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!

Had a nice relaxing dinner after a long day of driving. Service was good. Food was tasty. Price was reasonable with a discount from our motel.

I've eaten here once, & tried to twice. People waiting on waitresses because they are hanging out in the corner. No one greeted us after waitint for 20 minutes and they weren't busy. Try the one in Decatur or Huntsville

Service was prompt and friendly. As is expected at Applebee’s, the food was good and reasonably priced but nothing exceptional. The restaurant is located right next to the Best Western and offers a 10% discount for those staying there.

We especially enjoy the spinach dip and Asian Salad. I want to SALUTE Applebees recognition of their annual Veterans Day meal for Veterans. As said "their is nothing free about freedom". I respect and truly enjoy our meals. Ribs are really tender and good. Sweet staff at the Athens location. A notch above the rest.

I hate to rate a chain the best but it is by far the best place to eat. We went back twice besides the fact that most of the other places were not very good this Applebee's was great. The hostes was a cute young thing with a smile. The waiter was fast and efficient and the food was terrific.... More
