Have lived in Bowie all my life and have been going to Outback for years. Will not be going back to this Outback. The service was bad, the food was bad, and the manager could seem to care less about our experience.

One would think, Outback Steakhouse is an Outback Steakhouse ... I guarantee you, the one in Bowie Maryland is different! Everything is done by the book, the owner, Meredith, is involved in the kitchen herself and she won't settle for nothing less than perfection on her food. I have been to many Outback's, globally, and no other Outback matches to... More

l gave this restaurant two stars because the staff is really friendly. The manager has problems and the food is not really that good. On Sunday, I picked up my food from curbside. The waitress gave me a cup of orange juice that had been ordered for my grandson--in a carry out cup without a top. I took it inside... More

Deciding to take advantage of the Free Bloomin Onion promotion we called to place a take out order. We were put on hold for almost 15 minutes, and then they disconnected the call. Calling back and asking for a manager meant another hold, and the manager did not even listen to the complaint. First she wanted the name the order... More

I go here occasionally because I live less than a mile away. The food is always top quality. I enjoy the salmon as much as the beef. Always fresh, well prepared and nicely served. The only problem is the parking. Located at the end of a bustling shopping center, it is difficult to find a convenient parking place. Even on... More

Most are aware of the excellent food at this chain restaurant. What stands out at this location is commitment to customer service. While being family friendly, the atmosphere does not degrade to "Chucky Cheese with steak." The staff and management are primarily concerned with how well you enjoy the food. My wife's steak was under cooked and although she did... More

We were staying in Bowie for the Navy/Hawaii football game and ate at this restaurant on a Friday evening at about 6:00. There were just a few people waiting, so we grabbed the first booth that came open in the bar area. Our waitress was very prompt, was very knowledgeable regarding the menu. She took our drink order promptly and... More

For a franchise, this place is always surprisingly good. The salads come out super cold and fresh, and the sangria's are my favorite!
