Good food good service

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner one night. I liked both the food and the service, but why do they have to have all the fancy food. I really really really miss the old menu that they had about 12-18 months ago. Oh there still is a small section of the old menu, extremely small. But your... read more

Typical restaurant. Service was excellent and food was good. Located off Route 80 if you are travelling though Cleveland.

I ordered the Salmon & Asparagus. The dish had 2 tiny pieces of asparagus cut from the whole piece. What a disappointment. Way over priced for portion size. The shrimp Appetizer was a joke for the price. Popcorn shrimp was used...not kidding. We haven't been back. Will not recommend. Go across the street to Olive garden or chipotle for more... More

My hubby and I normally try to avoid chain restaurants but in Elyria, that is difficult to do. So we decided to give Applebee's a try again. This time we were surprised. Our server Kate was very friendly and quick. Pleasantly surprised by the new menu choices. Love the wonton tacos.

My husband ordered a steak & it came cooked wrong. The manager came by & apologized that it definitely was cooked incorrectly. They brought him a whole new dinner. Server was great.

Nice atmosphere, friendly service and tasty food......except for the broiled steak. It was a welcome stop on our trip out to Montana. By all means, stop there.
