Visited this restaurant twice and both dishes were fantastic. Service is great, friendly, and accommodating. Will go again when in town.

Applebee's in Freeport is like any Applebee's throughout the country. This restaurant gets very crowded and often times have long waiting times exceeding 45 minutes. The food is good and the service is much better than the food. The crowds increase on the weekends and it's not so bad during the weekdays. They have a bar which seems to get... More

I love Applebee's, and used to love the Freeport location. However, when I took the whole family last week, it was a disappointment across the board. The waitress was inattentive and left us waiting forever to order, in spite of the fact they weren't very busy. Our drinks sat empty and weren't refilled until the meal was over. The kids... More

Friendly service, good food. A little on the noisy side, but were still able to visit. Loved the "perfect" marguirita.

I struggled to give this place a 2 rating. We've been there, reluctantly on my part, several times only because the dining options in Freeport are limited. I've been disappointed pretty much every time with the food. It's an ok place to go and sit at the bar and have an appetizer but that's it. The meals and food are... More

Applebee's was very gracious and appreciative of those who served in the military. A free meal was given to the veterans of all branches of service.A good portion was served with a nice selection. The waitress (Stephany ? ) was extremely polite and attentive given the special day.Veterans are thankful for their recognition.

My wife and I always enjoy dining at this restaurant. The food and service are great, and we particularly like their steaks, ribs, chicken. and sandwiches. Last week my wife enjoyed tomato basil soup and chicken penne, while I had sirloin steak with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed onions. The coffee is great also. We look forward to returning again... More
