Group of us enjoyed our meal along with sitting and catching up together. Restaurant was fairly empty and no one waiting for a table so no pressure. Waitress took our orders quickly and food was delivered correctly. Everyone enjoyed what they got.

Outback can be counted on to have quality food at reasonable prices and this restaurant is no exception. Our server was very good and the food was server quickly and tasted great. I have noticed the quality of their steaks slipped some in the past years but the ones we had were above average.

We chose a standard burger and fries and seared ahi. Both were delicious. Prices reasonable. Service quick and friendly.

What can I say? If you normally dine at the Outback anywhere in the US and you like it, you'll like this one, too. You're likely to get the same food, same service at resort community prices. Locals don't eat here.

Swore this place off, said I would never go back. Against my better judgement went back for the steak and shrimp special. Food and service was much better than I've had there in the past few years. Bartender Britney was on her game.

if it takes me 45 minutes to use iPhone technology to place an order with their app, how likely can I trust them, if the incompetence starts at the top

Great service. You have become an asset to the outer banks again. Megan waitress, fast, efficient, and personable. She immediately knew I had a dining reward. Card gave them trouble, but they figured out away to make up for it, excellent customer satisfaction. Very pleased with service and food. Great management and team that really cares about your experience

I found this Outback to be clean, well staffed, and ready to shine again. As a former employee, I was allowed to have a walkabout, I was quite impressed with the change I saw. Our local folks have taken ownership for this chain, give it a try. You might be surprised. Good stuff.

We ate there tonight and had a very good experience with the manager Crystal . She was extremely helpful and very customer orientated. Coconut shrimp was delicious!
