We went to Applebee's for lunch, and enjoyed it. We both chose from the lunch pairings menu. The choices are smaller portioned, and the server was very accommodating.

You are not going to expect a fine dining experience in Applebees. It is a standard product delivered in quickly and efficiently.

There are a lot of Applebees locations, so when we travel, we tend to look for them on the road because we know it's going to fill our needs. No guesswork. There are usually some kind of specials for two to dine, which works out for my wife and I, since we usually travel together. Nice dessert choices.

My husband and I eat here VERY often. AppleBees has some great items and some not so great food items. The price is right for the type of food. We like the variety of choices and they make frequent menu changes. My husband enjoys there beer selection and we leave satisfied.

We have gone to Applebee for the last ten years. The servers are always polite and prompt. The food is good old comfort food and alcoholic drinks are fun. I especially like the oriental grilled chicken salad. Whether with small children or just adults we enjoy old reliable Applebee.

My partner and I go here fairly frequently. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the manager is very responsive to any issue. The food is as it is advertised--consistently meeting the description, a wide variety of dishes are available, and the prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and accommodating to families with children. Often the twenties crowd... More
