The service was great. Their menu has a "GS" next to items that are deemed gluten sensitive. The employees are also knowledgeable about cross contamination and shared friers. I have not had any issues here but it is important to note that there was no true "gluten free" items on the menu, only gluten sensitive so if you are celiac please be careful while dining here.

I am not Celiac but am extremely allergic to gluten. I called ahead to see if they had a gluten free menu and was told yes. When we arrived they didn't have a gluten free menu just "Gluten Friendly" options. The options includes fries, wings, nachos, and some BBQ meats. They were not confident they could provide me anything safe to eat and I was confident in the items they listed as Gluten Friendly. We left and didn't order anything.

I visited Applebee's with my celiac daughter. The waitress (I believe her name was Kerra) was very knowledgeable about celiac and went through the menu options with us. She ensured the kitchen staff was aware of our needs and told them to clean the cooking surface and keep our food separate from gluten. The manager was notified and he stopped by to visit us to make sure our needs were met. Overall it was a stress-free experience.

Not many entree options, but the steak, garlic mashed and broccoli was delicious and no one got sick.

I was not impressed with this location. Staff, including management had little understanding of safe options. After many conversations and questions, I was served a grilled chicken salad with a breadstick on top. My son(celiac) did enjoy his grilled chicken taco bowl.

I would not recommend for Celiacs!!!! 😣 I stressed my severe allergy to gluten and ordered a salad.. they said no dressing was gluten free but lemon oil, even though website says that have a few that are indeed gluten free. My salad came out with a big breadstick on it😳😞 I told them I cant even have gluten touch my food as cross contamination can hurt me. waitress seemed annoyed and took my salad back, within a minute or two she returned with a new salad I asked her if they just removed the breadstick and they told me that they made a new one but it looked to me like they just remove the breadstick so I chose not to eat it and they still charged me for the salad. Definitely the last time I will be eating here!!!!
