Come and Celebrate Your Moment!

Applebee’s Canada is your local casual dining restaurant where there’s always a reason to celebrate.

Encounter an enjoyable dining experience fit for any occasion: a romantic dinner, birthday party, a simple lunch or memorable family outing. There's always a moment worth celebrating!


Brand Promise

Life is jam-packed with thousands of precious moments worth celebrating. It’s about more than just a Walnut Blondie to sweeten your birthday; let’s raise a glass for those new prescription glasses (and finally being able to read the menu); let’s make some noise over your daughter’s first tied shoe; let’s raise the roof for taking down the Christmas tree in April.
It’s your special moment… come on over and we’ll make it a great one for you and your family. We take your celebration very seriously, because that’s how we roll. It’s how we make everything on your table tap dance into your belly. It’s why everyone on our team from the greeter waving you in, to the grill master working his craft go the extra mile to make your everyday celebrations worth remembering.

We’re always building strong and lasting relationships to make a positive social impact in our local communities.
