Took out of town family there for a nice quiet dinner. Food was good, however service was lacking. Server brought appetizer but no plates, had to ask for them 3 times and by then the salads/soup had arrived. Did not bring out the bread either, had to ask a manager for that. After you have to go to a manager... More

Family came for a quick dinner and we were treated very well. Sampler appetizer, great bread and get the honey butter. Ribeye, steak enchilada, and oh the Chocolate Down Under. Can not go wrong ...

Had a rib eye cooked perfectly. Dinner salad with tangy tomato dressing was excellent. Always quick service. Used the dine in rewards app and got 50% off my meal. This has become a regular spot for me. Friendly staff. Adult beverages available.

Party of 7 at 5 pm slow time. Steaks overcooked terribly, $4 extra for a blue cheese salad. Did not provide set ups for crab legs. Had to ask 3 times for siverware ( no exageration) to many good steak houses to mess with this chain again. All steaks well done (yuck)

We had a party of 11 after 7 pm. We were seated promptly. We had two servers who took great care of us. When anything was forgotten someone was quick to bring it to us. We noticed a few servers would help with different aspects, so it appears they have great teamwork. The food was delicious as were the drinks.... More

While traveling on business in Independence MO, I stopped here with a colleague. We were looking for good food at a fair price but also quick as we still had a couple hours of work left in our day. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I will definitely stop here again!

My daughter and I met a couple friends here for dinner at 7 pm on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was not very busy and there was plenty of parking from which to choose. We were seated promptly in a booth. Our server was polite and attentive to our needs during our meal. Two small loaves of brown bread were... More

The Restaurant was clean and the Servers were friendly and helpful. The waiting time between placing the order and being served was fairly quick.... The food was tasty....but....this was the first time that I was ever served a Sirloin that had GRISTLE in it....

After church on Sunday or just traveling on I-70, stop at the Outback Steakhouse. . The service was slow seating us but the waitress made up for that. They do carry Coke products and Sweet Tea. Most restaurants carry Pepsi. I had the fish tacos and they were pretty good. My husband had a fish sandwhich. Our waitress was very... More

The blooming onion was great, the potatoes were good. My steak was undercooked, my husbands was overlooked and they were pretty tasteless. We had not been there for years because of a similar experience years ago. Will be a long time before our next visit.
