Good deal on Burgers

The wait staff was super nice and we happened upon a day where all burgers were $5! Very yummy food, especially for the price!

This is a nice clean place to take the kids to eat. Even just to take a date. Staff are very polite and very friendly. They are always asking if you are okay and if you need anything else. It is very open and very clean. Even the bathrooms are very clean.

Stopped here on our way home from Put-in-bay. Fast service and our waitress Rachelle R. was friendly and attentive. Definitely an asset to this restaurant.

We decided to eat here, because it was close to the hotel we stayed at. The restaurant was packed so they asked if we wanted to stay in the added on addition to the building, which was fantastic. The service was great, and the food was delicious as well. They had corn hole boards set up outside, which was cool... More

Well the food was great lori our waitress was super friendly and on top of things! The worst thing was watching a waitress who was on shift kiss her boyfriend or husband. I felt like that was disturbing. Everytime the manager walked by she acted like she was busy and then right back sitting with him. Im sorry but i... More

Applebees was conveniently located right next to our hotel (Sleep Inn), and after a long day at Cedar Point, it was worth it not to have to drive anywhere else. The food was good, the restaurant was clean and the service was excellent. Prices seemed to be higher than the Applebees back home, but this is a tourist town, so... More
