This could be a lengthy, but I will make it short. Food is always excellent. Can not beat Alice Spring Chicken I would encourage you to use the call ahead if possible. Bar seating is 1st come, 1st serve. If ordering a margarita, be sure you specify if you want on the rocks or frozen. Other wise it comes on... More

If you make a to go order, you better check to make sure your orders right. This is the third time I've gotten home to see they've left out several side orders. Very disappointing.

It's unfortunate that this location has gone down hill. It does look nicer, but it stops there. In my travels I typically stop in here. This was my last visit however. They have one bartender that is overwhelmed. He's just not prepared to make things happen. I literally walked out after waiting 10 minutes without anyone asking if I needed... More

Never had bad service or never had bad food one of our favorite places to go to. Just love the blue berry martinis, they have the best salads, the steak is off the chain!!

Service is always good. Location is convenient just off I-210. Love the bread and butter. Always order the Alice Springs Chicken. Typical Outback prices at the LC location. Bathrooms seem to be a little dirty lately. Hope that is improved. Otherwise, all good at Outback.

Our waiter, Keelan, very attentive. Food orders served correctly. Victoria's filet mignon cannot be beat! No complaints about their salads either.

Great service - our waiter really worked hard to ensure we were satisfied with our order. The Chicken Aussie Tacos were delicious. If you've never had the baked potato soup - this is a must! And, of course, the chilled salads. No complaints from this family. Will definitely visit again next time in Lake Charles.

We chose Outback because it was close to our hotel and we knew the food would be good. We got there at 8:05 pm and was seated immediately. At a dirty table. And waited. And waited. And waited. Finally we flagged down someone and asked who out server was 15 minutes after we got there. She said she did not... More

We received a gift card here for Christmas. We haven't been in awhile so we decided to go for dinner. My steak was so tough it was a chore to chew. My son had the chicken tenders and they were so hard he couldn't bite into them. Our service was barely average From the hostess to the waiter nobody appeared... More
