Flat bread

I was somewhat disappointed with the wait time, although it was on a Friday evening. The made at the table appetizer was average, the flatbread was tasty, but the moscato was excellent.

I stopped for a quick bite on my way to a meeting. I ordered a cheeseburger at the bar as there was no one seating customers. The menu said pink or not pink. I ordered the hamburger PINK. It came out gray. The service was not spectacular but adequate. I won't stop here again. There must be better places to... More

The food is Applebees, and I can't complain about it. But the wait staff and management are terrible. Been here several times and it is always the same.

Consistent quality and friendly staff make this location a favorable stop. Food met or exceeded my expectations, TV's made me happy to not miss a game while dining.

The food came out on time, it was prepared as requested, and it was hot. The service was decent, as was the price. I'll probably pass if in the area again, there are better local places around.

The service is usually very slow. We waited over an hour for our food and then it came out cold. They definitely need better training of their staff. Atmosphere is fine and restaurant is clean, but the food is average at best and the service is slow.

It was busy as we visited on a Saturday night, but we were shown to a table right away. Our server was great, and the food was very good. We always enjoy Applebees

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. Our waitress was very unfriendly and rushed - when she showed... More

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.
