Mediocre. Not a fan.

Only my second time at an Applebee's. The first time, at a different location, was very nice. Blackened shrimp & broccoli cavatappi, berry sangria, cafe Nelson, all just ok. Brownie dessert was good. Service was prompt and friendly. Would suggest making the trip to a Chili's for similar chain... read more

I love the idea they show the calories. This makes going out to eat a treat and you can enjoy what you are eating. They have a nice selection.

I'd say this was a 3 & 1/2 star experience. The chain tries to provide more of a local feel by personalizing the decor with photos of local sports teams (high school & college), etc. The booths & tables are spacious. The chain food is fine. They don't routinely give you bread or rolls with an entree, unless it's specified... More

I stopped in on Veterans Day to have lunch. I was greeted with friendly host staff and I requested that my party sit at the bar. We were directed and handed menus. I am a Veteran so I got a special menu. The bar tenders Rolyn and Victoria were superb friendly and attentive. Smiles all around. The Manager was friendly... More

My family and I have been coming here for years and our favorite is the nachos, but Every time we come Lately the portion gets smaller and smaller. Less goodies on top leaving you with a bunch of chips and nothing to put on them. For the amount they charge they should be piling those chips high and covering them... More

I ate at Applebee's this past week (which is now in the Home Depot plaza) with two friends and it was very good. Fresh food, good menu selections, good wine selections, good service, etc. I recently visited the Applebee's in Herkimer, NY after not eating at one for many years and the food here in Troy was a carbon copy...

We were seated quickly. 6 adults, 2 kids. Free refills on kids drinks including chocolate milk. Food was what you expect at Applebee's. A gratuity was automatically added to our bill of 18%, which was more than I would have left. Service was ok, not great.

Went to eat here with a party if 5. Service was only fair and so was the food. Nachos barely had anything on them. Mostly chips. Appetizers good but everything else was average or below.

Lousy service, barely adequate food, flies in the restaurant. We had to wait 30 minutes for this. Be aware busses often stop as well.
