Had a hamburger with sweet potato fries. Both were delicious. The hamburger was the best I've had in a very long time. Cooked to perfection.

Just another chain restaurant. It is always clean, food is fine, drinks are not very strong, service is ok, parking more than adequate.

This place has it all friendly staff a good atmosphere and good food too. A good place to chill after a long and maybe even catch up on the lates sport as there are loads of TV's to see all sports.

This was a convenient location for suppers. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. As a single woman travelling alone, it felt like a nice safe place to have a good meal and relax.

Me and my girlfriend stopped by to eat and watch a basketball game. We were greeted at entrance by hostess, and given choices where to sit. We change spots twice by our choice for a better view of game. The staff were very accommodating. Chris our bartender and waiter was busy but he made us feel welcomed and was great... More

Food Quality as gone down severely. The hamburgers we ordered were much smaller than usual and the taste was average. Don't know if this applies across the board on all menu items but when you walk out still hungry this is disappointing. Thumbs down!

I found an Applebee's within walking distance of my hotel. Not fancy, but good, reasonably priced food and friendly service. Away from home, near my hotel, it was the perfect choice.

Forgot that it was Mothers day and after a day of traveling needed dinner. Had gone to a couple other restaurants in the area and the wait was over an hour so tried Applebee's before settling for fast food and were seated right away. It was good. The service was slow and the new device that they use at the... More

We used to eat there often with the family. Over time, the food has gotten average. The staff there is generally very friendly and the service is good so it is not a bad place to eat. We usually sit in the bar area, no waiting, a sporting event is on the big screens. For travelers, it is fine. They... More

Arrived into Petaluma after a 40 hour journey at 11pm and thought everything will be closed but right next to our hotel was this restaurant so we pulled at the door and it opened. Had myself some wings, NY strip with mash and broccoli and ribs and to wash it all down three Lagunitas IPA. Carina who was the bartender... More
