“Very Good, Great Service, But we should have sent back a steak.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had a nice time at this Outback on a road trip home. The waiter, Caleb was out of this world fantastic! He provided top-notch service and was extremely friendly. The only issue we had was that my daughter ordered a steak that was supposed to be medium and it came to the table VERY well done. We really should have sent it back, but my daughter did not want to make a fuss. Caleb even encouraged her to return it to the kitchen, but she still would not.

“Consistent quality and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This visit was during the late afternoon before the rush, so the wait staff gave me great attention. The steak was delicious, tender, and cooked precisely to order. With Outback, you always know you will get a good meal for a reasonable price.

“Was hungry, else....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

The service was slow, the music was louder than a State Fair, and the food was barely tolerable. My seared tuna was served on a plate that looked like it'd fought through the war of 1812 on the losing side, and the salad apparently carried the tuna's gear throughout the losing battles - wilted, poorly dressed, and warm. Also - skip the clam chowder. I've had better from a can.

On the upside, they have a parking lot for your car, the lights contained light emitting centers, the menu was printed on nicely folded paper, the tables were not wobbly, and the greeter was spunky. Otherwise, the glass of water was the best part of this terribly presented, poorly served, overly priced meal.

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

I live in the Christiansburg/Blacksburg Area and like most college towns there are a number of restaurants to choose from. Some are hit and miss when it comes to food and service. However Outback has always been consistently good. I have never had a bad meal here. My steaks have always been seasoned and cooked perfect and served hot. The blooming Onion has been and remains a favorite of mine and are always served promptly. The wait staff are very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. This Outback is conveniently located near the New River Valley Mall and several motels. While I have tried other nearby restaurants I have always found my way back to Outback, as I have never been disappointed. It is always a good choice especially for visitors attending events at nearby Virginia Tech.
