    Had the Margarita chicken minus the queso. Waiter was very knowledgeable. He explained that there are different allergy buttons he has to press when submitting an order and that the food is prepared with extra precaution. It was all very good! No gluten reaction.

    I get the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp every time. It's frustrating because it seems like they have a bunch of menu items that are close to gf except for a flour tortilla or a wheat thickened sauce or wonton chips. They really could do better as a national chain. Until then, I'm limited to Bourbon Street, chicken wings, or salads.

    I went with my 2 sons who have celiacs. The manager was so helpful-came over with the binder and explained everything. Our waiter,Jeff, was also very helpful. Overall, one of the better gf experiences we've had.

    i have been here several times and they are always very accommodating. one time I got the quesadilla burger and they willingly made it with corn tortillas instead of flour. their burger have good flavor so eating it without the bun isnt so bad.

    We ate at the one I Teays Vally on vacation while our waiter was very helpful and understood cross contamination their menu was horrible had to look through a 3 ring binder for what was gf and then go find it in 3 different menus they had. Said the bone in wings are gf but waiter said fried with all chicken so they are not.

    Giving this a 3 star because my celiac did not get sick. She got the bacon hamburger without the bun and a side fries. They did have some gf options on the menu. However, the menu is not exactly a menu. It's several pieces of paper with the ingredients listed and and the allergen is x marked. So, be prepared to read through that. :) But, the service was extremely slow on top of waiting 25 minutes to be seated. We had a party of 6 (baby was sleeping) and we saw several other parties of 3-5 show up after of us, order, serve and leave. Our waitress was trying, but the kitchen staff just did not seem to care or they forgot about us. My food as well as my husbands was cold. A few managers came by to check in us. They microwaved the food, discounted our meal $25 and gave us a $10 voucher, so they tried to make it right. We were never rude about it, but as weary travelers we just wanted to eat and get back on the road. By the time we got through we were there for over 2 hours. 😕

    The manager came out and explained the allergy menu to me which was very nice and made me feel better as I was nervous eating here due to so many people saying the Applebee's chains made them sick every time. I got the fiesta lime chicken and the garlic mashed potatoes with ranch. Everything was delicious and I did not get sick.

    Be very careful if you are GF. The wait staff may or may not understand the concept of GF and/or care. I was told an item on the menu was GF she THOUGHT. She was going to check and come back for another option/order if it was NOT. She didn't come back so I assumed she was correct that the new item was GF. Wrong!!! I was sick for about 5 days. She didn't care I suppose or thought it wasn't important. Can't complain that they were too busy. I was at a table of 2 and we were the only customers in at the time. I am giving them a GF unfriendly rating due to this. Note: This was the Applebee's in Ephrata. I didn't notice the location until I posted this.

    1 star because I can't give it 0. The worst service we've ever received at any restaurant. Ever. Wait staff had no idea what was even on the menu. It should never take 2.5 hrs to get in and out of Applebee's. Food arrived wrong. Incorrect checks were discussed between tables near us because we were ALL overcharged. We will NEVER go to this location again.

    I did not like this place, and I will not be coming back. When I asked for a gluten free menu, I was given a regular menu, and gigantic binder that said what on the menu contained dairy, wheat, gluten, soy, etc. It was very complicated to find out what I could eat and what I could not eat😕. I had a small reaction afterward.

    This place does NOT have a GF menu, which tells me they have suppliers that they don't monitor. The staff are not educated and when you ask about GF options, they bring out 'The Binder' which shows a list of items you still have to cross reference with the menu, and cross reference again by specific elements in each of the already cross checked menu items. It would be nice if they just marked the regular menu with possible allergens, or just don't bother at all? Why don't these chains just have standard things they always have that are always ok for certain allergies? Gluten is a growing issue that more and more people are becoming aware of. Get ahead on the curve people! So I go elsewhere.

    I'm not impressed with the selection, not even steak can gluten-free because of the seasoning. The list of choices is a very short list. Very short, I wouldn't waste time and money going to the restaurant (I have found that every branch is the same) If I could choose 0 stars, I would.

    New menu does not offer many options for GF eating. While the main dish may be lusted as GF, the included side dish may not be. Was not allowed to substitue side. Staff was unknowledable of ingredients. Also I was concerned with cross contamination. The is not a great place for a person with Celiac disease. Additional Comments : Silverware was dirty with food stuck to it and the bathrooms were dirty.

    They have an allergen menu I ordered a gluten and soy free chicken salad, because the steaks have soy, but waitress gave me the wrong thing. So the manager came right out and cleared up the confusion right away. The meal I ordered was good. There aren't too many gluten and soy free options on the menu so as long as you are fine with limited options, you'll be happy.

    DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC! we asked for a gf menu and they have an entire binder with all menu items listed and all common allergen ingredients checked off so I thought that would make it easier for my daughter to find something safe. However, upon questioning our server about the chicken wings and French fries (which are both indicated as GF on allergen menu), we were told they are cooked in the same fryers as breaded items. Found the fine print at the top of each page saying they cannot guarantee that items are gf because of preparation practices, including the use of common fryers. We asked to speak to the manager just to clarify. I pointed out that the menu states these items are gf but since they cook them in a common fryer they absolutely are not, so for someone with Celiac disease like my daughter that could cause her to become very ill and that the allergen menu is deceptive. He seemed to have no real concern or sympathy. We ended up not ordering anything for her because of the lack of understanding and preparation practices.

    We love it here, we used to get the fiesta lime chicken everytime and loved it, we still get it sometimes for variety. But our new favorite is the riblets with honey barbeque sauce. It comes with really good fries and honey mustard to dip them in. They have many more options as well and have fudge shooters for dessert that are GF as well. Never once have gotten sick and the waitresses are always friendly.

    Horrible experience. The manager does give you a menu with nutrition facts like the website has except half the food is listed the allergies after cooking half is listed with it before cooking. Example: steak has gluten and dairy - after Cooking but your not told that, and sweet potato fries are "gluten free" but then cooked in same oil as everything else. They did not explain a single thing and were not very helpful at all! Besides that they brought me the wrong food which I insisted my friend eat so theirs didn't get cold and he was almost done by the time I got the right meal. Then they gave us the bill with both my meal and he meal they brought us which was wrong on the bill. The waitress blamed the chef for the wrong meal and the manager for "ringing it in wrong I knew he would do that" taking no owner ship. And I left with hives and Itchy because they served me cross contaminated food after telling them I'm severely allergic... You can't pay me to go back there

    It would be helpful if they actually had everything on their gluten free menu. You can't even order a burger without a bun because it isn't considered gluten free in their restaurants. I ended up getting a side of potatoes and fruit. I wanted soup. The soup listed on their gluten free menu is no longer available and none of their others are gf.
