Vegan Options at Outback Steakhouse (Updated 2023)

Outback Vegan

When looking for the vegan options at Outback Steakhouse, we couldn’t find any so we reached out to them. To our (pleasant!) surprise we heard back rather quick.

They sent us a complete vegan and vegetarian menu with a crazy amount of detail. Jackpot!

So, while we’re pretty excited that the thought and effort was put into making a guide for vegetarians and vegan, the actual options themselves, well, you can see for yourself.

Per Outback Steakhouse: Approved Vegan menu items EXCLUDE: eggs, dairy, fish, shellfish, mollusks, honey, gelatin, and animal-based rennet used in cheese making. Fried foods are excluded due to cross-contact with animal protein in shared fryers.

All vegan/vegetarian menu items are prepared in the same kitchen area where non-vegan/vegetarian items are prepared. Our dietitians have reviewed and approved the following menu items and modifications for vegan/vegetarian selections based on the most current recipes and ingredient information from our food suppliers.

Additionally, our culinary team will strive to accommodate your special dietary needs to these currently offered meals.

Please be aware none of our food items are certified vegan/vegetarian. Normal kitchen operations involve cross-contact with other foods and, therefore, we are unable to guarantee that any menu item is completely free of animal product and assume no responsibility for guests with dietary restrictions.

Our Picks

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.
