Thankfully this restaurant is attached to the Comfort Inn Airport so it's ideal to unwind here with a cocktail while you're staying at the hotel. Never had a bad meal here.

We love Outback even though it's a little loud. Hit it on Wednesday night for the $10.99 Special which is a 6 oz petite cut, Aussie fries and a beer or coke. You sometimes have a bit of a wait. Making a reservation is a bit of a scam unless you have a large group (they don't actually hold a... More

Was with a group of 20 flying to a wedding. Stayed overnight at the Comfort Inn and walked next door. We were having fun and the employees and management didn't care for us having fun, they proceeded to talk about us while directly looking at us. A person in our party too much to drink so they asked if we... More

We have eaten here on average of once per week for the last TEN YEARS. We have never had to deal with Outback's being out of clam chowder on Friday night. (the equivalent of McDonald's being out of hamburger) This is what happened, Unacceptable!.. Explanation was they were out. No! No! No! You cannot let it happen ever for your... More

Very nice evening dinner with friends. Our table ordered steak, shrimp, pork chop and some fish. Everything was very good, served quickly and priced fairly. They have a huge $5 drink menu and a nice atmosphere to have a nice conversation with our dinner guests.

Thank Randy B
