They have good happy hour specials on drinks the food however is terrible and should be avoided. The bartenders are friendly.

I was visiting my son at the U. of Maryland to help him move to his new place for the Summer. We were trying to figure out where to go and saw Applebee's and decided it would be quick, predictable, etc. It was around 2 pm and the place was lightly populated. Our server came right over and was very... More

Applebee's was the only place open for dinner at 11pm last night ( they apparently serve until 1am) & the place was mobbed. Food was fair but the service was horrible & we had to cancel several items when we still hadn't been served at midnight

Food was tasty, server pleasant, but took us 1/2 hr to get a beer & cocktail at 2 p.m. on Monday, and another 1/2 hr to get our food. Luckily, we were not in any hurry.

I came here with my parents randomly because they were starving. Turns out it was a great choice. Yes, you have to pay for parking but we only spent a dollar. The service was quick and our waitress was so friendly and helpful. It's reasonably priced, the food is tasty, and the portions are generous. I recommend the garlic chicken... More

We went here for drinks, fun food and to watch a game. It was around 7:00 p.m. The dining area was busy but not crowded. The side dinging area was a mess. We were seated. A waitress took our order and we waited. After 25 minutes we asked the host (male) to send over our waitress and he sent over... More

This restaurant is NOT WORTH the time. I went there with 5 friends... we ordered only drinks and appetizers and it took us over 2 hours from start to finish. We went there for half-off apps. I asked the server if a certain dish fell under the "half-off" deal, and he said no. So I told him I was there... More

Came here after leaving another restaurant so we were really hungry. Got the sampler appetizer and all three things were great. One was the chicken quesadilla, which seemed to have gone back to its original recipe and was so good. Had the chicken tortilla soup and found it to be very spicy as in hot and I normally do heat...

Applebee is a neighborhood favorite which explains why it is always crowded. The food is average and service is good, depending on the time of day you visit. When you begin your dinner with a signature Applebee salad, you won't go wrong.
