“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is not a gourmet experience but we always get quality food and good service. Nice variety - low cal, low fat if you want it. Love the $1 brownie bites! We go several times a month.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Love the happy hour. The food is consistently good here. Have had a few things I hated but they are already off the menu. $5 Burger Monday is a deal.

“A chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Like most chain restaurants, almost every franchise looks the same. I've always liked Applebee's for their menu offerings--something new and different for just about everyone.

It has a bar--a good selection of beers--and the ability to make most drinks. Applebees are generally very clean--and they seem to work on their waitstaff to produce consistent results.

“Can never go wrong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This place is almost always packed. The staff is almost too attentive. Food is consistently good. I've never been disappointed in the years they have been in Owatonna.
