We recently had a very disappointing experience at Applebee’s. I had been to a different Applebee’s a while ago and had a really good salad so I was looking forward to repeating that dining experience. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Things started off poorly for us when we had to wait almost 5 minutes just to be greeted/seated. We... More

I went recently because we didn't want to wait long to eat because we were very hungry. So we decided to go here. The food presentation was bad and it was tasteless. I've visited several locations in years past and they just continue to go downhill. I will never go back.

Applebee's is usually consistent but tonight they ran out of dressings, certain wines and the service was cranky. The new pay at table app misses the point. You now have taken away the person-person interaction that makes the customer want to tip well..

My wife and I visited the Applebee's in Saugus, Mass, twice earlier this month for dinner. I had a steak twice: once the 9 oz sirloin ($15) and another time the 9 oz sirloin with shrimp and an Italian cheese sauce ($18). Both steaks were cooked medium rare perfectly and well-seasoned. I preferred the plain 9 oz steak; I didn't... More

Our burgers were really good. The service was good, as well. The walls were covered with collectibles and photos of Saugus,MA. There was a lot to look at and it gave you a "homey" feeling. The bill was a bit more than we thought it would be, but this resaurant has come a long way.

after an afternoon of shopping myself and 2 friends stopped for dinner. The server was pleasant and attentive. The food was served hot and in a timely manner. The prices were very affordable.

My husband & I stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We sat at the bar & waited & waited & waited for the bartender to finally come over to say "I'll be right with you" We ordered chicken wings, all we tasted was the cooking grease they were fried in. My husband ordered a burger. Very plain, basic... More
