I'm a big fan of Outback, but my experience at this particular restaurant wasn't great. Among other things, we were informed as we went to pay that they don't honor the AARP discount on Fridays and Saturdays. So, yaknow, there's that.

Our daughter had the kids steak with fruit as a side and a lemonade. She ate every bite and loved it and had no reactions.

Definitely not celiac friendly. We did a take out order after speaking with a manager about celiac. He assured us we were in good hands. Picked up the order and looked in the bag. On top was the salad... filled with croutons. Manager apologized and assured me the rest he personally oversaw and it was safe. While waiting for my new salad I checked the rest of the order. Our shrimp was served on top of bread!!! Manager couldn't have cared less! Still made me pay for food we threw away. Thankfully my credit card company fought the charge!!!

I was skeptical to come here after reading the reviews but it wasn't too bad. Overall the food was great and didn't make me sick. It just took longer than expected. They need to train their waiters better on gluten free.

The waiter we had seemed pretty new and he did not know anything about gf. I asked for the sirloin and shrimp off the gf menu and it came with the shrimp on a piece of bread so they had to redo it. The manager did come out and personally apologize for getting it wrong which was nice. When it came back out I had double the mashed potatoes and double the veggies.

Celiac disease family. We came here excited to learn that the chocolate thunder brownie was always gluten free. However, when we tried lunch items off of the dedicated gluten free, it became clear within an hour of eating that we had been gluten-ed here. The staff seems knowledgeable and it was encouraging to see a gluten free menu but that didn’t save us. Will not be eating here again.

Update: We have been several times in the last year since my original review. I've been safe every single time, no matter the meal I order. We ate at this particular location a few months back and somewhere along the line, I consumed gluten, as evidenced by my quick body response. We went back a week or so ago and I had my staple (Alice Springs chicken) and an alcoholic beverage (of which I did copious phone/Internet research because I'm one of those that can't have distilled beverages if the starting grain is gluten-containing). I'm happy to say I was not cross-contaminated this visit and our waitress took excellent care of me. Outback is almost always a safe place for me to eat and instances of contamination are very few for me. If I'd gotten sick a second time here, I probably wouldn't go back.

I had to pull up the gluten free menu from the website because waiter never brought us one after we asked for it. Made it known that I was gluten free and ordered all GF items and within 5 minutes of eating I was sick and very bloated. They need to do more training with waitstaff and cooks that this is not a fad diet.

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.

Last time we ordered from here, it was take-out only due to COVID. I usually never get sick if I order the gluten free items on the menu. We found out then that they have a dedicated fryer during lunchtime, but not after 5pm. Guess I will only be going there for lunch, or not eating their fried items. (Good thing I avoid anything fried when I eat out.)

Went there with my husband and celiac son. I always eat gluten free in case my celiac son would like to taste any of the food off my plate, so I order my food like if I was celiac too. The waiter had no clue what gluten free was and went and got another person. She came and said that they used to have a gluten free menu, but that they no longer have one. She said I could tell her more or less what we want and we could try to get it gluten free. She gave the example of like taking the croutons off a salad. And of course—NOOOOOOOOOOO. I was immediately scared that they were not aware of cross contamination. It was a scary experience and we did end up ordering a steak for my son with a baked potato. We decided we would never go back to that restaurant. It was just too risky.

I have dined here dozens of times since 2006. When I had surgery at Albany memorial hospital in 2006 and the hospital kept trying to feed me gluten (I am a very sensitive celiac) this restaurant gave me my meal for free when they learned my family was bringing the food to me in the hospital. They have also never made me ill even once.

This location does not take Gluten free seriously. Last night my family visited and I’ve been ill ever since. Ordered off the GF menu and expressed my issues to the waiter ahead of time. My first salad plate had croutons all over it, the second plate had bread crumbs on the rim of the plate. Then my entree came out with a piece of a French fry, purposefully mixed inside of my sweet potato hidden under the butter and cinnamon. Horrible experience!

This Outback is awesome! I also skip dairy most of the time so I order steak with no butter brush or seasoning, plain steamed brocolli and plain sweet potato. Just add salt and pepper at the table and I don't have to worry about any gluten sneaking into seasonings.

Food was yummy. The whole drive there, I was saying I was gonna have the Alice Springs Chicken (hands down my favorite at Outback) and then when we sat, I decided I actually wanted a ribeye steak. The ribeye was soooooooo good. It definitely made up for the so-so broccoli. My baked potato was yummy, although they skimped on the toppings a bit. The broccoli would have been better if I'd had the option for the cheese sauce, as during the pre-covid days.

This restaurant makes it clear that it is not a gf kitchen and that there exists the possibility of cross- contamination.

There is a current GF menu available on their website. I have been to this location of Outback Steakhouse many times without any problems. I typcially have enjoyed one of their signature steaks with sweet potato and a side salad made without croutons with one of their gluten-free dressings. The waitstaff and bartenders have always been very knowledgeable and helpful. I can't speak to other locations, but this one has been tried and true for me.

The staff seem to have been trained on gluten free prep and on the menu items. They always verbally confirm your order and modifications.

The food is always tasty. The lobster, chicken, baked potatoes and the brownie dessert are my favorites. I love that they offer a dessert option that’s so good. My only wish is that they’d invest in gluten free bread to bring out to the table, it’s always awkward watching everyone else eating bread.

Don’t order a salad. Twice now I’ve had them pick off croutons that were added in error, which will still make me very sick!!! I love their salad but I can’t take the chance.
