We picked this place last minute and chose it for its familiarity. We had a really great meal of fillet and lobster & tapia. It was nice to be able to choose your sides. We each picked different sides and all four of us were extremely pleased with our meal. Service was good. Our friends went back a few nights... More

I love chain restaurants, sorry but I do. I know I'm going to get quality food at a great price. Outback has always been a great experience and never disappoints. The happy hour margarita was great and you don't have to be in the bar to enjoy the special pricing! Our server was very friendly and pointed out their crab... More

My family and I had my moms birthday party dinner here and it was great. The staff was really friendly and they accommodated all of our needs. It wasn't very expensive for all 8 of us. And our waitress was very patient and attentive, we will definitely come back, not just because it is my mother's favorite but because we... More

Initially we were seated under the air con which was freezing so asked to be moved, this was done immediately. Food... More

This was my first time to an outback restaurant. The quality of the steak was the poorest I have ever had. The price they are charging for their steaks are ridiculous for the quality. I have no idea why this restaurant is as popular as it is. They should be ashamed of themselves for what they serve and what they... More

Visited Outback Steakhouse with my family because my granddaughter wanted a steak! Although there was a short wait (place is very popular evidently) it was worth it. Our steaks all had tasty flavor with a sauce somewhat spicy. If you prefer less spice I think you should mention this because it may be too much for some. The quality of... More

For sure this is not a hig end steak house, but you can be sure to get good steaks for your money. I would rank them a little below Longhorn however. What I liked is that it is way less noisy than a Texas Road House.
