Passing through and we stopped here for lunch. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, food and service could've been better. Our waitress was friendly but the rest of the staff were rude. Not a welcoming crowd and it's either they were very busy(standing around doing nothing) to acknowledge and seat us or maybe it's because we... More

This Applebee's location was a huge disappointment. Not very good service and the food was horrible. Food was cold when it came out and all our meals were dry and overcooked. Not worth the stop!

This food made us all gag. How can you mess up a Turkey Club Sandwich. Dry bun, Dry Turkey, Old Lettuce I left it on the plate. The others at the table had similar bad food. Most Applebee's I have been to were acceptable, however, stay away from this one.

On a drive from Denver to Wichita we stopped here because we were STARVING. Food wasn't fantastic, but we were hungry and just glad to have some sustenance. Staff was friendly, no complaints there. Music was loud and annoying. They were playing R&B, which isn't everyone's cup of tea. Not to bash that genre, but I think they should have... More

I was alone, so I sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly, quick to get you what you wanted or needed. The people whom were sitting by me also were very friendly. Good priced, not too expensive, however it isn't cheap either. Food was excellent

We decided to eat here for a special family outing. Our party was quite large--5 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 toddlers, and a baby. They sat us in a large booth but it was not large enough. We were squished! The service was average, nothing special. One of our entrees was completely wrong. When my adult daughter told the server how... More

Arrived late in the evening around 2230. Service was very fast - perhaps a little too fast as she was off before we could ask a question! The Cowboy burgers were a bit disappointing. We have had a lot of these and we know what we should be getting. We had no salad on the plate, the bacon was missing... More

I'm staying across the road at Comfort Inn and thought I'd order takeout from here. When I went over to get it, I was told to sit at the bar and the bartender would be right out to help me. When she came out, she seemed very disinterested in me since I was only there to get takeout. I ordered... More

We eat at Applebee's quite often. We are very pleased with both the quality of their food and the service. We have tried a number of different items and they are typically all very good. l would say that this restaurant is a place that we will continue to frequent over the other options in this area. Don't let the... More

This is always a busy restaurant but it is easy to see why. There are a lot of choices in Hays unless you go down town. But the food here is very tasty with a big menu. The margaritas are good and the beer is cold. Service is very efficient.
