I was surprised to hear that anyone could be dissappointed with this place. I went last weekend 10/9/10 for the first time, and I had a wonderful time. I had the grilled salmon and twice baked potato, which was quite tasty. The atmosphere

I experienced outriggers this weekend and it was TERRIBLE! My companion and I entered the restaurant and we were not greeted at all. All we received was a "follow Me". As we followed the manager, we asked could we sit closer to the band,(which was the only bright spot of the evening) the manager said NO! She stated that there were no seat available. Not giving us an option to wait until one became available. As we waited for the waitress, I decided to go back to my car to get my reading glasses , I notice that their were seats available by the band and we asked our waitress to move us and she did. Bad SERVICE!
We ordered the Oyster Rockefeller and the crab cakes. The oysters were pretty good but the cakes were terrible. We had the shrimp bisque and the Gumbo. I sent the gumbo back because it was horrible and received the Shrimp bisque which was as equally horrible. Tasted like cheese----? The salad dressing was watered down. and the main course was just a mess which was the "chef fillet of red snapper" The fish was tough and rubbery. My date decided to send this dish back after taking a nibble. The waitress, Toni complied but the manager (Laurie and John) and cook came storming out to our table, with the dish in hand asking why we sent it back. WHY WE SENT IT BACK? Could not believe my ears. During the heated discussion Mr. John stated "next time remember we could not do that" and my response was "THERE WOULD NOT BE A NEXT TIME!" In summary, A terrible place to visit, Terrible Food, Terrible Service. It is a wonder they are still in business. But the Band was AWESOME!

We LOVE this place!!! We are accustomed to dining downtown and found Outriggers to have downtown feel (excellent live music and spectacular seafood) with the convenience of being in the south suburbs. Give it a try and you will see what I mean!!!

TERRIBLE!!!!!!! ABUSIVE, UNACCEPTABLE, FOOD GROSS!!! Went with best gf to have a nice night out. My gf was served wrong dish as waitress made mistake. Waited 15 more minutes for right dish, Walnut Crusted Bass w/Limon Sauce - EWWWWWWW!! More like deep fried nasty! Came out like Country Fried Steak - GROSS! Totally called it out and was told by waitress we would have to speak to manager. He came over and it was a big to-do. He argued with us and treated us like trash! When I informed him this production and his lack of grace was offensive and unacceptable, demanded her dish be comp'd since it was WRONG and she didn't eat it - he went crazy! Screamed in restaurant and told us to get out. I refused to tolerate such a disgraceful attempt for a dining establishment, so I waited outside and we had to call the police. Tinely's finest showed and were extremely irked that they are called there every weekend because "his food is aweful..." and people complain and he don't bend! I have never, never, never been treated so poorly. After being forced to pay or he could of had us arrested, we did with pleasure, and as a result the police officer felt issuing him with a citation for his abusive and embarassing behavori towards us. So the owner was charged with Disorderly Conduct and it was worth our $26 for the slop plate and trouble. Ah, yes indeed victory rules. Now too-cheap-owner has a court date for treating two beautiful girls like garbage! See you in court jagbag! DONT BOTHER FOLKS! There are SO many better, more contemporary and modern places!!! The staff here is frightened and the owner is a tirant! I give it by the end of the year and Outriggers will be MO MORE!

My husband and I regularly go out to places to eat and then sit at a bar to drink and listen to great music with our friends once a month. We had heard about Outriggers and their great Seafood. !! Well I'm here to tell you to skip this place we were very disappointed . You better make a reservation or you will wait an hour for this bad food fare . We sit down and at 7:00pm the place is packed, the tables are back to back once you're in a chair and someone sits behind you forget it, you're not getting out again. All of the wait staff are in a tizzy because they are literally hustling in tables like cattle get an appetizer ordered, get a drink, get your food done, look at the overpriced desserts and GET OUT!!!
I've had better Filet at a truck stop , it was extremely crowded, the water downed drinks were overpriced along with it's way overpriced SEAFOOD!!!! We never saw the waitress again after the dessert offerings , we never got a second drink, and then the check came. We were very rushed due to the line of people waiting to get in . As the owners kept walking back and forth to see which tables were about to open and burning a hole in your back !! The atmosphere was very dark !!!! We were in and out by 8:15pm. I will never go back there again and will net recommend this restaurant to any of our friends or family . Go to Long John Silvers at least you get a better piece of fish and cheaper!! Our entire bill for 4 adults $180.00 with one drink a piece, no dessert, 2 fish dinners, 1 rib dinner, and one 6 oz Shoe type Filet. Stay away!

Outriggers is not as great and I imagined. I went during the winter and me and my party had to wait in a cold porch area until our table was ready. The prices are quite expensive and the food lacks taste and quality. This is not my #1 pick of seafood restuarants. It looks more like a bar than a restuarant.

I was a bit disappointed with this restaurant after hearing all the buzz.

First of all it is located in a odd place, the end of a strip mall. It is supposed to be a fancier type of seafood restaurant but the location is a throwback.

There is a cheezy little fish pond when you walk in, the waiting area is minimal and there is not a good separation between the dining, waiting and bar area. The food was not as good as I anticipated. It was flavorless and skimpy. And for a party of three, the bill was over $100 and everyone did not have a drink.

Overrated!
