In West Lafayette, Applebee's is a go-to place after ball games, etc. 10 minutes from the Purdue campus and central of WL and Harrison, it is easy to get to for fast food and nice environment. Standard Applebee's fare and the service is above average.

We gave this Applebee's another try and was pleased. We came early on a Friday evening and had very good food, good service and a pleasant decor. My grilled chicken and shrimp was juicy, hot, and flavorful. The potatoes were well cooked and mildly seasoned with herbs. My partner finished her half rack of ribs and then we stayed for... More

When we first arrived the location wasn't busy and were seated right away. That was the only plus of this visit. We order 6 appetizer and only 3 of them were correct. Sorry but that isn't a very good odds. There wasn't an apology or even an offer to lower our bill for all the extra waiting and that the... More

While our waitress was attentive and sweet (and, she deserved more than he 25% tip we gave her), the meal itself was rather humdrum. We were seated in the same booth and the outside scenery was the same, more or less. Not bad. A beautiful blue sky is beautiful and the white puffiness of sunshine brightened clouds are always amazing... More

If you've seen an Irish Pub or sports bar you had a good idea of what you can expect from an Applebee's restaurant. We've had better service on prior visits. In order to be served more quickly on a Friday evening, we sat at the bar area. The waitress brought menus took our drink order and gave us extra time... More

We like their 2 for $25 deal, and this time, my husband upgraded to the larger steak for $3 more. The service was good, the food delicious, and we were full when we left.

Standard Applebee's fare. This location is usually fairly busy because there are only a handful of sit down restaurants in this area.

We ordered the 2 meals for $20. The appetizer, boneless wings, was excellent and the ranch dip was an excellent accompaniment. I ordered the lemon chicken with rice. Chicken was very good but I had to return the rice which was not only tasteless but definitely undercooked - our waitress was gracious, apologized and brought me another serving but still... More

Applebees is supposed to be a grill restaurant. Yet, multiple times when I have ordered a rare steak, it has come very over cook (I would struggle to even describe it as medium). If an American grill can't even get such as simple dish right, then something has gone very wrong. Service is good and the deserts are good (but... More
