We ate here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after church. The food took forever - management even brought out a coupon for a free appetizer it was taking so long. (This is no longer good because the restaurant closed.) The food was OK, but...More

We've visited this establishment 3 times and after the 3rd, we're out. Sub par with any other Outback we have visited. The service is poor and the food was cold and overcooked. Thankfully, there are other Outbacks within 20 miles.

We did call ahead seating on Valentine's Day, and were seated within 10-15 minutes of arrival. The manager came out to tell us that our food was going to be next out. Apparently our server had told him it was taking too long - we...More

Sat in the bar area/ booth seating. No one even acknowledged us for 20 minutes. Meal came out with appetizer, steaks over cooked, blooming onion soggy, beer on tap flat. Used to love this location. So many new faces. Not sure I'll return😩More

We try to drop in here every year on our way to Gatlinburg and it has not disappointed yet. This is a good Outback, with good service, good food and atmosphere that is 'at' or 'above' expectations.

I eat at this location about every month with mixed results. My last visit was the worst because everything was burnt except for my medium steak that was cooked rare. Their new hash brown was burnt black (i kid you not it was BLACK). The...More

We tried the Wednesday night sirloin steak special. It was average, a bit strings, and a tad overcooked. Amber did a terrific job waiting on us. The drinks and dessert were much better than the main meal. Acceprable; however, nothing exceptional.
