Reviewed 4 March 2014

There just are not that many interesting restaurants to choose from in this area, so Applebee's actually stands out for good food with a clean and interesting setting and some healthy food choices. I have always found the service to be attentive. It seems like management really trains the staff to engage the customers. On several visits, this seemed a little over done. I'm sad to see that there are some reviewers who had a different experience.

The food is good- in fact I wouldn't normally review your run of the mill chain restaurant, however- the staff here was horrible. Ate here with a girlfriend of mine and was literally insulted by our waitress the whole evening. Starting with her calling us lame and boring bc it was after 10pm and we wanted virgin drinks. We both had 30minute drives afterward and had to be up early the next day. Nonetheless our reasons are ours. You do NOT insult the customers.

The food was good, price was good. Nothing I didn't really expect from Applebee's. Convenient location (about 2 miles from Quality Inn & Suites)

In Lacey for work - stopped here for lunch. The hostess was very nice and perky....welcomed us and said our server would be Braden and left us the manager's name Dannette (?). She left and we waited. We waited. We waited. About 10 minutes later, we saw a server in our general vicinity who was kind of all over the place with tables. He walked by several times, saw we were sitting there but finally came over to introduce himself. He was very pleasant and welcomed us. Took our drink order and food order, since we had waited long enough to decide already.

Service was so slow. I've never been in an Applebee's where the kitchen took as long as it did to prepare food. It was not overly packed, there were several booths and tables not in use. Our server tended to float around and was always walking, but you never saw him with food or beverages or really anything. Most of our refills and well, all of our orders were delivered by at least 3 other servers and the manager....

The whole lunch experience took way too long. And although the food was typical Applebee's fare, It was not one of my better franchise experiences.

Applebees are all the same. Good basic diner food. Nothing fancy, usually have to wait for a table. Great selection of food.
