Our food was ok. I thought the steak was a bit too spicy but I think that is their style. My real complaint was with the server. She was horrible. They were by no means busy and we didn't see her again after she gave us our meal. The table across from us had a very attentive waitress and we... More

We visited here at approximately 7:30 on a Saturday evening and only had a short 15 minute wait at the bar before we were seated. Mine wife had a dinner salad and my daughter had a small fillet that was pretty small and a little over cooked but she was hungry and decided not to send it back. I had... More

I asked for steak sauce - was told all they have is A1. Really? At a steak house? Strike 1. I ordered a burger and fries. Fries were limp and tasteless. Strike 2. I also ordered their house salad.

We had a very nice dinner here while staying at the Holiday Inn Express that is next door. We have come to expect good quality and value from Outback Steakhouses and this one did not disappoint.

Had a late meal, around 8:45 PM. They close at 9:30. Service was OK, but was a bit more interested in doing all the tidying up that would allow a quick exit. The food, though was well prepared, hot and tasted right. I'd esat there again.

Great restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Conveniently located in a nice area just off Interstate 99. Friendly staff, very good service.

This is a typical Outback. Drinks were very good. My food order was good. However, the best thing was when my friend mentioned to the waiter that the meal was not what was expected, he took it upon himself to tell the manager and she made it right. That kind of service doesn't happen very often.

Erin and Paul were very attentive despite the number of people waiting for tables - one would expect a lot more stress but they treated everyone like they were special. Thank you.

My wife and I generally do not eat at national chains, but made a exception because of its location to where we were staying. Everything was excellent from the bartender, waitress, drink, and food.
