On our last visit we had the $20 special with two entrees and an appetizer. We used the take out option and as always they were prompt and courteous. Their take out is very customer friendly as opposed to many. You have designated parking and even more important they are watching for you. We had 2 specialty salads on this... More

Friendly staff and nice atmosphere but the food was subpar. The ribs were overlooked and dry. The stir fry was under portioned for the price. First visit so we might try again. If your really Hungary for tasty food try another place in town.

Sorry, I forgot what I had, but it was good! We walked over from Best Western. Very convenient. My wife loves Applebees's and I like it too.

This restaurant quality of food was as one would expect from an Applebee's. The staff were exceptional - very attentive and courteous. The service was quick and efficient. We will return the next time we are passing through Athens, AL.

Applebee's is just a good neighborhood restaurant / bar. Nothing fancy, just good food at reasonable prices. Happy Hour is a good time to visit as there are specials on food and cocktails. The bar staff, where we usually sit, is friendly and atentative.

Staying at a near by hotel. Got seared quick. Sever, Bethany, was great and friendly. Mom's meal was a little late but was good. Food was just as ordered. They offer a 10% military discount, or a 10% discount if you show your hotel card (Holiday Inn).

It's been over two years since we last ate at an Applebee's, simply because of experiences just like the one we got here. We were seated quickly, which was nice, but given a dirty table, which was not. The waiter was friendly enough, but distracted and bad at focusing. Tables around us were left with dirty dishes piled on them... More

The food was wonderful, as was the service. We are from Indiana and the alcohol prices were amazing. Great place.
