Welcome Back, Neighbor!

April 27, 2020


As dining rooms gradually and safely begin to reopen across the country, you’ll notice a few changes when you visit us – it’s all to keep our guests and Team Members safe, so you can have a great visit.


We’re following federal, state and local mandates, which means things are going to look a bit different – like reduced seating for proper social distancing, Team Members with face coverings, a limited menu, condiments provided on request, one-time-use menus and contact-free payment where available. And of course, we have put even stricter cleaning and disinfecting procedures in place.


A few other things guests visiting us should know:

  1. No one with a fever or COVID-19 symptoms is permitted in the restaurant. We’ll see you when you feel better!
  2. Keep a safe 6-foot distance from other guests. We’re sure they like you, but you know the drill by now.
  3. Wait outside or in your car for a table, just not in the lobby. We’ll come get you. Fresh air is good for us.
  4. Wash your hands after using the restroom and cough or sneeze in your arm. You were already doing this, right?


Thank you for your patience and partnership with following these rules, so we can do what’s right to keep everyone safe.


And while a few dining rooms are reopening, nearly all Applebee’s restaurants nationwide remain open for To Go and Applebee’s Delivery where available. Click over to to order or open your mobile app.


Be well, and we hope to see you soon!
