Lunch with old classmates.

Very good choices with a large selection, interesting combinations, tasty and fairly fast service. Would recommend for lunch/supper.

Typical Applebee's quality which is good. I ordered for Pick Up and was told 10 minutes and asked what type of car I'd be driving. I parked in Pick up parking spot and they came out and delivered on time. Never had to leave car and food was tasty and Hot.

I love Applebee's and it seems to be steadily declining. Last few times I've went, the food has been lukewarm and somewhat bland. However, the staff is always very friendly and provide great service! We always tip well!

Lunch options for $6.99 of half size sandwich and salad, or different combinations. Seriously had our food in less that 10 minutes. Very filling and inexpensive. Just right!

It wasn't bad, but you knew what it was going to be like- service started off very good, but became ordinary as our stay progressed. Very comfortable atmosphere though

I know it's a chain restaurant and I know that most of the food probably comes in frozen in plastic portion bags. But the service here is possibly the best in Burlington. Since it is a chain, I think they take the time to properly train the wait staff. As a former waitress myself, I'm pretty critical of servers, but... More

We went to here to eat lunch and had children with us. Out of the 7 of us, 2 of us received what we actually ordered. The children actually said what they wanted and pointed to the corresponding picture and still they didn't get our order correct. We had to have three of the items corrected due to food allergies,...

Applebee's has always been a great restaurant that I enjoyed going to but that was when I was in Indiana and Illinois. This one food is not good. No flavor and food was not hot. My family will not be going back
