Lovely dining experience with a short wait after getting online and putting ourselves on the list. Service was amazing thanks to JAY!!!! We could tell he cared from the moment he walked up and showed personal interest along with quick service!

I've always been a fan of Outback. The portion size of fries was not worth four dollars. The salad was fresh. My chicken wings and chicken legs was over cooked but they still taste good. The server was kind and polite. She made sure our food came out hot. The rest of the staff was polite as well.

I took my family here and had the best experience!! Our server Halee was amazingly attentive and personable!! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with her as a waitress. The food was excellent and fresh, and even the manager, Trace, came by to check on us personally to make sure we were enjoying everything! He was so nice and professional. With today’s horrible customer service seemingly everywhere we go, this place really stood out to me and my family!! We will be going back!

I went to Outback this pass Sunday and the service and food was amazing! My waiter, Edward showed excellent customer service. He was very patient, nice, and his communication skills were on point! The manager was also very welcoming and checked in on my table. I was very pleased

I came in last week and my food came out wrong but when I came in last night, I sat at the bar and I told Shea how my last experience was and she said she would make sure this time would be better. She was right, she made sure I was more than satisfied before I left. My drinks were the best I've had in a while and she got me to try the new Sugar steak and it was amazing. I will be back really soon, because This was by far my best experience at this ouback.

My family and I didn't have to wait long for a table which was nice since we just got off a long flight. Our server was quick and attentive, she recommended some options as we weren't sure what we wanted. Food was hot and my steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone was so nice from the moment we walked in the door. This is also daughters new favorite restaurant. Thanks again!

The service and food was excellent. It did suck getting forgotten and waiting an hour ten rather than the 30 minutes it should have been.

Had their Queensland chicken & shrimp pasta with fries. Despite being a steakhouse, pasta was pretty awesome and I liked how their Alfredo sauce and the shrimps were on point. Relatively small portions for the price, but I was full after finishing the pasta nonetheless. Fries were also really good.

Social distancing in place, also our server Russ was awesome. BTW, try the rib twists. Steak seasoned just right. Great meal in a comfortable/safe environment.

Good place, love the bread and steak, anytime something goes wrong they fix it immediately or they don’t charge you. It’s not the money, but it means they take responsibility. I have always enjoyed eating there.

On our most recent vist we stopped in to sit at the bar and have cocktails. The bar was full, but in a matter of 5 minutes there was a table cleared and cleaned. The beverages were great and made by our waitress. She was polite and a hell of a bartender because they were tasty.

My mom and I went here after a doctors appointment. The onion soup was delicious 😋. I loved it. The ribeye was very good but a little bit too much pepper and salt. The asparagus was very chewy to the point where I had to spit it out. Overall I had a great time and would definitely go back! Especially for that onion soup.

Significant other and I treated ourselves to a "date night." Let me just say our server, Clint, was top notch! The food was cooked to perfection, the bartender, Sabrina, knows her mixology, and the other members of staff all looked like they were happy to be at work! This location has the right formula for a successful restaurant!

The restaurant was clean and our waitress was very attentive. Steaks were cooked as requested, sides and appetizers came out hot, the drinks were good and we were waited on within a few minutes of sitting down. We’ll definitely be back again!

Great birthday at Outback. Didn't have my fried shrimp but my wings, sweet potato, and salad was great. The waitress Anija made the lunch fabulous. She immediately greeted us, suggested items.

Our server (initials A.M.)was great. While the food was rather tasty, she made the meal an experience. She seemed happy to be there, instead of just acting like it, an increasingly rare trait. Booth was clean, drinks had a good amount of punch, but not boozy, fast with the non alcoholic refills too.

My man and I just recently came two days ago. They were very organized and structured. Must have your mask on till you are served food. Seated away from others. Our waitress was the sweetest old lady. Both ordered the center cut sirloin- medium rare. It was delicious! Highly recommend the strawberry kiwi margarita! Definitely coming again.

The bloomin onion was hot and crispy, drinks were top notch, and steaks cooked perfectly! The manager even stopped by our table twice to check on us!

