We went to Applebee's for a rare lunch date. The food was okay: the burger was huge, the ribs were tasty. The churro s'mores, meh. (the chocolate sauce tasted like someone just squirted a bottle of Hershey's syrup into the dish) Service was also meh: I never got a refill on my water, and the server tried to bring us... More

We had a great time out as a family, the food was delicious, games on, and Julie did a great job making sure everything was right with our orders and very... More

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. Food is always good and they always take care to get the order correct, if you want well done you get it! Frequent changes in managers, sometimes managers from other Applebee's come in temporarily. 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
