Happy Memorial Day! Today is a great day to gather with friends and family at your neighborhood Applebee’s, because most restaurant locations are open during their normal business hours today, Monday, May 31, 2021, according to a statement provided to Heavy.

Applebee’s restaurants are independently owned and operated, so store owners can set their own hours, the statement said. It’s a good idea to check with your neighborhood restaurant to confirm their hours. Find the Applebee’s near you and their contact information here.
