On the road so looking for a place away from the freeway with more of the locals. Try to find a local, non franchise type of place but were a bit tired so gave in to this franchise. Turned out very well. Our waitress was very good and the meal was served to perfection. Decor was fine and reasonably clean.... More

We stopped here wanting to get in and back on the road within an hour as we still had a long drive back to Iowa from Colorado ahead of us. It did end up taking pretty close to an hour, but I think it might have taken longer if we hadn't said something to our waitress, Julianna, when we were... More

My family went here for lunch, and it was a very good lunch! The restaurant was clean and the staff was great. Would recommend it!

Went to Applebee's for Father's Day and one of us ordered a virgin Bloody Mary. The waiter was told by the bartender that he couldn't make the non-alcoholic version of a bloody mary because he wouldn't be able to track it, meaning once he made it he wouldn't be able to tell the difference from all the other bloody Mary's...

I had a wonderful salad! It was really late and we were tired, but the staff was upbeat and positive. The food was good and I had a really gooey, chocolate mess that I will remember for a long time.

I find of late many Applebee's don't get good reviews. I have liked them but not at one for awhile. While traveling we went for dinner at the Kearney NE. Staff friendly, waitress nice, service good- we both had steak with potatoes & sautéed (of steamed) vegetables. I have to say the veggies were pretty raw and hard to cut.... More

Car trouble meant we arrived in Kearny very late in the evening but we wanted a meal so we went to the Applebees that was open until midnight. They were very friendly despite us arriving late. We were served quickly and efficiently and our meals were great too. Got to love their Cowboy burgers!

The service was poor and the food was terrible. My fiance ordered a chicken fried steak that was hard as a rock and actually had mold growing on the bottom. When we told the server she threw the blame onto the cook and instead of getting a new one she only gave a 20% discount on his meal. Worthless. Will... More

The variety of choices are great....Easy to make substitutes if a customer is not wanting menu suggestions. Flavored drinks and refills always make a customer want to return. Clean bathrooms.

Why is this place so popular? ... we went because my husband had an Applebee's gift card. Never again. Our waiter/server was rushed off his feet, a nice kid but he had too much to do. He took our order, but the starter was brought by a different server and our entree by yet another server. When he came back... More
