We went today February 20, 2017 my husband and I. We got there a little before 5:00 pm with 2 people ahead of us plenty of empty tables and we were told it would be a 10 minute wait. The coconut shrimp was not good... shrimp was tender but the coconut crust was was tasteless and greasy. Had to ask... More

Two couples went for dinner, arriving just before 5:00 to avoid the Saturday night rush and found the restaurant to be half full - a good sign that our meals would come out the way we would order them. Our server, a young man, was attentive and brought us water and beverages quickly. However, this dinner with friends went downhill... More

Delicious steak is always pleasing to have. Good service is always a plus. With great seating and good food you can never go wrong. It's always a pleasure to go. It's great for reservations and time with family. Plus it's not a loud restaurant which is another plus for me.

We visit Outback Steakhouse locations in several states. Generally the food is what we've come to expect and we can depend on getting a good meal at okay prices. Tonight Outback was busy, but the estimated wait of 20 minutes was correct and we were offered small tastes of Awesome Blossom by a pleasant server as we waited. Tad, the... More

The reason we went to Outback was because of the special Wednesday menu. However, when we were seated the special menu was not given to us. We proceeded to ask for the menu and when I asked why we didn't receive the menu when we sat down we were told that they forgot to give it to us. So I... More

Our Senior Lunch Bunch ate here this past week and had an excellent experience! The food was great with a good variety to please everyone. The desserts are definitely worth looking at. What really impressed us was the service we received, from the gentleman greeting us at the door to the very efficient waitress who kept everyone happy. Any time... More

After a full day of work, a group of business associates and I decided to take dinner at the Outback. Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by a very pleasant hostess who quickly sat us. Our waitress was delightful with a positive attitude and made several suggestions as to what we might like to try. She had a good... More

The food was good, salad, chicken wings, mom had shrimp and salad. But the service is horrible. Haven't been in a few years due to horrible service back then. Much hasn't changed. Waiting 20 minutes for a check and a to go box is unacceptable. Will never go again

I went for dinner and Michele E was my server. I followed her recommendations and everything was very good, I enjoyed everything!!! I like the most the Wedge salad…….. My pork porterhouse was perfectly cooked. The time I went (5:30pm) was perfect because it was not full I liked the attention the most, although, the food was excellent
