Food was slightly above-average, tasty. Service was a little slow. Atmosphere was fun, several screens to monitor Sports events.

Stopped in for a quick lunch with the daughters who stopped in from work, we ordered for them in advance so they would not be held up, meals were slow and service was slower can't blame the help they seemed short handed, we even paid at the bar in order to speed things up, looked like our waitress was also...

We stopped in to Applebee's for a late night supper and to watch KU play basketball on one of their many TV screens. The Chicken Won-ton Tacos were THE Best, like always. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection. Our server was the best, always ask for Jay, he is The Man!

This is the worst Applebee's my dad and I have ever been to. We were driving from Minnesota to Texas and stopped at your restaurant. The quality of food was poor. The sense of urgency in your staff is lacking. It took 9 minutes before we were greeted. The table behind us waited 15+ min for their server to take... More

We have visited this Applebee's Once a year since the early 2000's. Decor is both sporty and local. Food is good, but the new garlic fries they have taste ok in my opinion. Location is off I-35 next to Comfort Inn and the Ford dealership.

I met for a late lunch. There were very few diners so the staff was a little too attentive. We had at least 5 different servers and/or managers stop at our table to ask if we needed anything or just chat. The food was a toss up; the soup was too salty and tasted a little too close to canned... More

We just wanted pie and coffee, so came off I-35 at Ottawa and discovered only non-chain restaurant closed because of a water main break and town under a boil order. We went to Applebee's because it was open. We chose two dessert items and coffee. The butter pecan blondie ala mode was very good. Service was quick (place nearly empty),... More

The staff is friendly. They get your order right or you get it free. That's right "free" if it's not right. You pay alot for dinner. Why not get what you pay for. Enjoy and have fun.

Pleasant staff but items ordered had to be "subbed" simply because the delivery truck wasn't due until Wednesday. Food quality good but could have been better.
