Like the updated menu with more unique and flavorful choices

My friend and I had a hard time deciding as this was a new menu for us since our last visit. We decided on appetizers giving us different choices. We had chips and salsa, loved having both green and red salsa, chicken quesadilla, and boneless wings Asian flavor. I liked everything we had. Lastly I... read more

Smiling friendly service, but it bugs me when they have to come back to ask how you want your steak cooked. My wife had the lemon chicken with rice and she thought it was great. I had a 9 oz sirloin and it was superb. I ordered medium and it arrived medium well (no pink at all) but the cut... More

My family and I traveled out to Colorado from Maine. We have an Applebee's in Maine, which we rarely go to. However this one was located with in walking distance from our hotel. Everyone was really hungry and tired so we decided to try it out. I was extremely happy with the service and the food was very good. I... More

After a long day travelling, we were relieved to learn Applebee's would give us a 10% discount for using our Holiday Inn room key. We ordered a $4 plate of the smallest fried pot stickers I've ever seen! I prefer mine steamed but that wasn't an option. My 12 year old ordered the ribs...she doesn't like a lot of sauce... More

We especially liked that it gives 10% discount if staying at nearby hotel, the new menu for healthier choices tasty, is well priced and a good value, perfect margaritas

You can always depend on their food to be delicious. With a well rounded menu it's possible for everyone to find something they like. We often look for Applebee's when traveling.

4 for early dinner, everything was great Applebee's fare. Our server was gracious and efficient, the food was hot and good quality. Applebee's has been consistent for us in so many different states we have visited and used AB for a meal.

Cold food. Seasoned poorly. Not up to Applebees standards. Service was good and considerate, too bad the kitchen didn't follow through. I was able to get an allergen menu which helped.
