Outback is a family favorite. We always get great service here and the food is good. They also deal with food allergies well and usually get our steaks cooked to order. There can be a big wait on the weekends, so call ahead seating is almost always a good plan.

My sweet potato was watery on the inside (guessing due to whatever process they use to cook it). It was so bad that I only ate half of it and decided it just didn't taste good enough to finish. My steak was tough: Not good. I paid extra for the garlic butter which consisted of an entire clove placed on... More

This Outback location has issues with timing. We ate on a Friday night, after a 30 minute wait. We didn't use call-ahead seating, but noticed the folks who did were told they'd have to wait too! I would never wait to eat here again. We received our beverages almost immediately, but the rest of the meal came sporadically. The waitress... More

My wife and I go to the inverter Grove heights location every 2 weeks. I use the online reservation every time. We decided to go the night before Valentine's day. We didn't get seated any faster by reserving. Actually the host was telling people 15 minutes and it took longer to get seated with a reservation. We waited for 13... More

Walked here from the Micro stay hotel. Place was packed but the electric alert thing worked in our hotel room. Food was pretty standard for outback. We will return to outback, as we have had no bad meals there. Their brown bread pre-meal is fantastic. Lots of easy parking here

A great place to go to eat. Food is always fantastic. The service is always stellar. They just updated the interior and the place is warm and comforting.

We typically avoid chain restaurants but my husband decided he wanted Outback for his birthday. STRAWBERRY PEACH SANGRIA - excellent, could drink this one all night Puréed strawberries and peaches mixed with Malibu® Pineapple Rum, Sutter Home® White Zinfandel, pineapple juice and garnished with fresh sliced strawberries. SEARED PEPPERED AHI - very good Sashimi-style Tuna seared rare and placed atop... More

Visited Outback for a birthday. Thursday night seemed like a good choice. Lots of options, good apps, great warm bread. Server Jeremiah started slow but rallied in the end. Actually sang Happy Birthday so hurray! Filet Minion was ok, food was a little cold. Service was slow. Overall.. A 3. It's a hot/cold restaurant. Needs to be consistent.

Servers spoke too fast to understand specials. Servers tried to rush my order before I had time to read menu, a total disorienting experience. The little loaf of bread was dry crusty but not warm inside. The onion soup tasted quite good except for giant slab of bread costed with melted cheese which distracted from flavor. The chicken quesadilla was... More
