Decent

I don't care for sports bars but if you get seated in a good spot it feels like a restaurant. The food is good for the price. This one gets more people than the Mooney location so I like the Mooney one better, the food is the same quality at both locations. Service is ok if there's not a lot... read more

I was hoping for a better place due to the location but no, it's the same like the rest, very few chain restaurants try to be better but this location just looks like they don't even try, the service is the only thing good, the food is just blah!

I've been to many different locations including the other Visalia one, and this is one of the best. My wife and I both ordered steak dinners. Mine was on the house for Veterans' Day including the mushrooms and onions I requested. The garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegies were very good as were the steaks. They were very busy with...

My wife and I had the Lunch Combo Specials. I had some sort of Spicy Chicken Salad and the Shrimp Scampi Linguine. Both were excellent. I'm not a big fan of Applebee's, but this lunch was the best meal I have ever had in an Applebee's.

Great steaks for 19 dollars, try American Strip, very good beer, lots of TV screens showing ball games and American football. Really good and fast service, boisterous but fun.

Typical Applebee's fare. Service was a bit slow, but not too bad. With two young boys waiting can be hard. Probably not an issue if it's an all adult group. Food was average. Not bad just not outstanding.

It's usually always quite busy, but we don't usually have to wait long for a table if at all. They have a good variety on the menu and the food is good. It's a great place to go to watch sports on one of the many TV's they have. They also give you a large ice cream sundae for your... More

I never usually get disappointed with food at Applebees. It's usually pretty tasty and at a certain level I expect each time I dine here. This location I had the new Strawberry Avocado Salad and it was pretty good! The dressing was tasty, the Strawberries fresh and the Avocado just ripe! Thanks for a good dinner guys...as usual!

We called 10 closed restaurants before we found good and faithful Applebee's. After moving furniture for family we needed a good dinner to celebrate and we weren't disappointed. I decided this one deserved another good recent review. Very friendly and prompt waitress and everyone liked their food, great selection. The two-for-$20 dinners are a great value. Best drink was the... More
