Very comfortable atmosphere with excellent food. It is in the center of town so not only can you meet your friend for lunch you can enjoy an afternoon of shopping. Then, return to the Great Outdoors for Restaurant for dessert.

Really love coming here. We try and come every chance we get. The atmosphere is awesome. We really love the steaks and the salads. I do recommend making reservations in advance if coming. I have seen it get crowded but it’s worth it.

Food wasn’t very good and the smokers they allow to sit and smoke in the outdoor seating area completely ruined the meal. And the manager was very rude when we asked to be moved inside. Oh, and the band was terrible.

Yes they are. They even give them a bowl of water. Restaurant suggested making a reservation to guarantee a table so you don't have to wait too long. Enjoy your visit and take a picture for Trip Advisor. Sue S.
