Yesterday my mother treated us to eat at Outback Steakhouse in Matthews, NC. We arrived minutes before 5:00 PM. We all had steak. Jake is a natural when it comes to service. If you go there any time soon just ask for Jake. I prefer Texas Roadhouse food. No complaints just not my favorite.

I love the variety of steak one can order. Seating and service is good. Nice variety for non meat eaters.

What a pleasant surprise. Dinner on a Monday night with my son. Service was fantastic. Food really well prepared and quite tender. I would recommend especially this location.

This food is good, wait staff friendly & gets the order correct. Can be a bit crowded and noisy. You can always sit at the bar - first come, first served.

I know Outbacks get varying reviews, but this one had it all. Easy seating, great waiter, salads were crisp and fresh, lobster succulent, steak nicely seasoned and done perfectly. We had no complaints at all!! Fine evening.

This place is crowded but pretty the food is pretty good. But at the end of the day this place is just another typical chain eatery.

I ate dinner here tonight early in the evening and the food and service were excellent! I changed tables after I was seated because there was cold air blowing from a vent over my table. I ordered the 6 ounce sirloin special with a Caesar salad and a loaded baked potato. The sirloin was perfectly cooked and not too heavily... More

If you want undercooked food, cold food or not all of your order, then this is the place for you. My family and I love Outback and think we know the menu pretty well. So when we started going to this particular Outback several years ago we knew immediately something was a bit off. After giving it several tries we... More

We had the Pork Porterhouse and it was big enough to share. Very good flavor, and the sides were tasty, too. Our waitress was fun, and restaurant was convenient to Comfort Inn Windsor Square (walking distance).
