Tonight 1/13/17 we were very surprised at the bar condition as we sat from 8 PM to 9:30 PM when the bar was completely empty and the empty dirty dishes beside us were never removed and I never saw the bartender wipe the bar at all. He did eat in the back of the bar and talk to staff and... More

Food was good, the ribs are bad, steaks are over cooked. The head seating person had look like put his cloths on out of a basket next to the washing machine. Very poor and could not say he was sorry and just seat us wanted to act like there was not a reservation for us which I know for sure... More

Went for dinner with a group of 5. The food and service were ok nothing special but not terrible. I am not sure if it is just lower expectations or the new norm but everything was average. The blooming onion was a bit overdone the second appetizer arrived just before the meal. The pasta was dry and the shrimp were... More

Da wife and I pulled in for dinner about 8 after an OSU Buckeyes game. No wait. Clean, bright place. Very nice waitress (Jaclyn). I know it’s a steakhouse but we weren’t up to something that heavy. We decided to split the Aussie appetizer sampler platter. Da wife got the baked potato soup and I got the French onion soup.... More

My wife and I hadn't been to an Outback Steakhouse for awhile, so we were looking forward to our visit. Unfortunately it didn't go well. The host was taking names for the wait list when we got there, even though the restaurant was only half full. He said it was shift change time. Yet, he promptly allowed his buddies to... More

My family (5 of us) was in the Bethel Rd area for some errands and decided to pick up lunch... For whatever reason, my husband suggested Outback. We haven't visited an Outback in a few years so I thought it might be good. We went at 1:30 on a Monday and got appetizers. There was nothing great about the visit.... More

Came here with work to end the day and we all enjoyed ourselves. Service was good, drinks had no complaints and everybody got something different from the bar. I got a Hard Root Beer. Didn't hear any issues with the food, my meal was pretty easy to prepare, but tasted fresh...chicken tacos. The aioli sauce was excellent. The whole experience... More

So sad to say that one of our standby restaurants is on the downhill slide. A recent visit had a nearly 20 minute wait just to get drinks. As the night progressed we encountered many problems. The waitress took our order and we didn't see her for ten minutes. We asked for some bread, as we noticed other tables had... More

Stopped in for lunch recently and hadn't been in an Outback steakhouse in some time. The place was mostly empty but the service I received was very good. For the price I would have expected at least a little presentation with my food. Instead it looked like something you would get at a greasy spoon diner for half the price.... More

My wife ask "where is the place with the brown bread?" Outback, thats it! We were at the fairgrounds. A quick search revealed the location about 20 minutes away. Also we could make reservations online! The earliest it would allow was 45 minutes but after a 10 minute pause it was still on my phone and voila! Rezerved for 7:15.... More
