Customer service level very poor, maybe it's the Lincoln area, since we had similar issues at a different restaurant. We saw the server 1 time, when he took the order, no knife for my dish, no communication between manager and server....overall, poor service

Josh was our server and was great. Granddaughters steak was rare, Josh sent it back to re-fire and it came back still under cooked. He sent the manager, which I'm sorry I didn't get his name, he was also great. He even offered to cook a streak himself.They made sure to compensate the mistake on our Bill and Josh also... More

Applebee's was close to our motel. Stopped in for lunch and were seated immediately. Our waiter got our drink and food order. We waited no time for our drinks and our food quickly followed. I had the lunch special bacon cheese burger with fries. Both were good. Our waiter did an excellent job coming back and checking on us.

Yummy Yummy food, and when we stayed at the Red Roof Inn, our room card allowed us $5.00 off of a $25.00 dinner order. We didn't spend that much, but they gave us a pro-rated amount.

Visited Applebees on Sept 9 at 5:19pm. Most of the tables were open and the traffic was very light. We were immediately sat but no wait staff came to our table. After 11 mins and observing wait staff addressing new guests without attention I walked up to the hostess stand to inquire if there was an assigned wait staff for... More

The nachos were good. However, waitress was in intermittent one. I finally had to find someone else in the restaurant to pay upon leaving. Was late returning back to work. Unfortunately an hour wasn't enough time there...

My wife and I dined here and had a nice meal. We both ordered burgers which arrived quickly and were very tasty. The restaurant was clean and presentable. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We will likely return for another visit someday.

Stopped in for lunch on a weekday afternoon. Ordered a bacon cheese burger and salmon. Bacon cheese burger was nearly raw on the inside and came with one and a half pieces of bacon and no bacon ranch sauce. Salmon was beyond dry. Service was extremely slow. Wont be back.
