I called before coming here and the manager told me he had celiac! I told our waitress and she knew exactly what I meant and informed the kitchen. We were celebrating my birthday and they brought us their gluten free dessert on the house!
Gluten Free menu and great choices. Had the Victoria filet with a baked potato. My salad was without croutons. Then, we had the thunder from down under... who knew that is GF. So yummy. No ill effects and happy to have a delicious meal.
I was a bit worried after some reviews, but our experiance was wonderful. My husband has celiac and my daughter has an anaphylactic allergic response to garlic. The kitchen manager came out and personally addressed our issues. They went to far to cook both meals in tinfoil pans they made. I was very inpressed with the detail they spent on our meal
Let me start by saying none of us got sick- yay While the steak was excellent, the salmon and the chicken were over cooked we should have sent them back but the kids were hungry so we dealt with it. The chicken was also spicy- we weren’t expecting that. Dessert was yummy so all in all not too bad. Next time we’ll stick with the steak
Not the best tasting steak dinner out there but we were hungry after seeing a show, and this was open at 11pm - I had zero issue with x-contamination & was sure to let my server know my needs. had potatoes, green beans & sirloin ... happy celiac belly afterwards :)
Great food! Our waiter Adam was very knowledgeable of CC, & assured me that the chefs would change their gloves & that the have a safe dedicated cook space. I enjoyed the filet mignon & lobster tail with mixed veggies & mashed potatoes. For dessert, their only option is the chocolate thunder from down under, a delicious warm gf walnut brownie with ice cream & whipped cream. So delicious! This place is one of our go to’s!
I placed an order for pickup. I was a little nervous because the online gluten free menu didn’t indicate whether the recipe had been altered to make the entree gluten free. I just indicated celiac disease in the special instructions. The takeaway manager was super knowledgeable about celiac disease and, unprompted, assured me that all precautions were taken to eliminate cross contamination.
The server was not knowledgeable at all with the term Celiac Disease so I told her my son can't have anything with gluten. She still didn't seem to get it, but once she came back to the table, she seemed a bit more informed (suspect she went and asked). She said his meal will come out by itself, which it didn't. He had a filet and baked potato and thirty minutes after eating, his stomach began hurting. On top of that, my husband had broke glass in his chicken meal, which he discovered only after biting down on it. I heard it crunch as he bite down. Very scary.
I ordered from the GF menu and told the waitress I had an allergy. I did not get the dish I ordered. The server who brought it was confused and the waitress thought she could just remove the crab cake and it would be fine. I eventually convinced her otherwise. They remade my meal. Considering my large party had to wait all that time, I think they really should have comped us something, free dessert or something. Update- got sick too, skip the St Pete location.
We were so happy with the service and knowledge at this location. We’ve tried the GF menu at other Outback locations and were given salads with croutons! The waiter was great and understood the needs of our son, who has Celiac. The food was delivered to our table by the manager, and everything was great! Great job, Outback Lumberton! You calm the nerves of this Mama Bear!! And who knew that the Thunder from Down Under was GF??? Delish!
We had a good and affordable meal here. My kids and I ordered the sirloin steaks. In addition to being GF, my son also has a peanut/tree nut allergy. Steaks were cooked as ordered and server was very friendly and pleasant.
Update: My son seems to have had reactions twice here since. :( not sure how serious they take cross contamination. Our first server there seemed really aware, the others in not sure. Be careful. I don’t know we’ll be returning and especially without a conversation with a manager. Staff seemed aware and careful when bringing gluten free menu items to the table. My son had no reactions following the meal. Would be nice if they could offer a gluten free fryer. Menu is pricey for a chain, but a good option to add to our local list.
Had Jesse as a waiter he was absolutely wonderful. The menu was awesome my daughter had ribs even with barbecue sauce. I got ranch on my salad. Potato was yummy and the dessert I thought my daughter was going to take out my husband lol. But their never seems to be dessert that’s gluten free so we were so excited. I would definitely recommend for celiacs and gluten sensitivity what a wonderful experience will come back next time we’re in town
Gluten free menu made it easy to determine what was safe to eat. If you're looking for anything with bread (burger, sandwich, etc.), they do not have gluten free bread. However, they do have a gluten free brownie and clearly identify gluten free salad dressings and side items.
My celiac daughter ate a baked potato here. We even tested it with the Nima and it tested <20ppm gluten. The only complaint is a limited menu that my child likes at least. Other, less picky people, may find the menu to be acceptable.
Best gluten free meal experience we have had anywhere since diagnosis. Cody our server was very knowledgeable and took great care of us!! The food was delicious...don’t leave without the chocolate thunder from down under!
I’ve eaten here 3 times and each time I’ve been very specific about being celiac. The servers are uneducated about what it means to be “gluten free” and one even asked where I got their gluten free menu. I ate basic food (grilled chicken, steamed veggies, salad) and all 3 times I’ve gotten sick. I won’t be going back, even though they have a “Gluten Free Menu.”
I got a gluten free menu and the waiter I had didn’t even write down that I was celiac and sure enough I got sick. So tell them to write down you have an allergy or they won’t! But the food was good.
Awesome menu choices. Servers are educated about celiac disease and quite helpful. We go almost weekly and they go out of their way for me every time. I have my mushrooms sauteed in butter because their roux contains flour. I never knew that - they go above and beyond!!! I highly recommend Outback Steak House!!!
The server and manager were great! I was well taken care of and had plenty of options. I ordered the Alice Springs Chicken, mashed potatoes, and side salad with no croutons. Everything was prepared well and I had no issues.
