Noonish on a Sunday....very busy. Sat at the bar to expedite service. The one bartender did the best he could but with mixing drinks and serving food but didn't have the things he needed readily available, i.e. ketchup, refills for tea, sweetener.....so we didn't have the best experience. Food was great.

Steaks were perfectly grilled and seasoned, and the meal was excellent. Service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere is good for a great mealtime experience, whether you wish to sit at the bar, or at a table.

My fiancé and I went out last night after he got off work so it was already pretty late. The place was just about empty and closing within the hour, but our server Tina greeted us with a warm smile and was a doll throughout the whole meal. When we were almost finished our meal, I told Tina it was... More

Love the steaks. Plenty of drinks to select from. Safe to bring the kids. Usually pretty clean and servers are mostly nice. Place can get rather busy at times as most places in Springfield are on weekends. People love to go out and eat around here. Place was remodeled a short time back and looks nicer. Most menu items are... More

First of all, I've always liked Applebee's. I've been to multiple Applebee's restaurants across the country and have had consistently good food in each one. That's one of my favorite things about chain restaurants: consistency. I had the best steak I've ever eaten at an Applebee's, so it has a special place in my heart. Just don't go in expecting...

Cute waitresses, average service, mediocre bar type food like Friday's and Chili's. There was a funky rotten smell in the building that all in our party noticed.

We thought we would give this a try but once again the building just does not seem clean. We were going here because of the commercials. Servers had shirts that needed pressed, building had an odor. Then two tables that were seated after is received their food first and one was a party of 6! Our food arrived and you... More

Went to dinner at the local Applebee's. What a shame. Started off fine, with prompt seating, and greeting by server. Drinks (all soda or iced teas) took a while to get, but they did come eventually. We decided to get an appetizer, but no server. Took a while and some staring continuously to get her to stop at our table.... More

$40.00 lunch just to much. One $5.00 drink each that was all ice. We had a shrimp salad that was more slaw than a true salad. Maybe just a bad day.
