Great family place. Nice to take a larger group to. On my visit wait staff was very polite, and the food was exactly as I ordered.

I have an excellent entree' the caprese grilled chicken,served over garlic mashed potatoes!! Yum!!! It's a relatively new item on their menu and it's awesome! I highly recommend this dish! Also fast/friendly​ staff! Applebee's​ has definitely stepped it up over the years!!

The food was great, but not worth the price this last visit. I order the 328 calorie 4oz. sirloin with mushrooms & spinach. The amount of spinach equaled that of a table spoon & the mushrooms were two thin sliced pieces, covered with juice & a little rice. The price for this meal was $12.49.This does not include the price... More

It's a chain restaurant with supposedly well planned procedures for handling volumes of customers with some consistency. Two waitresses fought over our table and were confused as to who was supposed to serve us. Drinks took almost 20 minutes and appetizers 45 and the place wasn't super busy. The table next to us was not bused for at least half... More

Secondly, our waiter was incredibly inattentive....my husband found a bottle of ketchup for me (for my overcooked potatoes); our waiter never came by to see how our food tasted; and when we were done eating, my husband had...

Went for a birthday celebration with 13 people, first they wouldn't take reservations but we called and told them in advance we would be bringing 13 and when we got there we waited 45 mins to be seated. The waitresses were pretty good the food is mediocre and I wouldn't. Go back especially with a large party

I am in the area on a business trip. I "tried" to have supper at Applebee's in Merrillville, IN tonight. If I could rate this restaurant lower than '1', I would. Lousy service, lousy food! I ordered the Fiesta Lime Chicken, replacing the rice with their garlic mashed potatoes. When I got the entree, the chicken wasn't even warm! I... More
