The service was slow at first but did get better. One person in our party did not get what he ordered but ate it anyway. The bread is delicious and they brought more when we asked. The food is good but pricey.

Our local outback is our weekly outing spot. Chicken on the Barbie and outback specials are good choices but you can't go wrong with the filet or prime rib. Try a Caesar salad or tangy tomato with ranch, we call it "franch". Tasty combo! Also...More

It has been some time since we ate at an Outback, so we gave them a try. They were OK, I still think they are right up the middle, nothing great, but OK. This one just went through some remodeling and has nice seating on...More

Excellent service staff, steaks always prepared well one of the steak places in West Des Moines, some nice seafood options as well. Manager seem a little flustered on our visit, tends to be 30-45 minute wait.

Great filet and trimmings! Service was okay, I think we had a new person that was not very attentive.

A person can usually count on outbacks to be consistent. This one wasn't. Prime rib had a lot of fat. Complained and bill was adjusted. Garden salads were blah. They usually are chilled. Even the wine seemed a little off.
