The worst appetizer ever! The new brisket nachos look super good on the menu; but, when I got them they had maybe ONE tablespoon of meat on them. There was barely a drizzel of cheese, I paid $10.00 for a pile of chips. What a rip off!

Took our family out to dinner and had a couple questions about an entrée. The waitress we had was very rude, rolling her eyes, and giving us very short, unfriendly answers (if she had one). She spoke very loud, to the point I felt I needed to shield my ear from her voice. She brought out our appetizer, (spinach dip),... More

I just want to apologize, I was in the car side to go tonight and by mistake my order wasn't placed. I became arrogant and rude. I took my bad day out on them and I should have not. They apologize and apologize giving me my meal free. But that was not what I was after. I am truly sorry... More

My husband, my two children and I visited on a Sunday afternoon. We were seated right away. Our table was clean, the whole restaurant was well kept. Our drinks were always full, and our food was delivered promptly. Everything was freshly made and was very good. Our server Layla was fantastic! We will be back!

Waited 18" for appetizer to arrive, then another 5" to get plates after we had to ask for them. I had the half rack of ribs & i had to cut them apart they were so tough. Waitress was overheard complaining that she didn't want to work tonight. I'm not sure that we will ever go back to this Applebee's.

The standard Applebee's fare but I like it fine. No particular menu favorites but I've liked what I've had! Good Margaritas.

I suppose you can say, if you've been to one Applebee's, you've been to them all. Alton's is one of two that we go to on a semi-regular basis and it doesn't disappoint. We love the 2 for $20 deal and the honey BBQ boneless wings are excellent. On our most recent visit, we had one of the most cheerful... More

This is a consistantly good restaurant with lots of choices & almost always excellent service. They have some of the best wait staff anywhere. I love the 2 for $20 choices & their soup and salad options are fabulouos. Great ribs!
