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.

Smiling friendly service, but it bugs me when they have to come back to ask how you want your steak cooked. My wife had the lemon chicken with rice and she thought it was great. I had a 9 oz sirloin and it was superb. I ordered medium and it arrived medium well (no pink at all) but the cut... More

My friend and I had a hard time deciding as this was a new menu for us since our last visit. We decided on appetizers giving us different choices. We had chips and salsa, loved having both green and red salsa, chicken quesadilla, and boneless wings Asian flavor. I liked everything we had. Lastly I wanted some dessert, so I... More

My family and I traveled out to Colorado from Maine. We have an Applebee's in Maine, which we rarely go to. However this one was located with in walking distance from our hotel. Everyone was really hungry and tired so we decided to try it out. I was extremely happy with the service and the food was very good. I... More

After a long day travelling, we were relieved to learn Applebee's would give us a 10% discount for using our Holiday Inn room key. We ordered a $4 plate of the smallest fried pot stickers I've ever seen! I prefer mine steamed but that wasn't an option. My 12 year old ordered the ribs...she doesn't like a lot of sauce... More
