The Outback was within walking distance of our Marriott property hotel so after driving 6 hours we were happy to get out of the car. The food was predictably good. Service was great.

Obviously you take a risk when you order seafood at a steakhouse. But, even so, having done just that at other Outbacks, we were very disappointed in our meals there recently. The Ahi a Tuna appetizer was bland & the texture mushy and unappetizing. The stuffed crab topped talapia was so over seasoned with Cajun spices as to be almost... More

Outback, in general and at this property, can't keep food quality consistent. One night we had a ribeye steak, and it was juicy and tasty. Two nights later, the exact same steak was a let down.

I have given Outback several tries at several different locations and my experience with the food is always the same: too much of their house seasoning on everything! My salad was way too salty because of the seasoning. My steak had just a tab more than I'd like, but it was also overdone. I asked for medium and it was... More

Service and food was very good. They stayed open a little later because of the Fiesta Bowl and it was New Years Eve.

So we sat at the bar and Shelly is a superstar. She was attentive without being obtrusive. Great personality. The recommendations she made were spot on and she is truly an asset to the restaurant. Her service is more like an upscale steakhouse than an Outback. The steak was delicious and the prices were more than fair for the quality... More

Recently we have not done well at this chain. However, this had reaffirmed my confidence. Food was well prepared and we had a delightful server. Tricky to get to if you're going South on I17 but worth the U turn.
