Food was fine and they seemed to understand when I mentioned celiac. However, I don’t usually have really clear cut indicators when I get “glutened” so I can’t say for sure but I think I got glutened here. Went a few days ago and have just felt crappy since then. Eat at your own risk,

Don't listen to GFJohnny!! He must not know what to expect from a steakhouse chain which had wonderful food btw. This outback was well versed in celiac awareness. The manager came to our table immediately to speak to us about our allergy concerns. She informed us that the owners wife has celiac and he makes sure every person in the restaurant down to the hostesses takes a training course in gluten allergies. So from the moment you ask for a gluten free menu the manager is already informing the waitress and kitchen staff of your allergy. The manager let us know that all of the seasonings they use are gluten free and the kitchen staff changes gloves, pans etc for your meal as well as cooks your food in foil to prevent cross contamination. When you order gluten free food your ticket comes up with gluten allergy in large red bold font so it is not missed and the owner as well as the manager was back in the kitchen to ensure everything was properly prepared for us. She was available to answer any and all questions we had and was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend stopping here we had a wonderful meal. Everyone was very friendly, wonderful waitress, clean restaurant, great food, all around amazing celiac friendly chain restaurant. If give 10 stars if possible they go above and beyond for their customers to ensure the best possible experience.

One five-star rating, eh? I wonder. Well, I decided to be generous and give outback 2 stars. One for serving somewhat edible food and the second for being early to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon without doing much of anything beyond offering to serve you a mediocre steak, potato and salad sans their mostly wheat-based gawd-awful seasonings. Folks, this is outback––that pseudo aussie accent somehow convinced a certain segment to pay a big price for fast-food served on a plate... by gum-popping teenagers working their first jobs. I guess it's better than starving when you're are out of options, but not much. Just go to a REAL restaurant and order a steak, potato and salad without croutons... last time I checked these items were inherently GF. If a steak is good, all you need is salt, pepper and some butter. I like teenagers just fine too, but they're better suited to mickey-d's. And they never get the accent right.

I spoke to a waitress who was very accommodating and helped me problem solve with the kitchen how to prevent any contamination with dairy or gluten. She was great and the food was good!

Unfortunately last 4 times I ordered I got bread even though I specifically asked not to include it, also could see by the seasoning of the steak that they didn’t follow my request for gluten free items.
