It was late, and this was the only available option, a point of which I was frequently reminded. It was late, so I can forgive the menu shortages, but the food was mediocre, at best. Service was nice, but slow. Again, it was an hour to close, and maybe a visit at a more reasonable hour would have been better,... More

We love to go there for special dinners. Their 2 for $20 is a great treat for us. The service is excellent and friendly. We like their 7oz. sirloin, with garlic potatoes and vegetable.

They had the place beautifully decorated for Christmas. As someone who doesn't care at all about sports - I never care for their normal sports décor. Was seated right away on a Tuesday night. Waitress was professional and very good. We tried the new Sweet potato Fries appetizer that comes with 3 dipping sauces - maple, sriracha, and some sort... More

This Applebee location has just been recently updated and is nicely decorated and clean. The menu is extensive and it's hard to decide what to order. We had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the grilled chicken oriental salad and my aunt had the soup of the day and a chicken wrap. Both were delicious. The service was great... More

If you're from a suburb or the city than you should avoid Applebee's in Freeport. The restaurant was not super crowded but it took forever to get our food. Having enjoyed a meal in Madison yesterday with our kids it confirmed how slow service is here. Menu is average. My wife's steak was over seasoned. My pasta was average. Our... More

Applebees is the place to go in Freeport. The staff are super friendly and community orientated. The food is stellar and cooked to perfection each time. I do like to support local businesses and try to shy away from franchises most of the time, but in Freeport, if I want consistency, great service, and perfect food every time, Applebees in... More

We like Applebees anywhere ... the one in Freeport is a favorite place to meet for lunches. I LOVE the Oriental Chicken Salad, and they have fantastic lunch specials. Always good, friendly service, and decent value.

Have been here a few times now. Service is like you walked into "Cheers". This is the neighborhood joint where everyone knows your name. Great food, drink specials and half price appetizers after 9:00.
