Applebee's was within walking distance of our hotel, so we thought we would give it a try. There were many choices on the menu, and everything was reasonably priced. The service was friendly and attentive. I decided to have the cedar plank salmon which was delicious; my husband had a club sandwich which he enjoyed. The atmosphere was pleasant, and... More

Our server was very good food was as good as it gets for a chain restaurant. Standard menu with many options to choose from. We only waited 10 minutes on a Friday night @ 6 pm... not bad at all for a Friday.

The wait staff was very helpful and friendly. Our food was very tasty and average in price. This is a place where you can find good food and a decent atmosphere.

Applebee's is a good restaurant for me when I want a burger or something above fast food. Have had no problem with service and the food is consistent and good. Only complaint is you have to sit in the bar to get happy hour prices on alcohol. You can't get it at a booth or table in the restaurant.

Enjoyed a very tasty lunch today and had very good service. I highly recommend the shrimp stir fry. Shrimp were done perfectly and had delicious seasoning. Also, ended the meal with a "brownie bite" for $1.49. It was a decent slice of brownie with one scoop of ice cream. Just the right ending to the meal.

It's an Applebee's - how much can be said? But our server (who's name, I can't find or remember) was great - friendly, helpful, the whole 9 yards.

If you go to an Applebee's you generally don't get too many surprises even though there is a bit of variety in the quality between restaurants. Here the food was certainly not bad, but not up to the best although the prices are reasonable for what you get. The only real complaint was the the cola from the fountain certainly... More

Wonderful food and service. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient. Very good experience. This helped offset the poor experience we had with the nearby hotel in Aurora

Two of us ate here and we had good service and the food was good with the exception of my steak. It was overcooked just a little but the worst thing was it was full water so tasted a little boiled.

Thank Steve R
