You are looking forward to a great steak dinner & here is what happens: #1. Wedge salad served on very hot plate #2. Steak overdone & served on cold plate. #3. Our server, Jake, never came back to check on us. The next time our server returned was to deliver the check. Outback should be better that this.

This is my first time in their new location and have to say I love the improved seating arrangements. I had the Chicken on the Barbie, asked for it to be grilled and not wood-fired as I don't like that taste. No problem, it was grilled! However, they have now cut down on the portion sizes, but not the price.... More

First, we did call ahead to limit our wait time and asked for interior seating. Upon arrival, we were told five minutes. After 20 minutes, we checked again and were told we could be seated outside. We explained we had elderly guests with us, and outdoor seating would be uncomfortable for them. We waited some more, probably another 15 minutes... More

Went for lunch today and the food was just plain ok, nothing out of the extarordinary, but what really got me upset was how slipppery and greasy the floors were in this restaurant. I mentioned the dirty, greasy floors to our waiter who to my surprise told me they hear this complaint all the time. We won't be back!

This was a good place to get a basic meal while traveling through town--not disappointed--only downside was cost--but the wait staff was attentive and the food was decent

I've had a wide range of experience with the Gainesville Outback. Most of my bad experiences came when they were in the old location, next to Walmart. My father, brother, and I visited recently at the new location right beside Archer Road. Overall it was a good experience, the food was good, service was fair (a manager had to refill... More

What a delightful time with friends, sharing memories, updates and good food. Our server, Chelsea, was attentive, knew the menu, offered suggestions and took care of our dining needs. We will continue to visit this Outback as the prices are reasonable.

Our experience here does not reflect the experiences we have had at other Outbacks. We ordered drinks. Our bloody marys tasted fine. It was the presentation that was poured. Three olives and a lime slice would just thrown in the mason jar. We ordered the triple appetizer. The blooming onion petals were burnt to a crisp. My wife ordered a... More

Came here because we had a gift card for it. Definitely the worst outback I've ever eaten at. I think they need new cooks. Had the sampler appetizer to start. Onion pedals over cooked. Mac and cheese bits way to cheesy couldn't even take the macaroni. Chz fries were good. For dinner we both orders a steak I had prime... More

My son and I stopped in for lunch this weekend and we had such a great server. Additionally, our food was cooked just as we requested. If I lived closer I would visit more often.
