If I have to sum my visit to Outback in one word, LOUD is the word. I could hardly hear my spouse talking. There was music playing, people talking and babies crying. The sounds just seemed to bounce off of one another. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. The service was alright, our waitress didn't seem to want... More

For girlfriends' weekend we had dinner last week - good steaks, coconut shrimp, nice wine, and great service. I would definitely return to this restaurant as the servers were happy people who love their jobs!

I have eaten here 3 times, in the past month or so. First two times I had a wonderful meal, no issues with anything. The last time I went here, they were out of 3 of 4 steaks we ordered, they offered us replacements, but there was definitely an issue that night.

My wife and went here at Christmas time to use a gift card we received as a gift. The location was fairly new at the time. The food was really good and the service was as you would expect for a recently opened restaurant with newer staff. The food was excellent and we did have a few beers on draft.... More

I visited this place for dinner with a friend. The place is nicely decorated and had ample parking place. Seating is good and the place is spacious. However the service was not great. This place claims to offer the best onion rings with a orange dip called "bloomin onion ". We ordered one but it was very oily. Quantity was... More

It was a good experience overall. This location is small so it felt pretty cramped. Recently overhauled menu so it didn't have some of the previous great food selections. Definitely stepped away from the "outback" selections, but they weren't bad. Waiter was friendly and pretty prompt for refills and to help us out. Would return here.

This restaurant was easy to access from the hotel where I was staying. The food was good and the waiter was very good at his job in spite of being relatively new to the restaurant. The waiter was very friendly and checked back frequently to see if we needed anything.

Wife and I ate lunch. She got the steak taco's and I go the half ribeye melt. Both were very tasty and served correctly. Jordan was our server and did a very nice job. He was friendly and attentive. Would eat here again.

It was perfect, I was nervous about ordering on line but it turned out that Texas Roadhouse, where I really wanted get it from, doesn't do on line orders on Hilliard Rome road and was the reason we got outback. Turned out for the best. Everything was just as we ordered it, brought it right to the car. We didn't... More
