Although I haven't been here in a few years I was not disappointed. The restaurant was clean, the staff were friendly. Our waitress was very attentive and thorough. And to top it off the food was delicious, well seasoned, and the temperature of the food was good. Everyone in our party was pleased. I highly recommend this restaurant for a... More

Stressful time for good industry during the Master's Tournament. The hostess did a great job clearing a table for us. The server Bryant was attentive and friendly. Food arrived promptly. Pleased all around.

We waited for long periods to have drinks refilled or to request additional needs for our meal. The steaks were ok, given other locations we have visited before.

We stopped in for a quick bite of lunch. Had fabulous service and a very good grilled chicken sandwich! Nice and clean quiet atmosphere. Def return.

Friday night and the place was packed. Sat at the bar and we were seated right away. Salmon seasoned and cooked perfectly, sides were hot and delicious. Service was excellent. Have been to Outback before and it was good, but this was so much better.

After becoming very annoyed with trying to place a to go order last night I called and spoke with the manager. She answered the phone in an upbeat cheerful manner assured me she would take my order and have it ready in a timely fashion.

Took my boys here after a USC basketball game. Friendly staff and attentive to our needs. Outback is probably the most consistent chain I know. If you do have an occasional issue, they always make it right.

I had a gift card for Outback so we decided to use it on a Saturday night. When we arrived the wait was one hour, but because we had the card and no where else to go we decided to wait. It was crowded and uncomfortable, though the hostesses were friendly and sympathetic. Once we were seated the waiter was... More

OK, it's an Outback with all of what that brings. Gingerbread Cookies Martini needs to be on your "try it" list! Casos are fine as is the Steakhouse Salad. Bloomin Onion petals for the lighter appetite. Dipping sauce for the onion seemed hotter than normal. French Onion Soup and Clam Chowder are good to very good. They could turn down... More
