Husband and I visited last night for dinner. We asked the hostess if they had happy hour. She said at the bar and we could ask the bartender what time it ends. So we went there. Bartender said they don't have a happy hour. Hostess should have known that information. Wonderful bartender named Mel who was very attentive and quickly... More

Food was slow coming but it was worth the wait. Everything was delicious starting with their Bloomin Onion. We had potato soup which was very good. My husband had steak which was so tender and delicious. I had crab cakes which were very good. We were too full to get dessert but everything on the menu looked good.

Was looking for a local seafood restaurant that I could go to that would be representative of the area but did not get settled until after 7:30 on a Sunday and was worried about options. I settled on heading to Outback and selected a seat in the bar area. Bad choice, I was right by where all the service was... More

I used to go here all the time, then their service went down terribly. I ate an entire dinner there without seeing our waitress! She took our order, brought drinks and then our dinner - then vanished. I wanted steak sauce and we all wanted more drinks but didn't get them. I got up and went to the bar, ordered... More

Our group of six was celebrating special events for this gathering. When we finally got inside the restaurant, we were shocked that the air conditioning was not working! If someone had come outside to notify us of their problem, we would have gone to another place. It was one of the hottest days of summer and were looking forward to... More

This Outback used to be very good, quality service and wait staff, good food and reasonable prices, not any more! Our family used to eat here a minimum of three times a month. A few months ago we had a horrible experience with a long wait, (with numerous empty tables on a Saturday evening), a waitress who could be in... More

Went there tonight Feb 18, 2016. With my family. There was 8 of us and the service was awful. Had to keep asking for drinks, had to ask 4-5 times for napkins and forks even after the apps came. When food came finally it was all messed up. We got things we didn't even order. The server had to take... More

Everything about the place has gone down hill!! Service was terrible. We were in the restaurant for about 2 hours for dinner, no appetizers. It took the waiter almost 15 minutes to come to the table, after we were seated. We asked for drinks, that took forever. Dinner was worse. Steak overcooked and we could't find our waiter to send...

I really enjoyed eating at Outback Steakhouse. Their well marbled rib eye is delicious and the Victoria's filet mignon is fantastic. The bloomin onion is a little too oily for me and but the potato soup more than made up for it!
