“Pretty consistent dining experience”
Review of Applebee's

Applebee's
Ranked #14 of 46 Restaurants in Pella

While I won't act line Applebee's is a fine dining experience, what you will get here is a pretty consistent dining experience. The menu has lots of options, food is usually prepared as expected, the staff is usually friendly, and the wait time is pretty typical. If you read enough reviews you may find someone with a different experience, but overall your experience should likely be a good one.

The place was busy, not many places in Pella serve beer, and it is close to the Lake. It is one of those places that would do in pinch, maybe.

We purchased a 2 for $20 and ordered the steak on both meals. We asked if we could have a salad as one of the sides and was told yes. Later in reviewing the bill we were charged $3.75 additional for the salad. Steak was not good quality and left 1/2 of it on our plate. Don't include steak on the 2 for $20 menu if it can't be good.

I don't know if it was just a bad Saturday night but we had a bad experience here. The food took 45 minutes to come out and the waitress didn't provide an update until about 5 minutes before the food came out. Others who came in after were served before us. Then when the food did come out I saw them drop the ranch and honey mustard on the floor and continued out with the food and didn't replace the ranch and honey mustard. Because the waitress doesn't bring out the food she didn't know the issue and the person who dropped the ranch and honey mustard went back and cleaned it up but didn't replace. Also they put this little machine on the table and I punched a couple of buttons and then was charged for playing a game. There isn't any warning that there is a charge for this game they place on your table. The portions were light on the shrimp stir fry I had. Rather than complain we left as soon as we finished.

We were in Pella with 5 boys and we all could find something on the menu we wanted. Sometimes it's a hard choice but it will all be good.
