We eat at a lot of Applebee s restaurants, love the two for $20 deal and the oriental chicken salad. Today we ordered boneless wings as an appetizer. The celery that came with it was unwashed, big chunks of dirt on every piece. We showed our server, but she took no action at all. Hope the salad lettuce was clean.

Very nice dinner, great and helpfull staff. There is a screen on the TV where you can play different games while you wait (for an additional charge). This can be used for kids while waiting for the food or when you're with friends Trivia. We didn't use it, but I can imagine it is a nice way to spend the... More

Thought I give applebees another chance, but that had mixed results. Service and attention of servers was excellent, but the food just about killed everything. The wonton tacos were so so. Had much better ones at other applebees. The entree was downright insulting. Rubbery chicken, bland over salted, over spiced. The rest of the meal was awful. The side order... More

Good food served in a prompt manner after a hike in Joshua Tree. We were not familiar with the area and liked the Starbucks and Applebee's close proximity.

The service was good however the menu items were from a variety of fried frozen foods and beverages were priced very high. The did have a happy hour that offered 1/2 priced appetizers. A bit spendy for the food and beverage but comfortable atmosphere.

The food was horrible, looked like it was shifted from one plate to another. The food tasted as if if was outdated old or even mixed with some chemical..spit the food out. This was a real bed experience. They need to fire the cook and hire a chef..wish I could give this 0 stars..it deserves none. Will never go back... More

This place usually has good service, but the food is mediocre most of the time. Portions aren't great for the price. If you want to get the best deal, go on the night kids eat for a dollar, or at happy hour to get 1/2 price apps.

Best date me and my fiancé have had in a while. We spent the day shopping, went to a matinee then came out just in time for happy hour here. We filled our table with drinks and appetizers by using only a fraction of what we normally spend when we go out to eat!
