The restaurant wasn't very busy as it was fairly early in the dinner hour. We ordered the special which took over an hour to arrive at our table. The food was okay, my steak was a little tough, although my husband said his was fine....More

We went for lunch. The service was good. My burger was kind of dry for $9.99. Eagan's has better burgers. The philly cheesestake sandwich could use a little more flavor. But was good overall.

I reviewed this restaurant about 6 weeks ago because I wanted to address the abysmal lunch service my husband and I had experienced. We decided to give them another try this weekend, and I'm glad we did. As always, the food was very good; but...More

We've visited many Outback Steakhouse restaurants. The 2 prominent ones near us are in Tacoma & Olympia, WA. The phrase, "by the hand of the chef" is applicable & evident in the differences of quality & taste in these 2 locations. Olympia is by far,...More
