Outbacks are the same pretty much everywhere and mostly consistent with food and service. This location was no different for our visit. We had the Victoria Filet with asparagus (done al dente as requested) and Twin Lobster Tails. Both meals were very good. Our waiter, Kyle, was personable and helpful.

Living three minutes from this Outback, it provides a quick and handy source for an occasional take-out dinner. But you never know what you're going to get. Could be very good, could be terrible, like our last experience. "Come pick up in 25 minutes" turned out to be 45 minutes before it was ready. Shrimp appetizer was okay, but cold.... More

Me and my mom and dad went to Outback. As a start, the restaurant was very clean. When we are seated, the staff came and she was friendly. We waited and then our food came. The steak was amazing, my bacon cheeseburger with vegetables and mayonnaise was fresh, and I love their mashed potato. Even the fries were tasty. As... More

We went for a late lunch/early dinner today at the Germantown Outback. I remember when this place opened since I lived at the time just down the street. The first week it was easy to get into, ever since in the evenings forget it, the food is not worth a two hour wait. I have not been in the Outback... More

I hadn't been to an Outback for a couple of years but I don't remember everything being so salty. My dining partner and I ordered the regular classic steaks but completely different sides and soups and it was like the primary spice was salt and more salt. That said, the service was very good! Our waitress was attentive and friendly... More

I love the new steak platters especially the one with mushroom sauce. pairing that with a baked potato and salad is a great healthy meal with minimum of calories

Normally you think of franchises as consistent but this Outback was a disappointment, As others state, the decor seems outdated and the restaurant has a crowded and frenetic feel. The menu even seems more limited than the Outbacks we normally visit. We were never offered bread, unusual since I saw other tables with bread. Our meals were OK. Our server... More

We decided to eat at Outback Steakhouse for lunch prior to attending a wedding that was going to be later in the evening. We have outback near where we live in Illinois, so we thought ok, lets go there it's one of our favorites! Boy were we in for a surprise. My wife ordered a steak and her seasoning was... More

We used to live less than a mile from this Outback and would dine there about 6 times per year in the 1990s. Ate there last night for the first time in 4 years and we won't go back. The restaurant's decor, which hasn't changed since it opened twenty years ago hasn't changed, and the food, which used to be... More

Recently, we took our family of 5 to Outback in Germantown, MD. We have a son, 14 years old, and two daughters 12 and 8 years old. We don't usually eat out here because of our tight financial budget, but we figured that we deserved a good steak and bloomin' onion again. Our waiter was very attentive and helped us... More
