Went there for lunch place wax empty on a Friday lunch time. Service wax ok but we both ordered the prime rib sandwich and it wax horrible, couldn't be any worse, wax so tough nearly impossible to eat, no wonder there weren't many people there. Also, the lady next to us ordered well done and they brought her a pink... More

Chris has waited on us before and did a great job again. Food was hot and fresh too. We enjoyed the afternoon.

My son and I decided to split a ribeye and add an extra salad. Steak was done very nicely and salad quite enjoyable

My wife and I have enjoyed the Outback menu selections and casually friendly atmosphere for many years, and we were very disappointed when the one in our hometown (St Cloud, MN) closed down a few years ago, so we generally visit Outback at least once whenever we're in a city that has one. We decided to treat our friend in... More

For some reason there is always a wait at this location. It can be empty with two people drinking at the bar....and there is still a wait to be seated. I appreciate the communal self service seating - especially if you don't mind dining with strangers. Been here many times - sometimes it's fabulous, sometimes it flat awful.

We've always enjoyed Outback so we decided to go to the one in Tempe while we were there. It was Valentines Day and the restaurant was crowded but we were able to make a reservation so we didn't have to wait very long to be seated. I was thinking about ordering their new crab cakes and asked our waitress if... More

We took family here as part of our Thank You for having us down south for a visit. We all enjoyed our meals: prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes, mac 'n' cheese, salad, sides of asparagus. Portion control was an issue on the prime rib, and the asparagus side was skimpy for the price. Other than that, it was a very... More

I ordered the ribeye steak sandwich, what I got tasted more like table scraps. It had three thinly sliced overcooked dry pieces of some kind of meat that did not taste like ribeye. Although I did not get sick from eating it and I did not feel well afterwards. This is not the first time I've had a bad steak... More
