Now we waited another 15 minutes for the drinks. I ordered... More

I like the food and atmosphere at Applebee's. Everything I've ever ordered has been delicious. The drinks are great also. Service is fast and attentive. The menu is very original, always something different and interesting to try. I would definitely go there again.

We would not usually dine at Applebee's but we received a gift card as a thank you. We chose the French Onion Soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup and both were very good and they were served nice and hot. We also tried the Wedge Salad which turned out to be a pretty small wedge for the price, however it was tasty... More

Service was quick at this property, menu selections very good and price was quite acceptable. We were looking for some light fare after the normal dinner hour, and Applebee's offered just the right types of menu items for which we were looking.

My wife and I frequent this Applebee's in McHenry often. The Service is getting worse by the week?? Don't know why? Usually the Manager stops by several times during the visit? But the newest Manager is seldom seen??? The Food is good. We have problems getting refills. Just not as enjoyable as before!
