First let me say the service was not terrible. Just slower than I expected. Food was great though and waitress was friendly. Would recommend as a decent choice for a meal.

Used to be our go to restaurant when in Murray. Last two visits though I'm no t so sure. The restaurant was only about 1/2 to 1/3 full when we got there. Which for a Friday night was surprising. We were seated right away and our sever, Karen? was prompt and efficient. However when it came to the food it... More

Service was great for our family. Arrival was late in evening and service was not hurried and rushed. Server took her time and patience to provide/change menu items for each one of us. Couldn't have been happier.

Unless you live in the middle of nowhere, you've likely been to an Applebees so you know what to expect. We had a great server. I had a new entrée consisting of pepper encrusted steak over rice, spinach and mushrooms. It was very good.

Do not waste your time here unless you just want to be able to say you went! Prices are ridiculous for what you get! If you like to drink, don't bother ordering one here. I wondered if I had accidentally ordered a "virgin" drink. Very very small portions. Service was slow. I had to go find my server several times... More

We visited Applebee's during Murray State University's Family Weekend. We were surprised to be seated immediately with a family of 6. The restaurant is right across from the stadium. The server was pleasant. Our food was delivered promptly, and I have to compliment the dark haired young woman who delivered the appetizers and the entrees on being so genuinely friendly.... More

My Mom and I needed a place for something tasty but kinda light for a later supper/snack. The Murray Applebee's fit the bill perfectly! We ordered the spinach artichoke dip with a side of queso. It was freshly prepared and my mother enjoyed it very much. We also had the skinny blueberry drink and can recommend them as well. For... More

If you're visiting Murray for the experience, why would you go to a chain restaurant? They advertise the 2 for 1 pricing but the steaks are horrible

Love the food here. The service usually lacks some, they are not very attentive. The prices are not too bad for what you get on your plate. Would recommend as long as you are not in a hurry.
