Service was good. Drinks very weak, you couldn't taste the liquor. The service was quick and our waiter was very attentive. The blooming onion was a little salty but better than the one I had at an Outback in NY, it was seasoned well. The manager came around to ask was everything ok, or maybe he was the cook...not sure...

We arrived early on Sunday morning for lunch. They had just opened and we were actually the first customers. My wife and I were there with her 86 year old mother and our daughter and her 2 year old. Our waitress could not have been any better at dealing with this broad range of ages, tastes and demands. She told... More

We were seated quickly and our order taken promptly. However, that was the best part of the visit. When our salads arrived I asked the food runner if he could refill my tea. He acted as if that was beneath him. I had had time to take two bites of my salad when our entrees arrived and asked that food... More

We arrived around 8 30 pm. The service was good and the food was also good. We had a salad, philly steak sandwich and burgers. It was decently priced. The server was great.

I have been to other Outback's that I feel have served better food then what I got here. The food wasn't horrible but for the company and the prices I expected the quality to be better then what we got. The steaks were cooked to order but seemed to be blander then what we have received at other locations in... More

In one of those rare alignments of the stars, every member of a party of 6 was unhappy. Orders will filed incorrectly, the (famous) onions were soggy with grease, the steak and fish were equally overcooked.

My mom and I shared an appetizer which was fine. It did take quite a while to get refills though for our drinks. What was unusual to us was the fact that I got served my dinner first and hers didn't come out for another 15 minutes. I sat and waited for her food to come out but my entrée... More

Terrible server, slow and uninterested and it showed up by how empty the place was. Never been to an outback when it was so empty. My chicken dinner was luke warm rubber chicken, other parts of the meals were slow to be given to us. Easy to get to with lots of parking. Will not return

We had a bad experience at a different Outback a decade ago, and it has stayed on our "No Go" list since then. However, we were driving around, and on a whim decided to give it another try. No hostess was present when we walked in, and stood there for a bit. Got seated, and service was decent. I got... More
