They have a “Gluten Sensitive” mark by food not made with gluten containing ingredients, but staff confirmed on two separate occasions that there is no dedicated space on the grill for GF and no dedicated fryer. Food is great here, if you’re not Celiac.

While they have an allergen list and the food was good, I did get sick after eating here. I'm willing to give it another try as I've eaten at other Applebees without trouble.

Ate here 2 days ago with friends with a normal diet haven’t had issues at the location closer to me. Did my order of a salad that technically didn’t contain anything I should be allergic to according the list of items in it. I told the waitress my allergies were gluten and dairy she told me she can’t do anything to help me and I need to know every ingredient of the salad and the dressing before I order and tell her what I can’t have because she can’t do anything to find out the ingredients or talk to the cooks She also refused to write down my allergies on the order slip. If I would’ve been alone I would’ve have left but my friends didn’t see anything wrong with the interaction since they don’t have any allergies Sure enough I got very sick about an hour later probably from cross contamination
