Bread. Ice tea. Chicken on the Barbie. Loaded potato. Nothing unusual or special. Just a good, consistent Outback Steakhouse lunch. Service was good. No wait on a Monday around 1pm.

Dined at this restaurant and believe it or not when it was time to pay the bill I had to go hunt for the server. She could not be found, another server had to hunt her down. Service could be better.

As always we had a great time and a great meal at Outback. We both had the Wood-Fire Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie for starters followed the Perfectly Grilled Salmon. Great food, great atmosphere and great service from Johnny!
