Outback is always busy no matter what city you are in! So, expect a wait especially when going there at peak times such as a Saturday evening. The reason they are busy is because they serve good food for a family/couple on a budget. I have not had many complaints with their food choices. If you want super fast service... More

I used to love Outback. The last 3 times I was there, my steak was chewy and grisly. So after these three episodes I haven't gone back. Hopefully the new restaurant will be better. I'll try them soon and report back. In the meantime I've enjoyed my steak at another local steakhouse. In my opinion, the service is stale and... More

I guess it was just opened, because we came twice and the place had a wait of 1,5 hours. We came on Saturday around 7 pm it was crowded with 1 hour wait, then next day as we were staying nearby, the same story although we came earlier around 6pm.

Food quality/preparation has been inconsistent on several visits. This restaurant, as mentioned, will be moving to a more visible location probably this spring or summer. Hope they improve the kitchen quality

Our first time here, we belong to Dine Rewards & Outback is one of the restaurants in the program. Our food was OK but the service was not the greatest! Lots of workers but they stand around and talk or do nothing. Dirty tables and they walk past them! Just not a good experience. We understand they will be moving... More

Traveling from North Carolina to Minnesota, we called it a night at the Best Western Motel right off US-30, slightly east of I-65. At that point, US-30 is "Restaurant Row." We drove a few blocks west on US-30 and saw this Outback. Relying on our experiences with the Outback in Hermantown MN, we stopped here for supper. This Outback looks... More

We stopped here while we were in town for a concert. We have not been to outback in years as the one in our town closed long ago. Our waiter was very friendly and got us our beers and other drinks relatively quickly. I ordered a 12 oz ribeye which was priced about $25.00. Our food came out and we... More
