If I could give a 0 stars I would. WOW! Couldn't even get a server to greet us. 2 or 3 walked by and didn't say a word. Called there after leaving and the manger said he already talked to the server for that section. Well how did he do that if he didn't even hear what happened from the... More

Been here a few times only because not many places to eat in spearfish. The last time we visited the service was slow and my soup was cold. I sent the soup back because like most people I want my soup hot. The manager came over and told me the soup was hot when it left the kitchen. Am I... More

When we went here we were seated promptly and had great service. Everything was cooked to our liking. The interior offered a friendly and warm atmosphere. I had the Butchers Reserve Steak which is offered in three sizes which is to my liking so I get the size that fits me, my wife had the grilled chicken with a salad.... More

We did not book and went to Applebee's very much on speck. We were met by a very friendly young lady who informed us that they were busy but she could fit us in on the tall seats. We were not too sure what she meant but we were sitting at bar level but about 10 feet from the bar... More

I hate Applebee's. But I had to eat here. And I didn't die. In fact, my life was prolonged via the nourishment. And, if pressed (which I will do myself for the sake of this review) I will admit that my lunch was good. Ok, very good. Firstly, had both doors opened for us by staff, warm welcome by three...

Shrimp was good but French onion soup lacked normal quality. Steak entree was fine. Although waitress stopped by, did not always pick up finished plates/etc. Choices on menu could be more varied (too much burger; too little fish; etc).

The food was good. The service was not though. The waitress was pushy about our order and completely forgot our drinks. Didn't stop by once to see if we needed anything or wanted dessert. She just dropped off the check then walked away. I'm glad there was an ice cream place in town.
