We usually have a decent time there but the last time was pretty bad. We waited over 30 min for someone to ask what drinks and apps we wanted. The drinks took forever and they sent our app to another table so we had to wait even longer for that. It wasn't even that busy. Maybe half the tables had... More

Stopped here for lunch with 3 generations of family. Everyone found something they liked. Portions were good size at reasonable prices. Server kept apologizing for any wait we had. She was stretched thin, serving both sides of the restaurant. So not her problem, but management's for not staffing enough.

"Late night keeps getting better" was on the sign. I beg to differ. As with a recent review the after 9PM appy specials is some what of a moving and shrinking offering - and NOT for the better. My last visit to Great Falls 6 weeks ago I had the Chicken Won Ton Tacos after 9PM @ 50% off per... More

Ate here on our trip cross country in route to Glacier. After waiting for a server to show up for at least fifteen minutes, I finally walked back to the hostess and asked her to get someone. No tables had silverware and every table was asking for it after their food was brought out. When my water was brought out... More

Applebee's has some great menu choices and excellent specials...two can dine for..... Another place that seems to always be busy - go earlier, if possible to avoid the wait.

Have gone here several times over the past several years and looked forward to this year's return. Unfortunately they have changed their menu and in our opinion, not for the better. A fair number of items are no longer offered and it seems like the new menu is more for appetiziers. The food we ordered was good, but choice was... More
