these dining places at mcarthy ranch in milpitas gets really crowded during lunch time... so i recommend this applebees place as your alternative. most of the restos in this area have theme meals, from a pasta house, to asian spices to mexican foods and meditterenian, but as I said, those places gets crowded especially during lunch and dinner time. though,...

This was near the area where we were today, so it made a good destination for light lunch, as we knew the menu and it would be reasonably quick. It’s a national chain, so one location looks like another, and the food quality is consistent. My fiancée had a chicken wrap with fries, and I had the BBQ chicken bites.... More

I like to go here whenever I'm in milpitas, because I know the menu and what to expect and the staff is always great to deal with.

Pretty decent. It was close to our hotel and stayed open late. Great options on a large menu and service was good. Will visit again.

This place is what one can expect from an applebees.It has food at the cheaper side of the spectrum, of reasonable quality. Unfortunatly my medium Rare steak was well done, and the flavour was as result not to my expectations. Nevertheless it is one of the better applebees, and previous visits were better.

This is a chain restaurant doing nothing to distinguish itself. And, as another reviewer said the food is "high calorie", everything seems to be soaked in butter or fat.

Drinks are expensive if you go off the menu ($7 for a shot of vodka), food is average and don't recommend ordering wine as they'll just bring you any hoping that you won't notice. My friend got white instead of read which was pretty obvious...

Had a dinner there, felt like a couple of levels above fast food. Good if you are looking for a quick , near the hotel, high calories meal.
