My wife and I had dinner at Applebees. My shrimp wonton with added chili sauce was excellent. My wife had Fiesta Chicken and it also was excellent. The double chocolate dessert was a great finish. Our server was very helpful and always smiling.

When traveling, my husband and I always get to the point where we just want some fresh vegetables. Applebees is the place we go. The rest of their food is also great but we really enjoy the salad bar. I've seen ads recently that they have extended their bar, so we will go by and check that out. Applebees also... More

I've been going to Applebee's for years. They have them in the Middle East and I'd previously visited this one about 5 years ago. The menu had barely changed - which is fine as I always eat the same thing - fiesta lime chicken. It's usually pretty good but here it was so salty that I couldn't eat it and... More

I ate here three times. The first and second times, I had the 6 oz sirloin dinner. The first time was excellent, and the second time was average. The first time was a perfect piece of steak with no fat or grizzle. I was able to eat every bite which was seasoned very well. The second steak was not a... More

You can expect a lot of the "norm" here, but some changes are kind of a bummer. We Asked about the crispy green beans- they don't have them anymore. (insert sad face here) but our waiter Adam asked anyway. His request was denied BUT he made up for our disappointment by bringing us fresh salsa and chips! What an unexpected... More

This is the most disorganized place I have been in lately. If it had a manager, it was not apparent. The hostess did not know what her job was, the waitresses did not know what table they worked at. The food came back incomplete. No one in this place knew what they were doing. Applebees should investigate this place or... More

It had been a long time since I had been here and honestly I didn't expect much based on previous visits. Our little town doesn't have much to offer for dining of any sort so going to Applebeees was kind of a "do I have to?". Anyway greeted perfectly, seated quickly, server (Briana) was perfect. Seemed to be there everytime... More

While we were in South Boston my wife wanted a predictable restaurant and so she chose Applebys because of the wide variety of menu items. The staff were friendly and answered our questions about the food. Fast, friendly service. Serveres seemed to help one another out.

We like to try non-chain places, but sometimes it's nice to go where you know what to expect. Pretty good food, pretty good waiters, pretty good atmosphere. I will say the tomato basil soup, which I'd never tried, was very tasty. At this particular Applebee's, we waited probably longer than we needed to to get seated. It was 2:30 in... More
