They didn't have a full Applebees Menu at this location. We wondered if it was due to it being a "gameday." The service for us was good. We enjoyed talking with the various students and the food was served warm and timely.

This Applebees had the typical reasonably priced food. I sat in the bar area since I was solo. The bartender was my server and took awhile to get to me because the bar area was half full. Every Applebees I have gone to seems to have slow service and this one was no different. The steak was cooked as I... More

Eat here for a basketball pre-game snack, lunch or dinner. The typical Applebee's food and beverages. Thomas was our waiter and did a superb job of service and food selection advice and making sure we were served in plenty of time to get to the game.

I wonder if they forgot about us after seating us for a long time as we sat without even being given water. The restaurant did not appear busy- not many tables with people. The host who sat us did not know how the outdoor table umbrella went up so left us in the sun. The waiter also only gave us... More

Your basic Applebee's: the familiar menu and decor, reasonable prices, fast service. Adjacent to the Commons Hotel on the East Bank campus of the University of Minnesota.

We didn't realize this location closed at midnight and arrived around 11:15 with the in-laws. We ordered burgers, and the server asked us, "pink or no pink?" Huh? We both said medium, please. "So a little pink?" Medium, please. My husband's burger was RAW. The server took his whole plate, so he lost his good french fries. She brought him... More

My dad had stayed backed, to be at my mom's bedside for testing. So we ordered extra food to go. It was quiet, enjoyable, and relaxing. Thanks for making... More

Although being an expensive place, it offers a good menu and nice environment, accompanied by friendly services.
