    The waitress plopped a huge binder down for me to paruse that outlines ALL ingredients for every food, and not very clearly, then promptly disappeared for a very long time. It is extremely difficult to figure out what they do have that's gf. And even more difficult to ask questions from someone working there. It is not clear at all from the way it's written. Not to mention it isn't even up to date with their new menu. No one, not even me after studying this binder for a half hr, could tell me definitively what was gluten free. I did not get sick, shockingly, after picking something I thought might be ok, but didn't know at all for sure. I will never eat here again. From what I could tell, they literally had maybe 2 things that are celiac friendly. More if you include beverages.

    They no longer have a GF menu. They have a book of about 30 pages of EVERY ingredient they use and it shows if it has Gluten in it or not. It would literally take about an hour just to read, figure out, and piece together something to eat.

    Staff was friendly and manager came out to discuss the way they handle celiac disease and gluten-free customers. They had an allergen list they gave me. I had the add on grilled shrimp skewers with garlic green beans. They did bring a Parmesan dip to go with the shrimp and when I asked about if that was GF, the waiter went to inquire. Upon his return, he quickly removed it from my plate (it was in a separate dish). I had no problems.

    Hostess told me they don't offer gluten free menus, or carry gf food. The waitress brought me a notebook showing what was gf. I explained that I have celiac and asked her to please make the kitchen aware, she did not. Violently sick. I will never eat at an applebees again.

    I inquired whether their fries shared a fryer with gluten items, such as chicken tenders. Waitress came back and told me her manager told her to inform me that fryers typically “kill” allergens in the hot oil and even gave me examples such as peanut allergies, fish allergies, and gluten. I was horrified. Don’t EVER trust this restaurant if you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

    My favorite thing to get here is the grilled chicken breast and a side of fries for around $11. I have never felt sick from eating here, and the food has always been good. They also have other sides that my family members with celiac/gluten sensitivity enjoy, including the grilled vegetables. Applebee’s has become a place that I can rely on for a filling, safe meal.

    Terrible service despite the fact that it never got busy. My daughter's food came out with french fries (cross contaminated) even though it was supposed to get green beans. My meal had a hunk of fried breading on the side of the plate from someone else's food. They did have an allergen menu but it does not take into account things like the cross contaminated fries.

    I've been here several times before and never had a problem before 5/13/2018 . I usually have Bar-B-Q Riblets with fries and Coleslaw all are listed as GF in their allergen free lists. I always tell my server that i am GF and have Celiac Disease. The wait staff always told me they would let the kitchen know. Last night our waitress seemed to be clueless., she went to her manager, who came to our table. He was extremely rude and informed me that the kitchen would not watch out for gluten coming near my food and nothing would be done to treat my food in any way different than "normal kitchen foodcare". My food came out without the fries, coleslaw, and cold, at the same time as my side salad which had croutons.My partner and I were speechless and very angry.

    Last night I ordered the salsa verde nachos for curbside pickup & told them I’m gluten free when I ordered. The gm came out to the car & said they’re not gf. I told him that they’re on the gf menu, as are the fries that I order. He said they don’t have a separate fryer. It’s all cooked in the same fryer. I’ve gotten sick the other times I’ve ordered but assumed I was glutened someplace else or from home since they’re on the gf menu & the person in charge those nights would come over & talk with me before ordering. I’m hoping the gm is wrong & that I’ve gotten sick a different way. I’ll be calling cooperate on Monday.

    Management seems very attentive to the urgency of Celiac requirements. Some staff also very attentive while others a bit less so stay diligent, making sure the waitstaff understands. We had no problems ordering but options understandably limited. Had a tasty grilled chicken, steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. Chips are merely warmed in the store so the chips and salsa were tasty, and safe, as well.

    This was a unique experience for us. There was no gluten-free menu, or marked menu items, but the manager sat down with us and an allergens binder, and went over the safe-to-eat menu items with us. He was very friendly, very helpful, and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable eating here. If you eat here, ask for Jason (the manager).

    Would never recommend Applebee's for GF. Their idea of Gluten Free is to hand you a binder with Xerox pages, and you more or less figure out what you can eat for yourself. Would love to give them 0 stars if I could. They have nothing!!

    Overall the food is cooked well and tastes delicious. They don’t have a GF menu. They just have the Giant file for allergens tat doesn’t even include the newer items. If you don’t have hours to figure out what you want, you can just stick to the basics and be fine. I didn’t get sick from cross contamination but the staff didn’t seem to know much about GF either so it might have just been luck.
