I was visiting my parents on Easter Sunday. I had been there all day. After, I stopped here for a quick bite. It was the perfect time to stop in as it was between lunch and dinner so the crowd was sparse. I then decided to have BBQ Ribs instead of the usual burger & fries order. They looked good... More

Dinner with friends was very enjoyable. Our waiter, Edward, was prompt and friendly and also a good sport. My Fiesta Lime Chicken was evidently an old bird because it was a bit tough. When I told Edward, he evidently told the manager and she immediately came by to not only apologize but soon brought me another meal. When the bill... More

Visited this chain and was totally let down. It wasnt very busy for a saturday afternoon yet the kitchen was obviously overwhelmed. Party of four at our table (2 adults, 2 kids) and 3 of the 4 orders were wrong, the plates arrived 10 minutes apart. Obviously it was take your monkey to work day because i had to coax... More

I hadn't been to Applebee's in a while but have now gone twice in one week. Menu is updated but with old favorites still. Food was fast and tasty. Onion rings are great and can't beat the 2 for $20 deal (app or salads plus two select entrees).

We have visited Applebee's three times recently, and from the moment their staff held the doors open for us to the time we paid our check, our experience has been top notch. The wait staff is attentive but not intrusive. The food has been very good, well prepared, from a steak perfectly done to order, and vegetables cooked just right,... More

You can always count on a great salad and most the time, good service at Applebees. The price is good too.

We found the Applebee's in Iowa City a real pleasure. One of their new items was Steak n' Grains and it was very good. The staff was very pleasant and checked back regularly to see if we needed anything else.

We went to this Applebee's for lunch and my memory was refreshed as to why we hadn't eaten at an Applebee's in a long, long time. I ordered the Maple Bacon Chicken Piadini and, unfortunately, it tasted terrible. It's supposed to have a maple mustard on it, but someone had to have really screwed up and put some type of... More

This is a good Applebee's but not quite as good as the one in North Platte, Nebraska, but close. The food was very good and we would definitely return. We had the Salmon and lemon chicken and my son had the American burger. The place was clean.
