Nice for just a quick unplanned dinner out. Does have consistently good lobster, of all things in a steak house. Also love the salad.

Outback is one of the small number of chain restaurants where I will routinely dine as they are very consistent in terms of quality. The La Plata location was no exception as I enjoyed great service and a really good steak.

Had a horrible experience down the street at Texas Steakhouse, so I came here instead... Quick service, but the place was dirty. Understandably, I got to the place after the dinner rush, but several tables sat uncleaned for the hour I was there. Waitstaff should NEVER go to the kitchen empty handed - at least pick up some dirty plates!... More

My husband and I went to Outback last Sunday around 6:15p. I was surprised there were so many open tables, now I can see why. Outback's are usually known for crowds and wait times any day of the week. Our greeter seated us and it took a little while for our server to appear. Only half of the restaurant was... More

We stopped at the Outback Steakhouse on our way to a family wedding. There were about a dozen appetizer plates on the table. Every single one of them was crusty and greasy. We ordered our drinks and asked for clean plates. The drinks came, and the outsides of the glasses were crusty and greasy also. We asked to speak to... More

When this Outback first opened, we visited often as the food service and quality was very good. I always order the filet mignon and it was always delicious. Unfortunately as the years have gone by the quality has gone down quite a bit. We visited 2 months in a row and both times the servers were slow and we were... More

We were on our way home from a movie in Waldorf and decided we didn't want to cook. Outback was on the way and is usually a reliable option. We were seated immediately which is always a plus and the service was very good. Unfortunately, the food was NOT up to normal Outback standards, in particular the steaks which is... More

I usually order the lamb, w/baked potato, and salad. Normally it is cooked to perfection. There have been times (few) when I had to send the lamb back, too much gristle. Otherwise everything is very good, for a chain restaurant.

Had no trouble getting a table for a party of 15. Management was very accomodating. All food and pricing was expected as it is a chain restaurant. Even though we were a large party with multiple checks, the wait staff was very attentive.