Delicious and enjoyable for it's niche! This was my first venture to the "Outback." The booths were spacious, my steak perfectly seasoned and tende, the mashed potatoes buttery clouds of perfection. Our food server was excellent, both attentive and laid-back, generous, and detail oriented. We received a free order of my very first blooming onion. I would definitely go back!

Went on a packed Friday night, hour wait. Nice waitress pointed out a small booth in bar area for us to sit, less than 15min wait! Only snafu was that my steak was really rare instead of the medium rare i ordered and when they cooked it again they only cooked one side so it was kind of burnt in some spots but still very tasty. And gave me another helping of veggies after i ate mine while I waited for my steak to be properly cooked. Waitress was very nice, quick and efficient!

The staff was incredibly helpful and kind. We ordered to go, and our entire meal was there. But two of our meals were so salty that we honestly couldn't eat them. This is one of our favorite restaurants across the country (for a chain). Some of the food was great. Some was absolutely inedible. Kind of sad, because they have nice people working here and a great atmosphere.

Had a terrible experience at red lobster down the road, but it totally blow me away at this outback steakhouse. The service was quick, the waiter was friendly and made lots of jokes. We did not have to wait long for the food ( which i was surprised because the amount of people dining during the super bowl). Overall a great experience. Highly recommended

A very nice dinner on Wednesday night. I chose to sit at the bar and both bartenders were really good and personable! They had some really good dinner options on Wednesday and the drink options were very nice and affordable. The place was not that busy on a Wednesday, which was nice.

This place gets busy but the food is consistently good. I have had to wait for tables on a Wednesday due to the $10 specials they run that day. The blooming onion is amazing and the steaks come well seasoned and cooked exactly to medium rare.

We went on New Years Eve. It was awesome. The food, the atmosphere and the service were about the best I’ve ever seen. They could double the prices and I would still go back. Thanks for a great experience!!!

We were visiting from out of state and stopped in to this location for a relaxing evening , good food, and service. I wasn't let down! The food was delicious and brought to us in a timely manner. We loved our server Halee and appreciate all she did to assure we were taken care of. I would highly recommend this location and Thank you to all there that made us feel like we were back home with friends and for the excellent service provided!

Busy night, but clear & straight forward in getting us in as walk-ins. Quick server contact, accommodated our incoming family cell call that delayed ordering; efficient & willing to handle ONE hiccup with food order. Walked out full, satiated & pleased...see you on boomerang return!!! ;) ;)

First time and really enjoyed it! Beautiful vegetables, pleasant service, and we'll seasoned steak. My only suggestion is that they clean the floors more regularly. They were slippery.

I give these stars to the curbside waitress Zee at this Outback Steakhouse site. She is the sweetness person I have met in the food industry in a long while. It was extremely hot outside so I know walking to my car wasn't the highlight of her day but she was so wonderful. I will return just to have her wait on me. Her attitude could have made the food taste even better.

I have never been disappointed coming here. Service is great, servers are very friendly and food is fantastic. I think I have sent a steak back twice in coming here 50 times or so over the past 10 years (only to get cooked a little bit more - never overcooked). Shrimp scampi dip is an excellent appetizer also if you have not tried that.

The food was good, and the service fast. It seemed a bit like they were pushing you out the door, but I understand that many people are on a time crunch at lunch. I knocked it down a star as my drink stayed empty most of the time I was there, and I was never brought the sweetener I requested.

Always great food and our server Clint has always been very courteous and professional. Always assured that our orders are always correct and that we are always pleased before we leave the restaurant. My family and I will eaten at this outback for several years since its opening.

I only gave 3 stars because of the incredibly long time it took for our food to get to the table but after analyzing the situation I realized that 1 person in particular was the star of the show and deserved 5 stars! DARIUS took care of my giant family party today. We had 16 people and celebrated my son's graduation. The kitchen was incredibly slow and the food was cold, things were completed out of order but DARIUS had the patience of Job. He was never out of character, never complained, never blamed anyone else. He took the HEAT all by himself. No one helped him serve the food, clean the tables, or take the world's most difficult orders from picky eaters. NOT ONE staff person in that restaurant helped him do anything to make our experience better. DARIUS deserves to be a General Manager because anyone else would have quit but not him not DARIUS. I'll go to any restaurant that he runs, that's why we gave him a huge tip. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING DARIUS

We ordered 3 steaks cooked medium-well but only two were cooked as ordered. One was well-done. They were happy to cook another one to order. The server was attentive and very nice. The atmosphere was relaxing. This was our first time at this location but I think it was the best we have eaten at so far!

