Reviewed 16 August 2013

While staying at The Herkimer Motel and Suites we drove down to the main street and were fortunate to find an Applebee's. Having just arrived from New Hampshire where good restaurants and good food are almost impossible to find, it was wonderful to be able to try their summer menu with lettuce wedges topped with Green goddess dressing. The salads and berries are as fresh as off the farm.
The drinks were great - they have specials in the summer and Wednesday's was ladies night where prizes were awarded after answering some interesting questions.
The restaurant is on the main drag so easy to find and again, the quality is standard and consistent.
The Peach Sangria was wonderful.

I don't normally eat at Applebee's because where I live it's not that good. But we had just arrived in town after a very long 26 hour drive and were hungry and tired and wanted a big meal before bed. We were greeted and seated right away, given a nice, clean booth, our server was pleasant and not overbearing, and we both loved our food. I had the salmon and it was fantastic! I also really enjoyed the way they have the walls decorated with local things. We were very satisfied.

my family, a party of eight, arrived in town from across the country shortly after midnight. We were hungry and found that Applebee's closed at 1am. We got there shortly around 1220am. there were some other patrons but they had obviously started closing up, too. They gave us some "hims and haws" then seated us, saying that we should order quick because the kitchen was closing. We ordered promptly. It took them 10 minutes to bring water and order drinks. The food was delivered about quarter to 1am. No one asked whether we wanted another drink nor announced "last call". I finally asked the waitress, who by then was sweeping the floor, if we could have another drink: "bar is closed." Huh? it was still not yet 1am.

The obvious overwhelming goal was to get home asap, as soon as they could get rid of those pesky customers. So, even though the service sucked, and the food was not much better, they did just fine, tacking on the automatic tip for groups of eight or more.

I was as much sad as angry at their behavior. Applebee's has a well-deserved quality brand that they tarnished. It was a crappy welcome to Herkimer. Got knows the economy needs all the help it can get. Bad management.

They won't be seeing us again.

Applebee's offers low-calorie entrees that are very tasty and filling. The free soft drink refills and nice presentation of the food made our visit very enjoyable.
