Great soup & salads

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... read more

Everything was fine. Just that they discontinued my favorite appetizer. That was what especially came there for along with a cocktail.

Our lunch started out a little rocky...our waitress did not seem too inspired to take our order. A few minutes later, a new waitress took over, informing us our waitress was sick and decided to go home. We wondered what kind of Koodies she had spread! From that point on our new waitress tried to do double duty and did... More

I visited this Applebee's and everything tasted like plastic. My drink smelled like chlorine. Although the costumer service was good the food quality is not satisfying

We took a group to this Applebee’s because their website said “half price apps after 9PM”. Come to find out this restaurant waits until 10PM to start this offer. When I questioned this I was given short answers and what turned out to be lies. Nobody seemed interested in my concerns and rushed me out of my table so someone... More

We stopped here for lunch before our 2 trip home. We were seated immediately by the host. Our waitress was very friendly and nice to talk to. We ordered the onion rings for an appetizer, which she put in right away. While we waited for that she returned to ask about our entree selection. I ordered the firecracker chicken and... 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
