The food and the waitress were excellent! When we arrived, hostess wanted to put us in a booth. As we were 5 large men, I asked for the table. She said no, it was for eight. After we were seated and ordered, she sat 5 small people at the table. The angered me with no recourse. Sorry outback, you failed.

We stayed 1 nite in Andover and went here for dinner. I've eaten in Outbacks a few times over the years, and expected a decent but not great meal. What a surprise! The steak was superb! The sides were good as well, especially the bloomin' onion. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

A group (7) of us made reservations for a Friday night for dinner. The service was good and there is a large menu. The prime rib was not real large, but tasty. A couple of us ordered the salmon, a little dry. The salads are always very fresh. For dessert we ordered 2 samplers for the 7 of us. Very... More

I was a very happy patron when I experienced their excellent service and food. They were very prompt with servicing us, and the food was fresh and delicious.

We stopped in for dinner, first issue was the lobby floor, so sticky my shoe almost came off. Should have warned us to rethink our dinner plans but we didn't. Seated immediately, hardly anyone there, granted it was a weeknight but it was 6:30. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. One drink was brought to the table...where are the other 3?... More

My family went to this restaurant today and was very disappointed. The restaurant was nearly empty(1pm) and the service was still extremely slow. To make matters worse, the steaks were very dry and 0ne person had to request the missing item from her meal. Because of the poor service and poor quality, we will not be patronizing the Outback Restaurant... More

Went here for dinner Wednesday night. Seated after a short wait and was greeted right away. Ordered drinks and an app, got drinks right away and app was along soon after. Noticed place was pretty quiet but that could have been a slow night. Figured with so few customers, our order would be quick. Not the case. Food eventually arrived... More

Staff were a little rushed on a Friday night, but friendly. Service was generally good with accommodation for a few small menu change preferences.

We recently had a wonderful dinner at Outback Steakhouse in Methuen. There were 8 of us, and we did have a reservation. Everything was great from the minute we arrived there … easy parking, warm welcome when we stepped inside, nice round table, friendly server (Jenny L), and of course awesome food and drink! Beers (Sam, Blue Moon) were in... More
