I was really impressed with the soup & salad special, especially for a chain restaurant. We both chose from the "classic" menus...the soup (I had the cauliflower cheese, my friend had the tomato basil) was so good...very homemade and tasty, And the spinach salad was delicious with a homemade dressing with bits of bacon and tomato. It came with an... More

Just had a couple of hours to kill and what better place than an Applebee's. 8 of us enjoyed a number of different drinks, all mixed to perfection. But what was really great was the fact that they never let our chips and salsa go dry. It just magically kept filling back up. Wish that happened at home. Anyway, I... More

Let me start with the good stuff. The place was clean, service was friendly, and the food was good. I was left a little disappointed by the menu. Just seemed like the options were limited and many of the meals had limited options on the sides. Overall I did enjoy my meal. The food was cooked as I ordered it.... More

We always enjoy eating at an Applebyee's - a good selection of great food at reasonable prices, and always good service.

We arrived in Madison, after 10 pm on a weeknight. As usual for Madison, almost all restaurants were closed. To our surprise Applebee's was open, I think until 1 AM, so people were actually still arriving and ordering. The waitress was friendly and energetic, especially for it getting close to 11pm . She explained right away the couple items the... More

Too cookie cutter, but guess that's what chains are supposed to be. Food is ok, drinks are expensive. Not a regular stop.

Great service! Had the 2 for $20 which was a lot of food and it tasted great. Ordered chips and queso which was so good and they give you quite a bit compared to other places. Kids eat almost free on mondays and tuesdays. They also do special things for military, police officers and teachers about once a yr. So... More
