Good food and excellent waitstaff

Went here for a late supper. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful. We had the salad bar,for a start, which was fully stocked and very fresh. They had a nice selection of wine and mixed drinks. Our food was hot and good size portions. I was very pleased with this restaurant.

Amber, our server, was a delight. Very friendly and kind. She made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us several times during our visit. The hamburgers were excellent. Done just right, moist and flavorful. This is the best Applebee’s we have every eaten in!

We were here for lunch on a weekday afternoon. The staff made us and our kids feel very welcome. Our food came quickly and tasted very good. Our waitress took good care of us and the manager came over to see how we were doing. Good experience all around. Would recommend this restaurant.

The lunch specials were good and the service was adequate. Food is what you expect for Applebee's. The bar area is quite large compared to some others.

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!!
