Came here after leaving another restaurant so we were really hungry. Got the sampler appetizer and all three things were great. One was the chicken quesadilla, which seemed to have gone back to its original recipe and was so good. Had the chicken tortilla soup and found it to be very spicy as in hot and I normally do heat...

Applebee is a neighborhood favorite which explains why it is always crowded. The food is average and service is good, depending on the time of day you visit. When you begin your dinner with a signature Applebee salad, you won't go wrong.

This is clearly a pre-bar for young people on their way to Bentley's. That's not to say it's a problem, but the entire place felt more like a bar and not a restaurant at all. Certainly the noisiest Applebee's I have ever been in, I could barely hear my daughter talk. Food was good and waitress gave fine service, but... More

We visited the College Park,Maryland Applebee's for dinner tonight. We actually tried to go there over a year ago but left without going in because their very large and accommodating parking lot has parking meters. Yes, it is the city that put in the meters, but I will never pay to park in a restaurant's lot. So why did we... More

Ate there 3 times recently with a friend. Boneless wings tasted like and had the consistency of chicken nuggets, pot stickers so so, beer cold and good, salad good. Parking, terrible. Last visit cost my friend $3 in coins for the meter and $20 for the parking ticket for staying a few minutes too long. Not worth it if you... More

The first time we went in, we had a waiter named Steve, and he was wonderful. Two nights later, we had a different waiter that was just awful, and getting waited on and then getting our food took forever.

During my two stays at the hotel next door, I had dinner several times. I experienced good service and enjoyed my meals. Good selection of different entrees to choice from and reasonable prices. Very nice causal dining restaurant.

I arrived late to the hotel next door and it was pouring rain, so I was grateful this Applebee's was there. I ordered takeout potstickers and tortilla soup, both of international dishes that had been heavily Americanized - or Applebeecized. Deep fried pot stickers? I think that violates the very definition of pot stickers. The tortilla soup was super thick... More

We often visit this Applebee's because there aren't that many choices in College Park. Sometimes it has been very frustrating, though. Slow service and hit or miss quality have generally been problems. Today, everyone seemed on their game and with a new menu the place seems to be improving as a lunchtime haunt.
