Saturday Night Dinner

Very good service for a busy Saturday night. Food was good and service was great. Did not have to wait very long. Server came right over for our drink order and gave us the right amount of time to get our order ready. Love that they have the gaming stations at the tables, it kept my kids occupied... read more

It was close and quick, did the job for takeout. They forgot to put the sauce on one of our dishes. The restaurant was within walking distance to the waterpark, which was nice.

Applebee's in Sandusky is open later than just about all the other restaurants in the area. Good food and a great family atmosphere. Check out The Hive/patio bar. Serving staff is the best...Christine behind the bar is exceptional!

Well we had stayed away from our old favorite in Elyria Applebees after 3 bad experiences but we decided to try it in Sandusky today. We were pleasantly surprised and loved our meals, service etc. Spoke to the manager and he encouraged us to retry our Applebees in Elyria since managers have changed so we may just do that..

My wife doesn't like Applebees, but insisted we go there anyway despite my urging otherwise. My wife proceeded to take FOREVER to order while our 3 and 5 year old grew restless. For this trip I give my wife a 1\5, as she really made things difficult, and I wasn't rewarded in any way for my patience and awesome husband\dad... More

Friendly waitstaff. Got a table in a timely fashion, despite a family of 6, and a busy time of evening. Great family friendly pub-grub style of food. Menu has something for everyone.

Late at night, in a snowstorm, we found this Applebee's slower in business than usual for an Applebee's. Good service, fully explained menu items by the waiter. Enjoyed the Pub Grub chicken item with quinoa. Music in the background was more mellow than others. Good food, good service.

I've eaten Applebee's almost everywhere. The service here was okay. I've had better. Other than that, it was like a typical Applebee's.

There were 5 of us and they treated us very well. The food was served hot and pretty quickly. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and we had a fun time.
