you never know how the food is going to be. Sometimes good sometimes not. They do change the menu but not always the best quality.

Dinner just was mediocre, I guess for $90 for 4, I expected better. Restaurant was dirty and the table was greasy. Just needed a good cleaning. Food was burned and also greasy. Felt more like a dive bar instead of a chain restaurant. Will try...More

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.

We stopped for a quick lunch and it was very good. We were seated right by the door so I didn't care for that but didn't want to complain so we made it work. I had the shrimp thai salad & it was very good....More

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.
