Went to dinner and the service was really good but the food was just mediocre. Steak was really tough. Asian wings were best thing.

We went for a meal here while on holiday in south California. We love Applebee's and this restaurant didn't let us down. The staff and manager were so friendly and gave us loads of tips on where to go and what to see. The food was great as usual and the margaritas were massive.

The food is great at this Applebee's. The wonton chicken tacos, spinach dip with the melted cheese on top. The desserts are always great but we like the Hot Blonde with the big scoop of vanilla ice cream. The calorie content on the Blonde is high but we just split it between 3-4 people and you get the great taste... More

Stopped in for the riblet platter only to find they no longer have it. So I ordered the bacon burger, it did come hot but took a half hour to get and had no flavor...no lettuce or tomato very very slow service

Went because we had a $25.00 gift card on a early Sunday Evening. Service - Not good to say the least. A family came in and was seated by the hostess and after a while did not even get a glass of water and got up and left. Servers were arguing about what tables they had to cover. We waited... More

Chain restaurants are supposed to provide consistency. Found a few differences. The spinach/artichoke dip was again a 5 star killer. My wife and I again ordered the Two for $25. She had the deep fried shrimp, which came with fries and cole slaw, 4 stars overall. I had the 7 oz. sirloin, ordered medium, but which was served well done.... More

We stopped here for dinner with a two- and four-year old, after a road trip. Not expecting much except some decent food and a fast dinner. We had a three-pack of appetizers - spinach/artichoke dip with chips, pretzels with cheese sauce, and mozzarella sticks. All tasty, hot, and a hit with the kids. Followed with fish and chips and some... More
