Applebee's is consistent, and they offer a gluten free menu. On this day, my wife ordered a steak, but it came out far too raw (twice). The manager apologized profusely when he personally returned it the second time, and they made a decent concession on our check. Our server (wish I could tell you her name) was outstanding. Cheerful, attentive... More

Went for lunch. The food was average but the restaurant was very dirty. The carpet was filthy. The bathroom smelled horrible. Floors were sticky. Table not clean. Won't be going back to this location. We were very disappointed.

Stopped here for a quick hot lunch. Got tomato basil soup with a BLT. Daughter got tomato basil soup and Mac@ Cheese with chicken strips on top. Food was hot and very good. Waitress was nice, but messed up daughters order. Price was ok for the about of food we got.

I have always loved Applebee's food & service. We got a nice table, yummy food & great service, but today the strawberry margarita tasted like all mix and no 'margarita'. Bad flavor. This was my birthday dinner from family so I didn't complain to the staff.

The food and service were barely mediocre; it's a chain and nothing more, but they seem to be victims of cost cutting measures.

My son and I ate dinner here. The food was good and the value was incredible. We got an appetizer, two entrees, and drinks for around $22. You can't beat a deal like that! On top of the value, we had exceptional customer service. Both our server, a really sweet girl that I can't remember the name of, was quick... More

Love Applebee's! The food is always good. Service was very good. Hardly any wait time for a table. The 2 for $20 is the best deal anywhere to eat.

I should say I usually don't like chain restaurants anyway but this location is always a disappointment. I have been here several times throughout my 10 years living in kzoo only because other people request it for some reason. Orders ALWAYS get messed up without fail...food is often served cold and is always slow. After my last visit i will... More
