Service and food quality has tanked. Recently I ordered the steakhouse salad because I eat it practically every time we visit. They sent out some nasty thrown together salad. Had to send it back. No one offered to comp us anything. Very disappointed.

Why, yes, we did eat at Outback on our trip to the Smokies. Why? Outbacks predictably offer good to very good food at a reasonable price, have attentive but not fawning service and the environment is just right for when we're dressed for vacationing. This...More

The service was good. The blooming onion didn't come up to our expectations on previous ones. My husbands steak had to be sent back because it was not cooked enough. We both had cheesecake and that was good.
