Very pleased with service and waitress. Very clean. Thai salad was awesome and would definitely order it again. I like eating here because they know the calorie count of food and so it is easy to stay on my diet. My friend had a steak and ordered it medium rare and it came back medium. That is the only complaint.

Let me start with the food and service was great.Promptly greeted at the door and seated .Now it has been a while since I've been to an Applebbe's I noticed many changes.I miss the old place. I liked the old décor and the old menu. New to the last time I was there, are computers located on the table where... More

As an Englishman visiting for the first time I was hopeful that I would have been presented by a massive rack of ribs, creamy Coleslaw and great chips (fries) but apart from the tasty fries I found the Slaw lacking care and the Ribs, whilst tasty, were no larger than the ones we get for £2.99 ($5) at our local...

Average in every way compared to other Applebee's in other states. Adequate food, although my brownish broccoli looked like it was scrapped from the bottom of a large pot, while my husband's was green and fresh. Waitress took our order and only returned when we requested her too via the restaurant computer on the table.

Stopped in for a quick bite while Christmas shopping. The waiter was amazing, the epitome of service with a smile. He was very nice and patiently answered all of our questions. The food was typical chain fare but the service with draw me back in.

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.
