We stopped at the applebees in wadsworth ohio for dinner at 9:30pm. We had super service and food was great. In fact, one of us ordered ginger ale. The waitress said - we don't like the brand we have, so please order something else. We stayed until closing.

It's not bad food but not great food. If you have been to Applebee's before you will have the same type of food. Wait staff if just ok. Bartenders are much better. If you want something like bar or pub food it's good.

Overall everything was great. I had ordered the four cheese mac and I could not even taste one of the cheese's. The bartender did say she would replace it with something else off the menu. The service was very good, the help was friendly and I would go back again.

We stopped at this Applebee's on our way back to Canada. It's located right off of 81 which is very convenient for travellers. The restaurant and service exceeded our expectations. I ordered the Thai shrimp salad. My husband ordered the bourbon steak. Both of us were super impressed with the taste and quality of each dish. My salad was $12.79... More

Prompt service, I had a lunch combo of the better dishes. Enjoyable. I had the 4-cheese mac-n-cheese with chicken tenders, and the Clubhouse Grill sandwich combo.

Went to Applebee's for dinner while in Watertown. Great food and had a very good server. I like the machine on the table where you can pay when you want because then you don't have to wait.

Great staff, friendly and helpful. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our server (Gage) was awesome. Our meals (all of our party of 3) were delicious, good portions and good prices. I would recommend to friends and family and I look forward to going back next time I'm in the area.

Good selection, prompt service and convenient to hotel location. Server was friendly and kindly recommended the "two for twenty" specials; very economical choice!

Dropped in for an early dinner on a Friday and was quickly seated. The waitress was at my table within a few minutes and was very helpful. I had the chicken tortilla soup to start. I would rate it as a 7/10 - to many tortilla strips in it and not creamy enough for my liking but that is more... More
