Always good

This is a great location for lunch, and the atmosphere is casual, but elegant and the menu varied enough for any taste. I have been there a few times for lunch and also dinner, and the food is always fresh, and the service is always attentive and good. Highly recommend going there-and if for... read more

I was 4 weeks on a business trip to Silicon Valley, based in the Crown Plaza, Milpitas. After a few days getting oriented, I did choose Applebee's in walking distance to be my favorite restaurant not only due to best price performance ratio, great food but also very friendly staff.

There were seven of us who dined here at the end of a business meeting. Our server, while extremely sweet and very professional, was entirely overworked. She probably had 10 or more tables and way too much to do. The bartender appeared to be very inexperienced as well. Our drinks were not made as we would have thought they would... More

Applebee's is a frrequent destination for lunch and sometimes dinner. The food has good variety, service is fast and friendly. Their special combos such as two entrées and an appetizer or lunch duo are good bargains. I will sometimes have an appetizer trio (especially the Won Ton Tacos) for lunch.

The staff was extremely friendly. The service was prompt, the food was good. Wine selection was pretty good for a chain restaurant.

November 13, 2014 we went to lunch. The restaurant was full and we were asked to wait. The MANAGER offered chilled water while we waited! We were seated in less than five minutes. Our server, Lindsay, was EXTREMELY helpful, stopping by our table often to ensure we have everything we needed. The food was sizzling hot and delicious. We had... More

I usually like to avoid the chain restaurants so I can enjoy the local cuisine. However, we ate at the Applebee's (which is within walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn) several times and the service was always great! Very friendly and efficient staff.

The food was very good, with many choices for our family (picky eater, vegetarian, etc). We love Applebee's and have eaten at many different locations. The service was sub-par for our experience. 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

Being in the road in excess of 100 nights a year, I can usually depend on the standby Applebees...Not so in this case...It was late approx 11:00....service when you received it was good....very slow and inattentive at the bar because that was recommended as faster...the wings were very sub par at best along with chips and a salsa cup so...
