“Here's the beef”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We know our meal will be good at Outback. The special combinations are very well priced and good quality is consistant. We went to this Outback in a handicap scooter and they were totally accommodating. The whole building was being renovated outside but inside you never knew anything was going on. The staff were all so friendly. While travelling we patronize outbacks and know they will always provide good food and service.
We like restaurants that are consistant in their quality and Outback provides just that excellence.

“For a Chain... Very Good.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We don't get into chain restaurants very much. But leaving a review for this particular Outback was a must. We stopped in because I had to have a steak. The steak was cooked to perfection - charred rare - its an odd request, but the chef pulled it off without mashing the juices out to get the char just right. Beer is cold and the staff is very friendly and fun.

“A particularly good Outback experience”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We like Outbacks as there seem never to be any surprises. The food is good, and healthful if one is careful. The staff handled our walk-on group of twelve with friendly and efficient service. As we were staying at the nearby Hampton Inn, it is but a short walk from the back of the hotel. Across the street, in fact.

“Okay Meal”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

The Outback chain isn't quite what it used to be. The last few locations we've been to haven't been as good as what we remember from the past. The Caesar salad wasn't bad, but the portion was small. The steak was just okay. I don't think it was worth the price. To me, I'd compare this location to the old Ponderosa restaurants (not sure if they even exist anymore in the U.S.). It was a Saturday night and very busy. Too rushed. The entrees arrived just as we had barely finished our salads. We got the feeling that we were being herded through like cattle to free the table up for the next group. It was okay, but if we are ever back in Ontario, we'll try somewhere else.
