Although there are only two MN restaurants on the list on their website, I know that many of the Twin Cities and all of the Duluth area stores are also participating. I would suggest calling ahead before you go, but would guess that most stores are participating (I haven't heard of one that is not yet).

Code:
Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants invite all active duty and
veterans to one of 164 participating restaurants nationwide to pull up a
chair for a delicious meal and heartfelt thanks this Veterans Day. With
gratitude for their service and sacrifice, active duty and veterans will
eat free at participating locations on Veterans Day (November 11, 2008)
during regular business hours.

Veterans and active duty with proof of United States military service will
be able to go to one of the participating Applebee's and select one
complimentary entrée from a selection of delicious favorites: a savory
House Sirloin, hearty Riblet Basket, zesty Fiesta Lime Chicken®, a juicy
Quesadilla Burger or fresh Oriental Chicken Salad. All the traditional
sides are included.

"It's an honor to host an event that helps the neighborhood come together
and say thanks to our veterans and active servicemen and women," said Mike
Archer, President, Applebee's Services, Inc..

Proof of military service includes:
 *   U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card
 *   U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card
 *  DD214
 *  LES
 *  Citation or Commendation
 *  Photograph in uniform
 *  Veterans Organization Card

Wow, I wish there were more businesses like this!
'Two thumbs up' to Applebee's.

I wish there were more Applebees participating in this. Only two in the state of Minnesota? Why not all of them?

Still, it's a nice gesture.

Reread the first couple of sentences in my original post.

My guess is the website list is corporate stores and it's up to the franchise stores if they want to participate or not.
