We stopped for dinner today since we always hear how great Outback is for GF.. Wow not a winner at this location, the staff was clueless, didn't help that the manager was MIA when I asked to speak to someone w/seniority that had a clue. I was telling the server based on the online gf menu how he needed to modify my meal... In the middle of my meal, while eating the waiter came over to ask how my food was, and what would really happen if something was prepped wrong... glad he wanted to know, but made me nervous, food wasn't that great.
We have been there twice. The first time Aussie fries were on the same plate as the "GF" burger (Aussie Fries are clearly marked as NOT GF on menu). When we commented to waitress she looked shocked and said "but the burger doesn't have a bun". She didn't have a clue. We talked to management and they apologized. This week we thought we would give them another try and the "GF" burger arrived with a bun. The waiter offered to remove the bun. Obviously they don't have a clue about being gluten free and cross contamination issues. We left without eating and will not be returning.
I've been here a couple of times and haven't gotten sick. Ask for the steak to be cooked on the Woodfire open grill rather than the flat top.
Had an unfortunate experience recently. Ordered steak, sweet potato, and salad with no croutons. As I was eating (and because I am paranoid about eating out) I kept thinking I was tasting croutons, but thought it must be my imagination...not so, before I left the restaurant, I was doubled over with pain and sick for three days. I guess someone put them on the salad, then saw the order and picked them off, leaving the "dust"!!! No more salads from Outback!!!!
my favorite thing at Outback Steakhouse gluten free wise is the Thunder from Down Under brownie Sunday which is warm brownie on the bottom and you can either include the ice cream talk or you don't have to if you have dairy issues as well as they have steak or pork or shrimp or chicken or salad which you can add those too if you want Less meat. or just order a salad by itself and have no meat fir a quick lunch or vegetarian lifestyle
I just ate there and it was delicious!!! They have a gluten free menu and lots of options to choose from. The girl that was upfront asking how many were in our party seemed to be not so friendly but only had to deal with her a few seconds but our waiter was extremely friendly and we had a great meal. I felt the food was prepared safely and I am very picky about this.
While they are gluten free, they are not Celiac friendly. I was very careful and told the server I had Celiac. After I ate, I could tell right away that I had been accidentally glutened. I believe they just weren't careful with the salad. The manager felt terrible.
Told them I was celiac and ordered a ceasar salad with my dinner. They brought out a regular salad with croutons on it. Made me wonder about my dinner so I asked for the manager. He did go back and start my food from scratch but not sure what would have happened if I had not intervened.c
Almost always a safe choice while traveling. However, like another reviewer, I also have trouble with their salads. For that reason, I always order the same dish. Pricey, but a great, consistently safe meal on the road or for special occasions. Five stars for the Outback near Pigeon Forge, TN, who also had delicious gf rolls!
