So angry, tired and disappointed....On a long business trip. Tired after a 13 hr day. Call Waverly IA Applebee's place an order for pickup. Verify the address and road to turn on, etc as we have never been there. Even get a total for our order. Show up 30 minutes later to be told they have no order for us BY THE SAME voice that took the order. Makes me verify the number I called. Yup right number. She asks other staff and nope no order.... offers to take an order. Decided nope! Had she taken ownership of dropping the ball and not getting our food made, I would have given them the business. We all make mistakes. But to lie... nope

Service was VERY slow. Restaurant was not busy by any means. Was seated at a table, 10 minutes later had to ask for service. Food was either burnt and dry or cold. Had to go to the bar and ask for our bill.

Food was good, but they charged my debit card with someone else's bill and my bill. It is supposed to be fixed within 24, I was told to watch my card and if it isn't to come back and talk to the manager. Frustrating

I feel sorry for the staff. I think they are very busy and understaffed. We ordered carside to go only to get home and discover that half of our order was missing. The half we did get was quite cold. We promptly called them and, to make a long story short, they fixed their mistakes and compensated us for the 20 mile drive back to get new food. The second order was warm and delicious. Thank you for fixing the mistakes and making things right.

To me I don’t rely sometimes on reviews. Before I visited this restaurant, I checked the reviews and comments of customers. I saw that it was low but I told myself there’s nothing wrong of trying. I had a very nice experience with the server named Nicholas and he has a very nice customer service. Besides that food was great. Thank you Nicholas for the excellent service. See you next time.

It was a very strange visit. The steak was undercooked and cold. The $1 shrimp were great. The mashed potatoes were bland. Very bland. The cooked broccoli on the other hand was fantastic. The staff oddly refused to turn on the outside lighting. The place looked deserted and closed. I arrived just before dark but after It got dark no other people came in after me. My server was friendly and check back on me often. I used to get here frequently, but since COVID-19 it's just not that great anymore

Place was almost empty even though it was lunch time. Our server was efficient. I had the tortilla soup and side salad. Husband tried the ribblets, but didn't care for the Asian sauce. He said he would order regular ribs next time. We are traveling through and this was a one time stop.

Ordered for Carside to go. Wife's meal was fine. I ordered a Quesadilla burger well done and this is what I got. Basically a raw burger. Called them and was told the following, we can cook another one and you come get it, or we can mail you some coupons. Just skip this place.

My friends and I went here to eat before our hoco dance, we waited for over 40 minutes, and ended up getting cold melted ice cream and lava melt (which I was told I was going to get a new bowl of) chicken wings, French fries, steak, mash potatoes, and cheeseburgers. I have NEVER been more disappointed in my life. I will NEVER EVER be coming back, I highly urge you NOT to come here unless you want to be disappointed! Also I never got the new bowl of ice cream.

Place sucks, when seated I'm sat at a table with no leg room. After seated we order and the food takes 43 minutes to get one appetizer when we had 2 other plates and another 5 to get the rest. When we finally got our food it was room temperature-cold and it was not very good. The steak I ordered to be medium-rare was delivered well done with broccoli that was cold and very mediocre mashed potatoes. Would not recommend this for anyone including people who looking for disappointment, it's just that bad
