Popular spot with typical American food. Service was good but seating very slow. Quality of food was middling but a good value which puts this restaurant above average.

We found in the back of the menu an offer for two entrees + one appetizer for $20. The entrees were limited in selection but we thought it was a good deal anyway. We each chose the chicken fingers and fries entree and the cheese sticks for our appetizer. The food was really good and more than we could eat.... More

Great food and service. Good menu variety. Not so friendly for younger kiddos. New menu choices are good, but still enjoy some of the old favorites like ribs and blonde maple brownie.

Applebee's is a casual dinning chain restaurant. I've eaten at the Bowling Green location several times over the past 10 years. This is a good place to have a beer or a cocktail. On my last visit I had the classic American Burger and fries. I started with their version of a cosmopolitan coctkail which was very good. The burger... More

Bowling Green, KY, is our favorite place to spend the night and eat on our way up to Illinois or on our way down to Florida, since is the half way point. Our favorite restaurant is Applebee's, near I-65 and outside a nice shopping center. It's a casual restaurant, that's good for groups, couples or family with children. The food... More

The service wasn't that great. We walked in and the hostess wouldn't even look up from cleaning the menus while she was speaking with us. Acted as though we were bothering her when all we did was enter the restaurant. However, our waitress was wonderful! Food was good, what you would expect. Great dessert! Came out in a timely manner,... More

We were concerned about the appearance from the outside, and once we went in, we were still concerned. This is not the best appearing Applebee's that we have been to. The service was okay, but sure nothing to brag about. The food was good and we didn't die. We probably won't go to this Applebee's again.

I ordered the sampler with 3 items for $12, including the boneless chicken wings, steak fajitas, and cheeseburger egg rolls. The boneless chicken wings and steak fajitas were fine. But the cheeseburger egg rolls had an overwhelming taste of pickles, even though the menu didn't say that they had pickles in them. I hate pickles, and the pickle taste was... More

I enjoy eating here. The food is good and the service is usually great! The 2 for $20 meals which includes an appetizer or salad, meal, and dessert, is a great deal!
