    Excellent service and food. I am a very sensitive Celiac, and my server understood my allergy and made recommendations. I really enjoyed my food (steak and shrimp, mashed potatoes and a house salad). I did not get sick at all! Yay.

    I've eaten here a few times with no problems -- getting the chicken on the barbie and the steak with baked potato. You just need to be careful and make sure to ask for your salad with no croutons and mixed separately to avoid cross contamination.

    Not only do they have a GF menu that includes a desert brownie, but they were willing to modify regular menu items too. Our server was knowledgeable and verified with the chef about my modifications. Great food, great service. 😊

    VERY accommodating! So far no one is sick. I love the amount of options plus even a dessert! So far no one is sick! The GF menu tells you what to say to the server when ordering (with or without seasoning) and they make all the food separately. Plus the server was very knowledgable. I'm so glad we found another place to eat out.

    I recommend the Bremerton, WA, Hwy 303 Outback. I did NOT get sick here. Reading other reviews, I can see this varies greatly with location, but in this case, it was a good experience. They accommodated my GF and dairy free request cheerfully. Both management and staff were professional, personable, and knowledgeable about GF and cross-contamination. A manager oversees the preparation of any meal when a food allergy/sensitivity is involved, and they assure me they use a separate prep area. I'm not a chain restaurant kind of person, but wanted to be safe. I had a simple, decent meal with a nicely cooked piece of fish, steamed vegetables, and a baked potato, with olive oil and wine vinegar, and I didn't have to suffer for it afterward. The only mistake they made was to put containers of gluten-containing dressing literally on the side of the plate of the appetizer we were sharing. Some of the contents slopped out onto the food. But they were very receptive to my explanation of why this is not okay and suggestion that they always serve the dressings on a separate plate in future. Everything else was very well done. Note: they do not have a designated fryer.

    I got sick here. They seemed to be knowledgable but I didn't feel great afterwards. I did get some high fat foods (butter, etc) so it could have been that but I'm not going to try it again.

    Ordered the 6oz Outback Special with the Baked Potato ... got so sick within 30 minutes of leaving (the time it took to get from here to Memorial City Mall), had to skip out on a movie and go back home after a bad reaction. So disappointed. Never again. I put "no" under celiac friendly, because while they DO have a GF menu, they really don't care if you're GF or not.

    Wide and varied menu with a lot of GF options- Staff was very pleasant and gluten aware- however, I am extremely sensitive to cross contamination and was glutened despite their best efforts- if you can handle minute amounts of gluten, you will be fine; however if you cannot tolerate any gluten whatsoever, you may want to try other options.

    Staff are very knowledgable and provide a GF menu upon request that is very helpful when ordering. Be careful with salad dressings, sometimes the staff mixes up the GF and non-GF. Refer to menu for substitutions. So far I have eaten here several times without incident. I love the brownie dessert also. Don't miss out!

    After grilling the waitress, I can tell you that the following seems to be regular practice: gluten free food is prepped in separate area, separate containers of butter are used, grill space is separate or cleaned prior to cooking. I had a complicated order, which came out exactly right and was delicious as well. A good experience.

    Ate dinner here 7/15/14 as a to go order. Told them whole meal was gluten free. Guy called me back and asked again after I placed order if the whole meal was gluten free I said yes I am allergic to gluten. 4 hours later I am sick as a dog and have to fly out at 3am in the morning. So angry for the blatant neglect of keeping things gluten free. Not to mention I called and complained once because my salad that I ordered with my meal was completely rotten and inedible. Definitely not worth the price or pain I am paying now.

    This location is pretty sub-standard. I was really unimpressed when my fiancΓ© and I ordered the prime rib to split and ended up getting the heel end of it that didn't even have any filet on it. And we ordered the largest size! As for gluten-free it's like any other chain Outback: decent selection, but the quality just isn't there at this one.

    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.

    Mixed up my order three times. First gave me a side salad salad with a random piece of chicken in it. Then they gave me a dinner with gluten-filled rice. When I pointed out their mistake, they removed the rice and have me the same fish and veggies hat were already contaminated with gluten. The chefs and waiters obviously had no idea what celiac means. I love Outback, but was not impressed with this location!
