Ehhh, It was okay

We ate later in the evening there, but we enjoyed the freshness of the food. I was disappointed in how cold the restaurant was. That made us all uncomfortable. Our server was not the best, but we were able to get refills pretty regularly. They ran out of a few things. There was no one that greeted... read more

Stopped in on a Tuesday night for dinner. Restaurant was about a third full yet service was extremely slow. Once the food arrived we were very disappointed. One of the steaks was cooked incorrectly. The other was full of gristle. Definitely not what we expected from this restaurant. The server was extremely nice but that is the nicest thing I... More

I needed a quick lunch before seeing a client and Applebee's had the biggest sign. The lunch combo I chose was tomato basil soup with thai shrimp salad for $6.99. There was plenty of salad and I was offered seconds of both so I took some more soup. Surprisingly good for a middle of the road chain outfit. Likewise with... More

Beware Applebee's diners. On February 14, or high school sports team ate here and 15 of 35 experienced moderate to severe, medically treated, food poisoning symptoms traced to our meals there. We are especially appalled that the Applebee's management and staff accept no responsibility for the incident. Please support our group in boycotting the Applebee's in Alcoa and the chain... More

As I sit here (been waiting way over an hour) we have yet to see a manager. Horrible service. I would never go back to this one. Server even told us after we hit an hour that the were very backed up due to call offs. All we ordered was appitizers.

Every time we go to Applebee's I get the worst food. The only thing I have ever gotten there that is good is the grilled shrimp and spinach salad but then how can you mess up a salad? The hubby gets the bourbon street steak and he says every one he has ever gotten has been delicious. I order a... More
