45 Minutes To Get Two dinners

All we ordered was a Caesar salad & a chicken quesadilla & a house salad.....it took FOREVER. The service & server we nice but the kitchen needs to speed things up, I'd say. It was a bitter cold, icy night & it was warm & inviting inside.

We stopped here for dinner - 6:45 on Saturday - on our way to Colorado. After reading a couple reviews about bad service, we considered not stopping. However, we had a wonderful server and the food was delicious. The wait for our food was very reasonable especially considering the restaurant was full. We had the new green chili nachos and...

Among all Applebee's that I have visited around the country, this is "the one". What differentiates from the others is the very friendly staff. As I have always visited alone, this really makes a difference. During my stay in US, it was always a routine have lunch there.

The food was good when it finally arrived. My husband got his food long before I did. We had originally ordered and they were out so had to re order. The manager came to our table and was very apologetic for the re order and the delay in service. He made things right and we left very satisfied customers.

We stopped for dinner and a beer after a long day on the road. I absolutely love the chicken won ton tacos here and my ol mans burger and fries were good too. 5 bucks for a corona at happy hour was a bit much. Seriously, crank down the ac. It was too hot.

Went for lunch last week with a coworker at Applebee's. We were seated right away by a very nice hostess. Got our drink orders in without any issues. Then the wheels fell off the bus! Once the drinks came, they weren't refilled. Our appetizers came after our meal did. They food tasted alright. I was a fan of that Applebee's,... More

I ate there for lunch with a buddy recently. We sat at the bar (arriving at 12:04) and waited, at the bar, for 12 minutes to be recognized. The restaurant was about half full and the bartender was not busy. After about 35 minutes, we received our drinks and placed our order. The food came out, and mine was lukewarm... More

We're local, and ran out of time and energy to get dinner together last night, so we opted for Carside to Go. The fried green beans and accompanying sauce was very good. I just wish it was larger portion. DH had the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp which had a nice heat and was good. However, the mushroom pieces were... More

had a wonderful meal. I choose the salmon with spring veggies and it makes my mouth water now. Only disappointment was the unexpected $8 drink my husband ordered! The alcoholic mixed drink was fine we just didn't expect the price tag attached to it. The price wasn't stated when we ordered and we thought it was a 2$ margarita

When visiting a friend in Grand Island we decided on Applebees to eat. Wish we hadn't. They were busy and said it would be about a 30 minute wait (which turned into 50 min.) We were waited on right away but the food took a long time, Appetizers finally came about 3 minutes before our meal. After finally receiving our... More
