Hit or miss food

This is one of my wife's go-to places when we can't decide where to eat. I can take it or leave it. The appetizer sampler is my son's favorite (consists of boneless wings, celery sticks, fried mozzarella sticks, chips and spinach/artichoke dip, cheese quesadillas). My wife likes the oriental... read more

We went in midday on a Sunday so it was pretty empty. We sat there for about 15 minutes before we walked out. Not one person even acknowledged we were there other than the hostess when she sat us. There was a group of servers sitting and standing around in groups, one server actually working in her section kept looking... More

Stopped for lunch. My wife had spicy wonton chicken tacos and she loved them. I had the Franwitch. Best Philly cheese steak sandwich I have had since I was in Philly. Fried green beans were very good. Service was ok. New waitress, but you have to start some where. Manager came and paid a visit and seemed very pleasant.

I'll preface this with the info that the manager dropped the tab about 75%,but having said that, this entire visit should have been comped. It took 21 minutes until the waiter showed up. Drinks took another 20 minutes and were both horrible and wrong. Margarita without salt, strawberry daiquiri with salt instead of sugar. My steak wasn't cooked, it was... More

Not a lot to choose from if you are gluten free like our family but they do make the effort to have lists of allergen friendly foods available...

My husband and I eat out often, and Appleby's in Coralville, always serves us well. The food is delicious, and the servers are friendly and attentive. We love eating here. The Manager always comes over and asks us how they did. Our waitress, Natashca was very good, she was friendly, pleasant, and very attentive. We could not be any more... More

We had not been here in about six months.... It smelled a little funny when we entered. Both husband and I ordered the shrimp pasta suggested by server. It was blah as were the kids meals...how can you mess up grilled cheese? Really bothered by server's refusal to pre bus the table, even when I attempted to hand her my... More

Its ok. Not the best food ever but it has improved over the past year. I've eaten this in the past and it was terrible. My recent visit was not that bad. So overall its ok but I prefer Chilis
