The food is as expected for any Applebee's. The service, however, is consistently poor. Long waits for average food...

Love their two for $20.00 choices and the appetizer with it. The managers often make the rounds and made sure everyone is satisfied too.

I have been to this location plenty of times. I love the food. The syrachi shrimp appetizer is always awesome. Service is either great, and bad. Lately it's been better, Mabel it's new management? One evening I was out with a group, and we came for the appetizers. It was very busy, so we were okay with the delays. At... More

This is your standard Applebee's restaurant. Compared to Oshkosh the servers are more friendly and the food is better.

We stopped in later in the evening with the intention of a cup of coffee and tea. The menu looked so good, we added a bowl of soup and a salad. Both were great. The waitress was excellent and the atmosphere was very relaxing.

As fairly frequent eaters at the Applebee's restaurants over the years, we believe the quality of food and service for all their franchises have slowly descended into the mediocre levels of eating out-and this franchise is no different. To keep it simple: on the positive side, you can expect a clean restaurant and a good selection of food choices that... More

We stopped in a Applebee's for a quick meal. The food was ok, and the portions were smaller than I remember.

Travelling through Fond du Lac late we found Applebee's open until midnight. It was busy even at 10:00 p.m. but our server Zachery S. was right on top of things. We enjoyed the 2 for $20 dinner deal and of course were able to watch the Packer's game on the many tv's. in the bar and restaurant.

We just ordered sandwiches with three quarters of the restaurant empty and it took over 45 minutes to get them. Our waitress expresses how busy she was so they must have been short staffed. Food was good but we never got our drinks refilled. Disappointed this visit.

The food was good-but the service was mediocre-for an Applebee's I would have expected better. This is the fault of the current management. they are supposed to be walking the floor-checking if food and service was OK and that never happened! I had to ask to speak to a manager to complain about the lack of attention and the long... More
