Stopped in for a late dinner after checking into the hotel near the restaurant. Needed an IPA on tap but the soup and apps were great. Good service and clean restaurant.

I recently had dinner at this Applebee's with colleagues. We were seated immediately but it took several minutes for a server to acknowledge us. The menu is standard for Applebee's. My dinner was good and priced reasonably. I'd go back.

A very good Applebee's close to hotels for DIA.. Our server did an excellent job. It is a very busy restaurant.

Great meal, the server/waitress was fantastic, took very good care of us. The food was fantastic unlike any Applebee's I've experienced before. Pricing was comparable to most also. Highly recommend.

Stopped for supper while traveling to Denver from airport, and enjoyed good food and good service. The fish and chips were excellent. Good area near lots of shopping.

Visit here quite often. Always greeted at door and usually do not have to wait to be seated unless with a large group. I've enjoyed sitting at the bar enjoying a drink & appetizer. Good mix of people, with lots of children's voices to be...More

This Applebees is the same as an Applebees anywhere else save the for the local flavor of the decor. That's good and (you know wht you are getting) and bad (some regional menu variety please!).

I had a steak and roasted red potatoes. The steak was tender and it was cooked to perfection. Great flavor!!! Service was awesome. Short wait. Priced right.
