Ordered a steak, potato, and salad off of the gluten free menu and the salad came out with croutons. When the bartender saw me picking them off she said “oh you don’t like croutons?”

With the exception of the croutons the rest of my meal was fine.

I read all the previous reviews and decided to take a chance.

Bad idea. It has been almost two weeks since I ate there and I am still very sick. If you have celiac disease you should stay

away from this place.

Had ribs from here that were very good! I was informed that even if you order something from the gluten free menu, it's not necessarily going to be gluten free unless you also inform them that you need gluten free. So make sure you tell your server that you need your meal to be gluten free and you'll be alright.

The food tasted good but I believe they gave me a steak that was from the full menu and not the gf menu. Normally I pick up on seasonings that are suspicious but I did not and ate it without question. I was sick for 10 days. If ever I go back I will be more proactive.

We ate here and nobody got sick! My daughter is a very super sensitive celiac so we hardly ever go out to eat. Her brother has celiac too. We were out of town for a tournament and I spoke with the manager on the phone and at the restaurant and they reassured me they would take precautions. She had the grilled salmon, baked potato and house salad. My son had grilled shrimp and a 1/2 rack of ribs. We all loved our meals and are thankful nobody had any reactions. We made sure we went early, (4:30) so the chef wouldn’t be as busy.

Second time I ended up sick at this establishment. Ordered gluten free, started with salad. Third bite discovered small bits of croutons all through the salad. They must have just picked the larger pieces off. Ended up getting sick in the parking lot.NOT OK.

Good gluten free menu. They did bring my side salad with croutons but quickly brought me a new one when I reminded them it needed to be gluten free. The main meal (Alice Springs Chicken) was good.

Went to outback last night and was definitely sick before I even left the restaurant. I mentioned that I have celiac disease before ordering. Plus the food was not quality. Didn’t enjoy eating it and definitively didn’t enjoy the effects I’m feeling the next day. This is the second time I’ve gotten sick from eating at this location.

As a Celiac the only truly safe food here is the steamed veggies and baked potato. They are very good and a decent choice when eating out with non-celiacs. The chance for cross-contamination and/or gluten in the other dishes is risky.
