Went here for lunch recently. Just 2 of us. The food was good, one steak and lobster tail, one crab cakes. The fresh, warm pumpernickel bread is always a favorite to start off, salad was fresh. At lunch time there was plenty of seating. Service was a bit slow, waiting for the check etc.

We planned to visit the Framingham restaurant but it went out of business the previous day. As did the Westborough location. With a gift card in hand we drove to Norwood. The place was pretty empty which should have been our first indication that the business was on the outs. The decor and the booths were nice. Our server was... More

Outback has a very predictable product. We always enjoy the outback special steak. The cheese cake is also very good. Go and enjoy.

I used to love to go to Outback. I'm a meat and potato girl, or at least that's my background. Outback was a place I could count on, even with celiac disease (gluten intolerance). I thought I'd give it another try after a long abstention after being disappointed. I ordered the sirloin, medium rare. It was raw. I sent it... More

We had made reservations a week earlier for a group of 9 people for a birthday celebration. They list the reservation. They did accommodate us but ut took awhile before they had tables cleaned and set up for our group. When dinner was being served almost every one of the group had something mixed up on their orders. They did... More

Food is decent. Same as most other Outbacks. It's usually pretty crowded on weekends. A bit pricey compared with other chains. The service isn't bad and everyone is pretty friendly. The bar setup kinda sucks. Tvs aren't great and usually no sound for games. All in all...not bad not great

It was a lazy Friday night on the outback. There were not much of a crowd, despite being a Friday night. I went with a friend of mine at around 9.15 pm. Few folks were there and it was calm. The waiter was helpful and helped to pick up the dishes. And I liked my meal very much. We had... More

I was on vacation and the location was convenient, right down the street from my hotel. If you like Outback, then you'll like this place. It was clean and the food was as expected. We went on a Wednesday evening and the place was virtually empty, so the food came fast. We enjoyed it.

Thank TheDadofOz
