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

Since I live close by, Applebee's definitely is my local choice when we want to eat out and still be casual and fully enjoy the 'pub' environment. By that I mean its truly is a place where a family can full enjoy a meal. They have tastes to suit most, yet the prices should meet most pocket books. What also... More

Staff was very accomodating after we spent the remainder of new year's at the bar in Applebee's. (First party was a bust). They even gave us champagne at midnight.

I thought I would have a peaceful drink at a restaurant bar close to Denver where I wouldn't hear bad mouthing of the Broncos and the opinionated bartender cut me off when I countered his bad jokes about the Broncos only winning a Super Bowl on play station. Not a good atmosphere.

This p[lace was close to my hotel, it was late, and I was hungry. it's kind of like an upscale McDonalds: not great, but pretty consistent, and this one was no different. Food was okay. Service was okay.

We ate there on a Saturday night and found the place teeming with families having dinner together. Naturally, the place was quite noisy. The food was just good but perhaps a little overpriced. Service was good.

The atmosphere and the food was OK. The only problem was an uninspiring waiter that got some of the order wrong. The fries served were cold. I suppose a positive was that when these concerns were raised the waiter attempted to rectify the problem. After experience this chain restaurant in another state, what I experienced here was pretty much the... More

We were a group of weary travelers staying at nearby hotel, arriving quite late at night. Called the manager, Gayle, who told us the hours and said she would be happy to welcome us. And she did indeed! Awesome experience and a great way to end an awful travel day! We ate well and tossed off most of the day's... More
