We ate at our local Applebee's tonight and had a great meal. The service was as expected and the price was hard to beat. Food came out hot and on time, and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. However, the entrance to the parking lot has somewhat of an engineering flaw. The owners have placed a large boulder at... More

Our family stopped at this Applebee's in the past, and we had good food ... but nothing out of the ordinary. Quite honestly, we were not impressed and opted to "skip 'em" for awhile. Well, we returned this past weekend and experienced much better service, food, and atmosphere. The waitress, Jena, did a great job of greeting us and providing... More

Friendly greeting. Seated immediately. Then downhill. No one waited on table. Waited and waited. Manager walked by us twice. Advised bar tender and greeter of lack of service. After 15 minutes,we left.

Yup, if you are familiar with and like Applebees, this one is fine and centrally located. Good food, good service. My steak was delicious.

I decided to change up and eat a meal here. The food was fine and the service was good but while the price for my meal cost less than Chili's, I still prefer Chili's overall.

We arrived late to Rapid City on a Sunday night. This restaurant was not our first choice but it was close to our hotel and the other nearby restaurants all had long waits. My wife had the chicken tenders and I had a simple cheese burger. Both were decent, although my fries were luke-warm at best. Our server promptly ordered... More

We came in on a Friday night around 9:00 Not busy, but staff seemed to act off duty. Food came out just warm and had to ask them to microwave it. We typically like Applebees but this location during our travel was not to typical standard.

We found this little gem while on holidays in South Dakota. Food is amazing. Lots of choices for those of us who are gluten free. Meals were hot, tasty, and service excellent. I highly recommend the cedar baked chicken with green apple relish and quinoa, and the cedar baked salmon with two sides. The sweet potato with pecans is to... More
