My wife and I came in on 11/27/15 at around 9:45pm and was waited on by a heavier set guy with facial hair. He was the rudest waiter I have ever had. He was very short with us and very impatient. On top of that I ordered the mild wings he gave us the hot and he gave me the... More

I had not eaten in Applebee's for over 5 years due to a bad experience but thought we would give this one a try. The Server, Joshua, was very good and patient. The orders came quickly. Their grill is not hot enough to cook a rare steak. My med rare steak was medium. My mashed potatoes were cold. Talk about... More

Applebee's is usually one of our go-to restaurants when traveling as they generally are consistent in food quality and preparation. But not so with this particular restaurant. Because I'm often in Emporia I keep trying it with the hope it will eventually meet the chain's standard, but I finally gave up. I normally like Applebee's salads, but my favorite one... More

A discount was offered by our hotel, and Applebee's has predictable, reliable food, and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was friendly.

It's a chain, but the wait staff makes it unique. From greeter, water, and waiter real polite folks with a sense of humor.

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. Applebee's needs to put some focus on quality control....now!
