    They offer gf salads, paninis, and pizzas. I had the gf veggie panini and it was good. Service was quick and the staff was knowledgable and friendly. The only thing I can complain about is their hours of 7-3... Wish they were open for dinner (especially since they are right across the sidewalk from our hotel). I definitely will be returning soon to try their pizza!

    Service? A little awkward but overall good service. The food? Well... It was good while I ate it. I got the shrimp Caesar salad and specifically asked for no croutons and for it to be prepared gluten free. The waiter said "gluten free? Yeah." and seemed like he understood. I have been to other Outbacks and ordered this same item and had no problems, but honestly, I'm lucky I made it back to our hotel. Within about a hour of leaving Outback, I was sick. The last meal/food I ate was 6 hours prior to arriving at Outback so I'm certain that Outback was the culprit. Pretty sad as they do have a dedicated gf menu and apparently are trained on gluten-free awareness. I am honestly questioning how well all locations are trained or if some staff members are even trained enough to know the words "gluten free." My poor review is from the fact that I got sick . I understand cross-contamination (and have had no problems at other restaurants... Ones that don't even have a dedicated gluten-free menu), but I expect more from Outback's supposedly GIG-trained staff.

    The menu inside is not labeled gf but if you look online, they have a gf menu. Staff was knowledgable. I wasn't going to order fries but the waitress said they were gf. I ordered them, had second thoughts bc they were not listed on the website as gf, and then we asked if they were cooked in the same oil as any other foods and we were told that all foods fried are cooked in separate oils (100% peanut oil). They do have veg and vegan options - the quinoa salad was great. My husband had the lounge burger and he said it was really good also. The fries were so good and they were served on a separate plate so we could share (as my husband had a non-gf burger). That was nice of them. You order your food as you do in a fast food restaurant and then you pick a table and you are served. Honestly, service was exceptionally good. The wait staff was very attentive and very nice. Neat little restaurant.

    Food? 4/5 stars. Great food - delicious gf crust. Also had the edamame which was sadly over cooked so much that some pods were close to mush.. Otherwise, 5/5 if it weren't for the edamame being over cooked. Service? 3/5. Slow, non-attentive service when it was not busy. We stood waiting to be seated for quite awhile before we figured it must have been a seat yourself restaurant (since there was no sign and we were not acknowledged by anyone). It wasn't. we were not acknowledged until quite some time after we sat down. Sat for quite some time before receiving our appetizer.. No wonder it was close to mush. Sat without drinks which were never refilled. We never were asked how our food was. Even getting our bill and receiving our card after took longer than it should have. The food was worth it even with the service.

    Loved Heinen's! So great for being gf. From the regular aisles to the frozen section, they have a great selection. There are many options and many brands. Also on their website is a "flyer" that gives you a gluten-free shopping list, and they do have gf tours at a few locations. So cool!

    Dedicated gf menu (though not on the regular menu). Waitress specifically asked if my order was gf as soon as I asked for no croutons - seemed knowledgable. They do have gf desserts (a brownie and some ice cream dessert), but for the price (over $7 for the brownie) and taste, I would have much rather gotten a gf dessert from the grocery store. Overall, nothing too special for the price.

    Great selection of gf items BUT beware that many items placed in the dedicated gf section are not gf.
