I went there because it was featured in the movie, Talledga Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby AND I wanted steak that night (this past Friday, 11 November 2016) but did not have the time to drive to Golden Corral, Frederick, MD. For some reason there is NO Golden Corral in Montgomery County, MD. It was nice and the eight... More

We have been to this restaurant 5 times and I can say the food has always been good. The service is friendly and attentive. On one occasion there was a very large party that took over about a third of the restaurant. They were yelling from table to table and wandering around like they were the only ones in the... More

Went out for dinner and had a taste for steak bu wanted to stay within my budget. Chose to go to Applebees since it was close and prices looked good. Was not disappointed: the steak was cooked correctly (medium rare), and the mashed potatoes were creamy and green beans crisp, not soggy. Service was good even though the place was... More

I love the crowd here, very interesting staffs and good food (value vs. price using the gift card). lately they added the price on 2 for $20 menu, to get the steak and other dishes for special menu, you will have to pay more. I am not a bar food fan so I prefer eat healthier dishes, their veges are... More

This is a spot I occasionally visit with the guys. Good spot with great deals. The food is mediocre with a few good items. Wings are surprisingly good. Fries are good. The main steak aren't top quality and not cooked to perfection but what can you expect. It's not a high end restaurant for that. Good chilled spot when you're... More

Typical sports bar food. The only requiting factor being big helpings. But stodgy, didn't taste terrific and the loos were dirty and broken. Nothing much to recommend.

My husband and I went for dinner and we saw a new menu for summer. We decided to get 2 new salads that looked delicious in the pictures. One had grilled shrimp and watermelon but the watermelon was neither warm nor with grill marks. The other had meat and chimichurri but the meat was cold and very hard to chew... More

Applebee's serves fairly average fair in the american cuisine style. The carry out is good for when you don't want to cook, but don't want to eat out better. A better choice than the pizzerias in the Germantown area.

Lunch with a girlfriend who had her grandaughter with her) I hadn't seen in several years, we had a lot to catch up on. The restaurant was not terribly busy which might explain wait staff checking very frequently to see if we were "OK" First few times, it was ok, but after a while it was irritating to have your...

Applebee's is just two miles from our home. It's great for family dining or for just watching a game with friends. It is very popular in the neighborhood so it can get crowded but the wait has never been too long. Food selections are very good but nothing spectacular or exotic. I'm told this particular restaurant is a training site... More
