Maybe especially for foreigners Applebee`s is always a good choice. Compared to many other diners the food looks and tastes better. Also the prices are good. We where never disappointed.

Mike is a good guy, head on his shoulders. Pork chop chutney is an absolute delight. I do however recommend the waitress that is a hard of hearing. Her speed is quick, she's smiley and a good person as. Whole

The food was good, and the service was average. The menu could have been a little as compared to other states, and cleanliness needs to looked at. The floors and sitting areas were dirty, and our main entrees were served in a staggered manner.

We recently rediscovered Applebee's and were very pleased. Our little niece loves this place so we decided to make her happy and have lunch there. That was several months ago and we were so pleased with their updated menu we've been back several times for dinner. Their menu selection is nicely varied and it now offers lower calorie choices; and... More

Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable but got our orders wrong but they did replace it. Food were not delivered all at once. Both waiters and waitresses kept on delivering the food to the wrong table. Even at one point they were all gathering in one corner doing nothing and just talking. I hope the manager were more responsible.

I went with my boyfriend to have a couple of beers and to eat something. At the begining we forgot the passports in the hotel room (we are not US citizens), so the bartender told us that she needs the passports anyway. We understood that, we brought them from the hotel room and in the moment we sit at the... More

We meant to eat dinner at the Rainforest Cafe in Menlo Park but by the time we got there it was 9:30pm and they were closed for the night so we came to Applebees. Food was great..atmosphere was good. I guess because it was a Tuesday night the restaurant was not expecting a big crowd and there seemed to have... More

A cosy place for a family dinner. We were 8 in the group. We were welcomed at the door & quickly seated. Ordered the drinks & the appetisers, quickly served. The kids ordered their choice of ribs, while the adults opted for the 2 for $20 plus the add-ons. The main course took a while. Food was good value for... More

Food was ok. Portion way too small for the price. My food came out much later than the others. Should not have been charged for the meal. Waitress sweet but manager was argumentative. He should learn from the waitress.
