Casual dining, great experience. Its what is expected of Applebees. Good appetizers - boneless honey chicken wings were awesome.

I went there for lunch. The lunch menu is very limited but the choices are pretty good. The service was fast and friendly.

Like he title says, I ate here when I could find anything else. Food was cooked well, like just about any other Applebees that I have been to. The staff was very courteous.

Typical of the chain but service was very good and waitstaff friendly. Did an outstanding job on the Veterans menu. Did hear that some "veterans" seemed a little unappreciative of the free meals offered and 'expected' more. As Veteran, I never expect special treatment and always appreciate any consideration given.

Really, there is not much else in Alpena. This is about the best place for a quick and decent lunch. Typically good with good service. Food is great for a chain.

Cheese burger was good but my partner's meal, a salad with cooked chicken looked old and wasnt tasty. The service was above average as the waitress tried to help with special seating requirements for an injured party.

Tried to order different soups and salads and server told us all things we picked were spicy. Finally found choices that weren't. Appetizer was 10 dollars for 2 pretzel sticks and 4 mozzarella sticks. Total bill was almost 70, for lunch, for 4 adults and 1child. Way over priced and just not tasty.

Good place to eat, our waitress was good. My friend ordered a steak, rare and the one that they brought was to done and they said no problem and grilled him another and tossed in a free salad.
