The "steak" I got was overdone, tough, and probably bought at Safeway down the street. I got the "vegetable,"which was heated, canned veggies. The potato was wrinkled and poor, at best. The only reason to go here would if everything else is closed.

Ate last night with a buddy. 7:00 and they were out of Prime Rib so both of us did Ribeyes. Service was good to start, beer cold but wow when the steaks came it was disappointing. Not only did it take forever to get the steaks after our salads arrived, both were over cooked and the frys were cold and... More

My husband and I went to the Outback tonight, big mistake! The restaurant wasn't busy therefore, I really don't understand how the cooks can mess up a simple dinner. I was actually shocked when I receive my Queensland chicken since I ordered the larger piece. I can't imagine what it would look like if it was any smaller. On top... More

My husband and I were delighted to see that our local Outback is now open for lunch every day. We ate lunch there recently, and enjoyed ourselves. This location has recently been totally remodelled, and it now has a much more attractive look, both inside and out. Happily, the food hasn't changed. They are still a great place to go... More

Outback is able to maintain its standard across the country, from coast to coast. Many restaurant chains are not always able to accomplish that. Good food, helpful and pleasant staff. The new decor is a bit "Spartan", but may be well received by Pacific Northwest clients.

Tried the Old Fashioned advertised cocktail....weak. Wedge salad was delish. Ribeye was skinny and cooked to order but just not manly enough if you know what I'm sayin. Overall it was as expected aka poor man's steakhouse.

I haven't been to an Outback Steakhouse in years, but I remembered it as having huge steaks and great baked potatoes. Guess it's changed, or I have a bad memory. Maybe it's because their menu is more varied now and their budget is stretched too thin. My husband ordered ribs and french fries. Those were good. I ordered a medium-rare... More

Main dishes were good quality. Starters were grease and poorly done. Dinner was served cold. Server was rude and inattentive. Food is not worth the price.

We haven't been to an Outback in a long time. We went after car shopping as had seen the special blooming onion with fries, bacon and cheese.. OH MY..it was good. We were hungry but not even able to eat our meal as the onion was so filling. We are talking about going back today for another. :)
