Great lunch value

I've always enjoyed Applebees but also have known them to be rather slow with their service - one waiter to take your order, another to serve. Usually the kitchen was the hold-up. Not true today. Just tried their lunch menu (Tuesday nacho special for $6.99) with sister & 82 year old father. From... read more

Ate here while staying at a local hotel for one night. The service was great. The food was okay. I had the ribs and they tasted good even though they lacked having enough meat on them. The fries and slaw were good. The sweet tea was fabulous. Even got a 10% discount for staying at the hotel next door.

We made 2 stops at this place over a 4 day period. 1st time food was ok but service was not very good. 3 days later they got my wives order wrong and tried to get her to take the wrong order, they seemed shocked that she wanted what she ordered. So I ate my meal while she waited for... More

Applebees was adjacent to our hotel so very easy to walk there for dinner. The food and service was excellent, they offer a 2 for $20 special so if you want to save money and have a good dinner, this would be the place.

We eat at this restaurant almost every Sunday after church. The staff is always friendly, food is good, served on time, we have never been disappointed with any of those things. The one thing I noticed today was a new girl kinda hiding in the wait section texting. I don't think staff should have cell phones while on duty.

Traveled between Cullman and Nashville - stopped at Applebee's for lunch with family on this trip. This is always a great clean and affordable place to stop. Not to mention that the staff is always good as well as the food. BIG APPLEBEE'S FAN!
