Had dinner here while in town for a visit with the family. We chose Applebee's because we typically know what to expect. Wife had pasta which was good. My bourbon street steak was a little more gristly than normal but cooked to my liking. The...triple chocolate cake dessert was great. Service was excellent.More

Had late evening flight and stopped for dinner with party of five. Seated quickly and personable server (Sam) arrived immediately. Took drink order which came right away and placed food order which was delivered shortly thereafter. Food was good---house salads were huge with fresh, crisp...lettuce, tasty tomatoes and cucumbers along with cheddar cheese and croutons. Choice of several dressings served on the side. Tortilla soup was delicious--just spicy enough--- while the grilled cheese was large and served on Texas toast. The chicken quesadilla also hit the spot. Only miscue was the 4 cheese mac and cheese not to our liking! Prices were quite reasonable while the restaurant is very convenient to Gateway hotel locations, Interstate 70 and DEN airport. Will be back next time in Denver.More

Edible.. Let's just say the shrimp weren't double fried as the menus states,( I think they were fully cooked, I'm not sure if they were.. , I'm praying I dont have food poisoning in the morning) the broccoli was barley steamed way way to much...cunch, and the coleslaw was edible at best.. I would skip this and just go to outback ! The service was decent.More

We stopped in for dinner at about 5 pm. The restaurant was already quite busy. We sat at a table in the bar. Our waitress was excellent, I forgot to get her name. We ordered a beer and hamburgers. The burgers came with fries. When...it was delivered, I found it was one of the best burgers I’ve had all year. If you decide to eat here you won’t go wrong.More

Good solid location for Applebee's. Very near my hotel. You know what to expect and what you'll get. Had a nice young lady named Sam who waited on us - she was great!

Very clean, Covid 19 compliant, nice wait staff, clean dishes and utensils- that said the menu is fully up. I thought they put too many greens in my Southwest Steakbowl and not enough guacamole. Wings are available in the too small appetizer section or the...too huge feed many people size. Great coffee.More

We had a large group gather today after a memorial service. The staff really worked to accomodate us, while respecting COVID safety measures. They were super friendly and didn't mind doing all the separate checks. And the food came out sizzling, and was served quickly!

Friendly hosting and wait staff. Overall very slow service which is usually the fault of the kitchen staff. Two of our four entrees were incorrect or included items we asked to be taken off. Again, the fault of the kitchen, but server should have verified...before delivery.More

It seemed no rush to seat ppl their was a party of 10 waiting and 2 other parties waiting to be helped not busy at all it was a Sunday evening. I noticed anyone showing up after we were seated had to stand their wondering...is their a hostess ? Our waitress BRIANA D. got our menu's after a chat section w/a customer at the bar. Food was Applebee's typical cold fries and dry ribs. On my second beer order she never delivered bartender realized she disappeared and then delivered. We were never asked how was the food . The only person whos was hustling was the bartender he got my tip.More

Generally we like Applebee's because the food is good and there's a good variety. So we thought Carside To Go would be the same, just take out. Well, it wasn't. They didn't have the full menu, but we still found items we liked. They asked...for our car color and type and told us when it would be ready. We offered to pay at the time of order, but they said no, pay at pick up. We were there 5 minutes after ready time. We waited 5 more minutes and finally called to let them know we were there. So even though they had the car color and type, they weren't watching for us. And there weren't that many cars in the lot. Got our food and went home and discovered no napkins or silverware. Luckily we were at home. How do you eat pasta or a chicken breast without a fork or even a spoon. Glad we weren't in a park. Then after we ate and I was looking over my receipt, I saw where my 2 for $22 meal cost $24.50. Why the extra $2.50? (Receipt attached) I still love Applebee's but we'll be going inside from now on.More

been a long time since I had been to Applebees. But the craft beer from Fort Collins CO and the seemingly grilled or roasted quesadilla were spot on. Odell Brewing Company featuring 90 shillings, a very tasty amber, was on tap at this Applebees. There...was one other craft offering on tap here. thanks for a nice light dinnerMore

Service was absolutely great. Waitress was amazing and the food came quickly and delicious. It was right across the street from our hotel so it was the perfect location for our stay. Good service is hard to find these days but they are doing a...wonderful job at it.More

I have been to several applebees but this by far was the best. I got there about 10:30pm and figured it would be slow. The place was busy but we got right in. We placed our order and even before the conversation got really going...the food arrived at our table. Everbodys food was great and we never had to look for our waiter he was right there every time a drink needed to be refilled.More
