It's hard to watch what you eat when they are now charging extra for a salad with your meal! Last year we learned that they did away with Italian, and French salad dressing. We discovered hot bacon dressing. Very, very good. We don't go out often and recently we went there and now no bacon salad dressing. People return to... More

Our waitress was Lisa and she was very good. She remembered our order without writing it down. Food was good,. Mashed potatoes were very tasty.

The food was good and plentiful. Most of the customers were young, and although it was a work day, none seemed to be in a hurry to get back to work, so it was a pretty relaxed atmosphere. Wait staff was courteous and efficient. My son loves the place!

Not impressed with the server or management. I needed a drink (something fierce) so I hit the call waitress button on the little box thingy. The waitress came and got the drink and that was it. Than the manager came over and asked if we needed something, we said no. And she's like "well you hit the page button". I... More

We had a opportunity to dine here on a Friday early evening and we were seated quickly. The staff was polite and very friendly. The atmosphere is nice but the noise level is high. The food was very good. We had the ribs with heavily seasoned fries. Ask for no seasoning if you do not like salt and pepper on... More

We visited Applebee's in Lancaster after seeing the lights at the Columbus Zoo on New Year's Eve. They were open until 2 a.m. and we had a wonderful waitress named Misty. She was cordial and fun and did a very good job serving us keeping drinks coming. She even mentioned ways we could save money on our meals. We arrived... More

The ribs were terrible to say the least, tough as leather and told the waitress and her response " oh I'm sorry, we have a new cook " she offered to bring more ribs and I said " Noooo " We split my meal which was a burger and fries (mediocre) and told her to just take the ribs off... More

Not happy with there new menu. Order a nacho for $10. Not with it. Small and not very good. They took things away from the soup and salad menu again. They need to bring back there bigger list of salads. Exp. the pecan crusted chicken salad.
