    The waiter was very sweet and let me know that my food would be prepared separately and that the kitchen would be alerted of an allergy. Had a lot of options. The waiter still brought bread to the table is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

    Not many options for a celiac vegetarian but that's totally understandable since it's a steakhouse!! Good service and the chocolate thunder from down under is soo good.

    Great place to eat if you have celiac! I've never had a problem eating here and I am basically a GF lie detector test.

    They have a really large gluten free menu and the waitress said they change their gloves and wipe down their station when they mark that an order is gluten free.

    This was the first bad experience we've had at Outback. We were promptly seated, but had to wait 10 minutes for our waitress, while watching several waitstaff pass us by with no water on the table. The waitress we ended up with acted like someone who is on pills. Very odd behavior. The blooming onion was overcooked and greasy, but she did offer to bring another one. My ribs were delicious, but EXTREMELY fatty. My husband's quesadilla was overcooked. I don't know if this was an off day at this restaurant or if management is bad, but we won't return to this Outback.

    Got sick!! Had to send my salad back twice because they thought it was ok to just pick the croutons off and give it back to me. That should've been my warning to leave, but sometimes I just want to eat out.

    Service has been just awful the last three times we went. Super slow, just not worth the cold and poorly cooked steak. Used to love it there but really needs some better management.

    We have had positive experiences at all Outback locations. They are very accommodating. Food is always good. Sometimes kitchen staff tends to not read restrictions and will add butter and bread on the plate anyways but our server kept watch to ensure it was corrected before coming to us. They take accountability for their errors and make up for it. Great customer service.

    Ordered the ribs $ chicken dinner with loaded baked potato from gf menu. My meal was so good! Been many years since I've been to an outback. Waitress answered questions I had about cross contamination concerns. I learned manager is only person who cooks and handles food allergy orders here. Great place to dine!

    We compete here often and as always, you have to tell them immediately but they are usually very good at taking care of you. You would think it would be cheaper to eat Gluten Free at home but my Son is highly allergic to Coconut and our grocery bill is deplorable. They treat us like family and only have a problem once out of 9 visits and they corrected immediately. Just make sure on meat and baked potatoes that they use Salt and Pepper ONLY and NOT their seasoning packets.

    We have eaten here several times successfully. My son is a very sensitive celiac, so we all order gluten free to keep the residue off the table. The first time, the manager came out and said his sisters are celiac, so no worries. We really had a great experience, ordered ribs, baked potato, and gluten free chocolate thunder brownie. No ill effects. The second time, we had to tell the waitress twice not to bring the bread and I am pretty sure that she is the reason my son did get sick that time. The waitress just didn't understand. We will still try again, because the gf food is delish, but make sure to get a wait staffer in the know.

    Most accommodating place for gluten free people. Separate menu that actually looks like a menu and it seams like staff is trained in gluten sensitivities/allergies. To top it off they have some gluten free desert options. Been there a few times and never had an issue.

    Ordered gluten free caesar salad. I started to eat it as the top layer was only lettuce and cheese. As I got to the middle/bottom there were a couple croutons. Who ever prepared this just picked out the visible croutons.

    Went there on Mother's Day and then today on Father's Day. The manager (Megan) was fantastic and the owner even made our son's salad himself. The owner and the manager both came and checked on our meal throughout our time there. We don't eat out much due to our son having Celiac, but having gone to this Outback twice with no issues, we will be going back. Our waitress worked with the manager to ensure that every precaution was being taken to avoid cross contamination.

    They had a decent sized GF menu, but I got a little tummy ache when I got home for the night so I suspect there wasn't a gluten dedicated cooking area used. I'm not celiac so for me it'll only be some light aches, but just a heads up about those who are sensitive.

    In the past Outback has been a staple for places to eat when traveling, however the gluten free menu has gotten smaller. At this particular location, the staff didn't seem well informed. They were very polite and nice and they knew they had a gluten free menu but that was about it. After all was said and done, we did get sick after eating there.

    I just wanted to comment about policy at this Outback. I asked for and received a GF menu w/o any hesitation. My server took my order from the GF menu. Another person delivered my salad and announced that it had no croutons. then a third person delivered my meal and again announced it was GF. It is follow through like that , that gives you confidence that your food was handled properly.

    I have a newly found love for outback! not only is their steak and sweet potato with butter and brown sugar DELICIOUS, but they are very careful about ensuring gf. my meal was brought out with the bourbon glaze on top of my steak, which was NOT gf, but the manager immediately cane out and apologized and had a whole new plate made for me. while I was starving when my friends enjoyed their dinner, the manager and waitress were very apologetic and helpful.
