Let's be up front about this...I would never eat at an Applebee's. Being in Clinton, Iowa, however, severely limits your options. We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express across the parking lot and ordered carryout. we ordered a steak, a entree salad, a sandwich and a quesadillia. Sandwich may have challenged the kitchen the least. It was fine (although... More

Nothing special, over priced as far as I am concerned. Most of the time I am still hungry after eating here. There are much better places, like Candlelight Inn.

We had lunch at Applebee's in Clinton, Iowa Friday February,21,2014. We had the 2 for $20.00. My husband had the chicken parmesan and I had the Quesadilla burger. They both were very good. Our appetizer was the spinach artichoke dip. The waitress was very nice and she told us about the survey I could fill out since I was getting... More

Server was decent but we waited for our food way too long. My cowboy burger was overdone and the "crispy" onion were a ball of cold gtease. Told my wife never again....

Our appetizer and meal were very good, loved the fried green beans! If we hadn't ordered the extra breadsticks, the meal would have been a 10. The bread seemed like it was warmed in the microwave, maybe more than once. Applebee's is a casual place, and as typical for Applebee's, the wait staff is friendly, but I'd appreciate just a... More

This was not one of the best Applebee's I've ever eaten at. It was not the worst either. My chicken strips were good, but my fries were cold and old by the time they reached me. Service was adequate but could use improvement. I asked for BBQ sauce and had to request more since the first portion was so skimpy.... More

We ate there today Sunday, Service was great, food no so great. My fish was over deep fried, and my wife's flat bread burger was more a taco burger for as crispy the flat bread was. Three stars because staff was very good. Too bad the food couldn't match up.

Greeted promptly and seated within a few minutes. Food was good; but not great. Service was adequate but could be improved. I had a steak; the mashed potatoes were great, veggies not that good; and steak was average.

We went on a Thursday night, there were about 20 of us and they were able to seat us at a large table. Some of the drink orders got messed up, but I think the food all came out timely and good. We had a wonderful time.
