I travel all the time and look for restaurants such as Applebee's to eat. This one is average and the staff is very aloof.

We were within walking distance from our hotel and decided to try it. We ordered steaks( since we are in Kansas) and were not disappointed. Our waiter Brandon, was very attentive to details and our steaks were perfectly cooked. We mentioned we were from out of State to celebrate our sons Birthday, which was the next day, and he had...

We stopped here for lunch prior to the busy time with a limited number of people in the restaurant when we arrived. Food was just like other Applebee's. Service was very slow. I would try somewhere else the next time.

Expectations were too high, normally a great place to dine, maybe a onetime slip in performance, we will see. Apples has the gagets to keep you busy and to pay if everyone does what they suppose todo. The food as a rule is tasty but routine, the employees just missed that down home feeling.

10pm Friday night went for dinner. Out of all the things we wanted! Hope you'll have better luck! Don't think I'll try this location again

We'd been on the road for 11 hours. We were tired, grumpy, and hungry. So we stopped in here. Our server was a lovely, perky (and not annoyingly so) woman named Jolene. She had that quality that made you feel like you were her most important table. She was attentive, and anticipated our every need. The food was good...nothing necessarily... More

Normal applebees, but did a great job getting us in and out in a hurry. Food was perfect and waitress was great.

I have ate at several Applebees throughout the US because usually they are handy to hotels and they're wait staffs are usually very good. The worst was in Visalia, California but one of the best was in a small Kansas town of Emporia. The three different meals we had were all excellent which is a miracle because my grandson is... More

A group of us had supper here. The consensus was everybody was disappointed in the food. Portion size was ok, food was bland and a few dishes were greasy. The rice on the side was dry and tasteless. Apparently the menu was the standard Applebee's list of food. The only upside was the friendly staff.

Stopped in after 9pm and had a great meal and top notch service by the waitress who was working in the bar area. The Chinese chicken salad was fresh and a very large portion.

Thank Appleweed
