The Food was good my wife and I had a light shrimp dish that was diet friendly and was tasty, we also had their perfect Margaritas and they were disappointing, service was good but over all no wow factor here.

Every time we've ate here we have had exceptional service and very good food. Love their soups and appetizers. We usually get a cup of soup and share a couple appitizers. The lunches are a very good deal and tasty as well.

We only ate breakfast here and the food was consistently good. Friendly service as well. Good value. Got breakfast for 9 people for about $60. The hotel (Quality Inn) we stayed at gave us coupons for 20% off.

Applebee's is a joke! They could have killed me sat when they cooked my meal with shellfish. Thank goodness for the EMT's in Ogemaw County and their epi-pen. Applebee's customer service is a joke. Only way to reach their corporate it via website. I tried talking to their manager, Tom, the day after the incident as we had talked to... More

Applebee's is consistent and the experience here was no different. Super friendly staff, tasty food and reasonable prices. It's the safest place to eat in America - I'm Canadian we don't have very many here which is very disappointing.

Had dinner with 3 of my family after playing golf. Service was very good and food was delivered in a reasonable time. Ordered were chicken tenders, fish & chips and appetizes. All was good. No problems..

Excellent dinners. Steaks were done to perfection. Manager, Doug was very friendly and made diners feel welcome and appreciated. Ashley, our server was very helpful and courteous. Best of the many Applebee's I have been in.
