Applebee's is a fabulous restaurant. Easy to get in and out of as it is located in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Like any Applebee's the food is made to order and there is a great selection to choose from. My favorite is the riblets -- just love their sauce. For those who drink alcohol, there is a nice size bar.... More

Hornell is a small city and Applebee's is the Big Fish in the small pond. The big news is the new menu. It is a lot more interesting than the winter menu. There is the same old Mexican options and deep fried everything. The steak was ordered medium, specifically "pink". It was not pink at all. The veggies were sparse... More

Passing through area on a road trip what a great decision! Food lovely and massive portions..although still managed a delicious apple cheese cake for dessert. Staff really friendly and efficient, particularly the manager Jonathan ( thanks for all your help with our travel plans!) well worth a visit here you won't be sorry. Wish we lived closer!

Applebees was located near our hotel and the food was delicious and reasonable. We ate here three nights in a row and always something different, and excellent service.

I went for an early lunch at Applebees with five family members on Saturday, June 29th. I've had good experiences at most Applebees I have visited over many years of my life. The major turn off here was the hostess who greeted us and sat us at our table. It was impossible not to notice her hot pink thong as... More

Applebee's are at least consistent wherever you go. This one is central in Hornell at a Walmart shopping center. It is open late and you can't be disappointed with the service or food quality.

We had dinner here and the restaurant was very busy. We were seated within 5 minutes and the service was very good. The food came as ordered and was hot. Enjoyed our meal and would surely visit again when in the area.

Food is crap. Servers try, but management is arrogant and aloof. It's just a step about a drive thru fast food stop. The Painted Post location is far more friendly and efficiently run
