As someone who has been recently diagnosed with a litany of food allergies, I was scared to go out to eat anywhere. I've always loved Applebees, but now I have to lead a much different life and avoid gluten, dairy, and soy products along with most grains. I did a check on line to look at whether they had a...

Applebee's is one of those chain restaurants that seems to get it right most of the time. There is one near us where we often meet friends and really enjoy the time together as well as the food. This Applebee's in Danbury was across the street from a hotel we were staying in and after a long day visiting family... More

Our Appetizer was Breaded Onion Rings which were very good. The 2 entrees were the Cedar Grilled Lemon Chicken and the All American Hamburger with Fries. The Lemon Chicken... More

Went for dinner as it was across the street from my hotel. Couldn't be happier. Had the Butcher's meat and potatoes. It was excellent. Would definitely order it again. Todd my server was polite and professional. Would definitely go back.

Suggested by hotel staff and with discount from hotel stay. Have dined at Applebee's in Destin, Fl, so would be a good choice. Was seated fine and they were very busy (Mothers Day). Server came and took drink order, passed us several times, no drinks. Another server was asked if we were forgotten and took our order and sometime after... More

For starters we had Avocado dip which was good too! Last time on a Saturday evening the place was packed and I complained about service. But this time... More
