Great food lacking adequate ac

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

My wife and I went there after doing some shopping in Grand Island. We are both fans of Applebees, after going there numerous time a month in Kearney, Nebraska. We, however, were truly disappointed by this one. The food was tasteless, it looked sloppy, and the restaurant itself (seats, tables, carpet) looked like it had needed to be replace 3-4... More

Had a nice scotch to compliment my Marsala steak; steak was done perfectly. Very good. Service was great; price was typical for a 7 ounce portion.

There's not much I could tell you about eating at Applebees -- if you've been in one recently, you know the menu and how the food will taste. This restaurant was very predictable: the food and service was good -- no complaints. What made this one stand out was two events: my wife and I got there at the height... More

Applebee's in Grand Island, NE is a great place to eat. The service is always good. The people that work there are always friendly. They have a super riblet dinner. Have never had a bad meal.
