The missus and I have not eaten here in many years. It's nothing personal, but more of a branding thing. It's not like you think "Oh, I'm really hungry, I'll go to Applebee's." Same with Chili's only worse, the name Chili's at least suggests that something Mexican or hot might be on the menu. "Applebee's" suggests what, green beer, leprechauns,... More

We have been here once or twice since moving here from NH but tonight was the last time we will frequent this sub standard restaurant. Our 2 appetizers arrived Luke warm, my chicken fajita wrap was drenched in sauce and cheese, with minimal chicken to be found. Drinks were watered down. The manager had to settle people down who were... More

We haven't ate at Applebee's in years and decided to go here for dinner and it's just not the same as it used to be. The beer is still ice cold and cheap but their food has changed so much. We always ordered the spinach artichoke dip and it was always good but this past time it didn't have much... More

The only reason I give two stars is for the waiter. Otherwise the food was over cooked way over cooked. I ordered the beef nachos and the hamburger was hard and greasy. The brunch burger was the about 3" in diameter and didn't fill up the bun. I was amused at how many fries I received: 12. These are the... More

We went in for a family dinner, and were taken immediately back to be seated. Our table was clearly dirty, so the hostess asked us to wait while she wiped it down. That should have been the first clue. Our server brought us our drink order (water and soda). After that, she didn't return to our table. At all. We... More

I ordered as a side a salad an entree which was size able enough to be an entree, but I found the topping to an individual cheddar cheese wrapper in it. First it shouldn't have been a personal size, it should have been more of a fresh item, but the tear off plastic lid in my salad?! Made it a... More
