Go to applebees when I go visit my son incollege. Food is cnsistently good. Waiters are niceer than waitresses. Wait time to get food is always too long.

my wife and I stopped here for a bite to eat after attending a concert at Ithaca College. We were seated immediately, ordered quickly and served in a timely manner. Food was very good, reasonably priced , and waiter was very attentive. Will return!

We had a late lunch and the service was excellent. It was not problem substituting all broccoli and the steak was tender and cooked just right.

Had a really nice dinner with our family. Felt like part of a family - loved the community spirit inside with the school teams being supported on the walls. Great service by Jenna who made sure we were looked after. Highly recommend this to anyone!

Understaffed in kitchen, was advised manager was preparing the dishes. Knowing that my standards were pretty high already. Was seated at table with silverware on floor, server was nice, food could have been better. Shrimp scampi usually involves scampi sauce, none was present with it. Steak was cooked medium as opposed to my requested medium rare. Vegetables were not steamed... More

It's an Applebee's so not much need to review the food fare. Decent flavor, average selections. But it is the staff that makes this place stand out. From multiple people saying hello, to several people checking in on us, everyone was above and beyond attentive. One server even stopped just to have a conversation about the bikes we were riding....

Good food, fast and efficient service. Place is pretty big and seats well its customers. Price is below from what to expected. Good size parking lot and a shopping mall nearby makes it a convenient restaurant to go either before or after shopping.

Applebees is a chain restaurant. I think people mistakenly get the idea that "chain restaurant" equates to bad food and bad service. We did not experience either of those issues on a recent Friday night visit. Our waitress Karen was very friendly and accommodating. We couldn't decide between 2 appetizers, so decided to order both. Karen suggested we then wait... More

Food was good, but four different people came to our table, and none bothered to remove our dirty dishes. Empty glasses and appetizer plates remained on the table throughout our meal. Our server was spread very thin.
