Just perfect for a fast and nice diner after a long international flight. Nice waitress and good menu

What makes a chain restaurant even worse? Poor service and stale food. Sasha was so rude, I waited 30 minutes to just get the drinks to the table after we had been seated. Sasha blantly ignored our table as she talked on her cell phone. Does this company even care about customer service? This experience was horrifying. I would never... More

For a good meal at a great place before a flight out of Denver International, try this Applebee's. The service was great and the food as always, up to Applebee's standards. You won't be disappointed.

We went late night to get the specials. We had beers and shared a few appetizers. The server was SUPER awesome and friendly! Our food came out right away.

Companion and I popped in for a light, late lunch on a Monday. Service was fast, efficient and accurate. Server warned companion that dressing on new avocado salad was best served on the side, and she was right. It was like BBQ sauce. Yuck. Apparently she has heard enough complaints she is honest up front - bonus points for that.... More

This is a chain everyone is familiar with, so I do not need to mention food quality, etc... they are all pretty much all the same. What set this apart was the attention to service given by the manager. We waited quite a while for our food to arrive, but really were not bothered. The manager came to our table... More

I'm sure everyone has had their fair share of Applebee's. The usual good food and many options. I want to boast about the service we had... it was awesome. I went twice in one week! Bartenders were extremely friendly and outgoing. I was a traveler and they gave me excellent suggestions on places to go, things to do and the... More

This was our first visit to Applebee's while visiting Denver (and staying in Aurora), Co. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with artichoke and my husband had the fried fish dinner. My sandwich was plentiful but just so-so taste-wise. My husband's fish had a heavy batter. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things...who knows. This was convenient because its near... More

Accurate orders, fast, friendly service! What more could you ask for! Note, if you are staying at an area hotel, ask for a coupon.

Stayed a night in a hotel across street from this Applebee's so it was too easy to go there to eat. Although I prefer local places over chain restaurants going somewhere you know is mildly comforting. Had very nice servers. Manager was super friendly and price was right. They were offering half price appetizers from 3-6pm. Totally enjoyed the food,... More
