I should have remembered the first experience we had and never returned. However, we were gifted 30.00 in gift cards so we thought why not. We were seated immediately and our server was very attentive. I asked for a sweet tea and got an unsweetened one instead. I tried to drink it but I just couldn't it was so bad,... More

While on business I went to eat at this location. The service was good but the food was unacceptable. I ordered a steak medium well and the first time it came out medium rare. I sent it back and when it was brought back to me it looked like one side was placed on the grill to remove some color... More

It is a typical chain restaurant. Our server was less than stellar. No plates with an appetizer, forgot the protein on a salad, slow refills. Food was average, even for a chain. With such an extensive menu (it is a book, for goodness' sake!!) I expect something a bit different to set your place apart from other chains. Sadly, Applebee's... More

From the moment we were seated, the circus began. Waited for our waitress too long...she was obviously untrained or didn't care. (to be fair- the hostess was the sweetest and most helpful person)...The Kitchen staff was even worse than she was... they could be heard yelling obscenities as each other and then laugh about it.... not once or twice but...

I have frequented the other Applebee's in Lubbock and in other markets, but I have to say this is the worst service of any Applebee's I've ever encountered. Tonight's visit was absolutely miserable from the moment I approached the hostess stand and was greeted with, "Can you please just wait? I'm not ready for you yet." (There was no one... More

The service was probably the best thing about this trip. I ordered the half rack of ribs and my mom ordered the sirloin. The ribs were very small, chewy and tasteless and was about fifteen bucks. The sirloin was very dry and the vegetables seemed burnt. With appetizers and waters, our ticket came out to about 43 dollars. It was... More

My co workers and I go to this Applebee's often and we have over the past 2 years. It's in our neighborhood and the service is always great, the food is always yummy and the drink specials always accommodate! We've been there for lunch during the week, lunch on the weekends, dinner during the week and dinner during the weekend... More

We have been going to Applebee's on 4th street for several months and usually had a good experience at the restaurant. Today, 07-31-2015 that all changed. Our waiter did a good job an was doing well as our server until the meal came. I ordered a pretzel with a beer cheese dip that was Ok, but as a meal I... More

On a recent visit we did not have a good experience. We were asked for our beverage order and we ordered a white wine. The waitress came back and said there was no white wine, so ordered a red. On return we were told there was white wine so we then ask the price. They could not find a price.... More

This was our second visit in 3 weeks. The first was ok, this one was a disaster. Service was non-existent. We ate at a booth in the bar. The bartender was swamped. Every time he approached the table, he was saying he was sorry, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I had soup and a small salad, it was fine. Hubby... More
