The last restaurant I reviewed, I focused on my salad. I will start this out the same way, except this salad was pathetic. A small salad made of iceberg lettuce with carrots, red onions, cucumber, tomatoes, cheese & croutons. Mostly lettuce. The meal was okay. My wife had Tilapia & I had a Ribeye. The steak was cooked correctly but... More

First off,way over priced. $48.00 for a cheeseburger, chicken sandwich and a salad. Second,should have known it was going to be a bad experience when we walked in and there were 5-6 ppl waiting to be setted because there was no hostess in site. Finally my husband walked to the bar and ask where the hostess was. Third, we got... More

Another road trip and another Outback on Merchants Drive in Knoxville without disappointment! Adam B was a great server who was polite, friendly, accommodating and cordial! My husband and I split the 12oz ribeye which though a little tough, had great flavor! The big sweet potato n Caesar salad were nicely divided for us to share. We ate the loaf... More

The food was decent. Prices are a little high for what you get. They did let me order off kids meal. A couple beside us got up and walked out on their bill, I'm not sure why. We had a gift card we needed to use so we tried it out. For a free meal it was hot food and... More

My husband and I actually went to nasty outback in September for carry out. The waiter was nice but after I got home we ordered a house salad it was wilted and warm. Our chicken tasted like they cooked it at lunch and reheated it in the microwave when I ordered it. My granddaughter and I went back in October... More

The service was horrible. Brought us bread TWICE b/c the food took so long. Only time the drinks were refilled were when the... More

Have eaten at a lot of Outbacks and this experience as also top notch. Almost. Service and time to get served was great. My steak came out not cooked correctly and they took it back and then made sure I was happy before leaving the table. Clean and not loud even though they were packed.

For a weekend night, I thought this place would be busier. However, we were seated immediately & greeted by our server. Can't complain about the service, which was attentive. Food was just average, and they were out of an item we wanted.
