Gluten free menu with quite a few options. I had a smothered chicken that came with a mustard sauce. It was very good.

Outback on Alpine continues to impress. Brought my food out separate from my wife’s. Had ribeye, baked potato with back, and broccoli. No butter on baked potato as requested. Thunder down under available if you can have dairy. Total confidence.

I have gone here for years and they have been one of the few places I have never gotten sick at from gluten contamination! The service is always wonderful and they are always careful with my food and it ends up tasting great! We will definitely keep returning.

This location has dedicated GF fryers for fries. Not all Outback locations have this. Staff are fairly knowledgeable, but it's good to ask and verify. Some dressings are home made and are not safe. Double check when asking.

This location has a gluten free menu and the staff were very friendly and seemed to take precautions, but it was very apparent that the kitchen did not. Definitely had issues after this one.

Called in a curbside pick up order so my husband could grab it on the way home. Asked if they could prevent cross-contamination as I have Celiac. The guy taking the order said that they know all about how to avoid that & would mark our order “gluten allergy” to be sure it was safe. I ordered the 6 oz sirloin & shrimp, mashed potatoes, & a house salad w/ranch. My husband got an 11 oz center cut sirloin, mashed potatoes, & fresh veggies. They left the croutons off of my salad for me, packaged everything carefully, & didn’t give my husband bread to be on the safe side. When he picked it up, they explained the lack of bread & told him they could package some up for him separately if he wanted.

I've ordered takeout a few times. I've got sick each time. I'm not sure why, but I've had issues. The food was not great or dry and highly overpriced.
