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).

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
