What can I say since their overall years back the Outback just gets it right. The food is amazing, the drinks are incredible and if you make it to dessert, omg, delicious!! My personal favorite drink right now is an old fashion root beer cocktail. Dangerously good. Food wise I tend to stick with the steaks and they are flavorful... More

This Outback has the standard, tremendous (and sometimes bad for your belt line ) menu that I've always enjoyed: with an addition of GREAT Service! The service staff seated us quickly (and we were a table of 5, so sometimes hard for them to get us quick seating)- the wait staff had several VETERANS, which I appreciate employing the nations...

Good meal. Standard chain restaurant fare. Bread comes before your meal. Restaurant is very busy at peak times, expect to wait.

The staff always seems to be in a good mood here, it must be the wonderful work environment and the team spirit. I always get the blooming onion and the seared tuna ahi to start my dinning experience. It is always clean and so are the bathrooms, the staff is nice and up kept as are their uniforms, the hostesses... More

My wife and I were in the mood for some beef and we hadn't eaten at the Outback in quite a while. I booked a reservation online and they took us to the table right on time. The snacks offered during the short wait were great and definitely made the wait more enjoyable. The entrees were really outstanding and came... More

My husband and I went to dinner for their steak and shrimp and my meal was so bad I couldn't eat it. My husband and I ordered the exact same thing, sirloin and shrimp. My husbands came out perfect, but mine, I have no words to describe what it was, but it wasn't sirloin. Truly, even the waitress admitted that... More

This place should be SHUT DOWN! until an inspection is complete. Do NOT eat here. Summary: Unnecessary wait, Hair in Food, Watered Down soda, and Overcooked Steaks, Burnt Blooming Onion, and Dangerously overheated plates. Detailed: After driving more than 5+ hours to Vermont, my husband couldn't wait to eat a nice manly sized dinner. He chose Outback Steakhouse. When we... More

Food was good but service was terrible. Went out for an early, (5:30ish and not overly busy) dinner with wife and her 91 grandmother. From the start, service was slow. Not wanting to wait any longer, we ordered our drinks, appetizer and meals all at once. Drinks came out first followed by bread and blooming onion. Initially only two of... More
