We frequent Outback in Richmond and wanted a good steak when traveling in Harrisonburg. Our waiter, Matthew was great. He was accommodating and we enjoyed him waiting on us. Steak was great-cooked as ordered. Would return to this location.

The food was good and the waiter was friendly. Service was very slow and we waited over 45 minutes for our food. A few of our colleagues had to leave because it was taking too long. The restaurant was not very crowded at the time....More

We normally love the food at Outback; however, the steak was burnt and the salmon was still frozen inside and the vegetables were barely cooked. The waitress was very apologetic and explained that the food truck arrived with the frozen meals in the Morning and...More

Our waiter was prompt, friendly and professional. Unfortunately the NY strip steak that we both ordered had a lot of fat and was pretty bland tasting. We were both disappointed with the food.
