I love my local Outback. They are fabulous about dealing with allergy & gluten issues, including making dessert substitutions when I can't eat what's offered with a deal (which they absolutely don't have to do by policy, so I think it rocks that they do). If something is wrong (like a steak being the wrong temp), 99% of the time, a manager brings the food out to check on you & make sure it's correct. I think I've had 1 unfriendly server there (which is pretty amazing these days at most places), and I love the management team. Overall, the store is always very clean (though I'd love to see them do away with the air freshener in the bathroom because it can be cloying & it makes it tricky to breathe inside). The reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because of something another review points out: the lack of the GF fryer. They had one, and they had amazing fries. I frequently bragged to people that our Outback had gone above & beyond corporate's GF menu & had purchased a GF fryer out of their store budget. Unfortunately, it broke earlier this year, and as of a couple of weeks ago they still had not replaced it. I understand that it is an extra expense, but I was truly hoping they'd replace it. That fryer was often the deciding factor for us if we were debating between a couple of restaurants, because it was one of the few places I could get fries. Since they've not replaced it, we've not eaten there as often as we had in the past, because some of the point of spending the extra money to go to the nicer restaurant was so I could have something I really miss. Given how amazing the store is with allergen info & avoiding cross-contamination, I highly recommend going. The GF menu is pretty impressive, and the food is always great. I'd be back to giving them 5 stars again if they would replace that fryer.
At one time, they had a gf fryer for fries but decided to do away with it. This was a huge let down for my children who very rarely get to order fries when we eat out!
Safe place for Celiacs and their food is pretty tasty too. Been here many times without any sickness following.
My son has celiac disease and is very sensitive to cross contamination. He has enjoyed about 20 delicious meals at this location and has never had an issue. Highly recommend! Great management.
What a wonderful Gluten Free menu. The staff suggested the Cheesy Fry appetizer. It is save since they have a dedicated fryer. OH MY-that was good. Our waitress told us about the burgers and the gluten free buns!! Right, they have gluten free buns!!! The dessert was great too. A few days later and I am still feeling fine so no cross-contamination!! I give this a three thumbs up!! Wait....oh....I only have two thumbs..can I borrow yours? :-)
Yes, it's a chain, which I'm always cautios of, but this Outback goes above and beyond! They provide bread, hamburger buns, and their fries are gluten free! An exclusive menu I've only found at this Outback, plus great service.. I highly recommend! :)
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!
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!
I went here for my birthday and was delighted to see how awesome their GF menu was! The waitress was friendly and knowlegdable, the manager came over to our table and visited...it was a lovely experience. I ate ribs and ended with the flourless cake- I cannot tell you how great it was... ..until I got home. violently ill. for days. Only one other time have i ever been that sick. Completely devastating and worst birthday ever.
They have a separate menu which is very nice and while they can't guarantee cross contamination, I had no issues. My waiter was very knowledgeable and took great care with my order! They even offer a gf dessert which is more than just ice cream!!! Will return next I'm in St. Pete.
My husband and I have visited several PNW Outbacks and this one has absolutely been our favorite thus far. The food was outstanding. The staff was so quick, friendly and knowledgable and the atmosphere was wonderful. We are still talking about how great the food was a week later!
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.
I've eaten at this location many times and never had a problem. I normally get Alice's chicken which is very good. The last time I got the filet and lobster tail. Both were delicious but the lobster tail was the smallest one I had ever seen. The chocolate thunder from down under is also great!
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 have gone here for years and they have been one of the few places I have never gotten sick at from gluten contamination! The service is always wonderful and they are always careful with my food and it ends up tasting great! We will definitely keep returning.
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.
They have a gluten free menu with many options, but keep in mind that it's a chain restaurant so it's really important to talk to your waitress about cross contamination.
Best chain restaurant for Gluten free by far! Staff and management are wonderful!
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.
