Stopped in to Applebee's for dinner after driving down from the Twin Cities. The service was very good, ask for Ashlee, she spends time seeing that everything is going well. My wife had the fish and chips which have a lighter batter and the fish was tasty. She says she would order it again. On the other hand, my enchiladas... More

Came for their Monday Burger special. All burgers $6.99. We decided on the Quesadilla Burger and Blazin' Texan. The Quesadilla Burger was flavorful and fresh. The Blazin' Texan was scrumptious as well, with jalapeños, onions and of course... bacon! Would order these two again. Server was friendly and service, fast. Enjoyable time!

We had eaten here before on another road trip but the time was right on the way home from a trip to Des Moines. We are pretty critical of service these days and when we had a trainee and... More

We had a large party on Sunday, for lunch, and they were very accommodating. Our server was wonderful, and they were very attentive to us. Food is always great. We are glad you are in Pella.

This applebee's is good the service is mediocre. I will usually have clients there for lunch and are usually good on service. However the reason for average is the food preparation is average.

Above other Applebee's. 1. Great service--Our waitress was wonderful. Other staff members also refilled drinks and cleared plates. 2. Facility is in great shape. Everything looks new or in terrific shape. 3. Food--Great-We did the two for twenty. Wings, Burger, and a chicken dish. All excellent. 4. Pay at the table. I love not having to wait around for a...

Went here on a Saturday in late April, a scant 2 weeks prior to Tulip Time. While I have been here in the past and was pleased, this time I was very VERY unimpressed! I had the new Briscuit Enchiladas they are having on special. They looked great on the menu! All big and stuffed looking, but when I got... More
