“Food OK, Cigarette smoke surprising”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

My husband and I stopped into Applebee's on April 15, 2012, for a late lunch. After we ordered, my husband smelled smoke. We then noticed there were 2 ladies smoking at the bar. We were shocked. In Kansas we have a state wide smoking ban. I am confused why this was allowed and even more confused why it was not clearly marked that smoking is permitted. If we had seen some signage, we would have had a beer and left happy. Instead we got to smell stinkin generic cigarettes while we ate... We will not be back as long as this is allowed.

“Typical Chain Steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Applebee's has become a typical franchise steak house. The food is so-so, the service was good, but the waitress seemed disconnected, just trying to get to the next table.
