Like many people, we visit Applebee's several times a year. I've been watching their ads on tv and the steaks look so good, so I thought I'd try one. Really good! The herb garlic butter on top was very good, as it wandered over to...More

We visit Applebee's several times a year. The appetizers are delicious, especially the artichoke dip. My favorite is the Oriental Salad. Easy to find.

I have given this place several visits and I am done with them. Horrible service every time. The food is average on a good day. It is by far the worst Applebee's I have been to. Typical Ft. Dodge experience. Do not recommend!
