ABOUT US

It all started in 1980 in Atlanta, Georgia

Bill and TJ Palmer opened the restaurant that would later become Applebee’s. We’ve grown up a lot since then, with almost 2,000 locations in the U.S. and around the world. Here you will always be welcome – for delicious food, in a neighborhood setting, with attentive service, at a great value.

Eatin’ good
in the neighborhood

Our casual atmosphere and attentive staff will make sure you’re eatin’ good whenever you step into an Applebee’s. Our extensive menu of delicious comfort food is sure to have something for everyone to love.
