The Applebee’s grill and bar menu is extensive and varied. This is a casual dining restaurant that doesn’t stick to a single cuisine, offering everything from seafood dishes to steak dishes, ribs and more. What’s more, the Applebee’s menu is constantly changing, constantly updating. It always has something new to offer even the most dedicated repeat customer, which makes this one of the most exciting family restaurant chains in the United States.
Adding to the family appeal is the fact that Applebee’s Menu Prices are very reasonable. This ensures that all of the family can drop-by to enjoy lunch in a relaxing dining setting. Every family knows how difficult it can be to take everyone out for a meal, because as soon as you pay for mains, drinks, sides and desserts for everyone, you’re in a considerable hole. But that’s not the case here and there is always something affordable and worthwhile available.
To give you an idea of what you can expect from the Applebee’s menu we have included it in full below. We are constantly working hard to check this and change it when and where needed, so make sure you come back to check updated info.

Applebee’s Lunch Menu
This is perhaps the main part of the Applebee’s menu. This is when they are at their most popular. There are soups, salads, sandwiches and a host of other light lunches to keep you and your family full until dinner time. And it will definitely fill a hole, because as we explained on our Applebee’s Nutrition Info page, these dishes are packed with calories.
The lunch items are not the most calorific, as that honor would go to the dinner menu, but they still pack one hell of a punch, ranging from 300 calories to around 1,000 calories per dish, with an average somewhere around 700.
Blue Ribbon Ribs & Juicy Steaks
|9 oz. House Sirloin||$14.69|
|Shrimp ‘N Parmesan Sirloin||$17.99|
Applebee’s Dinner Menu
Our favorites on the Applebee’s menu are all in the dinner menu. There are pastas, tacos and a host of other internationally inspired dishes that Americans have fallen in love with. Some of our favorites on this menu include the Whisky Bacon Burger, which is big and meaty enough to rival anything you can find on the Smashburger menu and the Red Robin menu.
We would also recommend the Quesadilla Burger. This contains close to 1200 calories and it is a cheesy and meaty mess, but it’s also delicious and will leave you with a leaden weight on your stomach and a huge smile on your face. In fact, all of the burgers on this menu are great, but we could say the same amount many other burger menus.

Applebee’s Kids Menu
Don’t think your kids can make it all of the way through one of the main dishes on the Applebee’s menu? Then order from the kids menu instead. These are more kid friendly. They are also smaller, less messy and cheaper. So steer those little eyes away from the big burgers and bowls of pastas and get them to focus on this menu instead.
|Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp||$12.99|
|Bourbon Street Steak||$14.99|
|Sizzling Double Barrel Whisky Sirloins||$13.99|
Applebee’s Gluten-Free Menu
The Applebee’s menu is one of the best when it comes to gluten-free products. They have a range of dishes across the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as a number of desserts. These dishes are also reasonably priced, and they haven’t tacked on a big price increase just for the honor of calling it gluten-free.

Applebee’s Low-Calorie Menu Options

|Chicken Tenders Platter||$10.99|
|Chicken Tenders Platter (Smaller-portioned basked served with fries.)||$9.49|

Applebee’s Dessert Menu
Desserts are always a hidden gem on these menus. They have some amazing cheesecakes, pies and other traditional American desserts. The portions are huge, the calories are through the roof, but the taste is absolutely amazing. Just order a big portion, grab a few forks or spoons and let all of the family tuck in. There is no better way to finish the meal and as you can see from the table below they are also quite cheap.

|Salted Caramel Pretzel Bites||$3.99|
Applebee’s Appetizers Menu
|Flavored Lemonades And Iced Teas||$2.09|
Great finger food that will sate those appetites until the main meal arrives. We recommend the Cheeseburger Egg Roles if you can find them. The only bad thing is that you’ll eventually have to stop eating them and move onto your main meal.

Applebee’s Menu Extras
The first store opened in November of 1980, when it went by the less-catchy “T.J. Applebee’s Rx for Edibles and Elixirs”. It sounded more like a store you’d expect to find in a Japanese RPG, one that sells health potions and power-ups. However, it didn’t last, and they sold their last power-up in 1986, when they became “Applebee’s”. Whether you love the chicken tenders, buffalo wings, salads, or desserts, Applebee’s has you covered.
The naming process was much more convoluted than it usually is. Contrary to what you might think, it was not named after the founder. The owners, Bill and T.J Palmer (husband and wife), wanted to name it “Appleby’s”. But that name had already been chosen. They then decided to call it “Cinnamon” or “Peppers”. But those two names were already chosen. It seems like the name was less about the owner’s surname and more about getting the name of a food in there and creating something that sounded fresh.
