Went the weekend before Valentine's Day and had no problem getting in. They gave all the women a rose, which was sweet! Ordered a steak dinner and the blooming onion. Have not had that in years, but was as good as I remember. Steaks were cooked perfect, all sides were good and good service.

Outbacks are hit and miss, as are their meals. The food can be really good, but also can be really bad. Their issues seem to be 1- consistently good quality food used, 2- Cooking, which is weird. They can't find good cooks or something. I've had a lot of take out from here and eaten in and one thing is... More

I've eaten at a number of Outback Steakhouse restaurants and most are just okay but I really like this one in particular. Their service is always really good, very friendly. I sometimes bring my elderly parents with me (late 80's) and the staff is always so kind to them. They love eating here. It's a favorite of ours for that... More

This place use to be soooo good. Unfortunately, it has gone down hill. The service has gotten slow, food not as good and they just aren't as friendly as they use to be. We have cut back on coming here lately

I would never recommend this "restaurant". Waitress was slow and not friendly at all, portion of food was poor, we had to wait almost an hour to get our order....stake was ok, shrimp were to salty, and mash potatoes was yak yak.....waste of time and money!!!!!!

We like to come here for the steaks and menu options, something for everyone! The only downside is sometimes the servers are super slow. If you go ask for Martin, he is the best waiter they have

Service was great, but the food was not as good as it used to be. We were disappointed when the food showed up and we seen the portion size and quality. We will pick another steak house next time.

I'm not a huge fan of chains, this place isn't much of an exception. The bar is pretty good, but honestly if I am going to go out to get a nice steak this for sure will not be the place.
