After being seated and receiving drinks, we waited quite awhile before our server returned. But she then was very efficient and diligent about meeting our needs. Food was excellent, atmosphere pleasant.

Good food and service. Our last experience wasn't so good and we probably wouldn't have gone back but we had a gift card we wanted to use. Glad we went as this was a very pleasant evening out for us!

This is the second time I visit Outback in as many months and I have been pleasantly surprised. Their friendliness , cleanliness and food is among the best in town.

They were fairly busy for a Saturday at about 12:30 p.m., but I wouldn't say overwhelmed. We were seated and it took about 20 minutes to get soft drinks. It took about another 15 minutes and then came our appetizer and within in about two minutes our salads. Timing a bit off there. Our waiter took our order, but the... More

Husband and I stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday while out on errands. This was our first visit to an Outback Steakhouse. I had a wedge salad that was out of this world, and the bloomin onion burger, which was also delicious. Hubs had steak and potato and also enjoyed his meal. I'd say service was a... More

This was the worst outback EVER ! Cold food Ran out of mushrooms. Wait staff was slow, greeters were more worried about socializing then customers.

I dont like giving bad reviews but tonight I would not even call it service. We sat in the bar and our waitress seamed like she had an attitude. Never ask about drink refills, no bread, no plate pick up, no desert. She sat at the bar while he had to get another waiter to bring our check. Food was... More

When a business doesn't care enough to fix their advertising lights you know you're in for some lame eats. Attention to detail is severly lacking here. My steak was tough as old boots and the sides were overcooked. The kids steaks were so bad they ate mine which wasn't much better. I'd pass on this location and head over to... More

Can't complain about the service here, we get the same server almost every time...he's good. My wife ordered the 6 oz filet with the $5 add-on for unlimited shrimp. I had the 9 oz filet. Both ordered medium, my wife's came medium well (nothing you can do about that) mine came medium rare. Well, I wasn't going to send it... More
