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

Needed a quick dinner, couple of beers and done. Bartender Carrie was very friendly and nice. I know its a chain, but I like Applebees.

A friend and I were in the area visiting for work and decided to out for appetizers and drinks. Applebee's is usually our go to spot, after this experience however we may think twice. The restaurant was very busy and being in the customer service industry I understand how difficult a rush can be . You could tell by the... More

It's a chain and they are all pretty much the same. Food is good & reasonably priced, so I will rate the service: excellent. We were tired from driving over 5 hours and it was getting late so we picked Applebee's knowing it was open and had decent food. Between the 2 of us we had an order of fried... More

You would think that I would have learned by now. I keep getting talked into going here with friends who haven't been here yet. Every time that I have been in this restaurant, it seems dirty - trash/food on the floor, sticky tables, etc. So last night, after being coerced with half-price appetizers, I went in - hoping that things...
