Just never impressed with any Applebee's. Waiters are either stretched thin or forget you are there. They always change the menu so if you go back for something you liked it probably won't be on the menu anymore.

Usually it's not to bad but today we had to ask for utensils and napkins. Not very many people in the establishment and service was slow. It'll be awhile before I come back.

We went for supper to Applebee's in Columbus NE in late January of 2017. The restaurant was clean and attractive. The food was excellent and the service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Been here several times, only because my small town doesnt offer much. Food ok, but it's always something! Either food is cold, over cooked, or something.

Wow, the food is just terrible here. Over cooked and old food... And the cooking isn't great either. When you can get better food at a fast food restaurant... I just can't.
