Try the riblet basket OR dinner

a typical Applebee's - one of us chose the riblet basket with fries and the other the riblet dinner. The dinner was waaaay to much, so if you want the riblets, either share it with your table mates or just for for the smaller portion riblet basket. The cole slaw was fresh and tasty. The dessert we... read more

I have just walked out this place. Firstly I was greeted by tall skinny guy who should in no way be a meet and greet host as he is miserable and barely talks. After 5 min a waitress passed by and said she would be right with me. 5 min later I walked out with a single person noticing. If... 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 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... More

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
