We stopped for lunch while passing thru the area. My husband ordered a steak and he enjoyed it. I ordered a Prime Rib dip sandwich with mashed potatoes. Prime rib was definitely cooked too long (it was very tough). They forgot to bring my dipping sauce ;-( I can't believe they actually serve instant mashed potatoes but they did and... More

After a 10min wait, we were seated and our waitress Lauren was top notch!! Very friendly and there for our every need. We ordered steaks and... More

Outback Steakhouse serves good steaks and sides. Wait times vary depending on times and dates. Fairly large dining area and smaller bar area.

We visited this restaurant because we had a gift card. Normally we are not close enough to dine there on a regular basis however we will return even though it is a 30 mile drive for us. It truly was one of the best dinners we had in a very long time. The service was wonderful and the staff very... More

I took my wife here for lunch on a Sunday. We didn't have any wait for a table. Our server was quick to our table and he did a real nice job of taking care of us the whole time. The steak & crab cake special my wife ordered was delicious & there was nice chunks of crab meat. I... More

We arrived around 7:15 PM. The blooming onion was excellent as usual I had my heart set on the prime rib, they were out of prime rib. I ordered a full rack of baby back ribs, which were not tender, I did not enjoy the texture. My husband wanted a steak, the server suggested a bone in rib eye, which... More

In town on business ... took a business associate and his wife to dinner at Outback. Our waiter was upfront and admitted he was normally the bartender, but was trying to help out. He and one of the normal waitresses took great care of us. The three of us ordered a combination of steak, salads, and chicken. All were prepared... More
