Hats off to Outback Steakhouse

I have been less than charitable to Outback on these pages, and want to recant a little.....
No they aren't Morton's or Capital Grille...neither do they pretend to be anything other than a casual steakhouse with okay food, reasonably priced. Last Sat. night my family's home was nearly demolished by a "microburst" which sent a 4 foot pine tree through the upstairs, breaking pipes and flooding the downstairs. By 9 that night, we had made our way to a motel that was adjacent to the local Outback. We went in bedraggled, wet, and unkempt, and I asked for the manager. All I asked is that we not wait an hour for a table.We got the next available. We ordered modestly...hamburgers, vegetables, pasta, and my son got a steak. We were floored when the manager comped the ticket, with a notation: "hope that your luck turns better" Never expected that. Thank you Outback for compassion and understanding. You have earned a new fan in Tallahassee.
