Consistent chain food

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... read 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.

I will always pop to Applebees when I visit family in Rensselaer. I know what to expect. I do feel that the prices are a tad steep but my son, 5, enjoys eating here and the lunch menu is a good price. I do enjoy the chicken, steak and pasta dishes and they have a good selection of these dishes.... More
