Good food but the servers seemed grumpy.

Went for a family supper and was quite happy with the food. The prices were fair for the amount of food that we received. The only downside was that the serving staff all seemed a bit grumpy. Pleasant enough but a bit grumpy.

My friend and I ate lunch and my pasta dish was warm. I prefer food to be hot when it has a creamy sauce. The waitress seemed bored and always disappeared. TIP for staff there. Try smiling. GOOD thing that food is economical. I will try a new restaurant on my next visit to Great Falls.

Excellent service and food. Good value, we had the two for $25 and others in our group had the two for $20. Both good and huge portions

It seems like a dinner rush but my wife were seated with very minimal wait. My wife had the salmon dinner plate and I had the Philly sandwich, mixed drink, and of course a blondie to share. Food and service was excellent!

The food here is consistently prepared correctly. The wait staff is usually above average, with the occasional exception. I'd say it's pretty well managed. This place can get really busy most weekend evenings. It's a family favorite.

.....whether a location in Canada or the States. We were happy to find an Applebees in Great Falls for lunch with our friends and it didn't disappoint. Their 'two can dine for $20 (or $25) is wonderful, big servings and delicious options. We'll be back on our next trip to GF.

We met a friend from out of town at Applebee's last week for dinner. I ordered the 9 oz. steak, it was delicious, cook right & very tender! I also asked that the fries be cooked crisp, they were! I also really enjoyed the cooked veggies that came with this dinner! I am not sure what my wife had, a... More

We have found Applebee's to be a good restaurant in most of the places we have traveled, and this was a good location, as well. The servers are friendly and helpful, and the food consistently good. We had a group of seven eating there, and the food was good and delivered timely and hot. Very nice supper.

We went to Applebee's and got good and fast service, nice food. Surprisingly we saw a lot of senior citizens around us in the restaurant. Not surprisingly for these prices and the extensive choice of good and sometimes healthy food. I wouldn't cook myself...a very nice surprise.... Also for a younger crowd it should be appealing .

We had supper at Appleby's when we visted Great Falls in 2014 and we were very pleased with the food and customer service. The restaurant is a bit out of the way but GPS got us there without any problem. The restaurant is well worth going to!
