Waiters are friendly and place is clean. If it is your birthday they will gather all the waiters and clap to the table and sing a song, and you get a free desert. They use to give the kids balloons, Im not sure if they do that anymore. Recently it was renovated, I passed the trucks in the parking lot and had to wait for them to carry things across the front of my vehicle and into the place.

You can order ahead of time and pick it up at the door, for takeout.

The menu is mostly everything fried. Yes, they have a couple of WW choices, but if you dont like shrimp your out of luck.

If you enjoy fried everything and some noise you will love it!

Service was prompt. Food was mediocre. We both had choices off the special "Sizzling Entrees" menu and perhaps that was the mistake. Both arrived at the table lukewarm. The Sizzling N'Awlins was so so. The Double Barrel Whiskey Sirloins were not even so-so. Overcooked - asked for medium rare but they were beyond well-done, dry, and unseasoned. Missing the onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. that are described and in pictures (although in fairness there were a few onions under the steak and they did bring a little cup of more onions when the problem was pointed out). Paid extra for the 'cheese and bacon' on the potatoes. Some cheese, couldn't find the bacon, but a very generous bit of sour cream on top. You never really expect the food to look or taste as good as the menu pictures but this was truly not even close. The manager did come round to ask if things were ok, but we did not want to wait so we did not send it back - I am sure they would have given us replacements if we had wanted to wait. We were there about 4 in the afternoon and they were not really crowded so expected hot, fresh entrees but that is not what we had. Perhaps if we ordered from the main menu and not the special features it would have been better.

Applebee's is always pretty consistant where ever you go. This location had a friendly staff, that even though I was there eating close to closing time, they didn't rush me off and the food was hot and delicious!

This location, in Keene, has not changed in a dozen years. Maybe the menu a tad, but for a decent meal at a decent price and an ambience that makes you feel welcome, Applebee's is a must do!!

Why would you eat here when you can go downtown and have great food at Luca's, Nicola's, Thai Garden, The Stage, anywhere else.