I recently had dinner with my parents at this Outback and I’ve been to outback’s before so I know what to expect, but the service we received at this one was out of this world. Our servers name was Chelsey and she was the whole package. First of all, she was great at her job, my glass never went empty and she was on top of everything. She went above and beyond that though by being so kind and personable…something that’s hard to come by nowadays. Hands down the best server I’ve ever had. I would 10/10 recommended this specific Outback. P.S. Ask for Chelsey.

I normally wouldn’t eat at an Outback, but I had a gift card and was visiting family in Durham. We had a really cute server. Her name was isis, which I was excited about. Such a unique name. She had great recommendations. The blooming onion really is as delicious as everyone says. I don’t even like onions, but this one will be my only exception. Not sure if I would eat at an Outback in the future, but when I’m back in Durham I will definitely stop in. Hopefully we will get to chat with Isis once more. Thank you for your friendly, knowledgeable service.

I came into town to visit family and they insisted on bringing me to Outback, even though I don’t normally go there. I was really impressed with the delicious food and our server, Isis, was awesome! She was very attentive to the table and made great drink recommendations for me and my sister (we love trying new drinks everywhere we go!). Next time I’m back to visit, we’ll definitely be heading back here! Thanks Isis!

Our server, Isis was the absolute BEST! Kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and made great recommendations for us first-timers. The food came out super fast especially considering how busy they were. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals and the drinks were yummy! The atmosphere was great and we all enjoyed ourselves. Definitely will be coming back.

Last night we drove 30 miles to eat at this particular Outback Steakhouse. For the past 5 years, we have always driven 25 - 45 minutes just to eat at this Outback in Durham as the food is always good and the staff very friendly and helpful!! Last night was no exception. We had Skyler as our waitress and she was extremely helpful and good. She also had a great sense of humor. Everyone in our party really enjoyed the food and our time there. Deborah

Grace was absolutely amazing. Not to knock outback, but she made me feel like I was at more of a 5-star restaurant with her level of service. She was personable and professional. All of our food came out in good time also and tasted amazing. My steak was the perfect medium rare. Waiting on desert as I type this, and I’m confident that will be amazing as well. Thanks, Grace, for making our dinner out actually feel special.

I had a wonderful experience today, at the Durham location. First we had an excellent server named Regina. She was courteous, charming and very attentive. Secondly, my friend left her wallet and an employee named Derrick darted to the parking lot before we made it to our vehicles. He handed her the wallet and ran back inside the restaurant. I had to go inside and share this experience with the manager… It was a good feeling to see that type of integrity. I will definitely return…. Thanks Derrick

In town for training and needed a quick dinner with coworkers. Plenty of parking and plenty of seating indoors and some patio seating as well. Nice friendly staff and clean restaurant. Our group ordered a little bit of everything but the group favorites were really any of the steaks. Shout out to the bartenders as they were super attentive and their customer service was way above par. Group favorites include the steak with ribs combo. Cheers!!

Still has one of the best salads around! The restaurant got pretty packed which isn't my favorite right now so next time I will try a bit earlier to avoid the crowd. I ordered the Queensland Shrimp and it was ok. Used to come with more ingredients but not anymore. Overall, not bad.

We will definitely be coming back and requesting halee as our server! Thanks so much

regulars at this outback location and this was by far the worst tonight. this bread to the left of the photo is what my shrimp came on top of and it taste terrible , the shrimp wasn’t edible and the lettuce on the caesar salad entree was all end pieces which i couldn’t eat as well. The best part of this meal was the bread , i am highly disappointed. when i called to speak to management about the issue the lady that answered the phone kept asking me questions to avoid putting the manager on the phone. Unprofessional and very disappointing! The second time i called i was able to get the manager on the phone and he was very nice and apologetic, offered a refund or remake of the meal. for his sake of being nice and caring i’ll give a three star.
