Very friendly and knowledgeable!! Have a great gluten free menu!!
Review by Lolli is completely untrue - drove all the way over there and the server said that they DO NOT have a gluten free frier. Very disappointed. Outback is pretty good for GF options but if they had a gluten free frier like Chicfila they would be outstanding. I can't really say they are Celiac friendly if they don't have a GF frier.
I went here for my birthday dinner because I recently heard about their gluten free menu and was excited to go somewhere different. I ordered a salad from the gluten free menu and it arrived covered in croutons. I then tried to order the gf brownie sundae that was mentioned by another reviewer, and is on the gf menu, only to be told by the waiter that they don't have it and he doesn't know why I thought they did. I then showed it to him on the gf menu and he told me again that they don't have any gf desserts so at this point I just gave up. Not worth the risk.
Terrible, terrible terrible. The staff were totally unfamiliar with the gluten free menu and generally frazzled. Read the gf menu carefully; the menu lists the normal dishes with suggestions underneath that would make them gluten free (ie order without bun). I got a burger without a bun with a baked potato on the side instead of fries (as suggested). They brought me the burger alone with the bun, and when I asked if it was a gluten free bun, they apologized and said they would fix it. They brought it back bun-less, without the cheese, with fries. Then I had to wait again for them to nix the fries and get a potato. This was honestly ridiculous for a place that advertises a gluten free menu, more of what I would expect from an establishment totally unfamiliar with catering to food allergies.
Not a lot of options, so I give a 3 star, but I did not get sick and the food was delicious.
Our waitress was slammed, but the restaurant seems pretty good at handling gluten. All additional servers verified that I was gluten free and despite already having done research and knowing what to order they still told me what was/was not gluten free. They also have a brownie that's gluten free and to die for!
I was very impressed with this restaurant. I asked for a Gluten-free menu and it was brought to me right away. There was a good sized menu with a variety of food to choose from. The only thing I did not see was an appetizer. I even had chocolate thunder from down under dessert made with a flourless brownie!! My husband ate it with me and could not tell that it was gluten free! This restaurant is highly recommended.
this place is a great place to eat at but the gf menu doesn't have any appetizers other than salad . and watching ur family/ friends eat there appetizers and bread it leaves u feeling a bit left out and not a very big gf menu at all but if ur starving and need to just eat this place is alright
I have extreme gluten sensitivity. I ordered off the gluten free menu and informed them about my sensitivity. They placed a rue sauce on my plate and I ate it assuming everything was gluten free as they promised. I then experienced the most horrific night of my life. When my husband called them, all they could say was oops. We dropped over $100 with our group. DONT TRUST THEM!!!
Ordered off the "gluten free" menu at the Outback in the Aquarius Casino, and the waitress took forever to get me a menu, and acted annoyed when I said I needed my food to be made seperately, then proceeded to ask me if I wanted croutons on my salad!!! I got sick from cross contamination from my potato or steak. I will not eat at an Outback steakhouse again. Do NOT have a gluten free menu if its not safe for us Celiacs.
I would be very careful at this restaurant. The wait staff seemed knowledgeable and helpful but I have been glutened twice there. The 2nd time I called and tried to figure out what happened. The manager was more interested in me talking to their insurance company to file a claim ( for what?) than trying to figure out where the gluten came from. I believe it was the salad. I think they picked croutons off and called it good. I will not go back.
It's great that outback recognizes being gluten free with a detailed, separate menu, but with all of the compromises they have to make, they may as well just put little symbols on their main menu like most other restaurants. For starters, they explicitly state that their Aussie fries (a flagship dish of Outback's) are not gluten free. That in its self is nearly a deal breaker, but their hamburgers, which were excellent when I could eat the whole thing, are only gluten free if they don't serve it with the bun. So if that's what you order (it would be a hamburger with Aussie fries typically), all you are getting is a grilled beef patty. Gluten free, but a very poor compromise, which I think does not justify eating at Outback until they figure out how to prepare more of their menu items actually gluten free.
My husband, who has celiac, has never had a reaction here. We've been at least twenty times. Just make sure you tell your server you are GF so that they cook your food with the right cookware. Some outbacks are only okay, but this one is consistently good and staff are friendly.
Dining in I've never had a problem with contamination and I've been eating here for years, but I cannot say the same for take-out. On two occasions I got very sick after eating take-out from there and on two other occasions I got home and the food was not prepared gluten free (croutons, blue cheese dressing, etc). Within the last week they have included bread in my order but the food was safe otherwise. For a chain they do a very good job overall.
staff is very helpful and if they don't know ow the answer they find it for you. They are very cautious about gf needs. From my experience, every time I've eaten there, my waiter / waitress has at least heard of a gf diet if not known how to be careful of it. I don't have any worries when I eat here. If only Texas roadhouse could take some lessons from them....
What an awful experience. I have Celiac Disease and while eating I discovered that there was a crouton buried in my salad that I specifically requested to be prepared Gluten Free- "no croutons" The server said "Oh, they must have just picked off the croutons when they realized it was supposed to be gluten free" I nicely explained that people with Celiac Disease can't even have a crumb and he seemed surprised. Better training needs to be implemented in and out of the kitchen. This is absolutely unacceptable from a restaurant that partners with The Celiac Sprue Foundation. On top of having a slow, immature wait staff, I would definitely not recommend this location. Especially for people with Celiac Disease.
After a long time away from this restaurant I met a friend for lunch. It was disappointing to see how far they have gone downhill in service and selection. Will never be back unless someone posts that things have improved.
After eating about a third of my salad, I noticed a crouton underneath some lettuce. I told the waitress who was very apologetic. She apparently informed the owner who promptly came to our table to apologize and say that they take this type of thing very seriously. I can tell you that I have no confidence in this location now. I understand people make mistakes , but it was a serious one!
Very happy eating here. Ask for the manager and tell them of the restrictions they are well versed on their menus and are extremely helpful.
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.
