Greeting- par Service - inexcusably rude, and inattentive Entree: Ordered a "House Sirloin (9oz)" sirloin, with "roma pepper" trimmings, 86-pots, sub steamed vegetables. Received- (supposedly) 9oz (?) sirloin, marinated roma tomato topping... and this is where Applebee's service ended, and was replaced by an arrogant, and disrespectful bartender named Sara. After I was presented with my plate by some hippie (without asking if it was to order), I waited patiently for his conversation to end with two other patrons. After said conversation ended with said hippie, he was of no assistance, as he was predisposed to another area. Enter Sara, the bartender who took my order, screwed it up, interrupted me TWICE before I could explain what was wrong with my dinner. After I was so rudely interrupted the 2nd time, I made it very apparent that I had nothing further to say to someone who wasn't listening, and had no desire to hear any audible contribution from the audacity that is Sara's mouth. Even after I CLEARLY INSTRUCTED Sara that I wanted to hear nothing further, she insisted upon saying "I can fix it". I continued to eat my "Signature Sirloin (7oz)", with the potatoes I did not want, and devoid of the steamed vegetables I requested. Note: Said hippie stated "Signature Sirloin (7oz)" as he placed my meal. Other complaints: The supposed "artichoke and cheese stuffed portobello mushroom" had been pressed flat, and topped (not stuffed) with artichoke only (no cheese to be found). I live in Wytheville, VA of all places. A little country town with an Applebee's of far greater service, respect, and expediency. I know what great Applebee's service is. I feel it is quite sad to receive such sub-standard service at an establishment who's name is well known for such a higher degree of expectation. "Sarah P" had my meal comped, only charging for my drink. I don't want a discount. I want what I ordered, as it was ordered, with any discrepancies handled with respect, without interruption to my concerns, and a proper apology. The apology came after I approached the manager, requesting that my ticket be restored to full price. A whole new definition of "sorry" is now in play, as he could not follow the simple instruction, citing: "it would be too much trouble". Apparently, it's also too much trouble to hire (or train) bartenders with the PREREQUISITE traits their parents should have taught them by the age of four (don't interrupt, pay attention, etc.). Needless to say, should I ever feel the need to purchase a 9oz "Roma Pepper" steak from Applebee's, it WILL NOT be here. I hope next time the service will be up to Applebee's standards (ie. received as ordered, or attentively and respectfully rectified if not).

I was reading some of the other reviews and some people are too picky and can never be satisfied. I eat here whenever I'm in the area and typical to Applebee's, I usually leave satisfied. What the hell is gluten? Eat the food, enjoy it and shut the hell up!!

Our server was really sweet, but we got really sick off of the food. We were told that the chips and fries were gluten-free, but were not informed that they share the same fryer with everything else, wheat products included. We ordered a salad without croutons, and got one WITH croutons. We asked for a new one, and the girl just left, took the croutons off, and came back with the same salad.... poor service. I would not recommend this place to anyone who has any sort of food allergies. Try Gella's just a couple miles away. Same prices and much better food and service, plus it is local!

I showed the waitress the really back searing on the underneath side of the chicken. She asked me if I wanted them to bring me something else. I am surprised that Applebee's would not whisk it away to bring another. That taste of the burned chicken stayed with me and spoiled my meal.

The waiter's and waitresses at Applebee's are usually very good! College kids love to go there for the the half priced appetizers from 9 to midnight from Monday to Thursday. People really are too picky. This place is a good family atmosphere with very good service for the non-picky eater (and if you're going to be super picky about your food why don't you just make it yourself?).

It's one of the better places in Hays but its nothing special. Food prepackaged and low quality.

The servers are excellent and the food comes out fast. But it is inedible. The food is all pre processed and loaded up with salt. I could not eat my steak because it was as salty as beef jerkey. The server said that they could make me a new one with out seasoning, but then found out they are pre seasoned and frozen. Everything I order is too salty to eat. I would not go there at all if there was another restursnt open besides ihop which is every bit as bad when it comes to food quality. If applebees could bring in some low sodium options it could be one of the best places in town.

Our service was awful! Was in the restaurant for almost 2 hrs during lunch! When we finally got our food my bread for my sandwich was mushy. I don't get to eat our much so I was very upset when we left. Probably won't ever eat there again!
