    Dedicated gluten free menu has lots of options. Just ask the hostess for it. They even have a hot gluten free brownie a la mode for dessert! Management is always happy to answer any questions.

    Ask for a gluten free menu. Staff was familiar with preparing gluten free for my Celiac disease. The waiter even brought up what precautions they take (change gloves, different utensils, etc...) to let me know they went out of their way to be safe.

    Ordered from their gluten free menu, the Alice springs chicken was delicious with mashed potatoes. No reactions, and our server was wonderful! Had to enjoy an angry orchard in a bottle with it as well.

    If you mention that you need gluten free options they will give a menu. The gluten free menu doesn’t have any prices. The staff has some knowledge of gluten free but not a lot. It depends on who your server is.

    I ate at Outback for my dad’s birthday tonight, and I was at least willing to try it after seeing a few positive reviews here in the Fort. After all, beggars can’t be choosers. I will say, though, my waitress was very knowledgeable about cc and she was able to give me a full run down on cooking processes. I had the chicken and mixed veggies, with an added shrimp skewer. Overall, the dish was pretty plain. But it was also safe! And I Nima tested it, with a happy result. The waitress also brought me a side of bbq sauce and butter, both gf. Add that with some salt and pepper, and we were in business! I don’t love eating out, but there were a decent number of options and in the end— it was safe. That’s a 100% win in my book!

    The gluten free menu was easy to order from however had no prices listed on it. I also feel like there could be more to cater to kids who need to be gluten free including a dedicated fryer for fries. Other than that the 3 celiacs in our family including myself did not get sick, and the waitress made every effort to ensure that we had a good experience. She even suggested cooking our food on foil to keep us safe. 5 stars for her.

    After checking with the chef, the waitress informed me that the only option for me was a steak-if I had veggies, they would need to be dry as ALL their butter has gluten. Same with their baked potatoes. No butter available. The salads are all prepared with croutons, so there would be no guarantee there wouldn’t be croutons or crouton-crumbs in every salad.

    They do not change their gloves. They contaminate everything, and do not really know what gluten is. They will take the croutons off a salad and give it back to you.... Not super knowledgeable about allergies in general here.

    Be super careful with any Outback. A lot of celiacs seem to also have msg sensitivities and Outback absolutely loads their food down with it. I stopped eating there because there hasn’t been a time that I can recall not getting extremely sick for days.

    Our waiter Caleb was amazing. He was super helpful. Very attentive and careful not to pass gluten containing food/plates over mine. I had the sirloin w/ grilled shrimp. Loaded mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Chocolate thunder from down under for dessert. I had no issues. We were very pleased with the trip and the food was fantastic.

    WOW!!! They are totally about avoiding cross contamination. Our server was barely to the table and when she saw my menu .... she pulled back on putting the complimentary bread on the table. The two food runners that brought out plates out .... one for everyone else and my gf plate carried out by itself by a separate person to avoid cc!!! I can’t wait to go back. Wish I could give them 10 stars.

    Server did not pay attention to the version of the dish that I ordered off the gluten free menu, and gave me the regular version of the dish, so I had to send it back. She also made a mistake on our bill, and the building was being remodeled. This review reflects just this location not the chain. My food was delicious when it came. The gluten free menu was very informative and had enough variety, but it did not list all ingredients like lemon butter on the tilapia.

    One of our go to places in town for a nice dinner. I have eaten at this location at least a half dozen times since becoming GF and the staff are well trained on how to handle GF requests. In addition they have decent size GF menu. Some places you go give you two or three things, but I feel you have a decent selection with Outback.

    Maybe the choice of the waitress was bad. Twice we got a meal with bread over the salad and the waitress won't believe that traces from gluten are harmful. And we told her from beginning that it is an allergy and no healthy lifestyle. Other Outback experience were great.

    I don't eat out that often due to celiac and multiple, severe food intolerances, but this is one place that I have found that I can go and eat safely. They take food allergies very seriously. I have eaten there many times over the years since my diagnosis, and I have never been sick or cross-contaminated. And FYI - THEY NO LONGER HAVE A GF FRYER which the Outback chain forced them to remove; personally that didn't make a difference to me since I'm focusing on maximizing my nutrition and fried food tend to disagree with me, even with healthy oils.

    What im going to say here seems to be inline with the other reviews here. Ive ate here maybe 10 times because i live around here. I was excited to find out they were gf. At one point outback and its affiliates were really highly rated for gf even. Im talking 3 or 4 years ago which is likely why the reviews in that time period are good. I ate there then and also would have rated them highly, but there standards on this have went way down since then across the chain. This location a couple years ago or so also came under a new manager even. I was up all night sick because of this place last night and yes ordered from the gf menu, and they knew i was celiac as usual, but this was pretty bad. Ive had a few cc issues the last few times but this one was the worst. I gave it chances because it wasnt always this way and i tend to get much stricter with ordering in those cases, like no sauces or tomatues with the grilled shrimp, no bacon on the loaded baked potatoe. I eliminate the suspects and its almost like reading from their own gf menu as its mostly things already stated there which the weightstaff and cook don't seem to ever look at on their own. Im not sure what changed as really the whole chain was great at one point, but im a bit more careful now with this one than i used to be. This location though...i really cant go back this time.

    I have been to the one in Huntsville several times and had a wonderful experience! However; I went to the Auburn location for a friend’s birthday and made sure the server and manager knew I had Celiac Disease. I explained that cross contamination will make me sick. However, my meal (I ordered the pork steak, baked potato, and salad) was brought out, and my server had plated my food with mac & cheese as the side, touching my pork. I explained to the server that I could not eat this food without getting sick because the pork had now been cross-contaminated and asked her to remake it. She took it back to the kitchen, but came back almost immediately with the pork re-plated and baked potato on the plate. I re-iterated to her that I couldn’t eat something that had been cross-contaminated, but the server insisted it was a different piece of pork meat. Not wanting to make any more of a scene on my friend’s birthday, I ate it, and got very sick from the meal. I wish all of the servers took Celiac Disease seriously.

    I have eaten at Outback in Gilbert three times in the last month. I have ordered a Cobb salad each time. Unexplained that I had celiac disease. They said they would be careful and every time I have been sick. I keep going back because they say they are careful but unfortunately I have not found that yet. I will continue and keep trying because I love Outback, but beware.
