There are lots of places to eat that hire good people to serve, but this isn't one of them. Our server on this visit got our order wrong twice and didn't seem to care.

They offer a free veteran's day meal. Our food was excellent. Very fast service, fast seating. They asked us to stand and say the pledge,and a employee sang our national anthem. I thought that was outstanding.

I went there on a Sunday, with a girlfriend and the service was really bad. The waiter did not check on us once after we placed our order, other servers brought out our food. It took our waiter 20 min to take our check and ring it up. I was watching him and it looked like he did not know... More

I have been living in Owensboro Kentucky for 3 months and I have frequented Applebee's almost every week mostly on a Sunday evening. The staff has made it the most friendliest establishments to visit. I would like to extend my biggest thanks to all whom I have got to know including Randall, Will and Sonya.

Been a while since I was there but boy am I glad I went with my girlfriend and we got Will as our server. Because we hadn't been together for a while, we played catchup for at least 4hrs. He never made us feel rushed or annoyed. He gave us recommendations and ways to get more bang for our buck.Food... More

Applebee's is not one of the family's choice locations, but I always go anytime someone has given me a gift card. We went on June 15, 2016 and the food and service was about what we would expect from this restaurant - average. It wasn't bad, but it didn't impress us enough to want to come back any time soon.

Service and food are excellent. We go for the healthy menu due to diet restrictions. The food is very good and the portions are quite ample,

Spouse and I eat here frequently. We each have our favorite selections from the menu. One is French Onion soup. We only know of one other place in town that serves it.

Average at best. Was there with another couple food was served hot but was bland. Bourbon street steak was sizzling on the tater with mushrooms and onions, however had to be buried in A1 to have flavor. 4 cheese macaroni with chicken tasted as though someone had dropped sugar on it. Way too sweet for what should've been a great... More
