We try to drop in here every year on our way to Gatlinburg and it has not disappointed yet. This is a good Outback, with good service, good food and atmosphere that is 'at' or 'above' expectations.

I eat at this location about every month with mixed results. My last visit was the worst because everything was burnt except for my medium steak that was cooked rare. Their new hash brown was burnt black (i kid you not it was BLACK). The only thing correct was the bread and butter. This was a takeout order so i... More

We tried the Wednesday night sirloin steak special. It was average, a bit strings, and a tad overcooked. Amber did a terrific job waiting on us. The drinks and dessert were much better than the main meal. Acceprable; however, nothing exceptional.

I will say the food was excellent, as expected for an Outback. There was no wait to be seated when we arrived about 7:30 on a Friday night. This was a nice surprise, and we got our drinks and ordered our meals by 7:40. The waitress brought bread out and we ordered no appetizer. Our waitress made fresh decaf coffee... More

Ate here because it was close to the hotel. Loved that they had the UT game on. Adult food was great. Kids medallions were very tough and spiced as if adults ate them.

Five of us met at this Outback for a 'friend's night out' ...... Each of us encountered some type of disappointment with what we ordered. One friend got cold shrimp, I had ordered the small ribeye but was brought the large one and charged for it ($26 for a steak that was NO better than one at a cheap steakhouse)... More

My husband and myself visited 8/18/16. We got seated quick and waited about 5mins or so before anyone stopped at our table. First a girl stopped and asked if anyone greeted us,we said no. She took our drink order,then another guy came by and said he was our server. After still waiting for our drinks,another guy came by and said... More
