Excellent service. Great food. Comfortable. Only one issue is we had an 11 year old with us. The JukeBox was blaring very loudly. And we watched a guy go up and select a song. It was all about sex. The 11 year old told me the name of the song. But I cannot remember. Although the vocal was definitely talking... More

Prices went up with the launch of the new menu. Nothing around $10 anymore, except appetizers. Not much for kids or any "neighborhood appetites". Brownie bites went up from $1 to $2.49. Waitress was sitting with boyfriend and neglectful of customers. Peru does not have much to chose from as far as restaurants are concerned.

I just had the new Pork steak(?) off the new menu. It was fabulous. I normally get steak but wanted something different. The mashed sweet potatoes were great too. It is a lot more calories than I thought but it was worth it. These are not low calorie potatoes.

This was our first visit to an Applebee's in several years. We arrived shortly after 4pm on a Thursday, so at this time they had 1/2 priced appetizers and $.50 cent boneless wings. My husband and I ordered our food and ate, and the wings we ordered to go to take home for our boys. The service was good and... More

We had a new waiter and TIM was very good and attentive to our needs. Had the all-you-can-eat fish n chips. Coleslaw was fantastic. Hubbys burger was delish.

I make several trips to and from Chicago all year long and I must tell you this place is a great stop. The same manager has been here both times and just watching the coordination of the staff and how they work together to help each other along with their friendliness totally makes this place a spot to visit. Great... More
