The menu has “GS” (gluten sensitive) next to the items that don’t have any gluten ingredients in them. When I asked my server if there were dedicated fryers or spaces for preparing gluten free foods she said no. I had the corn chips and queso which was good and then the riblets for my meal. Fries that came with meal were not in dedicated fryer, so I asked for just the riblets and was still charged for the fries. Probably won’t be back here as it was too risky as someone with celiac.

Notes


"As America’s Favorite Neighbor, the health and safety of our guests are top priorities at Applebee’s. As part of our commitment to you, we provide the most current allergen information available from our food suppliers on eight common allergens plus gluten and added monosodium glutamate (MSG), so that our guests with food allergies can make informed food selections. Please be aware that during normal kitchen operations involving shared cooking and preparation areas, including common fryer oil, the possibility exists for food items to come in contact with other food products. Due to these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee that any menu item can be completely free of allergens."

Manager was knowledgeable, but also gluten sensitive herself. (I called ahead). Staff was not knowledgeable but did mark that I had a gluten allergy on the menu. Limited food options but there were still some decent choices.

I'm an hour in and no rumbles. I will edit later if I did get hit.

My wife just found out she has Celiac so it’s been an adjustment to find places we all like that give her good options. I found Applebee’s menu online and you can select different allergens and it will show you what’s available for you to choose from. She had a steak, broccoli and baked potato and loved it. The kid menu was fun, they get to pick the main course a side and their drink. It was good for our family.

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.
