Very limited options, difficult to decipher allergen menu, uninformed wait staff and after all the education and double checking.. still ended up contaminated. FYI- the allergen menu lists some items as free of wheat (salsa chips, French fries, etc.) but they are fried with wheat. Won't be going back!

Their regular menu is so complicated and then to look each item up in a book of allergies. It's impossible. Waitress was no help, said they can't guarantee GF. Why have Applebees in this app? I went with the allergy menu and hostess digestion but was sickened.

I ordered gluten free asked 3 times to make sure confirmed when the food was delivered. Before I was half done with the chicken I was running for the bathroom. I will not go back.

It was an awful experience!!!! The manager and waitress were extremely rude very uneducated on the needs of a person with a gluten allergy and I left hysterically crying! They had a "gluten free menu" but when I asked questions the manager pointed things out on said menu and said the spices they use have gluten in them ... THEN WHY ARE THEY ON A GLUTEN FREE MENU!!! it was the worst experience ever and was even harder considering it was my first experience dining out after being given the news about my new allergy. I highly recommend NOT going to Applebee's on Arsenal street I will MEVER EVER go back

Allergy menu but no gf specific menu. I are the fiesta chicken salad minus the dressing. Not bad, but the waitress didn't really listen...

The menu is “gluten sensitive” and is not suitable for anyone who has celiac and a severe reaction to gluten.

I have celiac. There are a few god options. I have the ribeye once and the sirloin another time. Don’t risk the fries, they are in a shared fryer. But the mashed potatoes and veggies are good.

Items on the menu that include gluten are indicated with a gluten sensitive (gs) logo. Additionally, when the waiter found out I was gluten sensitive she spoke to the manager and the manager came out with the allergy binder so that I could appropriately make a decision. Very pleased with the service and professionalism.
