Outback Steakhouse is debuting its newest restaurant location in Laurel, Maryland Wednesday, Jan. 21.

A portion of the restaurant's opening day sales will benefit Childhood Cancer Research in The Division of Pediatric Oncology at The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. The new restaurant will be the first in the area to feature the Modern Australia design inside and out.

To mark the official grand opening, the Laurel Outback restaurant is inviting local area residents to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Baltimore Washington Corridor Chamber of Commerce at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 21.

The new restaurant will replace the previous Laurel location on Sweitzer Lane and will feature a "Modern Australia" design with decor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography, and leisure of modern day Australia.

Guests will also enjoy a spacious bar area that includes a community table and customized seating and furnishings. The bar is connected directly to the outdoor dining patio.
