A Saturday dinner visit with a $50 gift certificate that we wanted to use before it got lost. Service was great. The place was nearly packed and kinda noisy. Perhaps that was mostly just the table next to use and at least one lady who was way louder than needed. Enough of that. The food was OK. My rib-eye steak... More

Everything you'd expect from the Outback Steakhouse with easy going staff and a good atmosphere and layout The bar scene always seems to be busy and good for watching any sports that are on The food is good It can be slow when it is busy but the staff are helpful and friendly

I received a gift card from my workplace and decided to treat my husband and I to a late lunch after taking in a movie. Arrived around 3pm and the place was fairly empty so we opted to sit at the bar. We were immediately greeted by the bartender, Alexsis. She was the lone bartender, but she brought our drinks...

We used to love it. Now with the new management (I suppose - it is new) the service is terrible. At first we noticed that a few months ago, but it could be just one bad experience. Today we went again. Today is Monday - half of the tables were empty. We were seated next to the front door. I... More

According to their website, all their food contains and is cooked in dairy products specifically butter. I told them I was allergic and was a small list of dishes that they could try to make without butter. After I ate my food, I could feel that they had still used dairy products due to the pain it caused me.

He sat us down taking the two menu's with him. I had to ask the waitress for menu's and silverware. I asked her if the host was... More

We ordered a carryout dinner from Outback Steakhouse. We ordered online and after I made the order, I called to verify that the order had been received. I was directed to the wrong place at first and when I was transferred I had a long wait, and was finally cut off. I didn't call back. When my husband went to... More

My husband and I have visited this restaurant on several occasions for lunch. Only one time have we found the service to be even acceptable. I don't enjoy giving any establishment an unacceptable review but found that this was necessary since it was the third time for us. The place has many tables and comfortable, quiet booths to enjoy your... More

As a change from a quick-serve family restaurant, the two of us like Outback for its higher level of service and atmosphere, and its extra attention to detail. We were a slightly disappointed this time: perhaps because in the middle of August, regular staff was on vacation>(?) We arrived around 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon, and completed about two hours...

Always happy with the food and service at Outback, and the Germantown location is on a par with the chain's best (or better).
