I eat at a lot of these restaurants as I travel the state. I ordered my normal – and it came out with ingredients I did not recognize. The rice was in hard clumps and was like chewing on gum, the chicken was burnt on one side, and there were herbs which are not normally in the fiesta lime chicken... More

Went there last night. Stood in line waiting to get in. They seated 4 groups before us. There was still one third of the seating area open. It came my turn to be seated and they said it will be five minutes. I looked around and said there are many open seats, what is up? I was told that because... More

It would appear that no one was in charge and things were a bit hectic. When we were seated, at was at a table that... More

15 mins before any wait staff came. Another 15 min to get beer. Food was terrible, actually tasted dirty? Pretzel appetizer tasted reheated and stale. Fiesta salad was just nasty.service was a joke. This is the kind of place where employees who are off for the night and show up to restaurant and come in and out of kitchen, go... More

We arrived and got seated right away as it wasn't really busy; Alex was our waiter and he came over and took our drink order no problem with that. We placed our order and I had the Weight Watchers Chicken Freshcado; it was made so good chicken was tender and the fruit on there was so good, not a big... More

We normally don't eat at chain restaurants, but the Applebee's in Appleton has a different feel to it. The staff is familiar, having been there for quite a number of years, and are always over-the-top friendly. The food is very good, somewhat typical for a chain, but nicely prepared and presented. Prices are in line with any other chain of... More

We attempted to eat at this Applebees last night and were extremely disappointed with the service. I called ahead to find out the wait time and was told to arrive between 15-20 minutes and they would have a table for my party of 8. When we arrived, they said they had a lot of people come in and had given... More

We were told there would be about a 20 minute wait on a Friday night around 7:15 pm. We went to the bar and it took 15 minutes before the bartender came over to wait on us. After 35 minutes we were taken to our table. As we walked by a long line at the door, and walked by many... More
