Fun atmosphere, typical bar food plus meals. Oriental Salad is the bomb! Staff is pleasant and accommodating of special requests.

Fast service and our chicken wasn't dried out either. The place was packed and we didn't have to wait long at all for our dinner!!!

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

Had one of their specials - two for $25.00. My husband had the shrimp dish and I had steak. We had the spinach dip appetizer. Everything tasted good and service was good. Would recommend it.

Won't go back anytime soon. We always loved Applebee's, and we're looking forward to the food we had come to expect. We arrived a little after six, and they were busy. But it's not like they didn't know they would be busy. We ordered 4 cheese mac and cheese with honey peppered chicken, and fried shrimp. There was little or... More

Very good food and a good selection on their 2 for $20.00 menu, I have never been big on grill burgers and steaks but I hear there stuff is excellent to those who do like that stuff. Appetizers are excellent.

I had not been to Applebee's for several years because the food and service had gotten so bad, particularly at this Middletown/Franklin location. Our family gave them a try this past week and we were pleasantly surprised. The location has been remodeled and clearly has new management. The salad greens were fresh and crisp, and all of our food was... More

I haven't eaten here in quite awhile because I felt the food went way down. We stopped in for dinner and I was quite surprised. It had been remodeled & decorated with local scenes & teams sports logos. Much more relaxing than the crazy mess before. We sat in a row of tables in the left front. I did not... More

first of all we were there at a shift change, according to the waitress so were left sitting! Placed our order and one came back incorrectly so while one person ate, one watched. I ordered the steak and honestly, I think more of it was returned on my plate than was eaten, it was so tough. A very disappointing visit!... More
