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.

We stopped for a quick lunch and it was very good. We were seated right by the door so I didn't care for that but didn't want to complain so we made it work. I had the shrimp thai salad & it was very good. My husband had the bacon chicken wrap & he said it was very good.

Been here several times, only because my small town doesnt offer much. Food ok, but it's always something! Either food is cold, over cooked, or something.

Wow, the food is just terrible here. Over cooked and old food... And the cooking isn't great either. When you can get better food at a fast food restaurant... I just can't.

We were staying overnight in town and needed to eat dinner somewhere. Unfortunately we choice this place. Again at an Applebee's - poor food & so so service! Took forever to get our meal and the place wasn't that busy. I ordered the Pork Chop figuring they couldn't screw up a pork chop, Well it was one of the most... More

This place has everything you could want. The fun changing every Six to eight weeks let you try to dabble in different things.

Several of us went to Applebee's for dinner. It was busy and since we were a large group, we had to wait about 20 minutes to get tables to accommodate everyone. The waitress was great, the food was very good. We enjoyed it.

It's Applebee's. They make consistently good food and when you're traveling if you're not sure about a local place (or those places aren't open for lunch, this is a safe reliable option.
