This place we have had multiple issues with in the past. It's been a good 6 months since I ate there so with their rib special we decided to try again. Big mistake. Waitress didn't seem like she cared, never smiled, and when the food took forever to come she not never came back. Update: the manager brought out the... More

Ate here for lunch to celebrate a family birthday. They set us up in the "sun room" area where we could push a number of tables together. The staff was very helpful and the food was good. In a convenient location just of the highway and a central location for all the family attending. I had the bacon cheeseburger and... More

Applebee's is a good choice if there is a mobility problem. There are two exits and a person can easily use one of the two. They are also good at getting a table close to a bathroom or the door if requested. This evening we were celebrating our mothers birthday. Her food looked delicious and she ate almost all of... More

First of all, I didn't expect much from Applebee's to begin with. We just moved here in January, the first night after arriving we decided to order online. I got a strawberry lemonade with my meal & the only option available was a 32oz. When we showed up there was no hostess by the door & no one approached us... More

We checked in and everyone who came after us were seated for at least 20 min. After 50 min wait I checked with hostess and he stated it would be at least another 25 min wait. Obviously a very overworked hostess with no communication skills or ability to accomodate customers. I will never again visit this restaurant.

Had not visited this location in quite some time. Nothing much changed, just older and some remnants of smoking smell. Okay, but not worth the price. Seating away from booths very cramped.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the 2 entrees and an appetizer for $20 deal. We shied away from Applebees, as the drinks and appetizers are greatly overpriced; however the deal brought us back. The entrees were very good,and the appetizer was so large, we took some home. The table was clean, and the service was... More

The average rating I give is a gift. The place needs some TLC; the booth seat is ripped, the carpet worn, the table top scratched. The food was basic, nothing special (I had the corn chowder, it was poor). I have been to better Applebee's.

I previously gave this Applebees an unfavorable review but decided to give them another chance as there aren't many good restaurants in Fond du Lac. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the service and food had improved greatly from my previous visit and was more like the Applebees I had enjoyed so many times in the past. I have... More

I had a sandwich that was good and fairly priced. The downside was that the table was sticky even after it being wiped off. Server was just ok. Would not be my first choice but it was ok for lunch.
