“Not the usual Applebee's & not in a good way”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have been in many Applebbes across the nation and other then the great waitress, it doesn't measure up. The steaks are not that flavorable, no seasonings on them, just dull and chewey. We never just try a restaurant once & make the decision on one visit, but after several more tries. No more. Will go to Red Lobster next door the next time in that area.

“Ok Place”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We go there every so often. The food is fair but always have a spicy hispanic addition to all it's food. I really do not like peppers and such in every food on the menu.

“Great place to dine after the Midvale Speedway race”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Located next to the mall and a couple of miles from Midvale Speedway. Clean, friendly staff, convenient on/off exit. Depending upon the time of the day, the physical location of the property makes you either very cold or very hot if sitting next to the window. It's just how the sun shines into the building, but the HVAC system is not set up to control an even temperature throughout the building. I suggest requesting a seat in the middle of the restaurant away from the windows. Also, Sunday at lunchtime is crowded.

“I love Applebee's!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

I love Applebee's Restaurants. I have never had a bad meal at any of them and the service is usually very good. The New Philadelphia Restaurant just received a renovation and is very "up-to-date" but shows pictures from local sports and areas as well as our favorite OSU teams. It's a very fun atmosphere with excellent service and food. Want a fun night out, visit Applebee's!

“Very good food, however, waiting in line is not my idea of "fun" !”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

When busy, the "waiting area" is outside. Not a good idea after the first of November!
