We often eat at the Houghton Applebee's when we're Up North. When we want flavor and consistency that is the place to go. The waitstaff is prompt and efficient. My favorite is the Fiesta Lime Chicken or the Fajita Rollup (not sure if that's what it is called). My husband is more adventurous and tries many different things, but he... More

Okay I'm giving three stars because the staff was lovely so was the manager who asked us how our meal was Our server was super nice and attentive And she only charged half for my meal because I don't eat meat and requested the salad without meat. Now most restaurants don't do this so I'm very pleased with that My... More

This is typical Applebee's fare, which means the appetizers were great. We enjoyed the wanton chicken tacos and the cheeseburger rolls. Unfortunately, things kinda rolled downhill after that. Our waitress was pretty casual about taking our order, and there weren't even that many people there in the late afternoon. We both decided on the new hand-cut, wood-fired Premium Butcher's Reserve... More

Believe it or not, I don't think that I"ve ever been to an Appleby's. I avoid franchises as much as possible. But here's the situation, 4 bikers want to go all the way north to Copper Harbor, MI and the weather is bad: cold and damp. So when we stop for gas in Houghton, we decide to return to point... More

This place is so much nicer than the other Applebee's I've eaten. While all of them sere decent, this one has three things that make me enjoy eating out: 1) reasonable prices 2) great food 3) fabulous staff. We arrived before 4 p.m. and I was able to buy tap Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy that was a lemony summer beer and... More

The prices are reasonable. The food is consistently good every time we go and the portion sizes are always more then enough. We had a crabby teenager on this particular day and the staff was awesome. Friendly service is always a bonus. They could do a little better keeping the bathroom clean. Other then that, no complaints. We keep going... More

We really enjoy the afternoon soup & salad special. Delicious! The service we've received at this location is also excellent. Never had a complaint here.

Predictable menu with consistent results. Ordered take out as I was staying near by which was convenient. Young lady was pleasant who helped me with my order but just a job to her. Good was fine but nothing that leaves a late night craving. Memorable no, consistent yes.

I've eaten here a total of 3 times in the last 4 years. I forget details of the previous two visits, other than the food was mediocre tasting and tremendously greasy. I got heartburn afterwards, and my stomach is pretty tough. Today I took my wife there because it was Veteran's Day and I could get free food; more importantly... More
