Nice place for lunch and dinner. The staff are friendly and will go out of their way to help you. My wife and I eat there 2x's a week. Never disappointed with the food and service.

So when my wife and I travel we have a rule of not eating in chain restaurants. But frankly, there aren't a lot of dining options in West Leb and we found ourselves there on a rainy, miserable night. Applebee's was just down the street from our hotel and we didn't have to turn across traffic to get to it so we pulled in. We were greeted promptly and taken to a nice booth. The young lady who waited on us was pleasant and much more articulate than most teenagers. On the menu is a page of "2 for $20" which includes an appetizer and two entrees. The price worried me a little but the waitress recommended this option and we went for it. We ordered boneless wings for an app and they were excellent; more than what we wanted, though. I got a 7 oz. steak that was tasty, tender and cooked exactly the way I ordered it. It came with baked potato and nicely steamed fresh vegetables. My wife got a pasta thing with some meat or fish (I don't recall which) and she enjoyed it a lot. With two iced teas, tax and tip we ate for $32 and had a really nice meal. I have eaten in high end steakhouses where the entrees are $50 and been less satisfied than I was at this Applebees. Go figure. I don't know if we just hit it on a good night or if this is standard at this Applebees. At any rate, if we stay in West Leb again we will go back.

Stopped in on Father's day at lunch. Expected a madhouse, but customer traffic was steady not crazy. We chose to sit at the bar. Good attentive service from Cory the bartender, food came out quickly and was good. Drinks looked good but we stuck with sodas. Had the triple appetizer and two (different) chicken salads. Better experience here than at the other large chain down the road. Will be back.

It's always a wait to get a table so it's better to call ahead for reserved seating. The food is really good here -- love the Margarita's!!

been there a few times in the last couple months and the service is so bad and rude. My family refuses to go there now . Waitresses are more interested in the men that are there alone. They skimp on the food not like it was a few months ago when you actually got a meal and not a snack now. Why pay so much for a meal when they don't give you much and when you complain about it they say it is what it always has been but form someone who use to go there twice a week a few months ago I know it is not true. Trust me stay away if possible but you might get lucky and get a decent waitress that wants to do her job. The last time we went we didn't tip since the food was horrible and the waitress was rude and as we were walking out she made a comment about being cheap customers but that is as we were going out the door . My wife was going to go see a manager but he was too busy flirting with the bartender and I told her and the person at the door that we will never be back.
