I've gone to Outback since they opened, yes, other reviewers have stated the ""food servers"" have a high turn over rate, YOU will get a TRAINEE&ALL that ""WAITER LEARNING CURVE"" Most recent was with my family, we all ordered prime rib, the salad fine, bread fine, main course looked great, BUT, here is comes: meat was tough, grainy&chewy, ie, you had to expel it out (too chewy) otherwise you'd choke. That was the expereince of my mom&wife. I on the other hand was use to the rough and tough meat, it didn't connect that I was paying for prime rib, I just dealed with it; the table next to me did complain and the waitress agreed and took it off the tab. Fast foward. I did complained online to OUTBACk, Manager who personally called me&mailed me a $25. certificate. My mom once burned vowed never to return (Old School), My wife&I did, we ordered the same menu, the extra large cut of prime rib. Both of us had the best god damn prime rib, I ever had!!! (waitress was good overall) Until you had an excellent cut of prime rib you totally forget what to expect. Third visit was opposite. Both ordered same large cut, but when we compared the meat, mine was half the size/amt of my wifes; She oredered med rare, it came out medium/well, tough&chewy. I ordered rare and it too was abit grainy&chewy. Inconsistancy in the quality of meat, the salad&bread is straight foward. I hate new waiters in training. Waiter didn't check on us, water&beverages neeed refilling, you have to find them, table not cleared. I just want to give a compliment to a young male waiter who always wore a safari hat and serviced the wall area (behind the kitchen wall) he was the best damn waiter, worked there nearly 4yrs but the last 2yrs he has since moved on. He was friendly, attentive, always checked on our table, quickly filled orders, always brought more bread, always refilled beverages w/out asking. OVERALL: ""FAIR"" PLACE TO EAT
Pros: Variety of meats and pastas entrees, full service bar.
Cons: crowded, long wait lines, dark lighting
