I was so happy when I went to outback steakhouse and the lady told me there was a gluten free menu. Then the manager came to talk to us and he said they make sure that all the equipment is gluten free and the chef's change gloves and utensils before cooking anything gluten free. Love it.

Outback is one of my treats when I get out of town. It's a pleasure to eat like everyone else does.

I just ate there tonight, the first time I've eaten out in months, and it was great! And my tummy still loves me after!

I used to hate eating there, because I always got sick, and figured they just had sanitation problems, but I <3 Outback, now~

BUTTER! :huh: Butter doesn't contain gluten, or does it? I know it is dairy, but what are the other concerns with butter? thanks mark

Butter doesn't contain gluten but some restaurants use a seasoned-butter blend.

At Outback, the butter they use on the vegetables is a seasoned butter which contains gluten.

The butter they use on baked potatoes and that they serve with bread is pure butter and is safe.

We do take-out from Outback more than we dine in. One of the last times we ate in, my baked potato was different...more mashed than an actual baked potato....anyone else ever had this?

We are going to eat at the Outback Steakhouse this week :) I called to make sure they had the gluten free menu and they were very helpful and assured me they did.

We are so looking forward to a nice meal out...it's been months since we went out without the kids!

2 thumbs up for Outback Steakhouse. Everyone there was so welcoming and wanted to do whatever they could to make us happy. I think one of the managers came over to talk to us too and gave us all the names of the people who we could talk to about any concerns we might have about their gluten free foods. She said the chef would also be happy to make an accomidations as well. They were very professional and the food was great!

Anyone have their dessert? They had one gluten free dessert but we declined. I think my husband was a little worried that it couldn't possibly be gluten free. The chocolate cake type of thing. I wanted to ask the ingredients..maybe I'll go to their website and check it out.

Anyway...it was a great experience. Highly recommend the Outback Steakhouse in Appleton, Wisconsin> :)

I just went back to Outback for the first time in ages... the gluten-free menu was different from the last time I was there and the Blue Cheese dressing is no longer gluten-free. Bummer! I had ranch but it tasted like mayo to be honest.

Next time I go I'm going to bring my own Boar's Head blue cheese to mix in the ranch dressing!

Love the alice springs chicken! We eat there all the time and have become regulars. The owner ordered Redbridge beer for us. It is a real treat to eat out and feel safe when ordering. Our last visit we had a waitress with Celiacs.

I haven't had the brownie dessert yet, because it has pecans in it and I'm allergic. But my local OBSH (Gresham, OR) was so cool; they said if I called ahead, they would make me a special batch of brownies for the gluten-free dessert and leave out the pecans! I intend to do this for my birthday.

So far I have had really good luck with all the waiters at Outback accommodating not just my gluten intolerance but all my other food allergies as well. And they do it cheerfully!

If you read the gluten-free menu carefully, it's very specific about what parts of each dish you need to ask the waiter to order differently. And they're VERY good about substituting things if there's a part of the meal you can't do. The Hearts of Gold fish is very good with the honey mustard sauce, by the way. :-)

I want to give a special thank you to our local Outback Steakhouse, here in New London, CT. Our server was only 3 months on the job and it was obvious, the owners took the time to educate him. What a wonderful person.

The plates/silverware was one of my concerns with eating out, so I was happy to learn that the cooks/servers have to physically go to another room behind the kitchen to get designated plates, silverware and gluten free ingredients.

They're coming out with some new gluten free recipies in the near future :-)

This was the 4th time I've eaten at an Outback Steakhouse and every time, the service has been oustanding, the food is yummy and most importantly, SAFE. Way to go guys! :D

What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?
