its funny how much these places are the same yet so different. They all look the same but the service is the standout

I went with my family to the Applebees on Shaw and Marty for a graduation celebration and had a great experience. The waitress was calm and kind even with all 23 of us. Did I mention she's really pretty too?

Applebees is pricey, the Chilis across the street has better prices. $8 for a Sam Adams beer is outrageous. It gets packed and has a good crowd but overpriced for the location in my view.

Took my 92 year old mother-in-law, daughter and 3 grandkids to this Applebee's this weekend. Perfect spot for all of us to gather together and enjoy some family time. Our server, I believe her name was Samantha, went above and beyond. The kids were excited about the computer game on the table. When we found that you were only allowed... More

It is an excellent family restaurant with reasonable prices. My grandkids love it as they can always find something they will eat. Plus I can find something I like also.

We have eaten at Applebees at many different locations and had some gift cards to use. This location was very busy and also very, very, cold. The air conditioning was on full blast with it only 60 degrees outside. Very freezing. Everyone inside had their jackets on. When we asked to have it turned off, it was only off for... More

We had the 2 for 20 $ menu, and it's a great deal. Pretty tasty "lean" chicken, I was kind of surprised that it tasted this good. Also, great service and nice atmosphere. Much better than most other applebee's I've visited over the years.

I have never been to any Applebee's and been disappointed! Friendly service, good pricing and good meal! If you are here on Shaw Avenue and trying to decide if you should go to Chili's or Applebee's, choose the Applebee's.

Some serve Coca Cola products, most serve Pepsi. Salad portions are always different and contain different ingredients. Some give more chicken, less greens. Quality is always fairly good however. They have added a smart ordering system with a table top tablet for drinks and appetizers, as well as a "swipe your card" option to pay. Pretty slick!!!

We both had the grilled chicken breast sandwich, one with fries and one with fruit. They brought out a calorie menu for my cousin who asked for it. The food was good, hot, fresh, and the service was spot on.
