Usual GF menu

Our server brought bread to our table and she then apologised that she hadn't seen the GF menu I was reading and was concerned I may have been 'infected' with the bread - I assured her that I would not have inhaled the gluten and my husband would enjoy eating the bread. I thought this showed good allergen awareness even if she had confused transmission with that of a nut allergy

Things have changed. For years prior to the pandemic I was able to eat here safely with knowledgeable staff. Went for the 1st time in almost 2 years & it was awful. I avoid dairy as well & my salad I ordered came out with cheese so they brought me a new 1 & my oldest ate the 1st salad. Well, the new 1 had a noodle at the bottom & hidden until my last bite. I got so sick. None of the food was good. It was gross old salad, the steak & shrimp were terrible. I’ll never go back.

I went here 4 times and had a great experience with Lizzy as our server. Understood and made me feel very comfortable that food would be safe. Unfortunately, had a male server last Saturday that did not seem to listen and served me a salad with croutons. I was very disappointed and was not able to enjoy the rest of the meal.

Very professional and well done. I had their gf menu in my hand and the waitress asked if it was ok to bring bread to the table. I didn't have to explain anything about celiac, they knew the issues already with cross contamination. I will definitely be coming back here again!

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.
