This was just BAD! The menu has changed and now offers few to no healthy choices. My oriental chicken salad had very few ingredients and very little chicken in it. The chicken bits I that were on the salad were very small, hard and over-cooked. I couldn't eat them. I left almost the entire salad. My server didn't bother to... More

We like to view a menu that gives you dietary information which is the case here. I had one of the best salads I have ever had, the spinach w chicken salad. I eat at Applebee's often because of their menu and dependable quality. Really like the riblets!

Stopped at this Applebees enroute to Branson for lunch. Disappointing food & overall service. I like Applebees and usually find just the opposite experience. Not this time.

We stopped at this Applebee's on a recent road trip and were pleasantly surprised at the upgrade in the menu. I had the cedar grilled lemon chicken served over quinoa. The chicken was very tender and the flavors were delicious. I was also impressed by our waitress. She was courteous but mostly, she was thoughtful. We've since added Applebee's to... More

My husband and I rarely eat at national chain restaurants, preferring local places. However, we were visiting family in the area and Applebees was convenient. The environment is pretty typical with a large bar area and booths lining the walls. The menu is large with something for everyone including a myriad of "specials." There is a large alcoholic beverage menu.... More
