I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is great, food is excellent & hosts are friendly. I had the Filet served rare, and it was perfect. Everything was on point all night long.

We loved our dinner at Outback. A much bigger and nicer one than those at home (WNY). The service was excellent and food fantastic!

All was good except for the crab cakes- they were mushy and very salty- seemed to come from a can. NY strip steak was very good- lots of seasoning, which I would order without the seasoning next visit. Suggest sticking with steak at The Outback...More

Amazing cheese fries and bread. Wait staff is very friendly and the interior of the restaurant has wonderful lighting and decor. The attached deck for outdoor seating is very comfortable as well. I always go here for family dinners.

Ordered the Petite Filet. Was served a sirloin of shoe leather texture. Our waiter passed along my dissatisfaction to the manager, who offered to remedy the problem by having another "filet" prepared. When it came out it too was a sirloin - albeit a more...More
