We have always enjoyed Applebee's and the food has and is always great...but this past Sunday the food was still excellent but the atmosphere was less than desirable. While sitting at our table in the dinning section we had to listen to an off duty waiter who was sitting next to us in the bar area...(no walls or anything to... More

Frequently eat at Applebee's Mchenry. They just recently redid their decor and put in new benches. Cleaned up the restaurant nicey.

The staff is excellent. I... More

We stopped in on this VERY cold afternoon for lunch. We wanted to order soup and half a sandwich, and asked for sourdough bread. They informed us they didn't have sourdough but could substitute a hamburger roll or a hoagie roll instead. What?? So no sandwich, we ordered bowls of soup. What we received was about 3/4 cup of soup... More

Went here with a group of 7 people - 3 who ordered the Chinese Chicken salad and loved it! The service was good even though we were there on a busy Saturday afternoon. Their perfect margaritas were pretty good, but not perfect (good enough to order again, however). We would all go back because of the service and variety on... More

They have a breaded chicken dish with rice and pea pods that is so good it melts in my mouth. Plus, they give you so much you have leftovers for later. The service is good and every once in awhile I try one of their specialty drinks, which is also very good. One of our favorites, although we don't get... More

We go there quite often for lunch. A wide selection to choose from. A friendly environment. Nice that they meet you and greet you at the door.

So-so service. Food just average, typical Applebee's menu - boring. Prone to take forever to get your food.
