You can't go wrong stopping into this restaurant. We live close by and we generally go here because it's clean, very good service and I've never had a bad meal yet.

Went there on Veterans Day and my meal and my wife's meal were spot on. The menu for the Vets was quite large and the Fiesta Lime Chicken I had was really good. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. They even had several different craft beers on tap which we both enjoyed. The place was clean and cheery. This is... More

First visit great service. Food just standard Applebee fare. We were starved and food came quickly. Offered drink refills promptly. Second visit service was not very good. No third visit

My son and I were in the area for a triathlon and decided to stop here for dinner. Better to eat safe with something you know before a competition than try a local restaurant. Well, we both ordered the bourbon chicken and shrimp as that is our standby back home. When it arrived, the shrimp were still raw, the butter... More

Applebee's is just average. It's nothing to get excited about. I would much rather frequent other establishments. Applebee's is a last resort for me.

While I prefer to eat at local, non-chain restaurants, I definitely make an exception for Applebees. Their menu offers great prices on excellent food. If only they could figure out a way to remove some of the calories from the Oriental Chicken Salad....they'd be near perfect!

I've ate here quite a few times and I will never get the steak again every time it was well done and tough when I ordered med. rare. The last time I went the ribs were burnt. But I've always had good chicken, pasta sandwiches and appetizers. The service has always been good the manager even offered to make me... More

I really do like this chain restaurant. However, it seems to always end up being quite expensive, especially for a family. Each time we go, I figure $80 for a family of four. If I had more disposable income we'd eat here a lot. While the food is good and consistent, the portion sizes always seem on the small side.... More

My expectations are high when I visit places to eat because I am usually tired and hungry. When I walked into this place it seemed smaller than most and was packed. That didn't stop staff from making me feel comfortable and welcome. Specifically my server Olivia, hard working, on the ball, and a great mindset for customer service. She not... More

First ever stop at an Applebees, and seriously, I would never go back. Beer selection, terrible. Menu says ask our server about local beers, I ask and she says "why are you asking me that?" Unreal, and guess what, they have no local craft or seasonal beers...in Michigan, just a few miles from Holland Michigan, the craft beer meca!! 3... More
