After a grueling ten hour drive we found this restaurant open at ten thirty pm. The service was excellent, food delicious. We enjoyed a 2 for $20.00 dinner with mozerella sticks.

Sirloin steak cooked to perfect medium. The sides were ok. Not many people so. Service was good. Every table has a small computer, yo can order, play or pay from it. Cute.

This restaurant offers family dining with a distinctive sports bar atmosphere. The hub or centerpiece feature is a wrap-around bar with nearly a dozen flat screens in view. The seating sections offer family dining with a combination of booths and large tables. This Applebee’s is on the smallish side, so I assume that it fills up quickly at busy times.... More

The food was okay. I mainly went there because I could walk from my hotel, so I felt ok drinking a beer. They basically rushed me out the door or the server disappeared altogether. Also, it seemed like every dish had onions in it. There's a reason I don't usually eat at Applebee's.

This Applebee's was only okay. We went here on a Saturday night for drinks and appetizers while watching the game, and it was nothing special. The hostess acted like she was bored and didn't really like her job; the waitress was nice but forgetful - she had to ask us to repeat our orders several times because she forgot what... More

If you are working the day of a National Football Playoff, no matter what your team is, do not criticize the teams that are playing in the playoffs. The customers are listening. That is why the bartender did not receive a tip for the drink that was served to our table. Go Tigers.

Had to wait sometime for our waiter to come to take our order. The place was not that busy but it seemed that the service was slow and the food took some while to come out. The food was good but the poor service made this experience not so great.

We were in Columbia for 3 weeks and ate at Applebee's twice during our stay. Both times we were seated quickly, had a friendly server, food was hot and received the way we ordered.
