The place was not too busy (Sunday evening), but our waitress was very absent we we needed her, and never cleared the extra glasses when emptied, just brought... More

Great ribs, good burgers and all the American trimmings in a sports themed bar. Great for a pint and some baseball

a large group of my friends wanted to go someplace that was reasonable and could accommodate us on a Saturday night. One member of the group said that Applebee's had a 2 for $20 special. Since the group included several couples, we decided to go there without a prior reservation. They told us it would be about a 30 minute... More

Perfect for a steak and some beers! Very close to the hotel so you don't need a car. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

This restaurant is a short walk from the Larkspur Landing and the Hilton garden Inn. Food is standard. Service was okay. Nothing outstanding about this restaurant. There are better options in the area!

Usually, after everytime I go to misson peak, I'll come back down the 680 and have a nice steak at Applebee's. It's very tender and juicy and comes with nicely made sides. The service is also very...

The food was excellent. The best that we have had in Milpitas Ranch Drive area. I think it is the best restaurant in the Ranch Drive.

As a vegetarian, I did not have an issue with enough veggie options. Great staff and good food. Don't order too much, the portions are huge.
