Snowday steak

After the first snow day of 2015, my wife and I needed to get out of the house. We were pleasantly surprised there was no wait when we arrived as this location is usually pretty busy. The meal was consistent and good for the expected Outback steak. Tonight they were training new servers and we... read more

Very tasty sirloin and shrimp dinner. Veggies not overcooked. Good service. So-so decor. Go off hours to avoid the crowd.

We stopped in for dinner one evening while shopping. It was strange that booth seating in the bar area was immediate, but seating in the outer sections near the windows was a 15-20 minute wait. Our server was pleasant and brought drinks we ordered right away. The menu has changed and there are a lot of options. Unfortunately, it took... More

My husband wanted the lobster and steak special so we decided to go for Sunday dinner. I used the feature on their website that puts us on the wait list instead of having to sign up upon arrival. We were seated promptly! Great! Then things start to go downhill. Our server greeted up courteously - she was friendly and upbeat.... More

My husband enjoyed his Outbacker Burger. I found my Signature Steak to be a bit dry, but acceptable. The ambiance was pleasant and the service excellent.

The service was great. The food was excellent! We ordered the big Ribeyes they were seasoned well and very tender nice flavor. I had a drink from the bar very good! We will be back...only disappointment it was our anniversary and the server didn't acknowledge that! However, we will go back!!!

My wife and I ate here on a Wednesday evening. We called ahead and told them we were coming, and we waited less than 5 minutes for a table when we arrived. It was about 6:10 when we arrived. The server was very pleasant. She first brought our drinks, and about 5 minutes later, she brought a small loaf of... More

Outback was supporting Special Olympics Howard County MD with one of those nights where a percentage goes to the organization. So we ordered to take home and the food was delicious. Due to special diets, we order plain or gluten free and everyone found something to eat and everyone enjoyed their food. It was hot, tasty and as ordered. I... More

We really like their ahi tuna appetizer. Well now they added a sesame salad with ahi tuna as one meat option. We especially like the salad with the same dressing they offer on the appetizer, they always accommodate us. Great service!
