Waitress was clueless about gluten free. She brought bread to the table and put it down right in front of me. And then my Brisbane Caesar Salad came out without dressing and … wait for it … RAW SHRIMP. Not impressed. Not sure that I’ll ever go back to this restaurant.

I took HC13’s advice below and got the fire grilled shrimp (that sauce!!!) and asparagus, and I added a side salad with ranch. Amazing! This was in State College, PA, but I’ll be looking for an Outback close to home. Can’t wait for that shrimp again.

Knowledgeable and aware! They do have a gf menu, but I choose to get the Wood Fire Grilled Shrimp (without bread) with a side of Asparagus which are both shown as gf in allergen menu. Delicious!

Went there on Mother's Day and then today on Father's Day. The manager (Megan) was fantastic and the owner even made our son's salad himself. The owner and the manager both came and checked on our meal throughout our time there. We don't eat out much due to our son having Celiac, but having gone to this Outback twice with no issues, we will be going back. Our waitress worked with the manager to ensure that every precaution was being taken to avoid cross contamination.

Very accommodating. The wait staff was very well trained on gluten free on the menu. The food was delicious. I would definitely go back. I did not get sick.

Gluten free menu - with great options! Knowledgeable staff! We ate here twice on a trip to PSU with my Daughter, who has celiac, and she was great each time. The only thing that would make Outback better is a separate fryer so my daughter can once again have the Aussie cheese fries!! Will definitely eat here over and over.

Dietitian specifically recommended this restaurant at this location. When we spoke to the waitress about Celiac she wasn't very receptive (I felt like she was blowing me off) and I have poor confidence the food was made safe. This was our first time eating out since the diagnosis and this experience is discouraging. Unfortunately my son doesn't get symptoms when he has gluten so we'll never know.

Ordered my food making sure they know I have celiac and needs to be gluten free. The 1st time they come out and they have coconut shrimp on my plate and he like I have you gluten free food. We where like that’s coconut shrimp he like yes. I was like it’s not gluten free he goes are you sure it’s on the gluten free plate. So we sent it back. The next plate they added a sauce and I was like what sauce is that she like marmalade and I was like I don’t think it’s gluten free and she like umm I think your right.
