I always eat here if I am staying in the area. The steaks are always good and I love their coconut shrimps. It is always busy but is not too noisy thanks to the small booths. The staff are proficient and it is a nice touch that one of the managers came to my table to check that everything was... More

Very welcoming and friendly staff, the problem was the meals. Every thing was going well, until our dinners came. We had just been served our salads when our dinners arrived. We asked the waitperson to allow us to finish our salads before serving our dinners, she agreed. I asked if they were going to be reheated and assured me that... More

...when I got the endless soup and salad. I don't know if this is an actual policy change or if this waitress was just more generous than the last one. So, I will up my previous rating from 3 stars to 4.

My family is way too impatient to wait for seating and service yet we all love the food at Outback so we often order curbside take away. Service is always fast and food, delicious. Never had any problems here with food quality or order accuracy.

Our server was very patient with us, we had spent the day at the nearby hospital. Our brains were on overload, we knew we needed to eat, but we needed to decompress more. The food was wonderful, I had the salmon and my husband had the sirloin. We each had the sweet potatoe, which was cooked just right. We were... More

Bloomin onion version with shrimp and lobster bites on top but so much breading you could never taste lobster. Couple of the shrimp seemed undercooked, Friendly staff but mediocre food, at least what we had. Saw some prime rib being served and it looked very good. Our salad had some lettuce that was over its prime.

They had a one-day special where instead of a $10 bonus card for each $50 in gift cards you bought, they would give away $20. I went there for the offer, and they said they sold out on the "extra" bonus cards shortly after they opened, but could still give me the regular $10 bonus card. I asked why they... More

Our family group had dinner here this week and we were all very pleased with the Filet and the Prime Rib. The accompanying baked potatoes and salads were also very good. Our waitress, Rebecca was outstanding, providing friendly and very efficient service.
