Did a to go order. Wrote gluten free on everything. Had steak, shrimp, sweet potato, and the chocolate thunder dessert. Feel completely fine. I was blown away that I didn’t get sick. Very pleased with my experience!!

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.

I came here because of the gluten free menu. Come to find out the awesome manager Ferren's mother also has celiac. She knows everything about celiac and I had one of the best meals I've ever had. Cant wait to come back.

I have celiac disease and have eaten here many times over the last 10 years. Staff is very informed and the cooks are also very aware of the gluten issue. Great place to eat safely for celiacs.

I was on a trip to Splash Lagoon with family and was very hesitant to eat here as I get sick at one closest to where I live. I ate here with no issues! I got the wedge salad and loaded baked potato. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful!

This place was awful from our walk in to our overall experience! First thing when we got there the hostess told us that they only had one table available by the bar, but when I looked around only a few tables were occupied and mostly by the bar. She went on to instruct us that all the other tables were dirty!! My husband did not want to create a scene so we sat down and decided to order simple and had burgers mine with no bun. I did not get sick from the food or at least not yet but I will never return to this restaurant!! Very sad that the manager didn’t even try or get someone to clean off all those tables including wait staff!

I have always enjoyed Outback Steakhouse and when I was first diagnosed 20 years ago, Outback was one of the first restaurants that I knew of, to offer a gluten-free menu. AND, they offer a gluten free dessert. But my latest visit was disappointing. Not from a celiac standpoint, but from a overall taste experience. The steak was way over-seasoned and was very fatty.

So happy to find a safe GF place to eat near 95 during our trip from NY to SC. They had a GF menu and were very careful to note down our orders correctly. They even have a GF brownie for dessert but we did not have any.
