I decided to give it a try despite the bad reviews due to the recent good one. I got salmon with baked potato and a side salad. The food not only tasted bad but I got sick as well. Do not recommend. Only one of two outbacks that I have had problems with.
The Outback is the place to eat in Junction if you have Celiac. I have never gotten sick and have eaten here 10 times or more. The staff is friendly and never gives me that judgy look when I say I am GF, you know the one. :) The menu is great, my fav is the Alice Springs Chicken with a loaded baked potato. Feel free to enjoy Celiacs!
Mixed up my order three times. First gave me a side salad salad with a random piece of chicken in it. Then they gave me a dinner with gluten-filled rice. When I pointed out their mistake, they removed the rice and have me the same fish and veggies hat were already contaminated with gluten. The chefs and waiters obviously had no idea what celiac means. I love Outback, but was not impressed with this location!
They allowed my daughter to bring in her own bread and salad dressing!! Outstanding service and all our meals were superior!!!
Love the Alice Spring's GF chicken, and the yummy chocolate dessert!!
Outback was one of the first places to get gluten free dining correct. I used to enjoy eating at this chain because I knew I could trust my meal was going to be safe. I have never gotten sick at an Outback but within the last few years the quality of the food has gone down hill. The gluten free menu has shrunk in size and the price feels outrageous for a small steak and a pile of mashed potatoes.
They have a great GF menu with lots of choices. Our waitress was very familiar with celiac and gave us great info on how they mugs were cooked, etc. We all left happy with no subsequent tummy aches so Outback will for sure be on our list of places to eat out.
I was contaminated once out of several dinners here. Another time I was given the wrong meal which came loaded with fries. We were able to clear it up quickly and the manager made sure the entire meal was re-made properly and they wound up comping the meal. I’ve been very satisfied with my meals and the attentiveness to allergies we’ve received so far. (How did I get contaminated? I’d ordered shrimp with my steak one time, asking for no seasoning, just to be sure. It came out with seasoning and I stupidly ate it, not thinking.)
Outback is a fun restaurant if you aren’t a cilac. Every time we have gone there we usually bump into a gf mixup. Sometimes they get it right but sometimes they don’t.😾😼I will List it as cilac friendly but it is not the best option for gf food on Staten Island
while our waiter was very good, the food was not. I ordered from the GF menu and informed the server. I had to send back my steak twice because it was like leather, and ultimately ate only veggies and part of a potato. I began feeling ill before we left the restaurant. I considered it a bad experience.
I chose to eat here because I usually don't have a problem eating at Outback locations. This time my food was delicious and steak was cooked perfectly, but unfortunately I was contaminated which was not great timing since we went to the hockey game following dinner.
Food was delicious! However, when my salad came out and I asked to confirm it was gluten free, the person who brought it to me looked like she didn't know and didn't care. Upon inspection, it was obvious the croutons had just been taken off the salad, leaving crumbs behind. Our waitress gladly got me a new one, but it seems like they should take more precautions when it's made clear that an item NEEDS to be gluten free due to celiac disease.
Ate here twice, no reactions. The sirloin was the best steak I've ever had at an Outback. It was cooked perfectly, but a bit too spicy for me. Potatoes were a bit salty, but I am not a big salt user, so they might be fine for most people. Had Alice Springs chicken the other time. Slightly overdone.
Nothing says, "happy 40th birthday" like being the victim of cross contamination! 😭 We researched online prior to going out to eat at a restaurant in Shenandoah tonight. Outback Steakhouse's website claims that it "is serious about gluten-free" so we decided to give it a go. I was pleased to see so many items on their gluten free menu. My husband and I split a gluten free Caesar salad as an appetizer since there were no other GF appetizers on the menu. I ordered the Alice Springs Chicken and a fully loaded baked potato. I was very clear with the waiter that I needed him to let the kitchen know that I have celiac disease and definitely needed a gluten free meal. He assured me that he would and that Outback was serious about gluten free. Along with dinner, I ordered a house margarita that I only took a few sips of because the flavor wasn't as good as my favorite one elsewhere but I didn't complain. Instead, I ordered an Angry Orchard to go with my meal. I only drank half of it because it tasted like beer. I also only ate half of my meal because I started feeling nauseous and bloated before I could finish it. We promptly paid and left the restaurant. An hour later, I look like I'm 6-7 months pregnant and am absolutely miserable! I contacted the restaurant and spoke to a manager named Kelly. She apologized profusely stating that her roommate also had celiac disease, could sympathize, and offered to comp my meal. I told her that I appreciated the gesture, but wanted her to know that I felt obligated to let others in the GF Foodies Facebook group and on the Find Me Gluten Free app know about my negative experience tonight. As promised, here's my review of the Outback Steakhouse on the feeder of I45 in Shenandoah; buyer beware!
We ate there today and food and staff were both a 5! Incredible!!
I've never had a gluten issue here, but they always overcook my steak. Don't order lobster at this location either, it's usually rubbery. The Alice Springs Chicken is always good though! Just wish they had a dedicated fryer for French fries.
Outback in Norwood is great at ensuring the staff is educated on gluten. I have eaten there at least 100 times over the last few years. I can't say all Outbacks are good like Norwood because there not. Food is good, selection is good, price is good, I feel safe eating there.
I am able to eat at any Outback in the country and not get sick, but I cannot say that is true with the Annapolis Outback. Ordered steak, sweet potato and broccoli. Our server didn't seem to care about my gluten issues, and made himself very scarce. Aside from gluten issues, my steak was over cooked and awful. I was sick as a dog before we made it home, horrible cramps and then you know.. usual celiac problems. I think it was the sweet potato or a topping they put on the sweet potato. Will never return to this Outback again.
Had steak and shrimp with a salad and.. dessert.. never do I have dessert.. absolutely fantastic.. owner came over and talked to us about the steps he has taken to be celiac friendly.. it was nice to be comfortable ordering dinner.. they have a gluten free menu , you will need a regular menu for the prices but well worth it..
Came here as a family with our daughter with Celiac. We always order her meal first. We've been to Outback many times and this was the first time the waitress had a blank look on her face when I mentioned Celiac; clearly she had no idea what I was talking about which was disappointing. Don't think we'll be back given that there are other much safer options.
The staff went above and beyond to make my meal safe and WONDERFUL!! Our server, Kelly, helped my with my order so that I got exactly what I wanted and then consulted with the manager who delivered my meal to the table to be sure that it was perfect. They also let me know it was prepared in a separate area of the kitchen to avoid any cross contamination. They were super friendly and helpful and I wish I could take them everywhere with me!!
