We like to go after 8pm when thyey have Happy Hour, specials on drinks and appetizers are half off. This way we can share and try new things instead of getting stuck with something you may not like. They have a nice variety, and they are consistant at whatever Applebees you go to around the state!

Title says it all. The food was really good. The four cheese mac and cheese was good, as always. The Asian pineapple burger was really good too. Service was intrusive. My wife had barely started her meal when the waitress was already asking if we wanted dessert. She came by three times and asked the same question. Even though there... More

Food is good. Double crunch Shrimp is great. I'm amazed is that when I have home of August of this year, they gave a military discount and this time they didn't. It's just a little bit difference but it's still something that you should hold your word to.

I like that they have the Weight Watcher's menu options available. We typically sit in the bar area, good family environment

This restaurant was busy, but we were seated right away. Our meal was delicious! We had a shrimp and steak dinner, plentiful shrimp! The other meal we ordered was a club sandwich, which was large and very good. We saw people at another table order the wings and they looked so good. The only problem I saw was that they... More

I've never had anything bad here. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but it's only when they are horrifically busy. Servers are all friendly, sometimes a bit too friendly. Overall a place we always try to stop at. The half off appetizers and drink specials are a bonus.

I sat at the bar and was served with a drink and put my hamburger order in right away. Over 30 minutes later, the food finally arrived. The place was not busy so it should not have taken that long. When the plate was put in front of me, the french fries were cold, (the bartender went and got more... More

Really enjoy some of the menu items, but am frustrated when I ask if they can keep an ingredient out. 1. Sometimes they are premixed and can't - okay that reduces many items. 2. Sometimes they can but you lose some of the other ingredients - I can live with this but lose some of the taste. 3. They say... More

My husband and I had an impromptu date night - did some shopping at Yonker's and decided to stop at Applebee's on Euclid/Wilder. It was the biggest Applebee's that I've been in. I loved the fact that they had Lo Calorie entrees that looked so delicious! We decided on the Chicken/Shrimp with Tequila Lime sauce over Mexican rice - the... More
