I like to go here whenever I'm in milpitas, because I know the menu and what to expect and the staff is always great to deal with. I like to substitute some items and ask for my food prepared differently than on the menu, and they always do a great job of it here. Plus, it's in a very convenient... More

Pretty decent. It was close to our hotel and stayed open late. Great options on a large menu and service was good. Will visit again.

This place is what one can expect from an applebees.It has food at the cheaper side of the spectrum, of reasonable quality. Unfortunatly my medium Rare steak was well done, and the flavour was as result not to my expectations. Nevertheless it is one of the better applebees, and previous visits were better.

We enjoyed the food and it was easy to find. If you don't want to wait for table go to the bar seating its quick and easy.

This is a chain restaurant doing nothing to distinguish itself. And, as another reviewer said the food is "high calorie", everything seems to be soaked in butter or fat.

Drinks are expensive if you go off the menu ($7 for a shot of vodka), food is average and don't recommend ordering wine as they'll just bring you any hoping that you won't notice. My friend got white instead of read which was pretty obvious...

Had a dinner there, felt like a couple of levels above fast food. Good if you are looking for a quick , near the hotel, high calories meal.

Believe this particular Applebee's is a bot above average from the normal ones, has easy access and plenty of parking. Is fairly large, so most of the time their is not a wait, as long as you do not arrive at the height of Lunch or Dinner time. They have a good menu, and the staff is friendly, they will... More

Good Food no matter what you order I had the Chinese Chicken Salad all I can say is YUMMY! Great place to also go hang out with friends in the bar, Pina' Colada also YUMMY, and watch your favorite sports game, but the restaurant is a family one also.
