*Chains – Applebee’s

4

Applebee’s has a great food allergen menu on their website (if that link breaks, go to their main site – there is a link at the bottom of the page to their food allergen chart).

I’ve eaten there with success as they do have quite a few options, and I had good luck with a well-educated staff. I’ve received equally rave reviews of Applebee’s from Go Dairy Free viewers, too. Please be aware though that most of the dairy-free options are meat or seafood entrees; I did not see many vegan options on the menu, but I’m sure that they can accommodate by customizing a dish.

See the website below for menus, locations, etc.

  1. I Attended Applebee now and fortuitously I looked on the website before leaving our local restaurant did not have a copy of the list of free dairy products. They were really helpful, but I was disappointed. In addition, the number of tickets free milk is limited. I had the jalapeno lime shrimp was very good.

  2. I recently went to an Applebee’s north of Orlando. I had a simple gf pasta and had a reaction. I am not sure if I just ate too fast or if there was some cross contamination. I just went to the Applebee’s in Pelzer, SC. The hostess brought a wonderful binder with just about EVERY type of allergy and the allowed menu items for each allergy on the menu. As I am GF/CF, I just cross referenced and had a lovely meal that only left me with happy memories.

  3. I went to Applebee’s today and fortunately looked at the website before I went as our local restaurant did not have a copy of the dairy free items list.

The other options were steak and the riblet basket (which our local Applebee’s did not even have on the menu).

  4. I am an ovo vegetarian and recently visited an applebees. They were very accommodating and totally went out of their way for me. I highly recommend!
