So, there was an article in our newspaper about Red Lobster's new menu.

I called them up and asked if they now had a gluten-free menu. The server who answered said, no, they didn't, but that they might be able to come up with something.

I asked to speak to the manager, explaining that I didn't want to drag my large family there only to find out that the only thing they could give me was a piece of unseasoned fish and a plain microwaved potato, which is what happened last time I was there.

So the manager came on the phone, and told me that they did not have a gluten-free menu because they didn't want to be responsible if someone had a reaction, but that if I wanted to find out which foods they have that do not contain gluten, I could call 1-800-LOBSTER.

I kid you not.

Needless to say, we didn't eat there.

Sorry about your bad experience. We ate there once and they were pretty good about it. Celiac husband had grilled, plain fish with a baked potatato, along with a salad (no croutons, of course). I always bring along gluten-free ranch dressing, margarine, and bacon bits so he used them to spice up the fish a bit. They even added a side of fresh pineapple from the bar.

The same sort of thing happened to us at Applebees. They gave him a card with a 1-800 number, so he called, and after waiting quite a while, they told him Applebees had no gluten-free offerings. We were about to leave when the manager stopped by and helped us craft a gluten free meal for him. That was OK, but we don't go to Applebees anymore anyway - the food is just not that great.

Red Lobster and Applwbee's -- two places I would never go because of their cluelessness. And I used to love RL, but never Applebee's

Haha I agree with everything you said in there, verbatim.
