The service was outstanding! From the moment we walked in (@10pm) we were promptly seated and our server Jeremiah was with us quickly and had our drinks out quickly also. He was incredibly helpful with our questions about menu items because my husband and I are on a special diet which makes it hard to eat out. But…between our server... More

The greeters at the door were polite and friendly and the barman was also efficient. However, the female bar tender was unattentive and appeared to be "high". The wait staff hang around the bar area, chatting and joking - not very professional! There appears to be a lack of leadership/management. The food was average but the experience is ruined by...

My wife and I like to come to Applebee's about once a month. We really like going a little later and eating their cheap wings after 9 I believe. Occasionally we will get slow service but most of the time the service is excellent. Never had a problem with the food. It always seems to come in a timely manner... More

Had dinner here with old friends whom we had not seen in years. Our waitress was very patient with us, having to wait over and over on us to make decisions since we were so busy "visiting". The food was delicious and atmosphere conducive to a mini-reunion. We were there for two and a half hours and she was attentive... More

The server my daughter-in-law had was dishonest. When my final charge came through he gave himself an extra $2 tip. There is no way he could have mistook my amounts to say it was a misread.

There are two Applebee's locations in Lubbock. I am primarily reviewing the one at 4th St and Milwaukee. Every time I've been there the food took a LONG time to arrive. I don't expect fast food, but 40 minutes to put a steak on the table seems wrong. Especially when the restaurant was less than half full. I suspect that... More

The food was tasty enough with generous portions, but our server was so ho-hum about serving us that I couldn't wait to leave. She never checked on us, refilled drinks, but gave us our ticket before we were half-way through. It would have been nice if the management was a little more visible, I think she wouldn't have sat and... More

My co-worker and I visited while passing through. The crowd was not bad and the staff was nice. We sat at the bar and our waiter was very attentive to us and was good at holding a conversation. Both me and my co-worker ordered a full rack of honey BBQ ribs. They were slightly thin but cooked to perfection!
