I had high hopes for this Outback, but they have been erased by two recent trips there. About six weeks ago, I was in for lunch and had a lady bartender as my server. Unpleasant experience as she was far more interested in chatting with...More

Do not like the Alice springs chicken too much money for what you get. There was one little strip of bacon and two small pieces of chicken

I went with friends for a birthday gathering. We were able to be seated right away. Service was good. Food was about what I would expect from a chain restaurant. Good atmosphere.

Food was so good. Staff great. Kazz is awesome. We went late and the food wasn't old. Our steak was supper. The cheesecake is to die for. It melts in your mouth.

Our wait time was minimal. The steaks were all cooked perfect and the taste was awesome. Service was fairly quick but the waiter was forgetful. We asked several times for refills before we got them and there was a birthday boy in our group(16yo) that...More
