Typical Applebee's experience in downtown Milwaukee

This restaurant was located near our downtown hotel. Since we had kids who did not like to try many foods, we figured this would be a safe bet for dinner one night. I think that if you have been to one Applebee's, you pretty much know what to expect here. The food is good but not great. Service is... read more

It was a busy Saturday night and after being told by several restaurants that there was a two hour wait for a table 20 minutes sounds fine. We were shown to a table by a very friendly member of staff and it immediately obvious that they were busy but after 20 minutes we had watched 3 people leave without ordering,... More

The fish and chips were OK , the waitress was pleasant enough,but she let herself down. When the coffee arrived, it was part in the cup, part in the saucer, serviette soaking, a bit of a mess.

I had the two for $25 dish, I had chicken appetizers which were okay, and a chicken breast/shrimp dish. The entree was very oily, the shrimp was okay and the chicken could've been better. I am not a fan of Applebee's and would suggest eating somewhere else, take in mind I have eaten in this food chain a few times... More

I go there after work since there are only few places open at that it plus half off of appetizers. After 10pm a person needs to show their ID for security reasons, I was surprised the first time since I am in my 40's years of age. But that is the policy. When I go back if it after 10pm... More

The ambient is standard to all Applebee's restaurants. The food is good, but does not worth the price they charge. And to make things worst, the service is slow. Very, very, very slow. The visit was only pleasant because of the friends.

While we enjoyed our entrees, our service was slow and our waitress did not seem to know the menu very well.

We ended our evening of exploring Milwaukee with an ice cream shooter at Applebee's. it was not a huge order, but the staff made our time there great fun! For being late in the evening they were so full of energy and fun that it was the perfect way to end our evening in Milwaukee.
