I've been here maybe a half dozen times in the last 11 years and always leave wondering WHY did I give it another chance!? Last time I got the sirloin. It was disgusting. Is there such a thing as artificial beef? I don't believe I will ever go back.

I'm going to say overall it was a good visit, since there isn't a rating between average & very good. We were seated quickly when we visited for dinner shortly after 5:00 on a Friday, just missing the 1/2 price appetizers that run from 3-5 & 9 - close, but that was ok. We started with 4.00 margaritas. They were... More

Just wanted a fast salad. Was getting it to go, but I ended up eating it there. The bartender was very busy. A lot of the staff was sitting at a table right next to the bar, making a lot of noise. The manager was hanging out with them, and it was loud enough to distract from the meal. The... More

This place was poorly run and it has to be the managment. We cam e with a group of 10 and the service was lousy and slow. One person in the group had to send his food back twice because it was prepared wrong. Save your money and go to another restaurant!

We had been given a gift card for Applebee's. We decided to use it at the columbus restaurant. After 45 minutes of waiting for our food I asked our waitress to check on our food. She eventually came back and said it would be coming. It never came. I asked the manager to check and he never came back .... More

The restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly. We had a very large group. We split up into four tables. Our orders were all taken in a prompt manner and the food was served timely. The orders were all correct as ordered. The waitress was very patient and friendly.

The Columbus, Indiana Applebees is absolutely a neighborhood in which I'd live or visit! We had not been to this Applebees in some time, as we live a bit away from an Applebees and had come to think of this restaurant as a bit "cookie cutter" in recent years. The updated menu and greater breadth of options on the menu,... More

I always enjoy the different types of salads on the menu. Every time I go I pick a new one offered. They always have great appetizers that can be shared with your mate.

A great selection, in a warm friendly atmosphere. Settle back, have a beer, watch your favorite game on TV and fill your empy stomach.
