Lots of menu choices,food was pretty good,not gourmet good but tastey. It's very popular so getting in a dinner can be challenging as they don't take reservations. They do have pagers so onceyou check in you can leave and come back when you are buzzed. The meal was good but I felt like I was in a pub. Perhaps I... More

Went here for a steak salad. Server was friendly, we sat outside in the warm breezes. I asked for med-rare steak, the steak was VERY pink/red. The salad was very flavourful (dressing) but too watery, like they didn't spin the water out of it?? Anyway, there are worse places you could go, but don't make this your first choice.

I remember the days when Outback was mostly steaks, burgers and the bloomin' onion. I couldn't believe how they've expanded the menu. Plenty of appetizer choices, nice seafood options, and a super-creative cocktail menu. Both indoor and outdoor seating. A little pricey but still a more than fair deal.

Didnt need to make a reservation, was able to get right in at 6 pm. We were seated immediately, our server was right there to take drinks and appetitizer orders. My steak was awesome, my wife's lobster and filet minion was good, the filet portion seemed a bit smaller than what she had ordered but she was still happy. The... More

For ten years this has been our go-to restaurant for family night out dinners. Blooming onion and bread are standards. We are happy to have lots of vegetarian options at a steak house like soups and salads. Very fair pricing and consistent high level quality.

Their food is consistently good. We were seated outside (we were given a choice). Our server tried hard but there was a mix-up in the kitchen or w/ some other employee. The mgr came to our table and made it right by giving us free ice teas (what we ordered) and my husband was given free lobster. No complaints!

Surf and Turf for me and him. Was so good. And who can stop at Outback without having a blooming onion. Service is top notch. I forget her name but she's been there forever and I somehow always get lucky and get her. Blonde lady, a little older, very pretty, been there for years. I wish I knew her name... More

Our tip would be to avoid this place. We went late one evening just for coffee and desert. Deserts where excellent, coffee took quite a while then our waitress brought the bill without once asking if we'd like another coffee or a warm up. We generally tip 15-25% depending on service...saved $4. We thought we'd just got a bad night... More
