Applebee's is a good place to have a good meal. They have a varied menu and the food is consistently good. We find their prices are very reasonable and the service is always excellent.

The menu is extensive but the food is nothing out of the ordinary. Sometimes offering too many choices makes all of them just OK. Service was good. Didn't like the table top computer. Charges $1.50 to play any of the games. This charge caused me to under select items on my billing and had to go manual after all. Parking... More

We visited Applebee's in Surprise for dinner. My husband ordered a regular hamburger. When the food arrived, he requested ketchup to put on his bun (as the bun was dry). We waited and waited as the Waitress chatted with another table. Meanwhile, his hamburger and fries were getting cold. When we stopped the Waitress to ask about the ketchup, she... More

I have been to a lot of Applebee's in the past but this location was a refreshing experience of great customer service, great food. My server was OUTSTANDING. I needed a good light recommendation and without hesitation she knew exactly where to point me to looking for what I wanted. Excellent attention without being over baring. Smiled and made me...

Friends and Wife and I went to this Applebee's for dinner. The food was excellent. The onion rings were outstanding, the French Onion Soup was fantastic and the remainder of all the meals were extremely good. My problem is since our last visit their service stinks. They are slow to welcome you to the table, slow to take drink orders,... More

This is a good restaurant to get a good value for your whole family. The menu seems to change fairly often and the quantity is always large. So you will see some really large people filling up here.

This is the best Applebee's i've visited! I'm not big on chain restaurants, but in my opinion this one in Surprise AZ is wonderful. The food has been excellent every time, the service has been good too and the prices are reasonable for what you receive. I generally sit at the bar, the service is awesome and the food seems...

Applebee's seasonally updates their menu's. This location gets very busy at the normal times to eat. It is well kept and the staff is very nice. Food is always good and the new menu items are a great change from the regular items. The only thing to look out for is if you like your steak well done (no pink)... More

If I were a betting man, I would bet on this Applebee's as having the best French Onion Soup in Arizona. We have eaten here several times and I always have room for the Onion Soup. There appears to be a small disconnect between placing your order and then receiving your meal. Can't blame the waitress as she doesn't work... More
