Sometimes if you do not know the area and can not get input from people there it is best to stick with someone you know and Applebee's did not let us down. Great service and a great variety of food all prepared quickly and tasted great.

All I can suggest is that you NOT order steak at this restaurant. Those in our party who ordered other food were pleased with the meals. The steak was very TOUGH.

We decided to eat at this chain as it was convenient to our location. We had lunch - the food was decent, not great and certainly nothing to write home about. With this chain the prices are generally reasonable.

We ate here one night while visiting family here in Marshalltown & had some pretty good food. We haven't eaten at an Applebee's in quite awhile & had a good experience at this location. The service was very good & the gentleman that waited on us was very friendly & professional. Highly recommend eating here if in the Marshalltown area.

We had an hour to eat before we had to be somewhere else. Got seated immediately. Didn't see our waitress for about 15 minutes. Placed our orders right then. Just a Club Sandwich and Chicken Strips. One of us got their beer in about 5 minutes, the other didn't get their water until about 1/2 hr. later. Food never came.... More

Over time it has become a bit of a ritual to spend the first evening dinner in the US at Applebee's. It rarely disappoints, the menu has been very stable over years (which can be good or bad, but in this case I like it - it's like coming home).

I keep hearing and reading about Applebees food being microwaved. I don't think they can microwave the steaks and shrimp to make them come out the way they do - delicious and freshly sizzling! I/we have been eating there regularly (2-3 times per month) and it is always good! Service is fast and very friendly, efficient!
