We stopped here for dinner on a return trip home and we left full and happy. Our server was Emily and I asked about the Brewery Chicken and said OMG good. She nailed it as the meal was great and we tipped her very well. She was so good that my ice tea never went empty. I would eat here... More

I ordered takeout from Applebee’s for dinner on a road trip. I placed the order on-line and was able to customize it (Fiesta Lime Chicken, without pepper jack cheese). It was ready when promised. The wedge of fresh lime enhanced the flavor, the pico de gallo had a nice kick, and the taco strips added texture. My husband just wanted... More

Was near my hotel. Hostess had an attitude, as if it was a big concession to sit me. Wait person was nice and attentive. Place was about half full and my food took way too long to arrive. Their new app, cheeseburger egg rolls, was excellent. Rest was just so so, wings were way over breaded. Multiple tvs and when... More

Waitress was horrible. The resturant was miserably cold. Food was average. Was not worth $40.00. This was our first and last visit to this Applebee's.

I've visited Applebees twice in August. Food was mediocre. Furnishings look and feel rundown - booth seat had large hole in cover with foam pad showing. Needs cleaned up!

With chain restaurants some can be good and some can be not so... This one is good. Service was friendly and reasonably fast and the food was well prepared. Plus they gave 10% because we were staying at a nearby hotel.

I almost forgot Applebee's on our first night stop at Mt.Vernon,IL. I know there is Jet Lag,and after 12 days on the road I must have Car Lag. The one thing I won't forget is Fish & Chips at Applebee's is always delicious. Throw a large draft beer in there with it and you go back to your Motel very... More
