While this is not an upscale foo-foo place, you'll be darned hard pressed to find a place where the whole Family can sit, talk, visit, and eat really well without blaring music or staff that intrudes every 2 minutes. The food here is prepared (and told to you on the menu) in a way that brings old-fashioned goodness and Flavor that you won't soon forget. From salad to (don't forget) dessert, you can enjoy your companion(s) and the meal in an old timey way and atmosphere. Not a place to impress your clients, unless they want to see that you know a simple good value, and the occasional tough meat that every resturant gets now and then. Should your meal not be to your liking, TELL the Staff they will do what they can to remedy the problem.(As a long time patron I can say that they WILL make it right for you,from reheating a steak gone cold on your plate to a whole new meal to adjusting the bill) Do be prepared to wait for steaks, but man!, when you get it, what a great meal you will have. The Cowboy is my Favorite and good for People Sacks if you can't eat it all. The sign says "Family" and means it in the True gathering tradition anywhere in the USA. Dress up, or wear your jeans but GO TRY IT, you won't be sorry!
Great place to eat. I've had the Boomerang Shrimp here a number of times and they are cooked perfect. Not over, not under, just exactly done. Very rare to find in the food industry. I would say the second best shrimp dinner I've ever had here. Yes, the steaks are good too, and the bloomin onion of course. Be prepared to wait between about 6 or so and nearly 9 PM. This place is always busy, a testament to its popularity.
This place has a great atmosphere along with great food. I go to outback quite often and have never had horrible service or food!! They are super busy on weekends. I recommend getting there when they first open or calling ahead for seating. They don't take reservations just the "call ahead".
