I normally love this Outback. Under new management. Service was horrible. Baked potato was so small it had about 3 bites. 26.00 for a filet the size of a deck of cards. Food tasted okay but not a good value. Too expensive.

Food was good. Waitress was friendly and responsive. I'd go back if I visited this city again. Steak was perfectly prepared. I love outback and I'm glad they are consistent in food preparation.

Had one of their Walkabout Wednesday specials. The steak, though I knew it was not a large portion, I was surprised at how small it actually was. The baked potatoe looked huge next to it.

I was attending a funeral and debated whether to venture out, but I felt that a hearty meal might help me. I had seen the Outback as I drove by off the highway. It was close to the hotel, so I figured why not? I sat at the bar and instantly was made to feel welcome and appreciated by three... More
