I normally really enjoy Applebees but had a very disappointing visit. Server forgot to put some of our order in, after 20 minutes came and blamed it on the computer system "not my fault," food came almost 45 minutes after ordering, no apology, no free dessert or appy to apologize. Need to do better!

'Been visiting this Applebee's for the last few years. The food is usually decent and the wait-staff is attentive. It can get noisy with the after-work crowd and during FUS weekends. But all-in all, you can be assured a decent meal that is pretty much touch the "standard" Applebee's fare.

It seems the Applebee chain has been making decisions to cut costs and quality is affected. Not this Applebee' s fault. Still a fun atmosphere, always busy. If Mike is still tending bar, he makes a bomb long island!

This used to be the place to stop after work for the awesome happy hour and the great crowd of people. Then they took away the happy hour; now no one goes there because it's just another place and no longer special. To make things even worse, now they are agressively carding EVERYONE who orders alcohol regardless of age or... More

This place is horrible. It is newer but disgusting! Bathrooms aren't clean. There were multiple forks and napkins on the floor and were never cleaned up! Food is just typical. THERE WAS MOLD(dark) ON SALAD! They offered us nothing in return. The staff is incredibly rude. If you want to come for the bar but that is it. Never again!!... More

The food and prices are what you'd find anywhere else. My two complaints are the place is tiny. Always seems like there's a wait. The other complaint is that I ordered a 'new' item off the menu to find that they no longer served that item. Umm whys it new? Maybe they need to update their menus.

This Applebees always has a crowd. Service was quick, even for our large group. Food was much better than the average Applebees. Steubenville is a college town, and the students know where to find a good meal.

Applebee's two dinners for $20 which includes an appetizer is a great deal. We love the spinach/artichoke dip appetizer. The Oriental Chicken Salad entree was tasty. My son had the Fiesta Lime Chicken. It's not something I would ever have ordered, but I tried his and was very surprised how good it was. I ordered it the next time I... More
