Love to visit for the bread and atmosphere. They make great blooming onion appetizers. I love the steak salad because of the flavor and textures involved. They have a good selection of alcohol and nonalcoholic drinks. This is a friendly and clean site to visit.

We had a good experience, even though our steaks were not initially cooked to order. They did make it right and that is all you can ask for.

We had a quick dinner here one night. I hadn't eaten at an Outback in years. Waitress was great. We were seated quickly and served quickly. Not too loud and we could have a conversation. Food was good too. :)

over the last few years the cut of meat they serve is the worst in town, always tough as shoe leather until you send it back, then you get a better cut of meat....

Celebrating graduation for a family member. Thought food was a little to costly and not as good as it should have been.
