We ll my wife and I ordered the 2 for $20 which was actually an awesome deal, the meal was wonderful, we had riblets and the chicken and shrimp dinners and they were excellent, the cheese sticks were also good, but the atmosphere was funky and the table they sat us at was very sticky and dirty, had them wash...

Always a safe bet. You get what you have to expect. Very friendly staff. There's always a smile and a warm welcome. So it's a nice place to be.

The food was good we had the 2 for 25 and everything was good but the steak was a bit salty.... I would definitely come back again service was great and the atmosphere was really nice lots of TVs if you're looking for sports in the bar and bigger tables outside if you have more than 4 or 5 in...

I typically don't like to write a review on a chain restaurant, but Applebee's seems to be the choice among many, even when there are many other local options. This was a business meal with a large group, and their seating was not designed for large group interaction. I did enjoy the shrimp salad, even though it was a rather... More

Expensively priced for what you are getting. Even for a beer and appetizers, it like $20. Atmosphere ok, nothing special. They make you wait unnecessarily when you can see tables are available.

I used to go to Applebee's all the time but I guess I got burned out because everything tasted the same to me. After a long break, I have started going to Applebee's in Salem, OR. There are many new items on the menu that taste yummy. I don't care for the new machines on the table. You can place... More

Food was good, service was great, not enough selection of Dark Ale beer. Did not have to wait and plenty of parking.

My boyfriend was working for this Applebee's and they only clean once a week also they fired him. When he went to file unemployment they said he quit. I have been with him through this whole thing and I know he was fired. This applebee's is rude and try to ruin people's lives. Don't give them anymore business.

This restaurant works well with people with dietary restrictions. I usually have the Oriental Chicken Salad ... with no nuts, grilled meat, no cooking sauce; dressing to the side. They don't even flinch! They have good mixed drinks and carry beer or wine to suit your mood.

The service here was slow and inattentive as the girls seemed more interested in talking to each other than helping the customers.As well the food took FOREVER to come to the table. There used to be more non meat choices at Applebees now everything seems to have bacon in it and the prices are high for what you get.Probably would... More
