A better experience than other reviews.

Old building, clean, understaffed, short wait, good reliable Applebys food. Serious disconnect between the bar service and table service. Need staff with training. Do not go if you are in a hurry.

This is either a really old restaurant of the owners/managers don't like to clean. Everything was sticky and if you look up at the air vents - well we almost walked out but we had already ordered our food and we were starving as we had been traveling. The food itself was good but they need more waitstaff and a... More

I recently ate here with my husband and we loved it. Mouse waitress was so nice and polite, even though she was swamped she always made time to check on us. Everytime we go in there we are going to ask for Her. We always heard it was a bad place, but compared to the restaurant next door, it's amazing.

The shrimp in my salad were barely cooked, still translucent. This was a to-go order so no returning it. Their Car side to-go, is like no others I've been to, you have to go inside to get your order. Found out after 12-minutes sitting in my car. The staff were none too friendly, It was like I was bothering for... More

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

We ordered dessert and waited forever for... 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
