Not as good as it looks

Don't usually eat at Applebee's but wanted a change from Chili's as we were driving through. Menu has very interesting choices - I ordered two appetizers - but neither were very good and not nearly as good as they sounded on the menu. My friend's food wasn't stellar either.

Applebee's in Brenham is one of our favorites. The service is usually good and the food well prepared. However, the wine selection is poor and the prices never published for review. They need to change this policy or quit selling wine altogether.

Close to the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express, it provides a good value meal for the traveller in this location.

I ordered Car Side takeout and arrived approximately 5 minutes AFTER I was told my order would be ready. I waited 10 minutes in the Car Side parking spaces and finally walked in to the restaurant. A gentleman working for the restaurant ask me if I was there for a take out order and I answered yes. He gestured toward... More

Staying at a hotel right next door plus working late, this restaurant was too convenient. I am now somewhat of an expert after eating 5x in a row, all "to go" for three people. I know this place just gets ok reviews but the food in consistently good, great promos during their week and stays open till 2:00am. Their drive... More

Sadly most reviews show bad, poor or horrible service for this Applebee's location. I was surprised to see so many bad reviews for service. The food was great, the selection wonderful and the taste perfect. It was just hard to get taken care of and checked up on. Other than that, is was ok. Maybe more servers would have helped....but...

Typical Applebee's - average food, average service, noisy, has a jukebox that plays loud plus the televisions are blaring too. Prices all seem to be $9.99. Maybe it's because it's in a small town, but this Applebee's could be much better. Seems to be busy with locals. I guess we should have tried Chili's down the road but it was... More

I let my first experience go as a novelty, but two bad experiences in a row deserves a write up. Server burnt out. No the place wasn't busy, the server was just burnt out, probably has been that way for years. Slow, did not get my drink until 10 minutes after placing it - was wrong. Looked around to ask... More

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
