I ordered crab cakes and got these mushy pancakes with fake crab meat flattened inside. It was just all very strange to see. Overall ir wasnt a horrible experience but i dont have to go back there.

Let me start by saying the service was good: the waitress was very attentive, just a little slow moving.
We visited at 8pm and they close at 9pm so it wasn't busy at all. It took nearly 20 minutes to get a couple of mixed drinks from the bar. We asked for our side salads to be brought before the entrees and they brought them with the entrees, which took 45 minutes to get. The salads weren't fresh and they were overflowing with dressing. The crispy chicken sandwich was dry as a bone. The Alice springs chicken was also dry and lacked toppings (there were 2 mushrooms and one small piece of bacon under the cheese).

We were surprised that the place was operating, while we were passing by at about 10PM. We knew the place we were in a couple of times, so we decided to visit it again. Unlike some "Outback" places in New York (where we're from), this one stays apart with its professional service, friendly staff, nice food and pleasant atmosphere. For 1.5 years since our last visit here they have just improved. The best steaks, cold beer and new salads, which we did not see last time in their menu. Desserts are on a high level! We'll definitely come again next time while in Washington D.C.

Very good quality, great service, and friendly staff. Outback always delivers great food - this is a convenient stop. You will not be disappointed.

We had been spring cleaning all day and decided to treat ourselves to a bloomin' onion. This time, we opted for the March Special with fries, cheese and steak on top. That was a mistake. The steak was overseasoned and overcooked. The onion became soggy.

For our main entrees we tried to order surf and turf and pork chops. Unfortunately, the pork chops were 86ed. We opted for the Steakhouse quesadilla. My coconut shrimp was also overcooked.

Next time we will just share the original Bloomin' Onion and Steakhouse Quesadilla.
