Had the ribs & baked potato. Wasn't too pleased to be seated in the bar area, would have preferred the dining room as it wasn't crowded at all. Server wasn't too attentive. Place was clean and neat. Server was friendly but not pushy or very...More

Steak was extremely substandard and the service was equally lacking. I've come to expect consistency at Outback but this particular location disappointed. The restroom was disgusting which led me to wonder what shape the kitchen was in. Will not repeat.

The food is always great at Outback, and the staff are always friendly and helpful! The atmosphere is also very nice. The bar is great if you like to have a drink with your meal :)

Servicer was excellent, food was good. This Outback is in line with other Outback's as to service, quality of food and appearance. Would eat there again.

Dinner for four (2 adults and 2 Teens) cost us about $90.00. Now-a-days it is about the going rate... I suppose. Meal was good — no complaints, and dessert was good — no complaints. It was an average meal. Service was great. Either we made...More
