Overall, our experience was what one would expect at an Applebees. The place does have a funny smell. It smells like "old carpeting" or something. However, the food was what you would expect at an Applebees. The service was ok, even though they admitted they were short staff. I do think they need new carpeting and possibly new furniture.

I moved here in 2015 from out of state. I had really loved Applebee's in my other state. I tried the Applebee's in Neenah and it was outstanding. When I attended the Applebee's in Oshkosh I received my dinner and discovered it was a warmed up leftover. I am not stupid. I can tell if a dish is a leftover... More

We were seated at a tabe for 10 mnutes. A waiter stopped at the table next to us picked up his tip gave us eye contact and did not return. After 3 more minutes he came back and waited on a table that had just been seated, that was it, we left. We went to Olive Garden it was wonderful,... More

Managment? They gave ONE NEW server to take care of 18 ladies over 75. Really? Food: Over half of the hot food wasn't. They have cut expeses by cuting the quality of ingredents of dishes. Very LONG wait for food. We did have reservations. They knew we were coming.

I have been here several times and have never had a good experience. Food is quick and tasty like any Applebee's but the wait staff is slow to take your order, refill drinks and give you your check. I usually use the touch pads to pay but they don't work at this location and neither does the wifi.

Stopped by the Oshkosh Applebees location, just wanted a to go order to take back to my hotel room. I ordered a beer and the hot buffalo wings, and regretfully paid right away. The bartender came back saying that they did not have Bufflalo sauce, and she offered me 4 other sauces, all sweet. I politely declined, and was informed... More

I met an old friend here for lunch. The staff was great about letting us take our time. My only negative was that the $8 lunch portion was very small. I expected a bit more.

We stopped by for dinner and my wife has a garlic allergy. Our waitress went out of her way to ensure her choice was garlic free. The items were limited regarding that on the 2 for $20 menu. So the manager stepped forward and offered anything on the menu free of garlic. Both our meals were very good. The service... More

Visiting Oshkosh for the annual air show. Our experiences with the chain overall have been mixed. This was one of the lesser variety. Husband ordered ribs. They were all dried out -- seemed like re- heated leftovers. Rest of our meals were OK. Service a little slow and haphazard. Should not have to beg for refills on beverages.

Have eaten here many times but this visit was a bummer. The Caesar salads had NO dressing just dry lettuce,cheese, and croutons. My steak was well done, not medium as ordered and the meat had no flavor. My friend's chicken was inedible. The only bright spot was our waitress, Haley. They need to clean up their act!😞
