Not great, not horrible

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... read more

Service was quick at this property, menu selections very good and price was quite acceptable. We were looking for some light fare after the normal dinner hour, and Applebee's offered just the right types of menu items for which we were looking.

My wife and I frequent this Applebee's in McHenry often. The Service is getting worse by the week?? Don't know why? Usually the Manager stops by several times during the visit? But the newest Manager is seldom seen??? The Food is good. We have problems getting refills. Just not as enjoyable as before!

Nice place, nice food, not too expensive. It is a good place to go for a quality meal. Not the typical bar scene- quieter.

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

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. 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
