Four of us adults went here for dinner. Server was very nice but way to talkie talkie. He kept coming back to the table to talk to us. Food was terrible. Burbon Steaks were tough and you chewed forever on them. The Honey BBQ ribs were hard also. The salad was good and the maple mashed sweet potato's were good.... More

Having just arrived in Valparaiso we decided to lunch at Applebee's on Highway 30. Big mistake. It would seem these chain restaurants are going out of their way to serve less food at higher prices with unexceptional taste. Never again.

The staff is awful every time I go to this place. Has been that way for the 8 years I've been living in the area. But it's the only quick option on this end of town around 2-230pm. If it's after 3 we will go to sementos instead. If it's before 2 then we will go to Suzies. So basically... More

We were looking forward to our bowls of soup. We did not order 'hot mexican' but just regular chicken soup, and boy did the kitchen of this Applebee's go mad with their hot pepper. We couldn't finish it. Burning lips and mouth. Why oh why? To overpower every other real food taste or to disguise the lack thereof? Would not... More

Stopped in today for lunch, was not to impressed. Why is it you go into a restaurant to eat and they have to stack everyone on top of each other. 3/4 of the restaurant is empty, but they put couples next to large loud parties. The food was average for Applebee's. The waitress was good, very attentive to her clients... More

This restaurant was just right for us! We spent a long day at a train show in Crown Point and were tired and hungry. We decided on Applebee's and were not disappointed. We were given a quiet table in the corner and were served by a very attentive but not obtrusive waitress. Our food was delicious and service was excellent.... More

Service was dismal. Although one point saved for recgognising my daughter wouldnt eat her dinner. She hated it. Had to ask repeatadly for knifes and forks. Cocktails were as good as I remember. Steaks were awful but we had eaten at Kelsys 2 days prior but still, no excuses. Certainly didnt look like the picture. I gave it 3 stars... More

It was your typical Applebee's. We arrived one evening at abt 8 pm - we did wait for our food a bit and were starving.

Was here with a party of three and we all had separate items as our entree. When two of us were ill within the span of a couple of hours, I called the third person and she was not feeling well either. What was most interesting is that we did not have any food in common except for the glasses... More
