While shopping in Gaylord, Applebees is our favorite pick among so many restaurants. Salad and soup on a cold winter day was perfect. Portion sizes seems to be a bit larger. A little expensive for lunch, but good.

We had a super dinner with our waitress Jill who was superb. She never made us wait on anything and did not push us as so many do to turn the table,

Applebee's is always a must! Great food, friendly service and the new steak stir fry was delicious. It was also part of the 2 for $20 menu

Had a very pleasant lunch with friends. The service was great and so was the food. My husband the all you can eat soup and salad and the server was very good about coming back to check on him. I had the Quesadilla Burger and it was cooked to perfection and was delicious.

There was 9 people in our group and the waitress was awesome. She went out of way to get us the best deal with what everyone was ordering. She put together deals so it came out cheaper for us in the long run. My husband had a bunch of coupons from donating palates so we used them. This waitress earned... More

We've been here often and some times the wait staff is great and other times it's been awful. Lately it's been great and the food's been great, too. We come here as a family, date night, ladies night out, and my hubby comes after hockey games with the guys.

I have never enjoyed Applebees as much as I do since they added half price appetizers! Favorites are the sweet potato fries, chicken wonton tacos and siracha shrimp.

We visited this restaurant several times 3-4 years ago and we were disappointed with both the food and service. However, we've been there twice over the past two weeks and everything is much better now. The food is what you'd expect and the prices are very good for the portions. The wait staff is very attentive and we are pleased... More
