We have visited other Applebee restaurants and even ordered the same items we did at the Tempe Applebee with totally different results. After reading reviews from other patrons, I'm wondering why this Applebee's hasn't done something to fix the problems with staff. Our order was from the 2 for $25 menu. We've had Applebee ribs elsewhere and they were delicious... More

Bad scary negative place. Mike bartender banned my poor husband forever from the place after my poor husband had 2 glasses wine and had trouble with his Alzheimer's disease finding the bathroom. Mike lied and unfairly accused my husband of using the bathroom in the kitchen? Which 20 people testified did not happen. Mike the bartender needs to be fired... More

We have been here three times now and the food has been always good. Not great but good for the price. I will admit we only went here because of their advertised specials like BOGO or Happy Hour deals. The bar area is never crowed so it is easy to get a seat even during a football game. The only...

I do not know why I stop at this place. I have been to many different applebee's and the service and food are horrible and poor and the price is always steep. I wish I had stopped at Jack in the Box that was not too far away. Service would have been better, and food no worse, and price a... More

I had the Thai Shrimp Salad which was fresh but WAY too spicy and I LIKE spicy. It was a different kind of spicy, not really a good kind. We also had some boneless wings which weren't all that tasty but that might have been because they were honey. The steak was nicely done and the mashed potatoes were good.... More
