I had an early supper here and arrived around 5pm. Not busy at all. It took a little longer for my server but once she took my order, she was very attentive. After I paid she offered to send me away with sweet tea in a To Go cup and I happily accepted. Love that sweet tea. My dinner was... More

We have had good and lousy meals at this restaurant. Somehow always get a new server who fails to give good service. Changes in menu not to my liking.

I think they have great food. The only problem I have is the service. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's not. Recently, my wife and I went with group (total of 7 people) on a Sunday after church. It took about 45 minutes to get our food. We were told our waitress was new, but it took forever (and the...

would go here more often but they're beer prices are way to high. Food is average. I do though very much appreciate how they honor Vets with a free meal on Veterans day. While I feel there are better places to eat in town, if your in one of the close by motels it will certainly do.

We have gone to Applebee's in Lancaster on and off for over 10 yrs and never quite sure what to expect - unfortunately no consistency with this location? weather its the food quality or management or staff - it seem to be under new management at this time and is a little better this time we visited. Still needs work... More

Very good, signed up for Carside and ordering on line - very detailed - right down to do you want a dessert! Steak cooked perfectly, shrimp excellent, salad perfect, service for this carside was wonderful. Only thing I would know for next time is to remember where to ask to say no bacon the salad - but everything else wonderful... More

The food is average at best. I had the grilled pork chop. It was seasoned fine, unfortunately it was overcooked. In addition I had the broccoli and fries. Both were good. My wife had the southwestern bean soup. She loved it! The atmosphere was comfortable and welcoming. The reason I gave it four stars was because of the service. Our... More

Food is nothing special compared to other Applebees, but the service is just plain terrible. We had to wait for plates and cutlery for 10 minutes after the food had already arrived!

My family and I ate here June 15 2016. Applebee's has done it again. Just as soon as they get a decent menu for me and my family they change it. No riblets! Why? The service was a little faster than I am used to at Applebee's my whole family just felt as though the food was not on par... More
