My parents view this burch run Applebee's as their hands-down favorite. They do frequent this place at least once a week, and I join them on occasion. The manager knows them by name, along with their favorite server. In fact their server invited them to her wedding! The food is always tasty and friendly service!

Well, nothing like ordering 2 soups and they come to the table cold. Not lukewarm, but flat out cold tomato soup and cold chicken tortilla soup. The other entrees were warm, but none of the food was hot at all. The waitress was very apologetic and nice, but cold food is a total turn off.

We were there while staying in Birch Run. The service was excellent, we asked to move to another table because of the air conditioner and was moved with no problem. My husband had the bourban steak and said it was quite good, I had the chicken salad and it was quite good also.

This one is my favorite to go to in the surrounding area. The people are great. They really know how to take care of you here. The food is always up to par or the manager fixes it.

Lunched here with family, the food was awesome, dessert was pretty good too. Loved that they had tablets for the kids to play on (for a small fee of $.99) the only thing that I was disappointed in was the host (Seth) he was very short with us when we asked questions and just acted as if he hated the...

Food was fine and the car-side service for "to-go" orders is always convenient. Staff remembered to include tableware which is always appreciated.

One of my favorite restaurants. Usually order food to go since we live near the restaurant. Love the chicken oriental salad and chicken platter.

My family used to eat here about once a month, but it's been less and less lately due to the quality of food and service. Because of the poor service we received on our last dine in visit, we opted for take out tonight. Our daughter only got a few bites into her dinner before telling us it tasted funny... More
