great food and they try act like they try very hard not to cross-contaminate... I do have to say though that one time I ate there it looked like croutons had been accidentally put on then picked off of my gf salad (crumbs)... the manager came out and apologized etc.
I love my local Outback. They are fabulous about dealing with allergy & gluten issues, including making dessert substitutions when I can't eat what's offered with a deal (which they absolutely don't have to do by policy, so I think it rocks that they do). If something is wrong (like a steak being the wrong temp), 99% of the time, a manager brings the food out to check on you & make sure it's correct. I think I've had 1 unfriendly server there (which is pretty amazing these days at most places), and I love the management team. Overall, the store is always very clean (though I'd love to see them do away with the air freshener in the bathroom because it can be cloying & it makes it tricky to breathe inside). The reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because of something another review points out: the lack of the GF fryer. They had one, and they had amazing fries. I frequently bragged to people that our Outback had gone above & beyond corporate's GF menu & had purchased a GF fryer out of their store budget. Unfortunately, it broke earlier this year, and as of a couple of weeks ago they still had not replaced it. I understand that it is an extra expense, but I was truly hoping they'd replace it. That fryer was often the deciding factor for us if we were debating between a couple of restaurants, because it was one of the few places I could get fries. Since they've not replaced it, we've not eaten there as often as we had in the past, because some of the point of spending the extra money to go to the nicer restaurant was so I could have something I really miss. Given how amazing the store is with allergen info & avoiding cross-contamination, I highly recommend going. The GF menu is pretty impressive, and the food is always great. I'd be back to giving them 5 stars again if they would replace that fryer.
At one time, they had a gf fryer for fries but decided to do away with it. This was a huge let down for my children who very rarely get to order fries when we eat out!
Safe place for Celiacs and their food is pretty tasty too. Been here many times without any sickness following.
My son has celiac disease and is very sensitive to cross contamination. He has enjoyed about 20 delicious meals at this location and has never had an issue. Highly recommend! Great management.
What a wonderful Gluten Free menu. The staff suggested the Cheesy Fry appetizer. It is save since they have a dedicated fryer. OH MY-that was good. Our waitress told us about the burgers and the gluten free buns!! Right, they have gluten free buns!!! The dessert was great too. A few days later and I am still feeling fine so no cross-contamination!! I give this a three thumbs up!! Wait....oh....I only have two thumbs..can I borrow yours? :-)
Yes, it's a chain, which I'm always cautios of, but this Outback goes above and beyond! They provide bread, hamburger buns, and their fries are gluten free! An exclusive menu I've only found at this Outback, plus great service.. I highly recommend! :)
As far as GF goes they have been awesome! We’ve been twice this week bc there are few GF friendly restaurants in the area. They have a decent GF menu and the servers are very considerate and knowledgeable. They double-checked my fiancée’s order both times (different servers) and recommended the GF dessert, which held up to their description. It’s pretty good especially for a GF brownie. We will probably go back again before we leave bc we don’t have to worry about her having options. In general, it’s a chain restaurant so the food is decent enough. What really sets them apart is the service. Ours has been great both times, no just with the GF consideration but in general. Both guys were so nice and polite and energetic.
Outback is our tried and true, reasonably priced safe dining option while travelling. My partner is highly sensitive, so even slight cross contamination is an issue. He's had no trouble at this Panama City location after eating here a dozen times. It isn't a dedicated GF restaurant, so you have to take the usual precautions (notify waitstaff, don't touch the table or let your utensils sit on it, etc.) But they do a decent variety of GF food, including the pecan flour brownie in the chocolate thunder dessert. Ask for the gluten free menu at the host stand, but get a regular menu as well, since the GF menu doesn't include prices or some info (like steak cut sizes).
Normally Outback is our go-to, and my highly sensitive partner with Celiac has had no trouble with them in five different states. This location in Dothan is the exception. We started stopping there as part of a 6 hour monthly business trip to Atlanta, and in four visits he was glutened three times. Would rather eat cold lunchmeat from a local grocery store than stop there again.
Gluten free menu has everything from beverages to desserts. Waitress offered it when I asked, also available online. There doesn’t seem to be a possibility for cross contamination. I ordered a Cobb salad, no croutons, with gluten free ranch. Will definitely go back.
Our waitress was NCGF so she was very knowledgeable. The food was great, a bit pricy but wonderful quality. The wait time and shear business of it made it near impossible for her to be attentive. My stomach is hurting a bit already so I am not sure if it is Celiac friendly or not.
I have eaten here a handful of times with no issues. They have a gluten free menu and are aware of celiac. Be cautious when ordering a salad, sometimes they do forget and put on croutons. I personally haven’t eaten a salad here, due to that reason. Good steak and rib/chicken combo.
The staff was knowledgeable about cross-contamination (which seems rare lately). I ordered salmon, a baked sweet potato and a side salad (no croutons) for an appetizer. It was delicious, and no reaction! The waitress also informed me their brownie is flour-less and GF!! I was too full to try, but will next time. This is at their new location.
We did take away. Remington helped us and was personally aware of gluten sensitivity. I was not sick after. Check your takeaways before leaving any Outback, it seems they always miss or add something. In this case we got bacon on my husbands potato and I'm allergic to pork. Glad it was his since he isn't allergic but he doesn't eat pork as a choice so we would have been happier if it was left off as requested. I'd return but be more mindful at pickup to review the food given. Thanks Remington!
Instructed waiter of my celiac disease. He got me a menu but when took my ordered seemed less than concerned over my effort to ensure everything was in fact gluten free. Had a steak, baked potato, and asparagus. 3 hours later i was doubled over with worst stomach pain I have ever had
Before ordering off the gluten free menu I let the waitress know that I had celiac disease and I would really appreciate any precautions that could be taken in the kitchen to prevent cross contamination. The waitress rolled her eyes at me and didn’t note my gluten allergy on the ticket. I did not feel comfortable eating here, didn’t eat the meal I ordered, and will not be coming back.
Lots of Gluten Free choices here and staff seemed well educated and attentive to my Celiac concerns. I explained that I will get sick and that it is not just a preference, reviewed the need to clean the grill and not cross contaminate. I have not had any problems here and will definitely be back!
