Update:actually went back 4 times in late 2020/early 2021 and got glutened 3/4 times. I’m certain there is an undeclared allergen in either the steak seasoning or salad dressing. Only time I did not get sick was when I had a baked potato with just sour cream. 2016 review:Hit or miss, recently a total miss. Go to Firebirds across the street instead. I had better luck at this location two years ago compared to recently; hence 2 stars rather than 1. Salad had a single crouton on it and evidence that another had been picked off. I sent it back and stressed I have Celiac and please be careful. Brought me another and started eating and saw there were crumbs on the cucumbers. Then they brought my steak out on the same plate as my husband's fries, which are not GFree at all (we were sharing the steak and I had specified it needed to be in its own plate, the fries were specifically ordered as a separate order). I asked the manager and she said the kitchen staff didn't know and she would get us new fries. That wasn't the issue, so clearly she did not understand either which is frightening. I anticipate possibilities for cross contamination at such places, but total inability to even plate the food safely is ridiculous. Needless to say, 40 minutes later I was in pain. Too many errors, I have no confidence in their ability to take allergies seriously.

Just went to outback for the first time last night since I've been diagnosed with celiac disease. I had called ahead to ensure they make accommodations for individuals who have celiac. The manager informed me that they do and additionally that all of their staff are required to take an annual online course on how to service those who are allergic to gluten. When I arrived with my party of 6 to the restaurant, I was provided with a gluten free menu by my waiter and I also reminded him to inform the chef of my inability to have gluten (and cross contamination issues). I ordered the filet minion (medium rare) with broccoli. Wow-it was cooked to perfection! I am extremely satisfied with my meal. Will be returning again soon.

The outback always has great steaks. They really take gluten free serious. I wish they changed the menu up though they could potentially make some appetizers gf if they had a gluten free fryer but they don't. The menu is small but always good
