Vegan Options at Outback Steakhouse (Updated 2023)

Outback Vegan

When looking for vegan options at Outback Steakhouse, we couldn’t determine which, if any, are vegan so we reached out to them and confirmed they do have a few.

They sent us a completely vegan and vegetarian menu with a good amount of detail. Jackpot!

So, while we’re pretty excited that the thought and effort has been put into making a guide for vegetarians and vegans, the actual options themselves are a bit bare. You have a few salads that can be modified or sides. 

You absolutely can put together a meal though if you happen to be at an Outback Steakhouse; especially one that will probably be pretty healthy.

Ryan’s Pick: It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to an Outback. Not gonna lie though, I used to love those Bloomin’ Onions. If we end up at an Outback I’ll update here.

Jen’s Pick: I haven’t been to an Outback in at least 10 years but am incredibly happy to know there is an option if we happened to be at one.
