I like the after 10pm half off appetizers.

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... read more

Alright, so my mom, sisters and I all decided to go out to grab a bite to eat. We choose downtown Applebee's. We get there, yeah it's a littl packed so we wait for about ten to fifteen minutes to be seated. We get get seated, NO waitress comes to our table for about fifteen minutes. So time is passing...

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.

Got there very late (the other places we wanted to eat were closed!) and were able to take advantage of the variety and quality of many menu items. Staff was willing to split meals and split checks. Food was delicious, though not always exactly as ordered or described by the menu. This was a very popular restaurant on a Friday... More

When we first saw that there was an applebees right near our hotel, we were excited. We walked in and it was really empty, which should have been a warning, but we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. It took a little bit to be seated, but I wasn't too bothered by that. As we were walking to... More

Applebee's is Applebee's. Generally no surprises with the menu. This one has a very convenient downtown location and, when I was there at least, did a brisk take out service. I'm guessing that this is a function of proximity to many downtown hotels. That's why I was there and I got what I wanted from take out: It was ready... More

Came in for lunch around noon and there was about 5 people in the restaurant. I asked for a sprite or Sierra mist and I was advised by the waitress who was training that they did not have sprite "today." So I ordered a unsweetened tea instead. Moving along... My friend and I ordered from the 2 for $20 menu.... More

Would not recommend this place for food, although it is in a prime location it lacks direction, waitresses with attention to the customer, and the food tasted precooked. not worth it
