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

Sat at the bar with a lot of "townies". Friendly atmosphere and attentive server. Sometimes when I travel I try the local favorite but this felt like a local hangout. Good steak and cold beer.

Stopped back into Applebee's following their recent re-do and it has improved greatly. Much lighter and brought into the 2000s rather than the '70s decor before. Menu has expanded into more interesting fare so way to go Applebee's!

This last visit was very disappointing. The service was okay but our meals were both very greasy and unappetizing. Not sure we will return.
