This place is best utilized for appetizers and drinks. Went for a girls night out. We had dinner and drinks. None of our dinner entrées were stellar. Appetizers were good. Would only come back for appetizer samplers.

This Applebee's is hands down the worst one I've ever been to! The prices are higher here too, it seems Applebees adjusted their usual menu to fit Tahoe's higher price points.

I live in Palm Springs and come here as a Traveler RN. After an 11 hour drive the most welcoming sight is a veggie burger and a Long Island Icetea. Great staff.

The broccoli Cheddar soup with a rather large glass of beer was perfect for a late evening tummy filler on a really cold night!

I have to say that the quality of food at this chain has dramatically improved and the cost is very good. Want a good deal with very good food then this is the one
