It's the tried and true formula that has succeeded nationwide for decades, and the Outback works well in Viera too. Service was fast and friendly on the holiday Monday afternoon we visited, but be prepared for a wait at night. The steaks were perfectly cooked, which was surprising considering how new this place is. I believe they brought a bunch of people over from their old Suntree location. Bar was well-staffed and the bartenders were very friendly, writing their names down on a placard so you know who to talk to. The parking lot seems a little small, but there are neighboring businesses where you can park. We will be spending a lot of nights here.
I had the grilled Mahi filet, and it was not fresh. Edges were inedible. Veggies and rice were good. Too expensive overall.
We frequent this restaurant and have never had any type of issue. The staff is wonderful, polite, helpful, always on top of things, and the food is the best in Brevard. The atmosphere is relaxed and should be kept as business casual, but it only happens 90% of the time. The menu may look to be a bit pricey, but not only is the quality impeccable, but it is a meal done right--and it is worth the price! Drink order, entree/ appetizer order, Sake tea, salad with the famous Makoto ginger dressing, appetizers (if ordered), entree cooked right in front you (quite entertaining), and then dessert (if ordered). Pick up a bottle of the ginger dressing either at the restaurant or one of the local supermarkets (Publix or Walmart).
