The only time I eat at Applebee's is when I travel to the Cleveland area to visit my mom. I always get the grilled chicken oriental salad and it never disappoints. What prompted this review was the stellar, pleasant service we received this last visit. Our female server was so sweet and friendly and the drinks were generous, too!

About 3 months ago we had terrible service and our food was first wrong and then my husband's fish was hot but french fries were cold. My dish was terrible spicy after being told it would not be. About a month later we gave it another try and the same thing happened and we noticed our old manager was gone.... More

We waited 15 minutes after being seated to have our drink order taken. The only thing that saved this from being 1 star is that our waitress did what she could to fix the kitchen's inneptitude.

Can't remember the last time I had a good meal at Applebee's; guess I am a sucker, went for a carry out a few weeks ago and my complete dinner ended up in the trash can. The steak was inedible, couldn't even cut it with a steak knife. Great location for a good restaurant.

I was on business for 3 1/2 wks in Elyria. I went to this restaurant 2-3 times a week. The bartenders remembered me each time, let alone my preferd beverage and meal. Keep up the good work.

Service was poor, food was poorly prepared and there were missing ingredients. Having eaten in many Applebee's, this one was not living up to standard expectations.

This was as good as any Applebees. The waiter was very good. The only thing that concerned me is that they had a sign up saying that firearms are not allowed in the restaurant!

Food was good, which is the typical Applebee's fare. Service was ok, waitress seemed to be distracted or disinterested.

We would not go out of our way to eat here, but enjoy it when we go. Service is always adequate and food selection is a typical Applebee's. We just think it is on par with the other Applebee's we have been to, nice but nothing fantastic about it.
