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 was alone so I sat down at the bar and the bartender was great. Warm... 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 eater, but it was cooked perfectly and so big I could have made a meal... More

Took out of town family there for a nice quiet dinner. Food was good, however service was lacking. Server brought appetizer but no plates, had to ask for them 3 times and by then the salads/soup had arrived. Did not bring out the bread either, had to ask a manager for that. After you have to go to a manager... More

Had a rib eye cooked perfectly. Dinner salad with tangy tomato dressing was excellent. Always quick service. Used the dine in rewards app and got 50% off my meal. This has become a regular spot for me. Friendly staff. Adult beverages available.

Party of 7 at 5 pm slow time. Steaks overcooked terribly, $4 extra for a blue cheese salad. Did not provide set ups for crab legs. Had to ask 3 times for siverware ( no exageration) to many good steak houses to mess with this chain again. All steaks well done (yuck)

We had a party of 11 after 7 pm. We were seated promptly. We had two servers who took great care of us. When anything was forgotten someone was quick to bring it to us. We noticed a few servers would help with different aspects, so it appears they have great teamwork. The food was delicious as were the drinks.... More

While traveling on business in Independence MO, I stopped here with a colleague. We were looking for good food at a fair price but also quick as we still had a couple hours of work left in our day. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I will definitely stop here again!
