I gave a gift card to friends for Christmas this past December. When they went to this Olean Applebee's, they had two gift cards. Not knowing which one was which, they handed both of them to the server (Tim) at curbside. He brought the cards back and told them he had used one and the other one was still at... More

Burger was extremely fat. Staff is more of a robot than paying attention, or giving you the feeling that you're welcome... except when its time to pay and ready to get the tip. Embarrasing.. Will go somewhere else next time.

On business travel, I chose to sit at the bar for dinner. The bartender was delightful and efficient as hell! The food was good, standard Applebee's fair and I will definitely go back.

I have not been a particular fan of Applebee's but they have made some very positive menu changes and we were very pleased with the opportunity to relax, have conversation and enjoy the evening. Our server was Sarah was just GREAT. Fun to be around and attended to our every request. Good place to dine.

Heard bad things but against my better judgement, tried it out for myself because of the good bar specials. Bar was not busy. Sat down, bartender didn't greet me but asked if I wanted a menu then gave me one. No big deal. I had to ask what the special were and then proceeded to place my order, drink included.... More

My family was on the road, and we stopped in for dinner on a weekend. Sometimes, it is nice while traveling to have a little of the familiar. If you like Applebee's in general, chances are that you will like this location as well. Since it was the weekend, they were quite busy, but we didn't have to wait long... More

Tortilla soup much thicker than I have ever had at an Applebees. Wedge salad was decent. Waitress was very nice.

Atmosphere and service were very good. However, that cannot overcome the limitations in the menu. Few, if any, vegetarian options. In this day and age, a national chain should be more enlightened. We will not go here until they modernize their selections.
