Like many other reviewers, we have dined at several Applebee's. This one is by far the best we have visited. Much of that is thanks to our server James Hill, who not only provided great service but joined in the banter that was going on at the table. Much more personal that way and he was not intrusive with his... More

My husband ordered the babyback ribs with fries and mac and cheese and I ordered the bourbon Street Chicken and shrimp, with red potatoes and sauteed onions and mushrooms. First we each had a salad that came on an ice cold plate with lettuce, grated cheese and cherry tomato's. The whole salad was really cold and very fresh! The food... More

We ll my wife and I ordered the 2 for $20 which was actually an awesome deal, the meal was wonderful, we had riblets and the chicken and shrimp dinners and they were excellent, the cheese sticks were also good, but the atmosphere was funky and the table they sat us at was very sticky and dirty, had them wash...

Always a safe bet. You get what you have to expect. Very friendly staff. There's always a smile and a warm welcome. So it's a nice place to be.

I typically don't like to write a review on a chain restaurant, but Applebee's seems to be the choice among many, even when there are many other local options. This was a business meal with a large group, and their seating was not designed for large group interaction. I did enjoy the shrimp salad, even though it was a rather... More

Expensively priced for what you are getting. Even for a beer and appetizers, it like $20. Atmosphere ok, nothing special. They make you wait unnecessarily when you can see tables are available.

I used to go to Applebee's all the time but I guess I got burned out because everything tasted the same to me. After a long break, I have started going to Applebee's in Salem, OR. There are many new items on the menu that taste yummy. I don't care for the new machines on the table. You can place... More

Food was good, service was great, not enough selection of Dark Ale beer. Did not have to wait and plenty of parking.
