Everything was overcooked and took a while to get. It was late when we went to the restaurant. I would say around 9:00 p.m. I would have thought the food would taste as good as any Outback. I will not eat there again. It was however the most convenient place from our hotel to eat.

Had the lunch special of ribeye and salad. The sandwich wastasty and just the right size for lunch. The salad was fresh and tasty. The only down side was no refills offered on our drinks.

Been to quite a few Outbacks now and enjoyed the atmosphere in this one too. We were promptly seated, orders taken and drinks on the table by a friendly pleasant waitress who remained attentive during our time spent here. The steaks came just how we like them, perfectly cooked.

To begin with, I am an Outback Steak House fan because of their consistency no matter what part of the country you are in. This one was not disappointing in any way. I have to give it just under an excellent rating but I was very pleased.

I have always liked the food at Outback but was a little too pricy for my budget. They have now opened for lunch and have reasonable menu prices.

Redheaded waitress was less interested in ours & the other tables she was assigned than what time she got off tonight. YES, it was that apparent! Steak was tough; glass was chipped, but not replaced when I pointed it out. The rum punch was excellent...definitely the high point of the meal for me.

Quality & portions of the food are always good here. Our waitress was sweet & as well as helpful but tended to forget requests, but she always made them right when prompted. She was very attentive.

My family of four (children 'tween' ages) came in with friends for a nice evening dinner. We were seated promptly but waited for a significant amount of time for the server to come to 'say hi.' When she did, she commented on all of our friendly hellos, "Finally, a table of nice people." She was laughing so we laughed but... More
