We were surprised that the place was operating, while we were passing by at about 10PM. We knew the place we were in a couple of times, so we decided to visit it again. Unlike some "Outback" places in New York (where we're from), this one stays apart with its professional service, friendly staff, nice food and pleasant atmosphere. For... More

We had been spring cleaning all day and decided to treat ourselves to a bloomin' onion. This time, we opted for the March Special with fries, cheese and steak on top. That was a mistake. The steak was overseasoned and overcooked. The onion became soggy. For our main entrees we tried to order surf and turf and pork chops. Unfortunately,... More

My wife and I shared a Caesar Salad and a Center Cut Sirloin with baked potato. The steak was tender, tasty and juicy. The employees were very friendly. Not only did our server check on us several times, but the Hostess and the Manager also came by and checked on us. Very enjoyable meal.

For a chain I really like this place. You know what ever you order is going to be good and consistent. I always get the filet which is always cooked to my perfection! We ordered a bloomin onion which is always really good as well. You can't go wrong here.

We were having a send off after a weekend wedding. Even though this was a chain restaurant the food was good and the server was excellent serving the 6 of us. One surprise was an Australian theme with no draft Fosters?? Something to do with the keg system. We had the usual fare steaks, fish and blooming onion. All in... More

I hate to do this. I really really like outback steakhouses...but the quality here is below average. Tonight I ordered the NY strip with broccoli and mashed potatoes. This is not worth the price. The whole presentation was not desirable. The steak was so so. The broccoli was wilted and just looked sad. The mashed potatoes just didn't look fresh.... More

My 3 sisters and I visited this restaurant believing we would have tender steaks and good service. The steaks were so cooked to a crust and so tough We had to cut and tear our steaks into small pieces to eat them.

The lamb chops and broccoli were cooked to perfection! The service was great and the family was very pleased. The location was not in a heavily trafficked area.
