    This place is horrible! I just don't even know how Celiac people could even eat here! It's like Celiac people don't even matter at Outback and it's so sad because I had to leave because I got sick with the cross contamination! ;(

    They have menu's that highlight nut allergies, but NOTHING to say if an item is GF! The waiter was back and forth to the kitchen asking questions about ingredients. I am HIGHLY suspicious about preparation practices for celiac. These are NEW menus too... Also, no GF desserts anymore.

    Good gluten free food, and gf chocolate brownie/cake for dessert. I enjoyed my meal and the service here.

    5 stars for understanding my diet needs. 3 consecutive visits of overcooking and undercooking my steak equals zero stats. the last visit the steak was sent back twice. the manager did offer a dessert (which I couldn't eat). he tried and was pleasant, but I wanted a steak medium rare- not a dessert.

    I food was delicious. It came exactly as I ordered. I had no issue nor did I get sick afterwards. I ordered off the Gluten free menu. I had the steak, loaded mashed potatoes with no bacon and steamed veggies.

    I ordered mashed potatoes and a rib eye from their gluten free menu. I ended up getting sick. I don’t think the kitchen understands allergy’s.

    **UPDATE: Returned to give them another chance. Halfway through dinner, my daughter noticed a French fry on my plate underneath my ribs. It appears to have come from one of the other non gluten free plates. I would not go back. Although they do their best to avoid cross contamination, my last visit makes me question how safe for celiacs. After ordering from GF menu and reiterating gluten free several times, the salad that I ordered without croutons (and repeated it) was contaminated. I got halfway through the salad before finding a crouton. I give them 3 stars for effort and because the manager was extremely apologetic, comped my meal and gave us a $20 coupon. Proceed with caution.

    They had a gluten-free menu with quite a bit on it, even dessert. My waiter seemed very aware of cross contamination protocol and let me know they wiped down the area, changed gloves, kept everything separate etc. I ordered ribs, baked potato and the dessert, and didn't get sick! Great experience.

    Outback Steakhouse has great steaks!! There are gluten free salad dressing options as well as dessert. The appetizers are pretty much the only items that are not gluten free on the menu.

    My son brought me here while we were visiting Orlando for a concert. It was literally a magical experience. Our server was amazing and took great care with my gluten free order. The manager, Jason, helped to make it a really special nice. He made sure my birthday dessert was gluten free and was so gracious to my son and I, we were both very impressed. Highly recommend!!

    Felt comfortable eating here. They have a gluten free menu and waiter was aware. Got steak, baked potato, grilled veggies. Their dessert was very tasty too. I asked how their brownie was gluten free and the server didn’t know. He came back and told me how they prepare it and use gluten free flour.

    Thanks so much for having a great Gluten-Free Menu! I stopped in after a 9 hour flight and the Bleu Cheese Wedge salad, baked potato, margarita & ribs really hit the spot! No reaction! Staff must be well trained & knowledgeable about cross contamination!

    I’m celiac and told the wait staff and was clear about the severity of the disease. I ordered the ribeye with salad and mashed potatoes (all of the special gluten free menu). Went home sick and the next day tested our leftovers with a nima tester. Came back positive for gluten. Can’t recommend this place to anyone.

    In short, salad was nothing special. Lettuce, old tomatoes, cheese, sprinkle of bacon. Not really attentive staff. Eat at your own risk. Waiter was non existent. Awaiting reaction...Wanted to have another place to eat. They have a huge gf menu!

    Staff was AMAZING and menu is pretty extensive for being GF in this area. I ordered from the GF menu and my husband did not. After putting the order in, our waitress came back to talk to me because my husband ordered food that was not GF and she wanted to be sure that I knew what could make me sick. Can't wait to go back!

    Had no problems. Good food and no reaction. Happy to say it is the same as any other Outback I’ve eaten at across multiple states in terms of gluten aware. One of the things I’ve taken to since a server offered it last year is to order the Caesar salad with crumbled egg instead of croutons.

    When I asked waiter to let a manager know I have Celiac, which is a severe allergy to gluten, the manager came to my table to reassure me about their safe practices to avoid cross-contamination. I’m currently eating according to the AIP Protocol, which is much more difficult. They were awesome to accommodate all of my specifications. I had a steak and shrimp seasoned with only salt, a salad with no gluten, dairy, or nightshades, and a sweet potato with just cinnamon sprinkled on top. It was a great feeling to eat out while on AIP! I didn’t get sick at all.

    Host did not really have clue but went in and spoke to server and he was very knowledgeable about celiac and ensuring no cross contamination. He said most things on regular menu can be made gluten free even though there is a dedicated gluten free menu. I had salmon and my 9 year old had chicken off Joey's menu and we both enjoyed our meals. We had chocolate thunder down under for dessert and that was delicious. Nil issues later.
