We usually drive into town to eat at Gella's when passing through Hays, but this time fatigue and convenience lured us into Applebee's. It was busy on a Friday night but we were seated quickly. I asked the "host" about the interactive screen devices attached to the booth, and he told us we could order food and play games on... More

Salmon"s always a great dish. Great servers. It was a quite evening we were there. It was just across the street from our room. We were a bit exhausted after a long day, so it was good to go back and get some rest for a start on the following day .

I do like Applebee's don't get me wrong, however when you think you are going to spend $50 or less that is not the case. The severs are the best part of Applebee's they are all very professional, the food isn't to bad either. They have never messed up an order, again the price is the only hard part to... More

We received tasty food and polite service. We sat at the bar. It was a busy evening, and this restaurant appears to be a very popular choice.

This is a typical Applebee's when it comes to food quality and price, but the staff is exceptionally attentive and have a fun spirit. This restaurant is located right off of I-70 and the quality is good.
