I have given Outback several tries at several different locations and my experience with the food is always the same: too much of their house seasoning on everything! My salad was way too salty because of the seasoning. My steak had just a tab more than I'd like, but it was also overdone. I asked for medium and it was... More

Service and food was very good. They stayed open a little later because of the Fiesta Bowl and it was New Years Eve.

So we sat at the bar and Shelly is a superstar. She was attentive without being obtrusive. Great personality. The recommendations she made were spot on and she is truly an asset to the restaurant. Her service is more like an upscale steakhouse than an Outback. The steak was delicious and the prices were more than fair for the quality... More

Recently we have not done well at this chain. However, this had reaffirmed my confidence. Food was well prepared and we had a delightful server. Tricky to get to if you're going South on I17 but worth the U turn.

There were only a few decent places within walking distance of my hotel, so I was really pleased to find this Outback Steakhouse. I had an excellent waiter, and the food did not disappoint.

We love Outback. The bread and honey butter are great, and they are wonderful about letting us split a steak and ordering an extra salad and baked potato. The waitress was friendly, efficient and helpful.

My husband and I were visiting Phoenix recently, and we visited an Outback Steakhouse close to where we were staying. It was a Friday night, and they were busy, but the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We decided to eat at the bar, and the bartender went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. She remembered our... More

Food was great and service was fast. We came at busy time and sat in bar area for fast seating. Chicken tacos were really good.
