We go there regularly for lunch and always enjoy ourselves... They bring a warm loaf of dark breaad out with soft, whipped butter. They offer very reasonably priced lunch combos under for 7-8-9 dollars. The bottomless soup and salad is well-worth the price. The chicken...More

The main complaint by most seems to be about service. I arrived after the evening rush was over, which may have accounted for having fine service. My own biggest complaint is with the flavor and quality of the food. I had the 20oz Melbourne steak...More

We are not big restaurant chain fans and we were intrigued by the steak and lamb buster special that Outback was advertising. The steak was good and the lobster was horrible. It was obviously frozen and had little taste. The waitstaff was wonderful and the...More

The Outback offers good food and drink, but getting it to your table can be an issue. We dined earl on a Saturday to avoid the rush and found the restaurant open and uncrowed, Perfect senario for good service you would think! The first server...More
