Most of the time I do lunch with girlf riends and they are always closed. But my family goes on weekends and that is usually when I go.

While we try to go to locally owned businesses, Outback has good food. I love their grilled chicken and the sides that come with it, particularly the grilled vegetables. Their salads with the entrees are plentiful, have good dressings and a good way to start your dining. Their hot bread is good as well. I like going back.

We arrived at 7:30 pm, and there were still people waiting to be seated. We waited about 20 minutes before being seated. The waitress was very friendly and took our order. The restaurant gives a mini loaf of bread and butter to eat while waiting for the food to come out. It came out pretty quickly and it was delicious.... More

It is hard to find good prime rib anymore but Outback Steakhouse really knows how to do it right. As someone who prefers their meat rare, I can always find it here, providing it is on the weekend. Baked potatoes are hot and salad has a variety of ingredients, not just a pile of lettuce. Always try to stop while... More

I rarely rate a restaurant as Terrible. I have been to numerous Outback locations countless times, and to this venue dozens of times, though not in the last few months. The place was not overly crowded for a Wednesday dinner. The service was slow. The wrong sides came out. My dining partner's meat was not prepared as ordered. My whipped... More

Went for lunch got there at 1. The hostess seemed to be upset we were making her work. Ordered a salad and Aussie cheese fries. More than 45 minutes and still no food. There are 4 tables in here. Sad that I love Outback to much to walk out. Not sure what is up at this location.

Tyson was a good waiter. The food was good and the place was clean. The only real issue was the burgers were not marked as to who got what doneness and everyone got the wrong food. Otherwise would have been a 5 star visit. A
