My husband and I had Lunch here today. He had the chicken tenders and fries basket, very good. I had the shrimp stir fry very good but the spices where to spicy for me, next time will order without the spices. AppleBees is a great resturant.

I stayed at the hotel close by and had a dinner before my meeting. Good Burger. Polite staff at the bar. I ended up coming back two nights later with my wife and ate lunch before traveling home.

We went here after a long full day at Cedar Point. We arrived at 10:45pm and were seated by 11:15pm. When the waitess brought our drinks she spilled part of one on the table. She took our orders and asked if there was anything else so I asked for napkins for the spill. She came back with plates for the... More

We had never been to an Applebee's before, but my stepdaughter had and she really wanted to go so we went for dinner. Food was amazingly good! We got our food pretty quickly, even though it was pretty busy for it being like 8:30pm at night on a Sunday. Our server was fantastic and had a great accent! Flavoured lemonades... More

I had the crunchy battered shrimp and it was super delicious! Half off appetizers are hard to resist- so getting through dinner proved difficult. We were bigger fools to get dessert but I ❤️❤️❤️ the maple butter blondie! We had excellent service at 3:30 pm-not too busy yet.

South West steak salad.....looked great in the picture on the menu but turned out to be four slivers of steak on top of a ball of over dressed goo. Spoke to the server who brought the manager to speak to us and offer 'some extra steak' but by that point I was too tired to bother. The waiter was slightly... More

It was late and our sever had too many tables! Our kids didn't get their food till after we were done eating. I don't like Applebee's I feel their portions are small for the money! This was the only place open!
