I count on the food being good at Applebee's. Their quality problem is they're always so busy and noisy!
We eat at the Ankeny Applebee's about once a month. They have great food and great service. The drinks are good, too.. The Cowboy burger is one of my favorites and I'll order extra BBQ sauce since it's so good.
Ive been going to applebees for years and this one is probably my favorite in the area. Our food was all hot and the order came out quickly! The manager, Jordy was a little odd even though she seemed nice. Good deals on some things but the drinks are a little pricey.
Our server was excellent. However, the employees clearly run the show. There were also several off duty employees drinking at the bar. The off duty employees, a horrible bartender and a dysfunctional manager successfully ruined my wife's birthday celebration. Worst Applebee's ever. Will never go back.
JMJ I enjoyed my meal and the service was very good. Have heard Applebee's might be closing some of their restaurants-this one should stay open.
Applebee's is a grade above some of it's competitors but it is one of your average family style restaurants. The food is good, the service is good and the restaurant is clean. It has a bar area good for the adult crowd but also a good family restaurant.
We have eaten here on 5 occaisions. Always good food & service. The noise in the place makes it difficult to carry on a discussion, so don't plan a working lunch here. There Manager Edana is awesome...but now has been transferred to another location, lucky them.
It is a typical Applebee's close to the interstate. However, the service was exceptional and the reason I am writing the review.
We have been here befor, and tried the Two For Twenty menu. It wes very good, and took half of it home. The manager stopped by to check on us. The server was very friendly. It has a very nice bar with plenty of T.Vs Will be coming back again.
