After a full day at Busch Gardens, a friend and I stopped here for dinner on the way to our hotel for the night. I am glad they have later hours for travelers like us.

We always eat at Applebee's when traveling through Ashland. Good service, friendly people, and great choices on menu. Convenient to motel we use, and right off 95.

Many of the menu items have a pretty high salt content it seems. We ended up with a Thai shrimp salad that was about 400 calories on the light menu. It was heavy on cabbage but the shrimp was good and there was plenty to eat. I would get it again

This Applebee's was clean, the staff was polite and efficient. This is exactly what you expect from them. If you like Applebee's, do not be shy about visiting this one.

Had 9 people in our group. Waitress seemed overwhelmed. Appetizers came out with food. Not all of the food came out together. My pasta was cold like it sat there for a while. Waitress had a hard time splitting up the checks.
