Ok

The food was not bad. My steak was not really medium well but it was juicy and tasted pretty good. The service was slow it our server was friendly. It's a good place to eat and I would go back.

The specialty Burgers were without much flavor and smallish, but the bun and plate size made it look bigger. Plenty of staff all around, yet most were conversing with each other and not the customers. Lucky for us it wasn't crowded, so our service was average. For the most part, it met my expectations of what this restaurant would be... More

Standard chain restaurant. Decent service and fair priced food. Nothing remarkable. Shared the appetizer and 2 entrees special. Shrimp was good.

Standard Applebees restaurant. Usually has a good crowd and is pretty reliable. Across the street from Walmart.

Just got home from eating there. Very impressed with most area's. Had the Cross Rib plate. Very good. Service very good. I had a Perfect Margarita & it also was very good. Well prepared. I also liked the new menu & offerings. A little lengthy but great new items. Located fairly close to Purdue University so it is usually very... More

This Applebee's got pretty run down. Just got home from eating there. The new menu has a smaller better menu. We were pretty pleased with the unlimited fries. Overall this was a great dinner, we will go back soon!

We eat at the West Lafayette Applebee's often - usually at least once a week. Our Favorite soup is the potato which is the SOD on Wednesday and Monday - we wish they had it every day. Wait staff is friendly and usually no delay in being seated. We were there last evening and enjoyed our meal very much. Always... More

Boring, tasteless food, and small servings. Not impressed at all. Staff was friendly, but that was about it.

Stayed at the Four Points next door. Needed to have an early dinner with somewhat limited time. I am not generally a fan of Applebee's,but at least I knew what to expect. This place was basically average in every way. At least the service was better than I have had at some other locations. The waitress, a University student,was friendly... More
