While in Gaylord for a few days for work, some co-workers and I had a few beers and decided to walk somewhere to dinner; Applebee's is a pretty familiar place, so we decided to head down there for dinner and a few more drinks. First, service was great. Our waitress was friendly and prompt with both good and drink. Co-worker... More

Not one of the better Applebee's I have been to. The hostess was nice but once our server took our order we waited 15 minutes until we received our nachos and dip. I had to ask to speak to a manager. She did deduct the cost if the appetizer from our bill. It doesn't change the fact we received it... More

I don't mind applebees but the food is just so...processed? Service is great and the meal was good, but it is always the same when I leave I tell myself I won't go back. I don't enjoy it. Not to say the food wasn't good. I would rather go to Ponderosa.

Went here with 13 people. The steaks were way over cooked, but even after we said not to remake they brought two complete meals to-go and took the meals off the bill! Redeemed themselves. A few of the other orders were incorrect, but fixed. The reason I put three stars is due to the hand washing I saw with employees.... More

My group of 12 golfers came in after playing golf in the area at 4pm. All received great meals and service and we were on our way home within an hour. Very much appreciated!!

It's always nice to have a restaurant that stays open late, sometimes I work late and don't have very many choices. I had the ribeye steak with vegetables and it was done just right and service was fast the waitress was very nice.The manager was going around to every table and checking to make sure everybody was happy. Fair price... More

Went in with my boyfriend to grab some of the 1/2 off apps and decided to get entrees as well. I got the steak with garlicky green beans and he got the sizzling shrimp and chicken entree. Apps were good but when our entrees came out we were severely disappointed. His chicken definitely wasn't sizzling and the shrimp looked like... More
