“Good food, tight space, loved the piano player”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

So if you are looking for a romantic night out, keep moving, but if you are looking for some quick service, good steaks and a saloon like atmosphere, this is a good place. I think the prices might be a little high for what you get, but it was cooked and seasoned well and delivered hot and in a timely manner, so what can I say. It seems like they've been serving the same menu the same way for 25 years, so they are good at what they do.

If you are looking for creative, keep looking, but if you want some juicy meat, pull on up to the bar. We sat at the bar for this trip, which I almost prefer, but if you want a seat at a table, you better have a reservation.

“Just above average food, not great.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Service was great,fast & courteous. We ordered the trout. It was tasty but saturated in butter & topped with a lot if chopped garlic. "Cooked" veggies were almost raw. Good bread & baked potato.

“CROWDED CATTLE PEN”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Smallish room with big crowds and noisy noisy. Excellent food but pricing is over the top as it is a real tourist trap. When you pay high twenty and thirty to forty-seven dollars a meal there should be some ambience around you instead of 50 people screaming in your ear. Did have some fun with a piano player but no other real western décor. Most shocking was the bill which comes with a pre-added 20% gratuity-you don't choose and there is another blank line below that for an additional tip to add which many people will do not realizing it's already been done before that.

Alison C, Owner at Outlaw Restaurant, responded to this review, 25 August 2014
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Outlaw. We value all feedback from our customers. Just to clarify on a few issues, the 20% gratuity is added to parties of 6 or more only. This is standard restaurant procedure for gratuity, parties of 1 to 5 people choose their own amount of gratuity. Also we use an Aloha POS system which automatically prints the blank line below the 20% gratuity line for additional tip. Other systems add the gratuity under the food and drink category, which would be easy for a customer to add the tip twice, the Aloha system makes the 20% gratuity clearly visible in order for the customer not to repeat the tip. I am glad you enjoyed your food, and I hope you will try the Outlaw again, I am sorry for the crowded restaurant, it is a popular place and gets very busy in the summer season. Thanks again!

“Pricey but worthwhile!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

I had dinner here with the inlaws and it was so so so good. My steak was perfect the wait staff was a little slow to keep our glasses full but that is because they were really busy. There was a 10 minute wait to be seated but that was nothing compared to the other 3 restaurants we checked out first that evening.

“Good but low value”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

My wife and I had dinner at the Outlaw Restaurant and enjoyed our meals fine (filet mignon and scorpion steak). The only issue I took was with the pricing. I feel Texas Roadhouse is about 80-90% as good for ~1/2 the price.
