The outback burger is really a great burger!! Made with real beef,thick and juicy. Almost like a homemade burger, not like these burgers you get that are frozen in between 2pieces of paper and thrown on the grill, not even close..... This is freshly made and really good and priced fairly reasonable!!!I believe it was 9.50 ,not to bad for... More

The food was good. We got the filet mignon...Victoria's. It was cooked well, had good flavor. We also tried the new filet that's on the hash browns with the onion rings on the top. They were fine...nothing fancy. We tried 3 of the different kids' meals for our kids. They were fine.

We've never had a bad meal here. The food is consistently good and the service is prompt and courteous. Mike at the bar was great.

I have been staying in the area for six weeks now and have eaten here at least six times. The food goes without saying, the servers are warm and friendly. The one time I had a problem, over cooked steak, the manager made it right on the spot.

Got a very tough prime rib, at first I thought it was the knife so I used another one, nope, just tough. This is the first time that I ever got something like this at an Outback, I'm guessing that being in Connecticut where the cost of operations is very high the owner uses cheaper meat to keep the price...

Our stop for just a hamburger and salad was a bit of a disappointment. The burger bun was tasteless and maybe a bit on the stale side. Fries were semi cooked. Found out they ran out of fries for the night after our order. Chopped salad was very good. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.

I ordered the Porterhouse steak and was a little disappointed because when it came to the table, it was nothing like the picture on the menu. It was SUPER small for the price. It was cooked well though and it tasted great. The asparagus was pencil thin and the ends were not cut off before being served. They were also... More

Our party of 4 had early dinner to celebrate a birthday at the Southington Outback location on a Saturday in early July. We started the festivities with various cocktails, including: Tiki Bandit, Blackberry Sangria x 2, and Huckleberry Hooch Moonshine Cocktail (blackberry flavored). We enjoyed these immensely. The menu was large so it took us a while to make our... More

We have been enjoying the food and service at this location for 15+ years - it's been well worth the drive from West Hartford until recently... One of our favorites (simply grilled Mahi) has been removed from the menu, and on our visit last night, the service was less than the "A" team we've been used to (Daisy, Kathy, Mike... More
