This place is always crowded. Best to go early, service is better then. They have appetizer specials everyday, half off, from 3-6 and 9-12 . They are all good, esp the onion rings and large portions too. Personally I think their hamburgers are overrated and are not worth the $10 pricetag.

We talk ourselves into going into Applebee's every six months and always the same. Poor service, warm food very loud and everything tastes the same. Now with the order at the table dealo you never see anyone except when they drop off your food... Better choices in Oak Harbor !

I met a couple of friends here yesterday. We came in at 3 which was in the happy hour special time. Certain appetizers were half off which was really nice. I had ordered the boneless buffalo wings. They were delicious. They added some kind of seasoning to the top of the wings and it added a great flavor to the... More

We've never been to an Applebee's before. Nothing to brag about, it's just average. Salad was only average, Soup was too salty for our paletes.

Enjoyed all the food options. We both had a pasta dish that was very good, not too large. Prices reasonable. Service was friendly, helpful, and quick to respond.

We went for the Monday night 6.99 burgers with refill on fries. The service was so slow. Our burgers were eaten before she came back to check on how we were doing, how the food was or if we wanted more fries. At which point it was another 15 minutes before more were served (which were way too salty). The... More

Food and service was very good. I had the Penne Chicken. The only complaint I have is with the bar stools in the bar area. They are heavy and very difficult to maneuver, especially if you aren't a tall person. With 3 on one side of the table, it is very difficult to get out.

We visited on a very wet Monday in mid afternoon so it wasn’t at all busy. The hostess quickly had us seated in a booth and organized our drinks order while we pondered the value menu (2 entree and a shared starter for $20). The boneless buffalo wings were tasty and accompanied with some very fresh and crisp celery. The... More

Not very crowded but service a little slow. Menus and water fast. Order taking prompt, then the wait... We had our snack fries done when food showed up. Wife's fish and chips had more breading than she liked. My shrimp linguini was OK, not great. Refills on ice tea prompt. Probably won't go back.
