Our food was great and our was wonderful to my grandson.

Applebee's has loud atmosphere but you know it will be. Robert, our waiter, really gave my grandson food that was just tailored to his tastes. My chinese salad was delicious.

I can't remember a time when I had such poor food. It seemed that it was cooked in grease and served in grease!

Food is always cold, service is always slow. Not sure why I ever eat here. My steak and shrimp were served to me at what felt like room temperature. Servers always seem like they are overwhelmed. We had to keep asking for our server to come back. We sat with empty glasses a lot. If you are looking for a... More

My wife and I visited Friday evening. It was what I expected, I enjoy going there. The service is typically good and it was this evening. I was disappointed in the All in burger I ordered, it's not something I'll get again. That being said it won't keep me from coming back.

The services was great. I had the fried shrimp. It was good. My husband got the steak ordered it MR it cane back more like MW. This was the 2nd steak he had there and it was the same. Seems like they just can't cook a steak right.

The food is average and about what you expect at a chain restaurant but they are fast and the service is always friendly!

I don't have high expectations of Applebee's, but after three attempts at an enjoyable experience at this particular one, I've given up. I guess I have one positive thing to say ... occasionally the servers are friendly, if forgetful and not very attentive. You may have to ask for silverware or napkins more than once. You and your friends will... More

Got such bad service. Who cared how the food tested by the time we got it. Took almost 10 minutes brfore we were greeted. Another 20 minutes before we were asked about beverages. A total of an hour before the main entry was set before us.

We stopped at this applebee's on the spur of the moment during a business trip. We had their Tomato basil soup and a salad. There is another place in Columbus we go to whenever we are there because of the tomato basil soup being so good. But, applebee's is every bit as good. the servers check back frequently to be...

I've eaten here a few times, never disappointed. There is a very good menu selection, as well as an equally good drinks selection. Always great service and just a fun place that is relaxed, with no rush to get to the next cover. Stop by, you won't be disappointed.
