The Austin location closed Sunday night for a redesign of its dining area and was opened once more at 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to general manager Bryan Otte.

The restaurant updated the awnings and signs on the outside, along with new carpets, new booths, a brand new bar, new wall designs featuring photos by Austin Daily Herald photographer Eric Johnson and more. All told, the Applebee’s corporate office spent more than $250,000 on the construction project.

“It’s pretty exciting to see this store get updated like it is,” Otte said.
