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.

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.

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

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.

Went out for a special dinner with friends and enjoyed it. We were there just before the supper rush so we had great service. We would go back.

This place was just remodeled. Everything is fresh and bright. great food and help. I thing they have the right size for the right price. Not too big not too small. I have always enjoyed Applebees. Kids eat for $1 on Tue.
