We stopped at this Applebee's on our way back to Canada. It's located right off of 81 which is very convenient for travellers. The restaurant and service exceeded our expectations. I ordered the Thai shrimp salad. My husband ordered the bourbon steak. Both of us were super impressed with the taste and quality of each dish. My salad was $12.79... More

Prompt service, I had a lunch combo of the better dishes. Enjoyable. I had the 4-cheese mac-n-cheese with chicken tenders, and the Clubhouse Grill sandwich combo.

Went to Applebee's for dinner while in Watertown. Great food and had a very good server. I like the machine on the table where you can pay when you want because then you don't have to wait.

Great staff, friendly and helpful. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our server (Gage) was awesome. Our meals (all of our party of 3) were delicious, good portions and good prices. I would recommend to friends and family and I look forward to going back next time I'm in the area.

Good selection, prompt service and convenient to hotel location. Server was friendly and kindly recommended the "two for twenty" specials; very economical choice!

Dropped in for an early dinner on a Friday and was quickly seated. The waitress was at my table within a few minutes and was very helpful. I had the chicken tortilla soup to start. I would rate it as a 7/10 - to many tortilla strips in it and not creamy enough for my liking but that is more... More

We went to have lunch but the place was packed so decided to return for dinner thinking it must be a great place to be at if it was so busy and looked forward to going back all afternoon. We returned for supper and were seated pretty quickly, but near the entrance and could hear the hostesses having their personal... More

The good: my husband enjoyed his hamburger and fries meal but was nearly finished by the time the mustard arrived. Still his food was good- thus the 2 stars. The poor: I couldn't even cut a piece out of my sirloin because of the fat and grizzle. it was served over grains that I didn't enjoy at all. I asked... More

We went to see Applebee's restaurant, because our friend recommend this to us, never ever, we did ask if this food is spicy, server said no, she was lying big time, we can't finish our food, because of lots of spicy stuff there, and we ask for no spices, lots of grease and overall, I did not like this restaurant...
