Myself and my husband ordered steaks and crab legs//steaks were raw and crab legs were tiny and cold. The salad came with no dressing on it. The manager and wait staff ruder then rude. STICK TO OUTBACK. Whoever it is in that kitchen is not able to prepare food.

Just found out that the workers in the store we shop at aren’t getting Thanksgiving off. What happened to “open half day on holidays?”Next time workers go on strike, we’ll be shopping elsewhere. These people are members of the communities your stores serve.
