So, I ordered a chicken dish that was on the 2 for $20.00. It had Grilled Chicken over a Rice and Grain type Bed of rice. On top of the chicken was apples and a lemon sauce and UGHHH it was GROSS! I told my waitress, and she gladly switched it out for another dish on the 2 for $20.00.... More

We stopped by because we could walk from our hotel. The place was packed at 8PM! Didn't get it until we were asked at the door if we were Veterans. Why yes, my husband is. So we were informed of the free meal to which they were offering him for his service. Awesome. Too bad we just wanted a drink... More

A few couples decided to go out, we were fortunate to get a table and had a wonderful evening with good friends and good eats. Dessert wasn't bad either.

this undoubtedly was the WORST experience ever for an Applebees for us-we had issues with this place two years ago-tried again last year and it was better but this year it took a GIANT leap backwards-again they apparently do not know how to wipe off a bar-dirty when we sat down and we ended up cleaning it ourselves-food was cold...

While staying in Ephrata we dined at Applebee's. Excellent food and within walking distance of the hotel. Server changed midway through the evening as it was end of shift. Only to start another shift as a cleaner.

Ate dinner on a Thursday evening -- had excellent waitress who was very knowledgeable and attentive. My daughter wears braces so needs broccoli cooked soft -- done to perfection. In fact, she raved about it so much, the waitress brought her a second serving -- on the house! My ''appetizer'' salad was served in a HGE bowl (brought half home!).... More

Took over 20 mins for a burger to be made Wrong food delivered to me Server lied about reason for ice cream melting blaming it on a hot brownie that sat so long it was cold. Left an extra ice cream at the table for us while the brownie was reheated, but didn't leave any spoons resulting in a second... More

I come here a couple of times a year, when I'm in town visiting my mother - it's her favorite place! Love how courteous and helpful the staff is (mom has a walker and they patiently take good care of us). I enjoy their salads and also the steaks. Mom loves the shrimp and fries.

It was a mutually convenient place to meet. Fast service for salads and the salad was fresh. The salad was as advertised and a generous portion.

We had a great dinner at Applebee's. We had 7 adults and a toddler at our table, so we were a big group. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Our food came out very quickly and it was all delicious. It was right next door to the hotel we were staying at, so it was very convenient.
