Things served separately, one at a time to include appetizer plates. Everything is sticky, to include the window sill and the electronic device on the table. Ewww.

Food is reasonably priced. Value for dollar is excellant. Manager Kaylee Otto was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Wait staff also very friendly and knowledgable!

This was our last resort, being a Sunday and not much else open. Food was bad, pre-packaged and tasted deep fried in old oil. I had the Brewhouse Crispy Chicken. Had to remind our waitress twice for pen so we could tip her on our bill. Clearly nobody tips that often or we would have had a pen with the... More

We were a group of six and we all had a great experience. Good food and good service. Wish that Applebees would not change their menu so often.

Atmosphere and menu is typical of Applebee's. Our waitress must have been new, she didn't know if they had any local beer and when my wife specifically asked for red onion she was told they only have white. Her meal came with red onions. Oh wrll, it's Applebee's.

Went to have a free meal on Vets Day, Excellent. Then went again last week April 13th. As usual service was fast and pleasant. The food was good but far from excellent.

We were with a large group that the restaurant accommodated nicely even though they were busy. The service was fine, the food was typical for an Applebee's, Chili's, etc. It is not McDonald's, and it is not what mom used to make. It's edible, warm, and not expensive. Our servers worked very hard, even though our group was scattered. One... More

We eat at Marshalltown Applebee's quite regularly. Whether it's dine-in or take-out; we have never had a bad meal yet. The food always arrives hot, staff is friendly and the restaurant and bathrooms are always clean.

Dined on a cold and snowy Sunday. Were seated promptly, but would've been glad to wait for a warmer table. My feet were freezing the entire meal! Others in our group were cold, too. Food was tasty and a good value. Server was efficient and friendly. If you stop here on a winter day, unless you're cold-blooded, ask for a... More
