Sadly, a disappointing experience

Chicken tenders dry as leather, more like what you would get at a fast food restaurant, a salad with wilted lettuce, and dry french fries pretty much sums up our visit tonight. The only reason I'm giving an average rating was the ribs which were actually good and average baked potatoes... read more

Great experience with my family. Service was top notch, food was delicious. Our orders were delivered in plenty of time, barely any waiting.

We went on a Monday night past 4PM, and that means all hamburgers are $6.99 for the evening. We all ordered burgers at that price, and they will even cook them to order. Problem is we didn't get what we ordered, and they weren't cooked as we asked them to be. No problem, so we asked them to be cooked... More

Stopped in to have dinner on Wednesday evening. The service was fast. The wings were outstanding and the beer was cold. The restaurant is well maintained and obviously well managed.

We came here for lunch during our business meeting and it was good. The food and service were good. We were seated promptly and our server greeted promptly as well. Everyone reported their food was good and there we no complaints.

We enjoyed the 2 for $20 entrees and were pleasantly surprised. They were cooked to order and came to us rather quickly. The bonus was the beer & cocktail specials, only $2 & $3 each respectively. The servers were pleasant & cordial, for a nice relaxing evening.

Our family celebrated our son graduating college from Emporia State University! The food was prepared with care and detail. Our hostess was professional and courteous.

While most Applebee's are the same, you know what food you will get and the price you will pay. By the way, I always like the food and can handle the prices, this Applebee's surprised me. They have a parking spot out front reserved for veterans. Being a disabled veteran I was almost speechless. I didn't use the spot, and... More
