My wife and I have been to Outback many times, and the Victoria Filet is still the best steak! It was tender and juicy, and the baked potato was outstanding. If you order the baked potato, remember to ask for it loaded!

After a personal tragedy hadn't eaten substantial meal for two days. The food we got would have been good if it was anything. Wait time 0 minutes. Server was excellent and prompt. Cheese fries good and steaks were done as requested. Mine underdone but my own fault. Onion soup reminds of dishwater however. Otherwise a nice meal.

We stopped by for lunch and were surprised by new options for lunch. They now have a Philly steak sandwich that is filled with ribeye and is tender and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and competent and the facility was very clean.

The waiter brought bread after I said no bread and my husband had ordered from the glutwn free menu!!! Hubby has celiac disease so we do not do bread. I said no onion on my burger, it had onion. It was as if everything I said he said yes then did or ordered as he pleased. Hubby had steak, cooked... More

Our waitress Ashley was awesome. The food was fantastic. Even the server that brought our items to the table was very friendly and had a great attitude. My only complaint and in this case it's not a big one. The hostess didn't seem to want to be there. She seemed totally disinterested. The rest of the staff was awesome!

At the end of our 2-day, 500+ mile drive home from vacation, and with nothing in the fridge, we opted for a little pampering and went to Outback in Newington. Glad we did! The short wait (Saturday 7 p.m.) for a table was made easier with comfortable seating, a cooler of lemony ice water, and a beeper so we could... More

Outback is the only place I go for steak. It is consistently good and the price is very reasonable when you consider all that comes with it. Service is almost always good, but on this visit (8/19) we had a delightful waitress. Fun, while doing her job well. Look forward to going back.
