Our family hadn't been to an Outback in years as the one in our hometown always seemed to drop the ball. We were in town for a sporting event with our kids and I had been given a gift certificate at work, so we thought we'd try it again.
We arrived at 5:40 PM on a Friday and were greeted by a courteous young lady who showed us to our seat. The restaurant was steadily having people come inside and it wasn't long before there were people waiting for tables. It's a busy place, so I figured it would be good.
Our waiter Ryan T. was prompt and attentive. He took our drink order and recommended appetizers. My wife and I also ordered adult drinks, but his suggestions changed our minds for a more affordable and better tasting alternative. He never let our water and soda glasses get empty. He came back and took our orders and assured us what we were ordering were great choices. He was prompt with the appetizer, which was the Blooming Onion. It was great! Later, as he was passing by Ryan let us know the food was coming soon, but we thought the timing was fine. He and another waiter brought us our meals at the perfect time.
The full rack of ribs I ordered were tender and flavorful. I really enjoyed them. My wife ordered a small steak and it was cooked perfectly, which is a rarity as my wife seems to send her steak back at most places 7 out of 8 times. Great job! Our three young boys ordered cheeseburgers and fries and ate every bite. The garlic masked potatoes were warm and delicious.
Ryan recommended some great desserts. My wife tried the Carrot Cake. She said it was moist and delicious. The boys and I ordered four mini-milkshakes. They hit the spot and were pretty awesome. I was so full I just wanted a taste, so the "mini" part of it worked out fine for me.
The check came quickly and we were out of there in a little over an hour. As we walked out we saw there were a good number of people waiting for a table. Always a good sign that the restaurant is doing a great job. There were 2-3 groups of kids there in their prom attire. A good choice for them, obviously. It was a great visit with superb service and friendly, attentive staff. If I am in the area again I will consider going back for sure.
