Pretty Good Food

Most things I have had at Applebees were pretty good, Service is fine. Portions are relatively small.

The food at this Applebee's in Spearfish, SD is always very good. We are in Spearfish annually for meeting and we always stop here to eat.

Wonderful support for veterans. Food was tasty, arrived quickly and the wait staff friendly and efficient. The Oriental Chicken Salad is my favorite while others really like the Cowboy burger.

My wife and I decided to dine here since it was located just off I-90 exit. There were only 7 or 8 tables occupied and we were seated immediately. The waitress promptly came and I ordered a beer and a ice tea for the wife and a order of beer cheese and pretzels which we had tried before. They are... More

Stopped in with some friends for a few beers and some dinner. They were on a edit so we ate dinner at the bar. Bar service was friendly and efficient. Manager stopped in and checked on us too. Beer was cold and the wings were hot. Thanks for a good time

This location always serves tasty, quality food and the service is good. However, there seems to be a problem with the kitchen getting too busy so they will not seat guests despite having open tables. We were there on a Sunday at 11:25 -- 25 minutes after they opened.

We were seated on a single bench type seat with a narrow table facing the bar - a little too close to the diners and servers walking past. Server... More

Always receive great service friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices. If your traveling hotels and Walmart within walking distance, large parking area right off the interstate.

I was never a fan of Applebee's, but this location is a definite exception! Our group was in Spearfish for the Sturgis Rally and made it a point to eat here on 3 occasions. Staff was friendly and accommodating, food was very good, plank cooked Salmon was exceptional, and the beer was cold!

Out of 4 of us 3 had a nice meal. Although 1 had ordered the BBQ Ribs. Suppose to be so good. Maybe it was a bad day for ribs. But my husband couldn't eat them, he said tasted like shoe leather. the rest was good

Thank crkrie
