This Outback at Kempsriver is a well run chain restaurant. Food is good, service good and attentive. It can get crowded on the weekends but is easy to get in through the week. I like their house salads and blooming onions. The 6 ounce sirloin is my go to meal.

The Outback at Kemps River Crossing is exactly what you would expect at any Outback. We were with a pretty large group of neighbors but were seated right away in spite of the large number of people milling around outside. Service was very good and my NY strip was a perfect slab. The shrimp my wife ordered (which were suppose... More

We tried to make other plans but everything else was closed. Outback is a general standby option although they no longer have the tilapia with crawfish. Hubby and I visited with my dad, his wife and my sister and brother. They all had seafood and we ordered steaks. My ribeye was undercooked so I sent it back. I can do... More

Pros: Friendly waitress, perfect al dente veggies, and tender and perfectly cooked filet mignon steaks. Cons: Plain decor, my 6 oz steak looked pretty thin for $23.00--at lunch hour! I would return because the chef is good.

It was crowded - as usual - so we sat in the bar, which is not always wise. This time it worked out as the waiter - Michael - was quite good. I had the chopped steak with potato for a side. It's reasonable and there is no waste. I asked for it a little pink in the middle, but... More

This location has been there a long time, which is not a bad thing, however the food quality is down and the prices are way up! I mean $8.99 for a blooming onion! But they offer pedals for $4.49. Sorry it's not that I am expecting a cheap meal but you would have to spend $40 per person for the... More

Outback used to be one of my favorite restaurants however my previous visit I didn't enjoy my meal. Some friends invited me out for a little dinner celebration recently. The restaurant was in good condition as usual. No complaints about the food (she did get a few things wrong with our meal but it was ok nothing major), drinks or... More

Ordered medium arrived well done. They recooked the steak. Shrimp, chicken pasta. Very good. Steak better the second time but still not medium but was edible. Crystal took it off the bill. Thank you.

We were seated for dinner in a booth, directly behind us was a VERY loud woman, we asked the waitress could we please be seated elsewhere, she came back and said no, even though there were 2 booths near us that were open and available for most of our dinner. It was very disappointing that we could not relocate to... More

Lunch is like kids meal size portions if you want to starve this would be a great place for you. Eat before you come to lunch. 3 people and $51.00 later
