Whether it was the fault of the kitchen, the server, or both is not crystal clear. Yes, the place was extra busy, but they did not deliver an acceptable dining experience this time. In a party of 4, 3 meals were not satisfactory. The manager admitted errors and comped 2 of the meals. 1 dinner did not arrive at the... More

Had to stand and wait for someone to help us. After a few minutes a server finally came from the back to seat us but said nothing about specials. Our waiter kept coming by to say that he would be "right back after..." but then he would walk by us after he did that but would be on his way... More

Great location you can bring your dog and eat outside. If cold the have propane heats to help. the same great service outside as in. We didn't feel as rushed outside and the food was hot and good. We like going ever time we are in town.

Never saw a huge Rib Eye in my life!DON'T GET THE SALTED CARAMEL SKILLET. TOO SALTY. Our service was attentive and friendly we enjoyed the meal and will return for more of the Coconut Shrimp.

We eat here from time to time and the food is always good. I love their ribs and the bread. Good for groups up to 6, not good for large groups, can't sit together or move tables together.

The food was very good - the wait was terrible. We had reservations and ate 2 hours later. Might want to try a different outback.

We dine here about once a month. They are always busy, but in spite of the number of diners, the noise level is not bad due to booth configuration. They do not accept reservations, but you can call ahead for "preferred seating" (which is apparently different from a "reservation"). The steaks are very good and they have always been prepared...

We eat here several times a year and always enjoy both good food and good service. Took our friends from Montana here last week. Really liked the "rustic ribeye" and the crispy cobb salad, both generous and fresh. I had the "Wild Tea" cocktail in a mason jar, very good. Recommended.
