Ordered from the GF menu, salmon and baked potato with all toppings. Tested with my Nima and came back gluten found. Talked with Mgr and owner, explained that it could just be cc from spatula or shared cooking surface; they re-made dish with the salmon on foil and it tested all clear, GF! Great service and care! So appreciative that they genuinely worked to correct this and likely will employ this in future.

On Quality & Quantity

The food is always tasty. The lobster, chicken, baked potatoes and the brownie dessert are my favorites. I love that they offer a dessert option that’s so good. My only wish is that they’d invest in gluten free bread to bring out to the table, it’s always awkward watching everyone else eating bread.

Don’t order a salad. Twice now I’ve had them pick off croutons that were added in error, which will still make me very sick!!! I love their salad but I can’t take the chance.

They've expanded their options even more and I couldn't be happier. Staff understands precautions and I have not gotten sick from here.

I had the GF ribeye. It was obvious that they cooked the steak in aluminum foil. It was bland and tasteless. If this is how they cook gluten free then I would not recommend eating at Outback

I was excited to see a dedicated GF menu. Waitress seemed to be knowledgeable with the GF menu since she gave it to me but I had to mention several times I was ordering from this menu and how severe my intolerance was and could not have gluten nor cross contamination. She never acknowledge me. My items such as my bake potato cake closed with topping separately but there had to been contamination because I later became very sick!!!! Be aware.

They were busy and very overwhelmed. My food was cross contaminated. Very significant sickness following my meal here. I have had successful visits here before, however it seems like this Outback is poorly managed and getting worse with time. I will not risk it again at this location.

The server and chef took my celiac disease seriously and mentioned they make the salads in a separate area. They have a separate gluten free menu and are very clear about what does and does not have gluten. I've gone there multiple times and it's my favorite place in Duluth to get a steak.

Waiter Michael was very helpful, knowledgeable and mindful; he also notified the Mgr & chef. Grill was cleaned. Got Victoria’s filet mignon (no seasoning), house salad (no croutons) with balsamic vinaigrette, sweet potato, and chocolate thunder down under. All great. Asparagus is marinated, so I chose the house salad instead.

Ordered a Aussie Cobb Salad from the gluten free menu and expressed my need for gluten free. Our food was delivered by the manager and my salad had croutons on it. I don’t send food back so I didn’t eat while my family was able to enjoy their food. My husband wanted to leave but I insisted on letting them eat since we waited over an hour (Saturday night) and the kids were hungry and their food was fine. The manager did offer to make a new salad and told me he would make sure it was ok for me to eat but I am a one strike and it’s out.

Informed the waitress I was celiac and have gluten, peanut and soy allergies. She wrote it down and told the chef as well as checked all spices and sauce. Also was given a GF menu. I had grilled chicken, baked potato and vegetable. Was very good and had no issues. Will definitely return!

Look, it's an Outback. It's food is consistent with every other Outback you've ever been to in your life. The waitstaff is always very kind. The sweet potato is baked (boiled?) so much that it's watery, but maybe that's your thing! I eat it and enjoy it well enough. Their BBQ sauce is a 3 out of 5 if that matters to you lol

My daughter ordered the Alice springs chicken off the gf menu and specified that she needed it prepared gf for celiac. She ordered mashed potatoes for her side. When the waiter brought it out the side was fries. We told him that if the fries were gf, it was ok as she would actually prefer fries. He said yes, the fries are gf and he had specified it to the kitchen. He had also told us he had worked there for a long time. My daughter had already eaten two fries when he came back to the table and told her not to eat them, he needed to check on it. He came back out and grabbed her plate and said he was wrong, they are not gf.

While I felt okay eating there were things not great about this location. First, parking was difficult. Small lot. 7 spaces dedicated to take away. My salad had very little dressing. I had the pork chop and baked sweet potato which were good. Not the best Outback... not the worst either.

My extra sensitive daughter has had a great experience here both times. It is unnerving when the server doesn’t seem knowledgeable, but I could tell the last time that consult happened with the kitchen staff when she wasn’t sure. Good GF menu with several options.

Our 9yo daughter is celiac and has been sickened at a different Outback location. She chose to eat at this Outback in Chico for her birthday dinner. Armed with our Nima we took her. The wait staff was knowledgeable and sent a manager to speak with us as well. We tested her steak and potatoes with the Nima and no gluten was found. She enjoyed her dinner and went home happy and healthy!
