We were told to seat ourselves and unfortunately picked a table near the bar beside three very loud cursing men, apparently on lunch break and drunk. Management and servers ignored the F bombs and GDs, We chose to eat there because of an email received from Applebee's listing daily specials for M-F. Friday was 'fish and chips' for $9.99. On...

There was 5 of us, including my 82 year old father-in-law, there for supper using gift cards we had all received for Christmas. Most of us ordered specials of $9.99 each, even ordered the Create your own Appetizer or something like that. First we were disappointed with the Appetizer because for $9.98 we received so little -- 4 cheese sticks... More

I said in my last review I would not come back here. The last several visits did not impress. Well, I caved because my dad really wanted to have lunch here. This time did not disappoint! Had the sirloin stir fry which was really good! The only down side their choices of salad dressings. Not a lot to choose from,... More

Our friends and us decided to go out for dinner on a Sunday evening after cleaning up all weekend from Hurricane Matthew. Our regular spots were closed on Sunday so we thought we would give Applebee's another try. I say 'another try' because we have been disappointed several times in the past. Poor service, poor management, crowded and dirty. This... More

Would go more often, but always a long wait for a table. Two for 20 a great deal, when we get 2 entrees and an appetizer to share, all for $20. Service good, once you're seated.

Typical Applebee's and can get very crowded on weekends due to the few options in the area. The staff is usually pretty good, sometimes we've run into really slow servers but that is any restaurant.

I have just returned from eating dinner here. It took forever to get the food, get the check and get the returned card receipt. Not reason for this as the restaurant was nearly empty. Small issues also noted-no pickle on a hamburger appetizer plate that was shown in the photo, wrong drink applied to a different check. But the wait... More

Had a business dinner here on a Wednesday night. Place was nearly empty. Seated immediately by a cheerful hostess. Our waiter was new on the job, only his third day, he told us, but did a really great job. Took very good care of us, keeping our drinks full, getting the appetizers and entrees out quickly. Boneless Buffalo Wings were... More
