They were very busy. I asked to speak with the manager she said she was too busy to talk to me. My prime rib was mooing, we were seated after a wait then not visited by our waitress after we ordered. Even if everything was not up to outback steakhouse standards I gave her a 50$ tip. I wouldn't go... More

Always tasty and great service. Beef is dry aged and cooked to perfection. Not nearly as expensive as other 'higher end' steak houses serving the same cuts.

Can depend on Outback for a good steak regardless of location. Wedge salad was huge. Tried the new garlic medallions which were tender and delicious. Bread as always was hot and fresh.

Went for lunch and there was a good selection of choices. I had the sirloin steak plus tortilla soup and a dinner salad. The steak although juicy was a little tough. The soup was delicious and the salad plus tomato dressing was very nice. My wife had a large salad that she said was very good.

Good food with average service. Gets pretty busy and a little pricey because the food pricing is a bit high for this kind of joint. Good 3 stars but no more for us.

Every year, Outback shows their appreciation for Veterans by giving away a bloomin onion and a large drink. This is the only restaurant that I know of that provides the service without the requirement of a "dine in only"! Just order "to go", no questions ask. Oh yeah, there is one question, they will politely ask you "what kind of... More

Whenever I have a craving for a steak, we go here. The outback special sirloin is delicious. I wouldn't go anywhere else for steak. Service has always been great. Wish they had more beer variety on tap.
