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

We dined at this location twice in the last 30 days. Since there were quite a few people waiting for tables, the host suggested we take a table in the bar area where it was first come, first served. Great idea except the waitstaff "cleaned" the table with what looked like a wet paper towel. She brushed all food particles... More

This isn't the cheapest place to get a good meal, nor the most expensive, but as far as value for price paid I think you would be hard pressed to find any better. Service is always top notch, and food always perfect. Wife tried the Three Sangria Sampler and really that it was a great deal (she really liked the... More

Had one meal here during a week in the area and it was comfortably the worst dining experience of the week. We were there on a quiet night,we had seen that it was busy other nights so thought it had to be worth a try. The service couldn't really be faulted for speed, but having all the courses served at...

We had one meal at this Outback - a short wait on a Saturday night, but food and service were outstanding. Have eaten at many OSH's primarily because food and service are consistent throughout the chain and this one was no exception.
