Did not care for the spicy food that I was served. Atmosphere was great, server was very friendly. We were seated right away and had a choice of table or booth. The menu has lots of good choices, and will make a better choice next time I visit.

We recently ate here on a family trip through Michigan. We were a party of 6, they were able to seat us right away without waiting. Our server (I wish I got her name) was super friendly and helpful answering questions on the menu. She deduced we were Canadian because my mom used the word 'pardon me'. She said only... More

At least they are consistent. Consistently poor. Every Applebee's I go to is just plain terrible. The menu is exciting, and you can't beat the late night specials, but that is where it ends. The service is lacking, and it seems like EVERY time they mess up the order. I am not sure if this is the fault of the... More

Service was lacking... no attention to detail. Could not articulate ingredients in dishes very well. Maybe did not know the menu well? Did not seem flexible to leave out unwanted items. for some reason different preparation than Bay City Applbee's.

I don't expect much from chain restaurants, you usually know what you are getting ahead of time. That being said, even my already low expectations weren't met. Typically you will find a few OK big name beers on tap (Sam Adams / Amber Bock / Etc.), but this location did not even have that, only you standard fare light beers... More

Our waiter made three huge mistakes on our order, no free or take off charges, just wait for the proper food to come. Maybe it was our server, not sure, food was okay.

Okay, so you just can't beat the value: 2 steak dinners and an appetizer for $20 and the food was excellent!!! Ya gotta try the Potato Twisters with the warm Queso Blanco dip. Ask to sit in Gayle's section - fantastic lady!

After shopping at the Birch Run Outlet stores, we were hungry! My son and his fiance each had a pasta dish. My son thought it should have had more sauce but ate it up. I had the chicken roll up as I love the Mexicali dip! The whole meal was good and the service was right up there too.
