We love dining here. We usually have a good meal. We have had a few let downs but they do a good job the majority of the time. We love how well the steaks are seasoned although it may be too spicy for some people....More

Ate there while on business trip. Looked very busy from the parking lot but got right in. Was greeted right away by the bartender. Ordered the Alice Springs Chicken with a salad. Salad was very fresh and the chicken was awesome. Would eat there again.

We often come as a family since Outback is one of my husband's favorites. The owner loves to stop by to speak to each guest. It's also great for kids.

I went in for the Walk about Wednesday special. I chose the grilled chicken and it was very good. It was a little bit heavy on the pepper but still good. If you have not tried it, do. Very well done, moist and tender. I...More

Went for dinner before a hockey game. The wait was short and the food was delicious. Service was good, too.

This Outback has a new owner and it shows. The steaks, as we knew, would be excellent, and the prices are really decent for the amount of food you get. I ordered the broccoli with cheese and it was outstanding! I'm not a big vegetable...More
