Enjoyed a dinner with friends at this Outback. I had the Alice Springs Chicken with a loaded baked potato. They have a Gluten Free menu which can be found on-line or asked for when dining there. Waitress was knowledgeable about gluten free menu.

My server was knowledgeable about gluten free and even steered me away from the pink lemonade I asked about because there is a food starch in it from an unspecified source on the box of mix they use. Between that and the fact they have a separate gluten free menu, I felt safe enough to order.

I ordered Alice Springs chicken, mashed potatoes, asparagus, a side of grilled shrimp, and a glass of water. My server caught that they put my GF side of grilled shrimp on a piece of bread and had them remake me shrimp before they even brought out our entrees.

All this made me feel like they know what they're doing. It was delicious. But, I started getting my gluten exposure symptoms on the way home. I tried to shrug it off, but when I was awoken in the early hours with more violent gluten exposure symptoms, I knew they'd gotten me with cross contact.

This has been exactly like when I was taken out by a single chocolate truffle that happened to have barley malt powder in it (realized it after the fact, totally my fault), so I know it's my glutened symptoms.

I've been so ill, that I will not risk eating at Outback again.

We ate here and nobody got sick! My daughter is a very super sensitive celiac so we hardly ever go out to eat. Her brother has celiac too. We were out of town for a tournament and I spoke with the manager on the phone and at the restaurant and they reassured me they would take precautions. She had the grilled salmon, baked potato and house salad. My son had grilled shrimp and a 1/2 rack of ribs. We all loved our meals and are thankful nobody had any reactions. We made sure we went early, (4:30) so the chef wouldn’t be as busy.

Second time I ended up sick at this establishment. Ordered gluten free, started with salad. Third bite discovered small bits of croutons all through the salad. They must have just picked the larger pieces off. Ended up getting sick in the parking lot.NOT OK.

Good gluten free menu. They did bring my side salad with croutons but quickly brought me a new one when I reminded them it needed to be gluten free. The main meal (Alice Springs Chicken) was good.
