Went here with friends for dinner and had a great time and meal. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The ribeye, which is my favorite cut, was juicy and done to my liking; a succulent medium-rare. Always get the Aussie Cheese Fries while here. Can never go wrong. All the food is hot when it gets to you. Can get a... More

One evening we have a great meal with excellent service, good food with steaks cooked to perfection! Thinking the same thing will occur the next visit to the Outback - nope, does not happen! This past weekend the steaks were overcooked, salads were literally missing dressing - the service was fantastic. We did send our steaks back and the manager... More

The ambiance is typical Outback Steakhouse - lots of dark wood and dim lighting (unfortunately the light at the tables is positioned so it hits directly in the eyes of many female and smaller male diners). The service is friendly and is pretty good, with a few notable exceptions. For example my steak was served extremely rare even though I... More

Stopped with some friends for dinner, service & food was good. It's located in a strip mall and we had to park on the other end of the lot. Over all a nice place

Outback Steak House is considered a middle of the road franchised restaurant and should be able to maintain its standards. We have visited the Germantown Maryland location on July 4th 2016. The sauce plate was bigger than the first blooming onion, the manager provided a second replacement but came in raw as you can tell from the 1st picture. We... More

Don't want to cook tonight. Outback has good steaks and a large menu with a variety of items. The noise level is usually fairly high and the restaurant tends to attract a lot of dinners.

It is just a joy to go here. Coconut shrimp are tasty appetizers. First I want to alert you that the 6 oz. and 9 oz. sirloin special steaks are top quality and great values. I can’t find a baking potato in any of the supermarkets that is as perfect as the ones which the Outback consistently serves. The Caesar... More

Solid if unremarkable food and service. We come here a number of times a year, the kids like the bread, the steaks are decent for the price, and the service is competent. Not for a "special occasion" but it's in the rotation.

Thank Tom M
