Have stayed away from Applebee's for some time now because of a previous dining experience but decided to give it another chance. Still disappointing :-( We ate at the bar and decided to have the 2 for $20 special that they advertised. The food was mediocre and the service was horrible. We sat down and asked for a drink of which one was a coke with a lime in it and a draft beer. They brought my wife a glass of water with a lime. Bartender said they were pretty busy and that's why they made a mistake. I guess 8 people at the bar is busy ??? Had to ask for the "free" chips and salsa 3 times before they actually brought any. The salsa comes in a container about the size of a thimble. You have break a chip 3 or 4 ways to get any salsa for the say 10 or 12 chips. Then there was dinner...nothing to brag about. Our dirty plates sat in front of us for near 15 minutes even though they would come up and look you in the eye and walk away. They spent more time talking with each other than servicing their customers. Food: OK Service: Extremely lacking.Won't be going back again anytime soon!

For some g ood eats at a reasonable price. I enjoy their specials and happy hour especially when you have 6 people to feed. I use totake my kids there every Wednesday night for their .99 kid dinners. It saved me a lot of money over they ears but I remembered to tip on the original price of course. If you are looking for a cozy, clean, friendly family restuarant in Castle Rock, go to Applebees because you will not be disappointed. There is something for everyone on their menu.

Well, we tried to be open to the experience but after two attempts my best advise is to try something else as there are so many other (better) choices in the area. Applebees serves its "standard" menu which at this location consists of overcooked greasy fare at a relatively high price point for what it is. If you have your heart set on a chain do yourself a favor and drive one more block east and eat at Red Robin. IMHO Red Robin serves its typical chain fare with attentive servers, caring management in a festive environment. Sorry Applebees, but I can't recommend this eatery in good conscious.
