Having walked out on Whiskey Grill (separate review) because of inedible food, I am still hungry, so I go right next door to Applebees. It is also noisy, but much cleaner than the other guys. It’s Saturday night, so space is at a premium and I sit at the bar where I discover the “new improved” Applbebee’s menu and am... More

Passing through Saint Joseph, Missouri we stopped at this restaurant for lunch.......our first mistake! Upon entering (which should have been our first clue) the place looked to be in disarray! Dirty dishes all over the tables, table cleaning wipes laying everywhere and food crumbs on the floors. We ordered the featured summer salad advertised, listing strawberries, avocado, grilled chicken mixed... More

I had decided to give this place a try since it did have mixed reviews, big mistake. This is more of a bar atmosphere than a restaurant, oke, language, etc. When I entered, I had to wait 10 min to have someone come up to seat me even though many staff walked paste and looked at me. The hostess was... More

I've never been a true fan of Applebee's but do eat there occasionally with friends or coworkers in Kansas City and always receive a good tasting meal with good service. Recently I was given an Applebee's gift card and decided to use it when my wife and I were in St. Joseph. First off, someone really needs to teach the... More

Bad service waitress said we could have salads instead of veggies but then charged extra never gave refills and my steak was tough.

First of all, when we went in their hostess barely acknowledged us and hardly looked at us. Our waiter was excellent and the only good thing about the experience. Our onion rings were great and then it went down hill fast. I ordered a baked potatoe and since the ones they had were dry, they offered me a sub. The... More

We have eaten at Applebees before and had an average experience or better. Ordering off the 2 for $20.00 menu the steak was very tough and the service a little lacking in some areas. Also it was smoky nearby and we are used to smoke free restaurants.

This has been a staple for many years and always offers a good menu. It is a sports bar so this isn't the place to go for a quiet meal.
