We choose Applebee's because it was across the street from our hotel (Red Lion). And it provided exactly what we expected.... decent food, at a reasonable price. Nothing more, nor less.

In short, if you like Applebee's, then go. Yet, having said that.... Redding offers far better choices. I would personally recommend sticking with one of the home town favorites, such as Lumberjack's.

Yet, Applebee's awaits, if you can't go another day without the Two for $20 offer. :)

Took elderly parents to mid week dinner. We were seated quickly and received our beverages promptly. Ordered a Riblet plate, Cheeseburger plate, and two Top sirloin dinners medium and medium rare. STEAK dinners came with appetizer of spinach dip with chips and was very good. Father's steak was tough so asked the waiter for another steak. This one also was tough so was also sent back. Manager apologized and we ordered a Riblet dinner instead. He comped the price of the dinner. My steak was also tough but as we had already sent two back didn't want to make more fuss. Hubby and father are former meat cutters so know good meat and this wasn't quality. I think they should choose a new supplier. Rest of meal was ok. Mother loved the riblets. Wait staff bent over backwards to try and remedy the problem. Can't blame them for tough meat.

Labor Day Weekend! Something besides a burger and fries. Let's try Applebee's! Was noon when we arrived, a little busy but not packed yet. Within the next half hour it got really busy. We were waited on in a very professional manner and seated right away. I thought it took a little longer than normal to get water, but that can be over looked. Noticed that all the employees were hard at work even the manager: Team Work: To me it shows so much about the business. Exceptional Service! No problem with the order, got just what we ordered in a timely manner.
We have been to the Red Bluff Applebee's. Unfortunately not the same experience

This was a popular place! We did take out and brought it back to our hotel, the Hampton Inn and Suites. We tried a grilled cheese sandwich and a couple pastas. For the price, they were great!

Ordered a Philly sandwich. The menu said it had smothered cheese and lots of sauce. The sandwich had a little cheese and no sauce. The stupit manager came to the table after telling the waitress. He said they do not have any of the sauce anymore.Then told us of a resturant that had good philly sandwiches. He did nothing to accomidate us for their misstake . They should of had the waitress come back to our table and tell us the sandwich is not like the menu and give us a choice.
