You cannot back out!!

We were there in January 2016 to celebrate an event. The reception, ambience and the food was really excellent. I ordered a stead/shrimp with broccoli as a side. The broccoli was just fantastic. It had a "secret" seasoning and was cooked to perfection - not too hard and not too soft. That was one... read more

The food is lovely and cooked to how you want it, if it come out and not exactly right, they will take it back and ammend it. The staff are very friendly and they called us a taxi at the end of the meal so we could get back to our hotel. The menu is not vast but there is... More

I had an opportunity to try out my first Outback experience when I was in Washington recently, and I was not at all disappointed! I ordered Victoria's Filet Mignon and Lobster and found it superbly made. The steak, though well-done, was juicy and not like the moisture-ridden conventional steaks I have had previously. The grilled lobster was wonderful with a... More

My wife and I are in Washington DC for training. We selected lunch at Outback #4715 in Arlington, VA. We went today (9-16-15) at about 12 pm. There were only about 5-6 guests in the restaurant. We ordered a hamburger, 2 tacos, and a desert. Our order was taken quickly and bread was offered. The second loaf was 15 min... More

Place is ok for an Outback restaurant. It's the closest Outback to my house, so I'm stuck with it. The guy behind the bar has been there forever, and does not want to be there. Snooty, inattentive and just looks miserable. Unfortunately, we like the bar area where the TVs are, but choose not to sit there when this guy... More

For many seasons, on the road or in the neighborhood, Outback has been a reliable source for flavorful and tender steak. After two similar experiences, I can only conclude it's not true any more. Most recently four of us had steak dinners: two filets and two sirloins. While cooked perfectly to order, all of the steaks were tough, not tender... More
