My steak was great-tasting and lean. Service at the bar was really quick, and the barmaid didn't make fun of me for drinking only a large milk.

We brought to the manager's attention on our last trip that on that trip and the one before there were some very bad service. On this night we were given our menus and waited almost 10 minutes before getting a wait staff member and we had to get them. There were plenty of people around but it was not well... More

Our server was attentive but not a pest. She really knew what she was doing! Excellent service and friendly! The prices were good on the food. A margarita was almost $10 so I'd stick with domestic beer. The 2 for $20 deal was great for us! Tge food was excellent too!

We ate a late lunch here at Applebees. The food was good, the service was okay. Our waiter, Mario, was somewhat friendly but didn't come back to our table very often. In the past at other Applebee's we've ordered the 2/$20 deals and if we order 3 we have been charged only $10 for the 3rd entree. When I asked... More

We had a great family lunch here recently and really enjoyed their lunch combo's along with good service. Not too bad for big corporate national chain as long as they stay consistent.

We had several meals there and it was the usual reliable restaurant for us. We have a few favorite menu items, and they didn't fail to deliver what we had expected and what we were used to.
