Had dinner here recently while traveling for work. Ordered the sirloin and it was fantastic. Cooked like I ordered it. Only drawback is my cup of potato soup came well after my steak. Usually the server would ask if I still wanted it, but I didn't care as I ate it and cleaned my plate. Good overall experience.

My friends and I went to Outback for lunch. We first got a Blooming Onion that could have been cooked more. I love cooked onions, not so much crisp tender unless it's on a hamburger. It crunched and really shouldn't have. Cooking would have helped the extreme spiciness. I got the salad with steak strips, medium rare. The blue cheese... More

Looking for a rack of lamb dinner, I settled on Outback. My first mistake was assuming their posted menu was up to date. They stopped serving the lamb "recently ", although they still had some in their freezer. "24 hour notice " needed to eat that. Then, settled on their best ribeye. 2nd mistake was not leaving in the beginning.... More

Why, yes, we did eat at Outback on our trip to the Smokies. Why? Outbacks predictably offer good to very good food at a reasonable price, have attentive but not fawning service and the environment is just right for when we're dressed for vacationing. This Outback was no exception and we enjoyed the meal.

The service was good. The blooming onion didn't come up to our expectations on previous ones. My husbands steak had to be sent back because it was not cooked enough. We both had cheesecake and that was good.

Our server introduced herself as as Bayley and said she was new. Congratulations, she did a great job of taking care of us during our dinner just as well as an experienced server. We started with a Half order of Blooming Onions which were over cooked & also got really cold very quickly. We mentioned it to our server and... More

We meet with some friends of ours about once a month to "catch up" at a local restaurant somewhere in the Asheville area. This month we chose Outback Steakhouse in Asheville. Our waitress was Cassie. She was so personable and friendly. She is a great asset to this restaurant. She made a great meal with friends even better. Having eaten... More

My wife and I went to Asheville's Tunnel Road Outback on Sunday afternoon, September 4th about 4p.m. We usually eat in one of the booths in the bar area for faster seating. We seated ourselves and waited about 8 - 10 minutes for a server. The bartender noticed and went into the back. Almost immediately a girl came out to... More

Happened upon this place as it was close to where we were staying on our East Counties vacation! Small waiting time, lovely atmosphere, fantastic food and great service. Don't forget to check out the No Worries Wednesday! Excellent value! Loved the fish!
