Good Meal, Good Times

The manager on duty stopped by our table and made some jokes and really added to the atmosphere. Our waitress was ok. I was aggravated at the waitress at the table next to us as she was making fun of how the people talked. Had she been my waitress I would've have gotten up and left. I had the... read more

I haven't eaten at Applebee's in quite awhile. Tonight I remembered why. Took My grandson for his birthday. I got the shrimp stir fry. I asked if I could change it to chicken. Server said OK. when I got it, it was shrimp. (Not servers fault. Kitchen's fault) They agreed to fix it. I got it back in a minute... More

I really enjoyed the new pasta dinner with chicken tenders. This item is a new addition to the s for $25.00 items. Loved having a new choice in that category.

Followers know I am not a chain kind of girl, so you know this is a great place. This is a very "happenin" place. Busy on Friday night with the hometown sports team kids on a date, families and couples out for date night. If the lot is full, do NOT shy away, service is fast. Some are here for... More

Applebee's is just ok. I give it up to the company that it seems like they are trying to improve the bland food they have always had. So it is getting somewhat better than years past. However the staff is for the most part very friendly.

Our children like to go here for salads and soup. Last time we ate here, our adult son ordered two salads. Menu is varied and food is dependable.

Fun atmosphere, typical bar food plus meals. Oriental Salad is the bomb! Staff is pleasant and accommodating of special requests. Vegetarians and vegans If you do not want the chicken on your salad ask for it on the side to take home or give to someone else because they will charge you for it even if you don't get it.... More

Just so you know that I'm not some sort of anti chain snob or can't enjoy the familiarity of this type of place. The staff here in Middletown is exceptional. Jo and Carrie took care of me while on business and made me want to come back. Not a lot of choices here in this highway stopover so can't compare... More
