A standard applebees imho would be a solid 4... maybe just bad luck, but my steak was cold, broccoli soggy as could be, and my brownie for dessert was stale... a solid miss by franchise standards..

My husband and I had Lunch here today. He had the chicken tenders and fries basket, very good. I had the shrimp stir fry very good but the spices where to spicy for me, next time will order without the spices. AppleBees is a great resturant.

I stayed at the hotel close by and had a dinner before my meeting. Good Burger. Polite staff at the bar. I ended up coming back two nights later with my wife and ate lunch before traveling home.

We had never been to an Applebee's before, but my stepdaughter had and she really wanted to go so we went for dinner. Food was amazingly good! We got our food pretty quickly, even though it was pretty busy for it being like 8:30pm at night on a Sunday. Our server was fantastic and had a great accent! Flavoured lemonades... More

I had the crunchy battered shrimp and it was super delicious! Half off appetizers are hard to resist- so getting through dinner proved difficult. We were bigger fools to get dessert but I ❤️❤️❤️ the maple butter blondie! We had excellent service at 3:30 pm-not too busy yet.
