Outback at 3215 SW College Road, Ocala, Fl (exit 350 off of I-75) is to be avoided. Why? Fathers Day and it was crowded. Fortunately, a booth was open near the bar and we were seated. Maybe our server was overwhelmed -- for -- too many things went wrong fast.
Drinks okay, bread and butter okay and we use a coupon for a Bloomin’ Onion. Now we order; my wife asks for a “bowl” not “cup” of soup and asks that it be topped off. Unreasonable? The waitress agreed to the request, but when served the soup was half empty/full. The Chicken Tortilla Soup is to die for! We place our order and wait for the soup to return. That’s 1. My wife orders the Moonshine BBQ Ribs with vegetables and I order the Double Moonshine Burger with Garlic Mashed Potatoes extra mayo. Order comes and first thing, no mayo.
That’s 2. Then I notice the burger is not the Double Moonshine Burger. Instead, they have given me the Aged Cheddar Bacon Burger. That’s 3. My wife’s order is good. I wait for the replacement burger and when brought notice no Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
That’s 4. The Double Moonshine Burger was okay, but missing the moonshine flavor. My wife made the same claim of missing moonshine flavor for her Moonshine BBQ Ribs -- no flavor! That’s 5. The Garlic Mashed Potatoes arrive and are good. We ask for a take out container for our left-overs and watch our waitress disappear, only to return to the newly seated patrons behind us and wait on their order request, with no box in hand. That’s 6. Presented with the box we have the bill ready and the plates stacked. She takes the plates, but not the bill. That’s 7.
The Inverness Outback manager pops over because you are there. That doesn’t happen here. Not even with these problems does it warrant the attention of this manager. As I mentioned to my wife before, I don’t like coming here because nothing goes right. No Rules Never Right.
