No GF menu. Reluctantly gave me the allergy list. Ordered cedar salmon cause it was one of few items listed without gluten. And it was really good.

I called the Applebee's at Stage & Sycamore & was told they had nothing gluten free. So they lost a party of eight.

Waite staff were very helpful. Came in & asked for GF menu, received it right away. I had Blackened Talipia w/o the blackening. It comes w/seasonal veggies & fried red potatoes. All very good. They have vanilla ice cream too. Try it if you ever get to West Memphis, AR.

I actually didn't eat here. But driving through I was looking for a gluten-free restaurants, and there are currently none listed in West Memphis. I wish I knew Applebee's was there, because I would've stopped to eat

Advertising gluten sensitivity menu items, but when I went to order, was told they take NO precautions for allergy issues due to liability concerns. Won’t be back. I didn’t choose to have food allergies. It’s not hard to make a bit of an effort to protect me.

We took my celiac son in because they were said to have a GF menu. They told us they got rid of their separate fryer. They also couldn’t say if the meat was safe, even without buns. They seemed to have no idea about dealing with food allergies and the manager seemed annoyed that we were asking.

Pros: If there is a scene that caters to gluten-free needs in Pikeville, KY it is hiding well. Chain established "gluten-sensitive" items. Staff seems to care about not wanting you to get sick.

Cons: Staff not at all knowledgeable about gluten items/options. The service was not great.

We were greeted by a very unfriendly hostess who acted as if she'd prefer we just walked out the door. Mind you we went at 12:30 on a Saturday and they weren't even busy. All parties seemed confused when I asked about allergens/gluten. Then a manager brought me the allergen list and explain that they can't guarantee any cross-contamination (which is fair and well know). Every time I'd ask the server a question she'd get a manager to come over. All the managers just wanted to make me a very plain meal without seasoning or sauce, despite gluten-sensitive options that are already informed gluten sensitive so if they were taking the same precautions as they were with the plain meal it should have been fine. Our server, bless her was sweet, but not very with it and didn't check on us after taking or order until our food arrive (which was almost an hour later!). We ordered an appetizer that never came, two salads and an entree. The salads we'd hope would come out before the food came out with the meal. My Ceaser salad was drenched in so much dressing it was sickening. You could probably fill up two dipping containers with it. The food was just okay, but we ate it because by the time it came we were super hungry. We were actually getting ready to leave and tell them to cancel the order when the food finally came. I got a little sick but I am not sure if it was from gluten or just the overall greasy quality of the food and overload of dressing when I didn't even eat the whole salad. I wish I could give an alternate gluten-free suggestion for those that are traveling in Pikeville, but unfortunately I was only there for one day and this was my experience.

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.

Speak to a manager about your allergy otherwise I’m not confident in their ability to prevent cross contamination
