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.

The ribs were terrible to say the least, tough as leather and told the waitress and her response " oh I'm sorry, we have a new cook " she offered to bring more ribs and I said " Noooo " We split my meal which was a burger and fries (mediocre) and told her to just take the ribs off... More

Not happy with there new menu. Order a nacho for $10. Not with it. Small and not very good. They took things away from the soup and salad menu again. They need to bring back there bigger list of salads. Exp. the pecan crusted chicken salad.

Last time we went here it took 2 hours for our appetizers to come out ! Then our food came out right after and most of it was cold and some of it wasn't even cooked all the way through! Worst experience ever. We had 10 people in our group. All family including two 1year olds. We won't be going... More

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
