“Great flavorful food”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We've always enjoyed our visits here. Every food item we have ordered has been great. Steaks, fish, salads, etc. are wonderful. Restaurant is peaceful & relaxing. If you don't get there before 6PM, you will have to wait for a table.

“Great”

Extremely good and friendly service. Wine and food were very good as we're the cocktails before dinner. Would definitely eat here again when in Longview

“Steaks...it's what's for dinner”
Reviewed 11 April 2013 via mobile

We ate there after a long day sitting with family at the local hospital. We were tired and wanted a quiet diviner. Our waitress understood our situation and was both very helpful and efficient in her service. My wife and I had the combo petite filet and lobster tail. The steak was tender cooked to order (one medium rare and one medium well) and the lobster was tasty although rather small, which also meant it as almost over cooked(tough). Overall it was an "OK" experience although it would have been more enjoyable if we hadn't been tired. Will we go back....put us down as a definite maybe.

“Letting the chain down!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

We have always found Outback consistently reliable until this visit. Admittedly we arrived at 7.15 on a Saturday but as restauranteurs of over 30 years we know that it's no surprise that you get slammed on a weekend and so you have your A team on and make sure there is good supervision. None of this was happening here. We sat at a dirty, uncleared table for 10 mins, then waited 10 more mins to order a drink (we know they are busy so we made it easy and had drinks and food orders ready and simple). 20 mins later still no drinks. Bar staff were swamped but working hard to catch up. Floor staff were just pathetic. A bus person walked past us 5 times, each time he was checking the game on the tv over the bar and not once checking our table. Our waiter was off the floor 95% of the evening and when he did appear he was ineffective or unsure what was going on. People were complaining at the bar and at the table next to us. The food, when it finally arrived was thrown on the plate (appalling presentation), my broccoli was overcooked and my shrimp almost desiccated. The saving grace was the fact that we were starving and that the meat was cooked to perfection. In the absence of our waiter we finally had to go to the bar and order drinks. Part way thru our meal our waiter wandered by and asked if we would like desserts (?!) (As if his program had gone haywire). When we left, we walked by the side entrance and saw 4 of the floor staff standing back of house relaxing and having a good chat. They either need training or replacing! It really was a bad show and we will think twice about visiting Outback anytime soon.
