Not a lot to choose from if you are gluten free like our family but they do make the effort to have lists of allergen friendly foods available...

My husband and I eat out often, and Appleby's in Coralville, always serves us well. The food is delicious, and the servers are friendly and attentive. We love eating here. The Manager always comes over and asks us how they did. Our waitress, Natashca was very good, she was friendly, pleasant, and very attentive. We could not be any more... More

We had not been here in about six months.... It smelled a little funny when we entered. Both husband and I ordered the shrimp pasta suggested by server. It was blah as were the kids meals...how can you mess up grilled cheese? Really bothered by server's refusal to pre bus the table, even when I attempted to hand her my... More

Its ok. Not the best food ever but it has improved over the past year. I've eaten this in the past and it was terrible. My recent visit was not that bad. So overall its ok but I prefer Chilis

Overall Applebee's need more vegetarian and vegan options. I like their specials and go to A's after shopping and after 9:00 pm when they have half price appetizers. This makes it good value. There's usually a drink special each evening which adds more value. Staff are usually helpful and friendly.

We love Applebee's and were pleased there was one close to us. The service and food were great, as always. We can always count on enjoying a meal there.

Where's the neighborhood? I'ts a plain,, mundane chain and is not locally owned. Money leaves the community and it's no adventure whatsoever.

We normally don't choose to eat at Applebees but decided to give their 550 calorie menu a try. My husband had the Signature Sirloin with Garlic Herb Shrimp. It came with some red potatoes and steamed vegetables. The food was very tasty, however, his meal cooled off rather quickly. I ordered the Sizzling Asian Shrimp and Broccoli. I didn't want... More

Despite what everyone thinks, Applebee's has a poor selection for vegetarians. Altering dishes is not recommended
