Food was good as was the service, similar to most Applebees you visit. Its within walking distance of the hotels on first which is a plus.

It's only a couple of minutes walk from the Country Inn, where I was stopping, so I called in to sink a couple of beers and to grab a bar meal. Service was good, the food was better than average and not too badly priced. Really a 3-1/2 rather than a full 4 but I'd be happy to back the... More

We stopped in for a late night meal. We had been setting up at the Springfield antique show, and didn't get done until late. I chose a couple appetizers for dinner and my husband got a steak. My wonton tacos and pretzels were really good. Would definitely get the wonton tacos again. His steak was served on a sizzling hot... More

It's expensive for the quality. The service is not as good as it used to be. The menu changes all the time so when you find something that you like when you go back it's no longer available. Unfortunately it's just not what it used to be.

Had a good meal while staying in the area. Typical Applebee's menu and good food. Our waitress Tiffany did a fine job as she mentioned it was her first day working alone. Always can count on Applebee's for reliable food/service.

My daughter and I had planned to have lunch. Both restaurants we had chosen were closed. We settled for Applebee's. The atmosphere was pleasant with nice muted earthy tones and comfortable seating. The prices were easily within the range of other sit-down restaurants in the area. The food was very good and the service was great. Our server was attentive... More

We do not eat at Applebees often, but it was next to our hotel so we tried it. The menu is major different from the last time (4 years?) that we ate there. It looks more "yupppie" oriented, and the cost is even higher (to be expected today). We had the Shrimp Wonton Stirfry ($11.49), the wife said it was... More

After a busy day we just wanted to go out and relax. We walked in and was seated very quickly. The waitress was very friendly and took our order. When our dinner arrived it was hot and tasted fantastic. Would definately recommend Applebee's to anyone looking for good food and a great atmosphere.

The wait staff we had very very good. The food was fairly standard, slads were a little overdressed and three os us ordered the asain shrimp salad and realized halfway through we all didn't get the edamame as it should have. No big deal and they did take a little off the bill for it.
