Outback Steakhouse Nutrition Basics

Outback Steakhouse Nutrition

As you can see from our Outback Steakhouse Nutrition Info table above, there are quite a lot of calories and fat on this menu. Steaks and deep-fried sides are only so healthy after all, and even when you move away from those items there is still a lot of energy packed into the Outback Steakhouse menu.

There are healthier options on this menu though, you just need to look a little harder in order to find them. For instance, you can skip the steaks and the ribs and stick with the chicken and the sides; you can order a big salad as your main meal instead of a smaller one on the side; and you can also skip dessert. Aussie food, just like American food, is big on calories, fat and everything else that is bad for you. But there are always healthier options, it’s just a case of whether or not you can avoid temptation and skip the fatty foods.

Outback Steakhouse Calories

So, just how do Outback Steakhouse calories compare to the calories you will find on other popular menus? Just how calorific is a big, plump steak in comparison to a burger, for instance? Let’s use one of their bigger and more popular surf and turf dishes, Sirloin and Coconut Shrimp, as an example.

This comes in at 870 calories in total. There is a marginal amount of fiber in there and the calories are made up primarily of protein and fat. In terms of calories, this 12 oz steak and extras is roughly the same as all of the following menu items. We have used different foods and different menus to give you an idea of how these calories stack-up:

You can stick with the Under 600 Calories menu if you’re worried about consuming too many calories and too much fat. This menu is available in all of their restaurants.

Outback Steakhouse Vegetarian Options

As you can see one our Outback Steakhouse Menu Prices page and our Outback Steakhouse Nutrition info table above, there is a lot of meat on this menu. However, there are still plenty of options for vegetarians. There are many potato dishes, cheese dishes and more. Most of the sides and the salads are okay, as are more of the desserts, but your options for the main meals are limited to just a handful.

Here is a list of all menu items we have been told are vegetarian. We will update this list if we hear of any new ones:

  • House Bread with Butter
  • Steakhouse Salad (order without Sirloin)
  • Aussie Cobb Chicken Salad (order without chicken or bacon)
  • House Salad
  • Fresh Steamed Broccoli
  • Fresh Steamed Mixed Vegetables
  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Baked Potato (order without bacon)
  • Sweet Potato with honey butter and sugar
  • Grilled Asparagus
  • No Rules Parmesan Pasta (order without protein options)
  • Mini Milkshakes
  • Sweet Adventure Dessert Sampler
  • Classic Cheesecake
  • Carrot Cake
  • Chocolate Thunder

Just bear in mind that with the grilled items there are some issues with cross contamination. This is usually the case and it’s something that many vegetarians don’t mind and something they are happy to put up with. If you’re not happy with cross-contamination then just ask the server which items run the risk of it.

Outback Steakhouse Vegan Options

As you might expect, there are far fewer vegan options on the Outback Steakhouse menu. However, there are still a few options. As with the vegetarian menu above, we have listed a few options below that we know are vegan and we will add to this as it grows or as we learn about more vegan dishes:

  • House Bread
  • Fresh Steamed Broccoli (order without seasoned butter)
  • Fresh Steamed Mixed Vegetables (order without seasoned butter)
  • Plain Baked Potato and Sweet Potato
  • House Salad (order without cheese and without croutons)

As with the vegetarian options, there might be some cross contamination issues. These are salads, so for the most part it’s okay. But they may use the same utensils and they may be handled by staff who have previously handled cooked meats and dairy products.

Outback Steakhouse Gluten-Free Options

Outback Steakhouse Calories

Outback Steakhouse is one of the many casual dining chains out there that has adopted a gluten-free menu. This is available in-store and you can also just look for the “GF” symbol on the traditional Outback Steakhouse menu.

There are actually many gluten-free options on this menu and they are available on all menus, from steak dishes to seafood dishes, sides, desserts steakmates and more. You can order a big, plump steak with some fried potato sides and then finish off with a sweet, creamy dessert. It’s one of the better gluten-free menus out there because there is a great deal of choice.

The Aussie Fries are not gluten-free, nor are many other favorites that might appear to be. So, always double-check. You can also take a look at the following list, all of which are gluten-free as far as we are aware:
