This was not the best experience I have had at Applebee's. Our waiter was not very knowledgeable or friendly. Also, not very attentive. Food was ok. Also, not the best.

Applebees is a good "go to" spot. We have most often had a good meal there. I do wish they would quit changing their menu and the most recent changes made have made us lessen our trips there. The good "basic" items of their menu seem to have disappeared for more unique and not as good choices.

We waited 45 minutes for our food after we placed the order. I believe our order wasn't entered until we asked someone to check on our order. My drink was empty and not refilled. You have many choices in Topeka... Applebee's is now my last choice. In fact I won't go back to the Applebee's in Topeka.

This is one of the closest places to the hotel. We walked there a few times. The bar staff was friendly and accommodating. A/C was not cooling well and place had a strange odor.

When we arrived we asked for a quiet table or booth off to the side so we could visit, but instead were seated right in the middle of the larger room. I then repeated my request and we had to wait for a table to be cleared but were seated in a much quieter section. Our server arrived and I... More

We enjoyed our selections. Enjoyed having chips and artichoke dip before our meal. One of us ordered the steak and it was very good. The other a pasta dish and it was good as well. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent. Service was fine. Nothing fantastic but adequate. No issues. Did notice that there was some sort of issue with... More

I ordered the grilled bone-in pork chop with grilled vegetables and the maple/pecan mashed sweet potatoes. As you can see from the photo, the grilled vegetables consisted of two pieces of barely cooked squash and five pieces of red pepper. I expected different after looking at the pictures on the menu. The sweet potatoes were cool, not even warm, almost... More

I have visited this location of Applebee's three times in the past two months, and it will be a very long time before I go back. All three experiences have been just terrible. In early January, I took my teen daughter to meet with her grandmother at Applebee's for an early lunch on a Saturday. The place was near deserted,... More
