Waitress was very sweet, but not very attentive. I ordered a Blue Cheese Pecan Chopped Salad with my meal after asking a lot of questions to determine if it would be safe for me to eat. I ordered GF dressing, a vinaigrette instead. When asked if it was GF, she said it was. It was not. Salad also had something crunchy on it under the lettuce. I started to have the telltale symptoms - puffy throat, itchy, etc. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I caught it early enough to keep from using the epipen thank goodness! Very disappointed.

The first couple of times I ate there were great. After that, not so much. The staff including the managers are not knowledgeable. After having to return my food to be remade on 3 separate occasions because it contained gluten even after talking to my waitresses about it before ordering, I've stopped going. The food tastes good but when you have to eat after your table mates or their food is cold by he time you get a safe Oder, it's not worth it.

Everything was great as usual. Love that this is a safe place for me to eat as a celiac.

Hector helped us and got it right. We got the Rib Eye gluten free and it was excellent. No sign of any reaction from an extremely sensitive Celiac. Two could easily split that steak.

Very disappointed. Usually an outback is my go-to place when travelling. I always use a NIMA to test my food and the steak failed, the steak! I was able to eat the salad, but not the least, why?!! The manager had to come by as always, and wasn't surprised or apologetic either. Just like an "oh well". I would not recommend this place mainly for the manager's attitude and the fact that the steak failed. Salads I understand, but not the grill.

Gluten free menu with quite a few options. I had a smothered chicken that came with a mustard sauce. It was very good.

While I did not get sick the restaurant was disorganized and not very clean, with lots of crumbs on my seat and smushed French fries under the table. The staff seemed eager to help but not 100 percent clear on the concept of food that is safe for celiacs. A disappointment because Outback has been a reliable friend for business travel and we miss the Outback that used to be in Wheaton.

They have a nice gluten free menu but I got cross contamination somewhere on my steak and shrimp. My date ordered a gluten free salad and it came with croutons, I would not trust it if your celiac.

Staff was able to discuss the celiac protocol. There is a separate menu. The dessert was AMAZING- warm chocolate pecan brownie with chocolate fudge, ice cream, and whipped topping. It was 1500 calories, but it was worth every calorie!

I told the staff that I needed gluten free. The owners daughter is also gluten free, which makes what happened really surprising. I ordered a salad with no croutons. I ate about half of it before finding a crouton on the bottom.

I had a really nice experience here! I ordered the grilled chicken and my mom (also celiacs) ordered a sirloin. I’m also dairy-free so I asked for my chicken with no butter. The waitress accidentally pressed the wrong button so the manager came out to talk to me and told me they were remaking the chicken. Once I got it, it was very juicy and tasty.

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.

Great little gluten free menu. My son had the 6oz sirloin with a loaded baked potato and he was in heaven and ate all of his food. I had a 9oz sirloin with mashed potatoes. We then both got the desert “chocolate thunder from down under”. So good we will be back. Very knowledgeable about gluten free items. My son has Celiac Disease and I have EoE. Felt very comfortable eating there. Thank you 😊

They try, but too many issues. Got a salad and the dressing had a crouton at the bottom of the bowl. Not saying it was intentional, but either there was a crouton in their main dressing container or it fell into the bowl when they poured it. Neither make me confident.

Had a very nice meal here a couple of nights ago, they have quite an extensive GF menu so you don’t feel like you’re missing out. waiter himself admitted he wasn’t knowledgable about what was gluten free but he was careful to put my meal through following their procedures and my food was brought out separately to the rest of my party by a manager. One star knocked off because of the waiters limited knowledge but overall they know enough to keep you safe.

Nima tested Caesar salad was safe. Steak and baked potato with butter, cheese, and bacon was not safe. Second attempt with the manger supervising the cooking with just butter on potato was safe.

Awesome steak and mashed potatoes. The staff has been very accommodating every time I have been here. They will let you substitute something that is gluten free for the things that aren’t.

Found a crouton in the salad dressing not just once but twice (the replacement also had a crouton in the dressing). Turns out the croutons are located directly above the dressing vats and fall in. Recommend asking for the dressing to be poured directly from the container instead of the vat on the salad line. Specify that your ticket should be an allergy ticket. It is supposed to be treated differently but in my case was not. Ask for a manager to handle your ticket.

Sick before I left. My meal was messed up and I returned it and when I asked if the replacement was gf she replied “they all are”, which tells me they aren’t taking cross contamination seriously. Won’t be back

The Outback Steakhouse takes safe gluten free food very seriously. My waitress provided me with a GF menu and there were quite a few options. I had the chicken/ribs platter with mashed potatoes and it was delicious! The portion was good. I also indulged in the GF brownie which was amazing. Don’t leave without trying it!!! The waitress reassured me it was safe (because it was so good I had to ask...twice 🙈)! Would definitely return!!

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 :)

We visit this location frequently. The servers have been very accommodating. My son enjoys a steak that is cooked on the grill on tin foil. The fries are not gluten free.

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!
