered the new filet medallions with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. My medallions came out on skewers and looked more like shish kebabs and my meat was so tough I could barely chew it. I doubt if I ate one fourth of it and quit. The broccoli was the best of the meal. I have not been a... More

The food ( steak with a lobster tail) was just perfect. But the service was poor, long waiting times and no question if we want to have additional drinks. It ws saturday evenning a lot of people tried to come in and we had to wait approx 35 minutes. But the food was worth it.

Outback is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always delicious, and the service is great.

The front door staff is young and learning, but they try. They do offer a full bar, with TV's at every viewpoint. If you are in a hurry, this is not the place to go, this is more so to relax, calm down from your day and enjoy good food. The service is good The deserts are better!!!!

We went around 1 pm. We were given a lunch menu that I found very hard to understand. The specials were not what they seem to be. My wife ordered a prime rib sandwich which was tasteless. My steak tacos were good. The place was not very busy but service slow. I really like the Outback chain and I hope... More

I have been unimpressed with Outback (any location) for the last several years. The Sumter location is an exception to that. Very friendly staff, great service, and steak cooked perfectly - the first time. This one I will return for another meal.

Thank charles k
