It is just another Applebee's

We used to eat there often with the family. Over time, the food has gotten average. The staff there is generally very friendly and the service is good so it is not a bad place to eat. We usually sit in the bar area, no waiting, a sporting event is on the big screens. For travelers, it is fine... read more

I found an Applebee's within walking distance of my hotel. Not fancy, but good, reasonably priced food and friendly service. Away from home, near my hotel, it was the perfect choice.

Forgot that it was Mothers day and after a day of traveling needed dinner. Had gone to a couple other restaurants in the area and the wait was over an hour so tried Applebee's before settling for fast food and were seated right away. It was good. The service was slow and the new device that they use at the... More

Arrived into Petaluma after a 40 hour journey at 11pm and thought everything will be closed but right next to our hotel was this restaurant so we pulled at the door and it opened. Had myself some wings, NY strip with mash and broccoli and ribs and to wash it all down three Lagunitas IPA. Carina who was the bartender... More

There are many other food choices nearby. Unfortunately, they were all closed. That being said I had a reasonably decent experience at this national chain bar. Happy hour specials are reasonably priced, both for food and drinks. If everything else is closed again, I guess I'll be back.

I called in an order for the "To Go" tonight. When I called they asked me if I wanted "silverware" with our order and I said yes! After waiting for longer that I thought was necessary based on what I was told when I placed the order, they finally brought the food. I then returned to our hotel only to... More

This restaurant is part of a large chain with basically the same food in each location which is sort of bar food for grownups. The menu has a wide variety of choices to please everyone. One hint...don't order the top sirloin steak as I've had it twice and each time it tasted as if it came from the freezer and... More

Have previously eaten at others in this chain but was not impressed. We decided to eat here as it was walking distance from our room. Service was good food good and not too pricey. We would return here.

We don't usually eat at chains while on vacation but we were staying near Applebee's & wanted something quick. It had recently been remodeled so it was very nice on the inside and we had great/welcoming service. It's right off of 101 too if you're looking for a quick bite on your way to the wine country.

Applebees is chain restaurant, so you get what you expect. The service was good (we tried out the table top ordering machines - Presto I think it what they are called). Placed our own order & paid with a credit card right at the table. Staff was friendly & food was good.
