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.

We were within walking distance from our hotel and decided to try it. We ordered steaks( since we are in Kansas) and were not disappointed. Our waiter Brandon, was very attentive to details and our steaks were perfectly cooked. We mentioned we were from out of State to celebrate our sons Birthday, which was the next day, and he had...

We stopped here for lunch prior to the busy time with a limited number of people in the restaurant when we arrived. Food was just like other Applebee's. Service was very slow. I would try somewhere else the next time.

Expectations were too high, normally a great place to dine, maybe a onetime slip in performance, we will see. Apples has the gagets to keep you busy and to pay if everyone does what they suppose todo. The food as a rule is tasty but routine, the employees just missed that down home feeling.

10pm Friday night went for dinner. Out of all the things we wanted! Hope you'll have better luck! Don't think I'll try this location again

We'd been on the road for 11 hours. We were tired, grumpy, and hungry. So we stopped in here. Our server was a lovely, perky (and not annoyingly so) woman named Jolene. She had that quality that made you feel like you were her most important table. She was attentive, and anticipated our every need. The food was good...nothing necessarily... More
