We hadn't been to Outback Steakhouse in awhile, so we thought that we would visit it. We grabbed a seat at a bar table, there was no waiting. Daniel H. was our server, and he was efficient and attentive and personable. For an appetizer we...More

Poor service: the waiter was very clumsy while attending a few tables. Forgot to deliver the cutlery, it was not attentive. In addition, the food was poorly prepared, the pork ribs was burnt.More

We had not been to Outback Steakhouse for awhile, so we had a taste for a bloomin' onion. Since it was free, as the Florida State Gators won the bowl game, why not? There is plenty of parking around this Outback and the parking lot...More

When an acquaintance from Down Under visited the USA for the first time, he gave Outback a fair go. His meal wasn't bad, but he didn't care for the unauthentic, gimmicky concept. I share his opinion. The missus and I had not visited our neighborhood...More

Visit two or three times a year when in town. Ribeye and filet are a bargain as steakhouses go. Busy but always good service. Traffic heavy at Village Crossing so try to avoid peak traffic hours.
