Service has always been good. The food has been hit and miss. Sometimes it's amazing and other times it's been not so good.

Usually it's not to bad but today we had to ask for utensils and napkins. Not very many people in the establishment and service was slow. It'll be awhile before I come back.

We went for supper to Applebee's in Columbus NE in late January of 2017. The restaurant was clean and attractive. The food was excellent and the service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
