Great service!!

The food is your usual Applebee's food, but the service was excellent. Our server was on top of all our needs before we asked.

Now, we are from Wales so our expectations of service may be quite low. Apparently it took a while for our food to arrive. About 20 minutes which in Britain is lightning fast. You'd be lucky to get a drink in 20 minutes back home. The manager came over to us personally, apologized and explained he'd bought our desert for... More

After a very long day of travel, our family of 7 was looking for somewhere close to the hotel to eat and so we selected Applebee's. It is what it is - we've had great experiences with Applebee's, particularly in our hometown area, and this wasn't quite the best one we had ever been to (the lime chicken dish off... More

Alyssa Watkins was so rude, food was cold chicken on salad tested like it sat out under heat lamp way too long. Server seemed upset she had to refill beverage or get drink from bar. She didn't care the lettuce was still frozen for the hamburger.

The restaurant was dirty...floor, restroom, trash overflowing outside. If there hadn't been several employees standing around chatting, they might have gotten the place cleaned up. Some of the food was good, some not so good. This has been our experience the last several times we've gone there have been terribly disappointed with the food, service, etc.. This time the cleanliness... More

We traveled 7000 miles this summer and came to trust the food at Applebee's in several states. Their food and prices are really good and the restaurants are clean and up to date.

We arrived in Hays at 10:00 pm after a long day's drive. We were concerned about finding a late night dinner and Applebee's was located near our hotel. This restaurant appeared clean and the wait staff was friendly. We were delighted to know that appetizers were 1/2 price on weekdays. My husband and I both ordered an item off the... More

We were looking for a quick meal while traveling and this fit the bill. Staff was friendly, service was quick and the food was good. We were finished in about 30 minutes.

Rude service. Could hear the waitress gossiping about coworkers only feet away, but could not get her attention to ask for silverware that was missing from our table. I ended up getting it myself, only to find my still frozen entrée at the table upon returning. I have never had such an awful experience at any Applebee's before.
