About Us

Ever since Steve Grantham, Sr., opened the doors to our first Outback Steakhouse in 1993, The J&R Restaurant Group has been driven by one belief: The one constant in everything we do is people.

It’s why everyone who walks through our door is welcomed with a warm smile by our friendly staff as you kick back with an unbeatable, Australian-inspired steakhouse meal in a fun, casual place with prices for everyone.

It’s why we get out and serve our local communities in every way we can.

It’s why we’ll never, not for a single minute, take your choice to break bread with us for granted.
