We got to Lake Tahoe and we were very hungry, so we decided to have lunch at Applebee's. The service from the staff was good but the food was not good, I usually eat all of my food, but this time I could not eat the rice they served, it was dry and had a bad taste, the meat was... More

You know what you are getting when you go to Applebees and I had no complaints. The service was good, the beer was good, the restaurant was clean and the price was pretty good as well. The restaurant is bigger than you think when you walk in so there should be no problem getting a table. I had a nicely... More

Applebee's is always a great place to eat light and have a good beer. We visit this establishment a lot when we are in Tahoe.

Had wonderful service. I believe his name was Loren. We never had to call him by name because he was on top of everything. He knew what we needed before we asked and brought it to the table. Definitely going back.

Felt insulted. The guy at the door is so rude asking me where are you going five time in a row. I was confused and I was just going to the table by myself without waiting for a waiter coming with me. That guy is a ah.

I just always forget that I don't really care for this restaurant. I asked the server about ingredients in what I was ordering, and she gave me the wrong information, resulting in my disliking the meal very much.

We eat at Applebee's all the time so when we saw one in Lake Tahoe, I thought it would be fine. My husband's steak was not edible. My brother's pasta was bland, and my club house grill sandwich was missing half the ingredients. The crispy cheddar bacon potato side that we paid extra for was missing the bacon and then... More

We stopped for dinner. The food was excellent, large portions and very tasty. The service however was only OK. We didn't receive cutlery and needed to ask for, the waiter just brought the bill without offering a desert, the feeling was like saying "you finished your meal now pay the bill and get out" Anyhow it is a good place...

I liked the asian chicken salad. The service was good and setting was nice. I had to level my patio table with sugar packets. Took a long time to get dessert. Overall not a bad experience.

The food was good. The facility is a little dark inside but otherwise everything was worth the price. It was not expensive at all.
