While visiting Lancaster for a concert in December - we eat here after our show. The place was clean and the food was good. The value was nice too.

Great service came from a young lady named Michelle. I was not only impressed by the service she gave me but as time went on the bar got to the point it was full. She has an ability to converse with customers, service their needs and service the servers also in a timely and efficient manner. Through it all she... More

I loved the all you could eat salad with the side entrée. Now they've changed it so you can still get the entrée with the salad meal but you don't get unlimited salad refills and the price is still the same. I haven't been there for quite awhile since they changed it. That makes it too expensive for lunch. I... More

Chain restaurant but comfortable and well run. The two for twenty meal is a good deal. We also do take-out. Food is consistent, salads fresh and crisp.

I understand that sometimes restraunts have a rough night but we consistently have bad experiences at this particular Applebee's. We typically eat the same 5-6 menu items at different locations in the Columbus, OH area. The portions here are skimpy especially on the salads. Granted, the salad bowls are larger. However, the salad portion (not the chicken) is really small.... More

We love this place! We are never disappointed with their food or service! My husband loves their steak and their twisters with queso dip! Our 9yr old loves the steak too! My daughter and I love their mac &chz with honey pepper chicken! I love the 2 for $20 menu! I love the sweet tea!!!

I frequent this restaurant more than any other. They open at 11 so it is not a breakfast place. The menu is full of delicious items and they keep adding things to try. One complaint is that the mixed drinks are watered but I think it makes us a little safer on our drive home - I do not need... More

Was seated in a timely manner, didn't like the table the hostess wanted us to sit at and asked to sit somewhere else. She was reluctant, but did give us the booth we wanted. I thought it took a little while for the server to come but when she did she was pleasant and sorry for taking a while. By... More

My husband & I ate at this restaurant this evening. They were very busy but we got seated quickly. Our waiter, Charles was very attentive and fast. We ordered appetizers prior to our entrees. That is when the trouble started. It took quite a while for our appetizers to arrive. Once they did, our entrees were brought out 3 minutes... More
