The food was actually really good.The price was too high for what you get.Expensive food with a family dining feel.Noisy, no atmosphere.They put out great sounding deals but when your plate is sitting in front of you, its lacking.Big cool knives but tiny steaks!

We have visited a number of Outback restaurants. The food is generally consistent. This is a good location, with good service. There are excellent menu choices and the prices very reasonable. Usually crowded, so come early.
