Better choice than the others

We chose Applebee's on scotsdale as it had by far the better choice than most of the others. We had ate at some of the others on previous visits and were not impressed. This was a good choice. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We were seated quickly and served quickly and efficiently. The food... read more

We were given a gift card for Applebee's and so about 8 months ago, we gave it a try. My wife had a catfish dish and it was cooked to the point of cardboard. I had a hamburger and it had absolutely no taste. We talked to the manager and we told her we would not be back. She encouraged... More

This restaurant offers a little variety in their selection from Think of itmany of the mid-level chain restaurants. The food at this Bowling Green site is usually consistent if somewhat slow in preparation. The waitstaff is usually excellent but does have great variation from month-to-month.

The food I ordered was not cooked well. The steak I had was as tough as nails. Wait staff at the bar was good.

We chose from the 2/25 menu, starting with onion rings as an appetizer. Salads are also a choice if you want something healthy. My partner chose the triple mac and cheese with chicken strips and next time that will be my choice. The mac and cheese was not the typical heavy gluey cheese sauce, but a very light sauce with...

I have never been treated so badly by a server in my entire life. I'm from the Midwest so I guess Indiana has me spoiled when it comes to manners. We should have known how our dinner would be the minute we walked in--it was dirty, multiple tables hadn't been cleaned off with no guests sitting at them and the... More

As Applebee's goes, this is well run; or it was today. I'm not a big fan of the CHAIN RESTAURANTS, that "warm up" precooked, or prepped food, but this place did it right. I find their salmon to be the best, & their salads were good. This facility had a new beautification, & it stands out, night & day. (That's... More
