Favorite place to eat GF. Luckily what I always got was GF all along. But I like how they have a separate GF menu. Thier cheese fries aren't on the GF menu, but they don't make me sick and are awesome!! I do have to add that I am mild celiac and was told not to worry about cross contamination and have not had a problem with it yet.
As of 08/05/13 staff does not seem to understand the true meaning of "gluten free". I have tried the chicken caesar twice, and both times were cross contaminated. Not being a full blown celiac I am not as concerned about CC ... but know how big of a deal this is for others. I stressed that I was GF, and said no croutons!!! (would you grill something on a grill that had traces of peanut oil if someone had a peanut allergy? Or use the same gloves? The same tongs? Put peanuts on their food? I don't think so. I wish people realized it's the same...and just because you do not go into anaphylactic shock right then and there that it does not mean its not a "legit" reaction. Anyways ....point is, It came with croutons. I realized only after I got home, (should have checked!) like I said though, not a huge deal for me personally..... but come on. Also, when she brought it out to the car she seemed confused and asked if it was "okay that she didn't put bread in the bag?" Again, just shows she had no idea. Unfortunate. Second time there were several bites I took with strong hints of blue cheese. Not a gluten free dressing. Bummer. Belonging to a chain that boasts such a GF friendly, and extensive menu, I feel like staff should be better educated on gluten allergies and the importance of CC. An extra star added for great taste though! Other outbacks get rave reviews and seem to be more knowledgable then the staff at this location. I plan to speak to a manager because staff can not correct an issue if they are not even aware it's an issue to begin with. Hopefully they are understanding about it and correct it. it would be a shame for someone else to have a full blown reaction due to something that could have easily been avoided! Or for anyone to have to miss out on something as delicious as this!
Chain food is not my favorite, but Outback Steakhouse had tasty food and a positive atmosphere. When you sit down, be sure to tell your server no dinner rolls. I usually won't eat steak, but Outback makes delicious steak. On the side, I ate shrimp and a salad. 4 stars instead of 5 because my steak tasted a little burnt and crispy. Otherwise, Outback was pleasant and enjoyable. (Visited in August 2012)
My husband & son are gluten intolerant. We eat here all the time & they have never gotten sick. Gluten free menu has many items. Chicken & ribs combo is my favorite!! The shrimp on the Barbie is great but they changed their sauce that it used to come with which is no longer gluten free, get ranch instead. Great place for lunch or dinner😄
I ate here at 7:30pm - I had the BBQ ribs with no sauce and a plain baked potato - balsamic vinaigrette on the side to dip my ribs.... Currently I am awake at 4:00am, sick, and I know I have another 4 hours or so of this pain. I may not have chosen wisely - but - I chose off their gluten free menu. I'm afraid they may not have safe gluten free practices in their kitchen.
(Could be Celiac friendly, if the kitchen was more cautious) I would have given 5 stars but the kitchen did not pay attention and accidentally dropped an item that was not gluten free under my steak. I had a reaction before I even left the resturant.
I would rate 0 stars if I could! I they have a GF menu but are not educated on GF cooking! I feel like it is even worse when a restaurant has an advertised GF menu and they mess up. It makes me feel like they have at least and idea of what they are doing when they don't! I will never be returning to this outback as they have severely messed up the last two times I have gone! When I went a few days ago, despite ordering off the gluten free menu and triple checking everything with my server, I still got glutened. I've been sick for days and it doesn't seem to be clearing up anytime soon. The time before that the messed up the sides between my order and a friends and the server told me just to switch the sides. Even after I explained to her. For the third time cross contamination she tried to tell me I would be ok. She brought out a new mean as the rest of my party finished eating so I just took it home to my fiancé to eat. So needless to say I will never go back.
I've been eating here for years. While I can get a gluten free meal here, the ckicken and salmon is often overcooked, and steaks often come out undercooked or overcooked (rare does not mean raw, and I mean RAW). The other problem is the new gluten free menu: Items that used to be gluten free (w/modifications are gone) like burgers w/o buns, prime rib w/o ajus, lamb shank w/o sauce. Was it really that hard to leave off items to make them gluten free? We used to eat here once a week. Not anymore. It's not a good value for what we pay for.
I have often eaten at the Outback Steakhouse without incident, but this particular location first brought me my order without the gluten free modifications--I noticed the sauce I was not supposed to have. They brought me the revised meal, and I got sick in the car on the way home. :(
I've gone to this location several times and as long as you politely make it clear to the waitstaff that you can't eat gluten they are very accommodating. Every time my food was brought out they double checked with the chef (without me asking!) that it was the gluten free order, including my brownie sundae which was delicious.
I was so happy they had a whole other gluten free menu ( you just have to ask for it) the food was amazing and the service was wonderful. I just recently got diagnosed with gluten intolerancey so its nice to have a restaurant that you don't have to rack your brain about what to get
Great gf menu with lots of steak and side choices.
The food was very good and they did have a dedicated gluten free menu. However the gluten free menu had no prices so I really didn't know how much my check would be. Also, the waiter was kind but the service wasn't great and my salad arrived with croutons. However, he did apologize and they brought me a fresh one. Alll said I will definitely eat here again, the four stars instead of five is mainly because there were no prices on the menu.
Several options mainly including steaks, chicken and seafood with vdgetables. No bread options, or appetizers (I usually just get a starter house salad no croutons). Wait staff is iffy, but the chefs got it down. 4 stars because the only instances I've had getting sick were when I ordered the GF dessert option (3 separate occasion s), so I pass on that one nowadays.
