Excellent meal with my wife. Couple of steaks cooked as requested. Wish they served Coke instead of only Pepsi products. Rum & Pepsi just doesn't make it.

The last 3 visits some part of my meal has been cold. This time I ordered soup and a sandwich, when the soup came it was cold. When i next saw the server I told her the soup was cold, she apologized and said "The computers were down". I asked how you can cook soup in a computer. She replied,... More

Applebee's in Freeport is like any Applebee's throughout the country. This restaurant gets very crowded and often times have long waiting times exceeding 45 minutes. The food is good and the service is much better than the food. The crowds increase on the weekends and it's not so bad during the weekdays. They have a bar which seems to get... More

I love Applebee's, and used to love the Freeport location. However, when I took the whole family last week, it was a disappointment across the board. The waitress was inattentive and left us waiting forever to order, in spite of the fact they weren't very busy. Our drinks sat empty and weren't refilled until the meal was over. The kids... More

Friendly service, good food. A little on the noisy side, but were still able to visit. Loved the "perfect" marguirita.

I struggled to give this place a 2 rating. We've been there, reluctantly on my part, several times only because the dining options in Freeport are limited. I've been disappointed pretty much every time with the food. It's an ok place to go and sit at the bar and have an appetizer but that's it. The meals and food are... More
