We were driving up to Lake Tahoe from the San Francisco Bay Area and we wanted to stretch our legs and grab a bite to eat. We found an Applebee's restaurant in Davis, right off the freeway, and decided to eat dinner there. When we arrived, a friendly host immediately sat us. Soon, a waiter came and took our order:...

A family and friends celebration after First Communion was no challenge for Applebee's. They greeted us and ushered us to a quiet, away from the bar area. We have many selections and lots of appetizers, they took special care of our young members. Everyone enjoyed the entres and drinks.

I recently met a friend here for lunch. We chose items off the lunch menu which included combinations of a half sandwich and a small salad. The meal was average. What I especially liked was the ability to sit in a comfy booth and converse for a long time with my friend. The waitress was very courteous and attentive in... More

While in Davis, having our car serviced on Chiles Road auto-row, we decided it was lunch time which meant munch time while we waited. A member of our party suggested going to Applebee's on Research Park where she used to walk to for lunch when working for UC Davis I.T. Let me tell you, Davis is NOTHING like it used... More

Ordered some appetizers since they were half off. They were okay. Nothing special. If you want mediocre food then this is the place for you.

I guess I hadn't been to an Applebees in some time. I'm not a fan of how impersonal it has become with ordering and paying from a kiosk. The staff was perfectly fine but it was so strange to just use a kiosk.

For some reason, we hadn't been to Applebee's for awhile but was enticed today for a free meal for Veteran's Day. The Green Goddess salad was terrific with an excellent tangy dressing accented with bacon and pecans. I had the 7 oz steak which was great. While the steamed vegetables were not unique, it was prepared well with still a... More

Applebee's, as always, never ceases to be a great place to eat. The service was quick and efficient, the food was great!

Ate there once and wouldn't go rushing back... Staff very friendly but the food was below par. Staff have obviously been told to push and push products (i.e. giftcards). Applebbe's need to realize when people enter their restaurant they're interested in good food. They need to get this right first.
