I have eaten in several Applebee's across the country and I found this one to be among Applebee's best! Great service!. Perfectly prepared. In general, everything was just very well done! Nice job!!

I not aware that in Emporia, KS we can't buy alcohol in any stores so only option available was Applebee's. Variety of drinks with very nice food. Nachos as complimentary and I liked onion rings. I must say they have a very friendly staff.

Poorly managed and staffed. We are local and seem to always leave wondering why we gave appleDees a passing grade. Emporia doesn't have a lot of choices but fast food is as good a choice as this place. Go south of the interstate to bruffs or downtown to bobby d's or casa Ramos, across town to do bees or down...

We stopped for a quick lunch. Atmosphere clean and orderly. Service was quick and friendly. However, food was average at best. My dish's meat was extremely tough and a few pieces of my wife's shrimp appeared to be under cooked.

Ordered to-go, a salad. Went there to pick it up 15 minutes later, I still had to sit at the bar and wait another 15 minutes before it was ready. But it was good, staff was friendly, but for calling in an order, I thought it could be faster.

We have an Applebee's at home and thought this would be a good choice and comparable to our at home. Should have thought twice about this restaurant. The steak was not done right, the portion of the mashed potatoes was tiny compared to home. I ordered french onion soup and it was so cold the cheese wouldn't melt. Sent it... More

On a school visit to Emporia State we stopped in for dinner. We were seated immediately by a wonderfully funny lady and the waiter was there to take our drink orders before we had time to open the menus. He was back to take our orders quickly and we didn't have to wait long for our food. We all had... More

I'm not sure what is going on at Applebees; the number of customers there on a Sunday for dinner was definitely less than normal.. Food was very good once we received it. Service was slow and servers could use some training in responding to diner requests. Won't be returning soon.

I stay in Emporia, Ks one night every week. I eat at Applebee's every time I'm in town. I eat at the bar area every time. The reason I go there is because Rachel is very attentive. She keeps everyone served and always has a smile. I will continue to patronize this restaurant. Highly recommend.

I travel all the time and look for restaurants such as Applebee's to eat. This one is average and the staff is very aloof.
