We were seated at our table, the hostess did not bring with her napkins and silverware. We had to ask for napkins and silverware three times and all three times they took them to the wrong table. Our table server took our drink and food order. He was not the one to bring out our food, the restaurant was not... More

Applebee's was near our hotel, so my husband and I went there for dinner on our way to visit family for the holidays. After being seated, the waitress came by and asked for our drink order. When asked what kind of wines and draft beers they served, she tried to recall from memory rather than refer us to the bar... More

Worst dinner I've had at an Applebee's.... I'm not sure if the air conditioner was broken or what but we were sweating sitting at our table. I feel sorry for the servers on that point.... The BBQ sauce tasted sour on our boneless wings and the pico de gallo with our entrees tasted like vinegar..... We watched the servers in... More

Sometimes you are too tired to be adventurous and you just want to grab something at a familiar restaurant. Tonight was one of those nights. The restaurant was clean, not too crowded, and we were seated immediately. The server was polite and quickly took and brought our order. The food was fine and was served quickly. Sometimes it is nice... More

It's a chain restaurant, but one of the better ones. I've never been disappointed, and it usually has a good crowd.

A good place to meet friends for lunch or dinner. You can get a good meal and an adult beverage or two. Such diversity on the menu - can always find something to eat. Efficient service and never had a bad meal in the many times I have been to Applebee's.

On a business trip to meet with some folks at the state capital I stopped here for lunch with 2 colleagues. The place was packed. Lunch hour sure got a lot of people in there. As soon as we walked in we were seated at a very odd shaped table. The place also smelled a little moldy or as is... More

A short walk across the hiway from Hampton Inn. I ordered Tortillia soup with a beef ribs appetizer. When waitress brought the ribs, she noted that the soup needed to be made from scratch and would take a while. When it came, she brought along a full rib dinner to make up for the wait. Nice gesture.

Great place, great food. The service was amazing and food was perfect! Would have given 5 stars but the radio was way to loud.

We really enjoyed our lunch at the Frankfort location. They have an extensive selection of gluten free menu choices and were very accommodating. They have a lot of great special deals like 2 for 20, kids eat for 99 cents on Wednesdays, lunch specials, etc.
