The food was excellent. The location is convenient. The restaurant was the typical set-up as other Applebee's. An for the undercover owner to work with staff. Many positive moments and a few opportunities for staff learning.

Very pleasant staff. Our waitress was very personable. My steak was not prepared as I ordered but they did take it back and cook it a little more for me and brought me fresh French fries as mine were soggy from the undercooked steak. In the end, it was all very good and taken care of very efficiently.

We stopped here for a meal on our way back from doing the nearby Amish Experience. Our meal was served quickly and the Mac and Cheese with bacon bits is definitely one to try! A nice selection on the menu with something for everyone. Friendly staff, plenty of seating and a nice atmosphere.

My wife and I wanted a light dinner. The Chicken Caeser Salad was perfect and quick. The waitress was very helpful also.

When we travel, we like to go to familiar places. I would say this is not one of the better Applebee's we have been to this year. Applebee's has a habit of changing menus and taking off the stuff that was good. We tried some new lower calorie steak dish which had good flavor but I would probably not order... More

We used to do the dinner for 2 with regularity but the steaks just didn't quite make the grade. They were improved but not as good as a few other places comparatively priced.

My wife and I recently visited Lancaster, Pa. to attend the AMT for their Masters of Illusion show and before getting checked in at our B&B we elected to try Applebee's for lunch. Good choice : ). One of the nice things about Applebee's is their menu choices. Something for everyone and their prices are affordable too. The wait staff... More

I use to LOVE eating here, but it seems things have declined for this restaurant chain as a whole. Today, my friend and I ordered the 2 for $20. Our appetizer was the Spinach and Artichoke Dip...YUCK! The chips were stale and the dip tasted NASTY. I ordered the Fiesta Lime Chicken, the chicken tasted good but the rice was... More

Attention to detail is non existent concept in every area of this restaurant. It started with dirty eating utensils and continued downhill from there. It only takes a second for your server to glance at the knives and forks to see if food is encrusted on them prior to placing them at your table for your dining pleasure. Our server... More
