My family of 4 stopped to eat dinner here. Our waitress looked a bit ill or perhaps as though she had been crying. She took our drink order and never returned. Eventually, another server came along and said the first had left. With all of this, our visit took an insanely long time. The second server had another section and... More

We stopped at Applebee's just between lunch and dinner, service was great, meal was even better. Was quiet due to time and no crowd. We would definitely go again.

Service was excellent. Food was great. Restaurant was clean and quiet. We were traveling and found this establishment to be a lot nicer than the one back home. Prices were reasonable and we would definitely recommend this place to friends and family

It is really unusual to find a restaurant that does not have some saving grace but Applebee's manages to do just that. Four of us ate there Sunday afternoon. It took 20 minutes for the server to recognize us and an hour plus to get our food. Better if it had never come. The black bean steak soup came up... More

Had lunch at Applebee's after hiking through the forest and was more hungry than usual. When ordering at the other restaurants I have not been aware of "American" portions. The waitress had offered some good advice as to what and how much to order. Food was good, fresh salad, tasty, more or less the amount I could eat. Great eating... More

Went for lunch with son when visiting him at college. Not crowded at all when we were there, but waitress was much more interested in hanging out with a fellow colleague who was off and at the bar. Rattled cup for a few minute trying to get her attention, to no avail. Finally after 20 minutes she popped up her... More

While staying at the nearby Fairfield, we walked to Applebee's for dinner. We took advantage of the 2 for 20 (or 25) special and had a great meal.

The waitress was friendly, timely and attentive, but the food - well...The alleged steak (which looked more like a poor cut of beef) in my quesadilla was so tough that it was impossible to chew it, and the French fries were mediocre at best. My mom found the mashed sweet potato, and the grilled chicken breast to be odd tasting.... More

Stopped in during a recent hiking trip. The service was fast and accurate. I had the classic appetizer sampler and the clubhouse grill sandwich. The food was fresh and really good. A friend had a chicken wrap that he said was good. This is my go to place in Boone for a good variety for different taste.
