Most Applebees seem corporate chain portion controlled places to us but this one was a bit better. Surprised us.

We had an Awesome grilled lemon chicken with salad for two of us for $20.00. It was a huge salad with quinoa, cranberries and celery. It was so yummy and a real deal. Danielle was our server and she was GREAT!!!

Another late "dinner" and didn't want to drive far or internet search so Applebee's it was. Surprised us, one of the best we've been to in a while. Glad we stopped in.

Great to order online and walk from my motel to grab it! Easy order online and go in and pick up. Nice when traveling with a dog!

I am not a big fan of Chain restaurants and have not been a fan of Applebee's, but I have to say I had lunch at this one at it was great. Service was great and the food was very good. I really enjoyed it. It has changed my mind on Applebee's. I would gladly stop at this one again.

First of all, I have to state that I tend to favor non-chain restaurants in cities that I visit. This restaurant was close to my hotel and it was open late at night (after 9 p.m.) so this appeared to be a good choice at that time.

After a day of friends, art projects and conversation, we chose to unwind at Applebee's. We had no problem securing a table. We ordered and the food case timely. The Thai Spinach salad was good, but not at good as salads previously ordered at that establishment. The service was good and we enjoyed our visit. Our waitress was friendly.

Monday evening was Burger night so we all 3 of us had a different type, really good food and the service was good as well. Excellent value for money, least on a Monday night. Pity I will not be in Grand Rapids next Monday
