So the hubby and I went for lunch today it was ok. We had a gift card from Christmas so we didn't have to pay so much but I will say while the waitress was nice the food was just ok only gave 3 due to nice staff

Applebee's is a casual dinning chain restaurant. I've eaten at the Bowling Green location several times over the past 10 years. This is a good place to have a beer or a cocktail. On my last visit I had the classic American Burger and fries. I started with their version of a cosmopolitan coctkail which was very good. The burger... More

Bowling Green, KY, is our favorite place to spend the night and eat on our way up to Illinois or on our way down to Florida, since is the half way point. Our favorite restaurant is Applebee's, near I-65 and outside a nice shopping center. It's a casual restaurant, that's good for groups, couples or family with children. The food... More

The service wasn't that great. We walked in and the hostess wouldn't even look up from cleaning the menus while she was speaking with us. Acted as though we were bothering her when all we did was enter the restaurant. However, our waitress was wonderful! Food was good, what you would expect. Great dessert! Came out in a timely manner,... More

We were concerned about the appearance from the outside, and once we went in, we were still concerned. This is not the best appearing Applebee's that we have been to. The service was okay, but sure nothing to brag about. The food was good and we didn't die. We probably won't go to this Applebee's again.

I ordered the sampler with 3 items for $12, including the boneless chicken wings, steak fajitas, and cheeseburger egg rolls. The boneless chicken wings and steak fajitas were fine. But the cheeseburger egg rolls had an overwhelming taste of pickles, even though the menu didn't say that they had pickles in them. I hate pickles, and the pickle taste was... More

I enjoy eating here. The food is good and the service is usually great! The 2 for $20 meals which includes an appetizer or salad, meal, and dessert, is a great deal!

To get to the point quickly: don't ever go here. First, it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our food. It was cold and a very small portion size. We actually ended up going somewhere afterwards to get a snack. Our waitress was a bit crazy. She was a control freak to put it nicely. She wouldn't allow... More

Wow, waited forever for drinks, then one was wrong. Sat in the bar area watching the bartenders and was given a line about looking for ingredients, then its a new bartender... No one was helping him and he never left to look for anything. The food was not cooked to the requested level. Four different people were working our table.... More

This Applebee's is located in front of the Mall and two of the busiest Restaurants in town are in the same area. As we had visited the other area restaurants we always saw the Applebee's, but the parking lot was about half full whereas the others were running over. We finally decided that we would try it. When we arrived... More
