This location used to be great -- always good food and service. We've been several times in the past few months - both lunch and dinner - and each time, we've left disappointed. Our steaks come out overcooked, the portion size of the chicken dishes are shrinking but the prices remain high, and the wait staff are frazzled or non-existent... More

I've always enjoyed the consistency of the product of Outback because I knew what I'd be getting; however, things have changed here. Our waitress was pleasant, but slow considering she said they were busy, but our order somehow got messed up. They offered a free bloomin onion that day as a promo, but we were charged. Our order was simple,... More

We avoided the 20 minute wait by finding a table in the bar, but 15 minutes later had to ask the hostess if she could send someone to our table to wait on us.Service always seems slow and disorganized at this chain and we never have these problems at other steakhouses like Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse. The bread showed up... More

When we arrived we were seated promptly. After 10 to 15 minutes we had to ask for a server to put in a drink order. They were very apologetic. We ordered our food and receive some bread. The bread was dry and not warm, the butter was so cold you couldn't spread it. We got one loaf for five people.... More

Enjoyed wonderful meal at the Outback Steakhouse recently and appreciate the honesty of our waitstaffer. In choosing appetizers, one of our party expressed interest in ordering the crab cake appetizer. Waiter kindly suggested another dish because it was tastier and, in his experience, most people didn't care for the crab cakes. The honest advice was ignored and crab cakes were... More

Outback Restaurants were always a safe place to go when you wanted some decent food and did not care to experiment with other places in the area. I had dinner at this one in Ellicott City last might. I ordered the Crabcakes. What a mistake that was! They were balls of breading but no crabmeta to be found! I told... More

This used to be a place we would go when we wanted a nice steak meal but the last few times it hasn't been nearly as good as it used to be. Seems like they've made the portions smaller and food is not as good. Also service has declined a bit. The last 2 times the server forgot to put... More

Typical outback. Great and friendly staff; food was a little off. I had the steak and 1 lb of snow crab legs and legs and butter were not piping hot. The crab meat was tough like it had been reheated several times or had been sitting under a heat lamp.
