“The usual, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Do not let your kids order the kid's sirloin. It was horrible and had it sent back for chicken fingers.

“GREAT FAMILY RESTAURANT WITH AFFORDABLE PRICES!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Yes, Applebee's is a chain restaurant like Sizzler, but it's a great place to either take the family or to hang out & watch the game while having a drink. It's not fancy, but it's clean, the service is friendly & helpful, the food & drinks are good, and their 2 for $20 deals are tasty and affordable. We go there 4-6 times a year and highly recommend it. Just one drawback: For my husband the steaks are small (7 oz.) and he likes his plate piled with food. He could eat the entire cow and still want more though, so it's a matter of perspective. I always take home leftovers.

“Seriously, a 5* rating for an Applebees?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

It's hilarious that a "SeniorTraveler" can rate an Applebee's as a 5* establishment. It's a chain restaurant with mediocre food and sometimes decent service. It's even better that a reviewer is posting *now* about a dining experience they had 7 months ago. Whatever.

“Chain? Yes. Still great? Yes indeed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I know that this is a chain restaurant, but they are so nice and well trained that the staff makes this location fell like a family-owned place to eat. The quality of the wait staff makes it special. The menu is chain-restaurant-consistent and obviously well-tested to be successful and tasty. The specials are varied and reasonably priced. The quality of the food preparation suggests something far better than a chain-level cook. There is a secret chef hiding somewhere back in the kitchen. The sandwiches are generous and delicious. The bar in the center offers the same fare as all Applebees but does not create distracting noise.

“Good food, easy location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Applebees is like McDonalds. It is consistent. Nice comfortable bar surrounded by dining tables. Good flat screen TV. Polite and efficient wait staff.
