The parking lot of the restaurant and my hotel were connected, so this was a very convenient location for dinner. It was a standard Applebee's with good food served hot and fresh. The food also came out very quickly despite the fact that the restaurant was close to full. The hostess and the young man who waited on us were... More

We had not been here in a while and now I know why. When we got there the guy host acted that because we wanted to sit in the bar area was terrible. So much so that he told us that the bartender was our server and might be a while. We sat there for over 10 minutes. I watched... More

This is maybe our favorite place to eat when we go to Columbia. They have great food ranging from appetizers to salads to soups and the there's the great entrees. Steaks, chicken, Shrimp, sandwiches Oh and I've been told that they have really good ribs, too. My favorite appetizer is the wonton tacos, but I love French onion soup, too... More

My family and I were staying in town for a wedding. We went to eat because it was close to the hotel and Applebee's is usually consistent. First off it took over 45 min to get our food. It was very slow. The service was slow as well. We were not impressed at all.

I have not been to an Applebee's in years as we don't have one close to us. There were lots of empty tables when we arrived late on a Tuesday night -- although we still had a wait, maybe short on staff. Waited about ten minutes. Our waitress was nice but really didn't know a lot about the dishes which... More

Fast service and a nice meal. Applebee's is almost always a safe choice when looking for a place to dine. It was close to our motel, just a short walk.

Consistently crappy service and food. I get that most of its microwaved but the service always seems to disappear for long stretches of time during our meal. Nothing to write home about and always seems to be under new management and new staff. Used to be a pretty good places 3-4 years ago now it's just another no on the... More

I was on the NutriSystem diet plan and there were only two dishes that I was allowed which was the Thai Shrimp Salad. I am off the diet plan now but that dish is so good, I still go there all the time just to get that dish.

Typical Applebees. Good food and good service. We were sat immediately and our server was great. We only had drinks and appetizers but we were very pleased.
