I have officially scratched Applebees off my list. There were 4 of us for dinner. When I asked if they had a gluten free menu , they looked at me like I was from Mars. The receptionist said that Applebees had just changed the way they handle food allergies and with that, dropped a binder on our table and left.... More

Applebees provides a good meal that caters to almost anyone's tastes. The service is good and they aim to please. Their specials change on occasion, so it's good to check them out often!

We had to ask for silverware 4 times finally got some by then the food wasn't warm. Took forever to get our drinks. Were told the bartender was behind but... More

On Monday to Thursday from 4 - 6pm, we had half price appetizers and a $6.99 pitcher of beer. I love their chicken wonton tacos and spinach artichoke dip. Sadly they removed fajitas from their menu a couple of years ago and they haven't returned. Service was great.

Applebee's is a good place to have a good meal. They have a varied menu and the food is consistently good. We find their prices are very reasonable and the service is always excellent.

The menu is extensive but the food is nothing out of the ordinary. Sometimes offering too many choices makes all of them just OK. Service was good. Didn't like the table top computer. Charges $1.50 to play any of the games. This charge caused me to under select items on my billing and had to go manual after all. Parking... More

We visited Applebee's in Surprise for dinner. My husband ordered a regular hamburger. When the food arrived, he requested ketchup to put on his bun (as the bun was dry). We waited and waited as the Waitress chatted with another table. Meanwhile, his hamburger and fries were getting cold. When we stopped the Waitress to ask about the ketchup, she... More

I have been to a lot of Applebee's in the past but this location was a refreshing experience of great customer service, great food. My server was OUTSTANDING. I needed a good light recommendation and without hesitation she knew exactly where to point me to looking for what I wanted. Excellent attention without being over baring. Smiled and made me...

Friends and Wife and I went to this Applebee's for dinner. The food was excellent. The onion rings were outstanding, the French Onion Soup was fantastic and the remainder of all the meals were extremely good. My problem is since our last visit their service stinks. They are slow to welcome you to the table, slow to take drink orders,... More
