This is Applebee's so my expectations were not high. However, we were still disappointed with how the food tasted as it tasted very processed and sodium heavy. Also, even though there were very few patrons, our waiter was not readily available. I guess he chose to hand out back in the kitchen instead where his customers were - you know... More

We went their thinking it would be like any other Applebee's and boy were we in for a surprise. It was nice at first glance and then as you traveled in and to your table after the hostess got done dancing in the middle of the floor we heard some pretty loud music and awful singing.....it was a karaoke machine...

Been coming here regularly for over 2 years. Consistently good food and friendly service. Double Crunch Shrimp is one of our favorites. I like that they are willing to adjust for my special diet. The fresh steamed broccoli is wonderful. Love this place.

The food was stupendous. The service was amazing as well. I don't see how people do not like it, as I am a regular customer and all of my times have been great. I was even there with a party of 20 and I had an enjoyable time. Will continue to be a regular.

Food was greasy, salty, overpriced and small, small portions. I am not a big eater, but the salad was about 10 pieces of wilted spinach, and the bread for the half sandwich (photo showed a full sandwich) was DRIPPING grease and not even toasted. "tuscan bread?" don't be fooled. Unless Tuscany has been relocated, this is very thin walmart french... More

I have to say that this review is from a long time back, but I see from reading the other reviews that nothing has changed, this visit was after a very bad time in Brenham with a hurricane bearing down on Houston and literally thousands of people fleeing Houston up Hwy 290. We were not affected by the storm as... More

After having good experience at another Applebee's, we decided to have lunch at the Brenham Applebee's Sunday. 7/28/2013. What a monumental letdown. We got waited on pretty quickly but it went downhill fast after that. The waitress messed up my wife's order and it had to be delivered in two trips. Really...for a soup and sandwich. Her sandwich was unrecognizable... More

The service was friendly and quick - with a smile. The food was typical for Applebee's - do not expect a gourmet experience. You get what you pay for in this restaurant. We will go back again for the quick and comfortable meal.

I went to Applebee's in Brenham for lunch today with two coworkers. Hadn't eaten here in years, and now I remember why. The place was only half full, with almost all the patrons seated on the east side of the bar. My friends and I were seated at the big booth in the corner. After waiting for 15 minutes without...
