    I've never gotten sick here and I have a very sensitive stomach my favorite is the Alice Springs Chicken without the mushrooms, one time when I went with my boyfriend it had mushrooms they were very understanding and made me a brand new one and apologized and gave us our meal for free!

    I will NEVER visit this location again. Despite being so far away, we really like Outback and wanted to try it. First visit - my husband became violently ill. Our waiter was more concerned with flirting with the table of four women in their late 20s-early 30s than with anything to do with us. We didn't order alcohol, so we never saw him again until he brought our food and then brought our check. That was it. Three whole visits. We complained and received a free dessert coupon - that we couldn't use! When I mentioned it, the manager wrote we could get one of the two gf options instead. So about two weeks later, we make the LONG drive down south to eat at this location. Second visit - my husband becomes violently ill. Our waitress told us they didn't have gf selections because they weren't "that kind of restaurant". We asked to be reseated with a new waiter/waitress. That was a huge commotion, and the waitress threw a tantrum about it in front of everyone. New table, new waitress, we finally order. The food delivered is not what we ordered, not how we ordered it, and not gf. Also, we received alcoholic beverages - which we did not order nor can consume. We get through the meal and my husband is violently ill before we leave the restaurant. He goes to the bathroom to be sick and is there for over half an hour. During this time, I am asked THREE TIMES to leave so they can have the table. We haven't even gotten the check yet! We don't even order the free dessert we went for. In the parking lot, I call the restaurant and ask for the manager. I complain about the HORRIBLE service we received, and he starts to yell at me over the phone. I mention I'm in the parking lot, and he comes to my car and yells at me in person. I wanted to call the cops, I was so scared! A LONG time passes, and we're craving Outback. So we decide to give it ONE MORE CHANCE. Third visit - our waiter sits us at a dirty table, then at the bar (which we specifically said we didn't want), and finally at a booth that was clean. We ordered drinks and our entrees (since we know what we eat there). The drinks come with the entrees 45 minutes later. Mine has everything on it I asked to be left off; my husband's is missing the bacon. Both have mashed potatoes with gravy instead of loaded baked potatoes. We send them back and the manager comes over to ask "what our problem is". As soon as I mention that we're gluten-free he says, "Oh. You're that bitchy couple that's always in here complaining about our bad food. Well let me tell you - my staff is trained and certified in gluten-free service. Our food is the best around, and this restaurant is perfect. If you don't like it, then stop eating here. We don't want you here anyways." We were so shocked, and so were the people around us. I started crying, I was so upset and humiliated. We left, and three other tables left with us. In the parking lot, they all spoke with us to find out what was going on. WE WILL NEVER EAT HERE AGAIN. Outback is amazing, but this location can frankly go to hell and take its "perfect" and "best around" food with it. You poison my husband and myself, yell in my face, and blame me? Nope. BAD RESTAURANT, BAD SERVICE. Stay away.

    Outback steak house has its own gluten free menu that includes salmon, steak, lobster, chicken, salads (and what dressings you can have), etc. But to top off all of the great food that's gluten free the Thunder From Down Under dessert is gluten free as well! It's a huge brownie topped with ice cream then whipped cream then chocolate sauce! 5 stars for outback!

    The waiter was very sweet and let me know that my food would be prepared separately and that the kitchen would be alerted of an allergy. Had a lot of options. The waiter still brought bread to the table is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

    I had a wonderful experience taking my Father to outback steakhouse. My food was amazing as was the food of every other member of the family. Both my waiter Stanley and the manager made it so easy although the gf menu is a little longer than I have been accustomed to and the "thunder from down under" their signature dessert is gluten-free!!!

    Good for non-sensitive people, but too many mistakes here for me. :( Finding croutons buried in my tub of carryout ranch dressing was the last straw. We used to go here regularly and they would waffle between whether the fries were made in a dedicated frier or not on each visit. My family still eats here regularly but it's been a couple years for me. They might be better now, but be very cautious!

    Of the 3 entrees that we ordered, only one came out correct. I got the grilled chicken cobb which came out incorrect. When I finally got a new one, it was only very pale lettuce, a few tomatoes and about 4 small strips of chicken (about half a breast.) Something was contaminated because I was broken out within a few minutes of beginning to eat. They did comp our meal but it wasn't worth it. I could have had a much better salad from Wendy's for a fraction of the price.

    Use the words "gluten allergy" and they will bend over backwards to make sure you are taken care of! I have celiac and have eaten here many times and never been sick from it. They are happy to re-make dishes, allow substitutions, and just generally make your meal enjoyable. My favorite thing is the mushroom marsala sauce that you can add to your meat, because it is safe and also delicious! You can't have any of the appetizers, which is sad because I love me some chili-fries, but you can get any of the salads on the GF menu instead. Service can be a tiny bit slow sometimes, but I have only ever been with a large party and that inevitably takes a little longer, so they still get 5 stars in my book.

    Had the hamburger without the bun. Very tasty. Couldn't have the fries, sadly. Had a Ceasar side salad instead. I found a crouton it. Not good. Waitress apologized and replaced it. Not good for those of us highly sensitively. Delicious food though. Just be aware.

    I don't understand how a plate of steamed vegetables ordered without butter can cause issues, but it did, twice. After our second visit where there was a reaction after eating here we have to write this place off as not gluten friendly. Both times we specified no gluten and only water was ordered so I don't know how they could mess this order up, but the proof was 2 rough nights.

    Don't listen to GFJohnny!! He must not know what to expect from a steakhouse chain which had wonderful food btw. This outback was well versed in celiac awareness. The manager came to our table immediately to speak to us about our allergy concerns. She informed us that the owners wife has celiac and he makes sure every person in the restaurant down to the hostesses takes a training course in gluten allergies. So from the moment you ask for a gluten free menu the manager is already informing the waitress and kitchen staff of your allergy. The manager let us know that all of the seasonings they use are gluten free and the kitchen staff changes gloves, pans etc for your meal as well as cooks your food in foil to prevent cross contamination. When you order gluten free food your ticket comes up with gluten allergy in large red bold font so it is not missed and the owner as well as the manager was back in the kitchen to ensure everything was properly prepared for us. She was available to answer any and all questions we had and was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend stopping here we had a wonderful meal. Everyone was very friendly, wonderful waitress, clean restaurant, great food, all around amazing celiac friendly chain restaurant. If give 10 stars if possible they go above and beyond for their customers to ensure the best possible experience.
