I would rate service as needs work. Seems like too many tables per wait staff. The 4 course meal was great and wish it would stay around.

We arrived twenty minutes until closing so we didn’t expect to get great service but hoped to make up for it by leaving a good tip. However, our time there was very rushed. Only one cup got refilled consistently, our bread was never brought back...More

Outback has the best blackberry sangria!! We always enjoy eating at outback. There was a family sitting near us that was making their little boy scream. [They thought it was funny] That we weren't happy about. But that's not outbacks fault.

This was our first trip to this location. The service and cleanliness was average. The server, although she didn't have any other tables, seemed preoccupied. I would recommend trying a different restaurant if in the area. Food was ok.
