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

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!

The only quibble we had was missing remoulade sauce with our extra fried shrimp (until late in our dinner when our server finally returned). You really can't go wrong with their outback special. I appreciate being able to buy a 6 oz. steak that doesn't leave me feeling uncomfortably stuffed. We came between lunch and dinner; line was out the... More

This was the best prime rib dinners I have ever eaten. The service was wonderful, the waitress was very attentive, we had no wait time and never felt ignored. It is not cheap but it was worth every penny. I really can't say enough about how fantastic the meal was. I will definitely be back and this will be one... More

This is exactly what one might expect of this franchise. Good food, varied menu, reasonable price and friendly service. We visited the location in Ellicott City on a Tuesday evening around 19:00 and the restaurant was pretty full, but they had no problem to accommodate the five of us in a convenient table. The restaurant was a little bit noisy... More
