We stopped by on our way South after trying a few other options that had long wait times. Outback is consistently good for a nice filet mignon.

Several of our group went to this steakhouse on a Friday night, there was a waiting list for about thirty minutes. It was well worth the wait, the steaks were very good and the waiter was very courteous and efficient. Would recommend this steakhouse to anyone, very clean

Steak was dry and tough, waitress wasn't sure about the drink I ordered she had to ask what was in it even after I pointed to the drink in the menu. She seemed as if she was really forcing herself to be nice and cheerful.

It had been awhile since I've been in an outback restaurant(the one in my hometown has abruptly closed) so I thought I would 'treat" myself to a good steak. what I got was frustration, anger and a still empty stomach. I went into this location on a quiet Sunday afternoon and since I was alone(only reason I can think of)... More

We were looking forward to a nice dinner out. The server was very attentive. We ordered drinks and cheese fondue. The fondue was thin and very salty. I ordered the crab cakes, potato soup and salad. The soup was good but again salty. The crab cakes were almost burned and the salad had a lot of brown lettuce. My husband... More

I'm surprised with the numerous bad reviews. I have eaten dinner at this restaurant four or five times during the past six months. Never had a bad meal. The bone in 22 ounce ribeye is excellent. I thought it was good value. Sweet potato cooked to perfection. I usually sit in the bar and watch TV or get a little... More

The service at Outback made all the difference to our family. The restaurant is exactly what you would expect from this restaurant chain. Excellent steaks, and the awesome bloomin onion. However, there were a few mistakes with our order - but our server Patty (I believe her name was) quickly took care of it and had it all corrected in... More

We came in at 11:02AM on Saturday. Just a few customers so not busy. It took almost an hour to get our food. Kids were hungry and getting quite upset it was taking so long.
