Outback Steak House is considered a middle of the road franchised restaurant and should be able to maintain its standards. We have visited the Germantown Maryland location on July 4th 2016. The sauce plate was bigger than the first blooming onion, the manager provided a second replacement but came in raw as you can tell from the 1st picture. We... More

Don't want to cook tonight. Outback has good steaks and a large menu with a variety of items. The noise level is usually fairly high and the restaurant tends to attract a lot of dinners.

It is just a joy to go here. Coconut shrimp are tasty appetizers. First I want to alert you that the 6 oz. and 9 oz. sirloin special steaks are top quality and great values. I can’t find a baking potato in any of the supermarkets that is as perfect as the ones which the Outback consistently serves. The Caesar... More

Solid if unremarkable food and service. We come here a number of times a year, the kids like the bread, the steaks are decent for the price, and the service is competent. Not for a "special occasion" but it's in the rotation.

Coconut shrimp is a great start. The steaks and burgers are great and the seafood specials are amazing. I just had the mahi-mahi filet and it was perfectly cooked. For an extra $1 get the grilled asparagus – very tasty. For a glass of red wine try the “Little Boomey” Merlot 6 oz. for $4. Or a glass of cold... More

The smell of musk and stale beer hits you as soon as you open the door. In the bar area, the floor was filthy and the carpet looks and smells like it has been there since it opened. The service was poor however after sitting down and realizing how dirty the place was we left. I will never go back... More

This place is is the worst outback we've been to. The service is really bad. We had reservations but we were seated over hour after our reservation. It had a smell to the place and the table we were seated at was sticky. This is not what we are used to for outback. Normally we like outback but we won't... More

We sat in the lounge and there was no wait on a Friday night. I got the 4 the holidays special. It was calm chowder, Caesars salad, smoky bacon prime rib, and the cheesecake. The food I liked the most was the calm chowder and the free bread. The service was slow and we had to ask for basic things... More

We have been coming to Outback for years. Great food neat and clean restaurant friendly atmosphere. Great selection of deserts. And of course their signature Blooming Onions are the best.

This is undoubtedly, the worst Outback Steak House, I have visited for the final time. I wanted to like this restaurant, however, in the past, I have experienced bad service, and food that wasn't cooked properly The final straw was this past week. I visited at around 9 pm, and asked the hostess to seat me. The hostess tried to... More
