Never a bad or mediocre steak so a keep coming back. Once I had an appetizer that could have been warmer but they replaced it by the time I took a drink from my tea. Never missed a beat.

I'm comparing Outback to Longhorn Steakhouse, right or wrong, they seem to be in the same market. I started with an excellent glass of Shiraz, but failed to notice it was $11.50, but glad I experienced it. The appetizer plate was good and greasy deep fried goodness. My ribeye steak had more gristle than I would like, and the mashed... More

Went on Valentines day for a nice dinner, started out really well, didn't wait long for a table, though it was very crowded, appetizer and salads came quickly, after that it went straight down hill. After the salad, we waited 25 minutes and no entree, asked the waiter, who checked only to tell us that the kitchen lost our order.... More

The first thing that you should learn running a restaurant is that you do not bring out the meal with the salad at the same time! You bring the meal after the salads have been eaten. So this meal started off on the wrong foot. The Victoria's Filet was not tender at all. It wasn't tough, it just wasn't tender.... More

We generally don't give ratings of 5, but could not find a reason not to in this case. My wife and I had a steak lunch this past Saturday and were able to walk right in around 1 o'clock. We were seated quickly and greeted shortly thereafter by James, who really is the reason for such a high rating. He... More

We visited our Mechanicsville Outback for lunch today. It was practically empty when we walked in around noon with our party of five. We had a 10 minute unexplained wait. After three of us ordering Ahi tuna salads and waiting to be served the manager or an assistant came to tell us they did not have the tuna. Seemed to... More

Excellent food. Cordial staff. Wait time was under 45 minutes. When our waitress was delayed in checking on us other staff "table touched ". I was especially impressed with the management, including the hostesses who sat us at our table and the manager who worked nonstop greeting customers to ensure our meal was prepared to specifications. The cooks prepared our... More

Wow! We were in Virginia for an event involving one of our kids. After the event, along with friends, we decided to eat at The Outback restaurant and man am I glad we did! There was 7 of us and EVERYONE had an amazing meal! First off they were open while surrounding restaurants ( i.e. Ruby Tuesday's) were not. Could... More

The six ounce sirloin is the perfect size. Accompanied by broccoli and a sweet potato plain and you have a great meal.

Beings that Outback is the only Steakhouse in Mechanicsville, it's definitely the best restaurant in this area... It also feels more like a local spot than a chain restaurant. They are very good at making sure your steak is cooked just how you like it... as they should since they are a steakhouse. The service here is awesome!
