I really believe the title speaks for itself, but I have to say a bit. I started off being greeted by a hostess that didn't seat me. Not did she give me a menu or flatware. I got to my table and greeted by my server who plopped down in the seat across from as we were friends or something.... More

for a Sunday evening before a major holiday (Memorial Day) we were pleasantly surprised with the speed of seating/service. Started with the House Red - very pleasant, and my husband a Gin Martini, straight up; I did not taste his drink, but he indicated it was 'watery' -- I worked as a bartender for years, and found that 'clear' beverages...

We ate here for dinner the night we flew into New Bern. We instantly felt welcomed. Our waitress made us a batch of fresh sweet tea (something you don't get here in CO) and even offered some Togo back to our hotel room. Food was delicious as always!

We went to The Outback with another couple and the restaurant was not very busy. Our waitresses was outstanding and kept us in top shape throughout our visit however the same cannot be said for the kitchen. Myself and another member of our party ordered the prime rib, one medium and the other medium rare but both came out well... More

I returned to Outback after about a 6 month gap, to enjoy a steak dinner with my wife. The wait was short. The restaurant interior was very clean and organized. And the staff was very friendly and attentive. I did notice the prices had increased and the portions were noticeably smaller, but I'm seeing that more and more in this... More

If you know Outback then this is a good one. Nice interior, friendly staff and well-prepared food. The only drawback was that we like to walk (and drink) when we eat out, and this one is a little out of town.

Very poor service. Restaurant not that busy. Food was not prepared to order. Server disappeared so couldn't send food back. Only when she brought the check we told her how dissatisfied we were. No compensation was made for uneaten food. Even the water tasted like soap. No plans to return.

We did carry-out, walking over from the hotel next door. I had a ribeye, sweet potato and Caesar salad. The ribeye was perfectly cooked and, amazingly, still warm when we got back to the room. Potato, how do you ruin a potato, was soft and tasty with the cinnamon butter that came with. I wish I had ordered anchovies for... More

I had salmon, one friend port, another tuna, and then the last a steak. We all voted top shelf. Our server, Haley, was wonderful. Very courteous, pleasant, and prompt. A valuable asset to Outback. The only issue is when I went to pay they did not take the outback's idine Rewards card. Was a bit of an embarrassment as I... More

Ryan was our server. He was amazing! Despite my salmon being overcooked, he handled everything extremely well. The recook was perfect. He was very friendly, exceeding the expectations of what most server do or care to do! We live in Greenville NC and Charleston SC. When we head that way again, RYAN will b our first and only choice!
