Ok, but not great

As fairly frequent eaters at the Applebee's restaurants over the years, we believe the quality of food and service for all their franchises have slowly descended into the mediocre levels of eating out-and this franchise is no different. To keep it simple: on the positive side, you can expect a... read more

We stopped in a Applebee's for a quick meal. The food was ok, and the portions were smaller than I remember.

Travelling through Fond du Lac late we found Applebee's open until midnight. It was busy even at 10:00 p.m. but our server Zachery S. was right on top of things. We enjoyed the 2 for $20 dinner deal and of course were able to watch the Packer's game on the many tv's. in the bar and restaurant.

We just ordered sandwiches with three quarters of the restaurant empty and it took over 45 minutes to get them. Our waitress expresses how busy she was so they must have been short staffed. Food was good but we never got our drinks refilled. Disappointed this visit.

The food was good-but the service was mediocre-for an Applebee's I would have expected better. This is the fault of the current management. they are supposed to be walking the floor-checking if food and service was OK and that never happened! I had to ask to speak to a manager to complain about the lack of attention and the long... More

Had the fish, chicken and sampler. Was not sure what to expect and pleasantly surprised. On time delivery, correct items, nice temperature and very good taste. Would do again.

The new burgers are excellent and the fries are the best. I ordered a soda and it tasted bad. Told the server she got me another of the same kind, still tasted bad. They didn't offer to fix the machine or anything, so I wound up drinking something else (that wasn't my first choice). As much as they charge for... More

My daughters and I have stopped several times at Applebee's. Usually for their apps. This past Saturday we decided to get a bite to eat. We were sat immediately. We waited for over 20 minutes. Servers passed by, no one took our drink or food order. We finally got up to leave and were wished a good day. I asked... More

Something about the atmosphere gets on my nerves. If it's a place you enjoy anywhere else in the country then you'll like this one. Service was slow to get us a bill, but food was verging on good and up promptly. What perplexes me the most is the youngster patrons at the bar; it seems like the bar they go... More
