Not my first choice

I was a fan of Applebee’s but the food has gotten boring and the service worse. The apple bees in Margate is nicely remodeled but the menu barely touched. The food sometimes comes half cooked or completely incorrect. One occasion I had to return my order 3 times. On the third I gave up and... read more

I did not have particularly high expectations of a franchise restaurant like Applebee's but was really pleased with the professionalism of our server, Nicholas, and the quality of the food. He recommended the hamburger, which is made of fresh (never frozen) beef -my husband was pleasantly amazed at how tasty it was. And cooked the way he asked. The fries... More

I visited Applebees with some friends and were pleased with the food and drink. The service was a little slow but it was worth the wait. The blackened tilapia was tasty and reasonable priced. The portions are large with one person requiring a take home container. This Applebees is like the others not fancy but you can get a decent... More

This place is a ripoff, the ceaser salad is not fresh. The dressing has no taste , they mix it for you , so the presentation is awful. I ordered a meal with chicken, red potatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and onions. The plate was half full of onions, 2 pieces of zuccchini, and mushrooms and a few little pieces of potatoes.... More

We visit this Applebee's location occasionally. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. It usually is busy especially for dinner and on the weekends. We were there for a late Valentine's Day lunch and we got the last table. Undaunted, our server took great care of us. Love the 2 for $20 sirloin platter with the mashed... More

We went here to celebrate my cousin's 92nd birthday. If nothing else, it is predictable. If you are watching your calories, be careful, The flavors are fine, but they come with baggage-heavy salt and fat. You won't get a bad meal-just one not very good for you.

We went as a family of eleven on a Saturday night. Bad decision. We called for reservation or for call ahead seating. They don't accept either. We were told that we should be fine after 7:00 PM. So, we went. The wait was over an hour and fifteen minutes. The entire time, there was a huge curved booth that would... More

Nothing special, atmosphere is how all the Applebee's are. The food is just whatever honestly, everything is frozen and fried. If you check their website and see the nutrition, their food is actual horrible for you in terms of calories, fat and sodium (1,000 grams of sodium and more per serving). I'd skip and try Fridays or Bru's room instead.

Don't order the steak. Was the pitiful! Seems they soaked it in tenderizer and made it all mushy! Others had lunch pasta which was good. The steak was only bad thing we had at the table.
