We are from out of town, but every time we are in a town with an Outback, we eat there. My husband always starts with a salad because he says it is the best salad he has ever eaten anywhere. The type of steak he follows that with varies. I always start with a Wallaby Darned. This is followed with... More

Only the mashed potatoes were good. All 3 of our steaks came out overcooked, dry and luke warm. Service was VERY VERY slow. Server was nice but we had to ask the bar for refills of our drinks because they were so slow. Stay away, take your money to any of the 4 restaurants within walking distance.

This was our third time eating at Outback. The first two experience were not that good. Food not that good, service either. However, we decided to give it a third try. The experience here was OK but it was nothing special. Food typical, service mediocre at best. Would we go back? Yes but we would expect nothing great nor special.

I've never been a big fan of Outback but my son loves it so we stopped for lunch after a day of shopping. The food was worse than I remembered. Salad had wilted lettuce. We ordered cheese fries as appetizer. I've had better fries at a fast food restaurant. The only positive thing was the service. From the hostess who... More

This is usually our go to, favorite, consistently good food, place to go. Our dinner last week was not up to par. We ate here in April and it seemed not to be up to standards then, as well . Unfortunately, this continues. We ordered a bloomin' onion - very small and over cooked. We also ordered a rack of... More

As Outbacks go, this was a good one. Everything came out right, the service was prompt and friendly, and it was an enjoyable evening all around. I'd go back.
