Arrived on a Friday night about 530 - not busy at all. Was seated, handed menus and told someone would be with us. Servers were present all around us, waiting on previous customers. 10 mins later - nadda. 5 Mins later, a family of four was seated next to us, given menus. Still no one at our table. Another 5...

Was here for lunch. We were seated right away, and the waitress came over to us quickly as well. We had the burger, a steak salad and the blooming onion, all cooked just right. Will return when visiting the area! Location is great and easy off the highway.

We haven't been here for a couple of years and thought we'd give it a try. We enjoy eating at the bar wherever we go so this visit was the same. We both orders prime rib, one med.rare, the other med. Both cooked as ordered. From here we went downhill. Meat was flavorless. The side of sauté mushrooms tasted as... More

We don't usually eat at chains but had not been to an Outback in a very long time and decided to try this location. Easy off/on southbound route 95. Inside was pleasant and well kept. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Two different size orders of Prime Rib were of a good size and cooked to our requests. The... More

The last couple of times that I have eaten at Outback Steakhouse I have not been impressed. Place was not busy, 3 tables of people including my table. Had to wait 25 minutes for waitress to take our drink order. My steak was dry, not much on taste. Once we got our food the waitress seemed more attentive. Probably won't... More

We tried takeout for the first time from Outback. What a great dinner we had. I ordered online, 2 days before pick up, yes you can do that. Ordering on line was very easy the site walks you thru each item and each selection down to salad dressing and extra BBQ sauce. They even offer you free bread and butter,... More

The customer service at this restaurant is outstanding. Had an issue with something and the manager came right over to resolve the situation. We go here frequently, rarely ever have a problem and the waitstaff is excellent.

Above our expectations in both service and food quality. We both had the Victoria's filet with bearnase (sp?) sauce on the side, loaded potato and caesar salads. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Our servers were Brandi and Lucy - ask for either with confidence.
