Good food, slooooow service

Typical menu which is consistence no matter which location you visit. Sunday night, place was packed. Food was pretty good, fried pretzels are the best I've ever eaten, well except for NASCAR Cafe at City walk which is now closed. Service was sooooooo slow.

WORTH service ever! Well NO SERVICE at all. We were sitting , waiting 15 minutes without anybody saying at least HELLO. The people in front of us and in the back of our table were sat after us and they have service right away. So we LEFT. Even with the little table computer was turn RED, like calling the server....

So my friends and I were looking for a place to eat after a day at Busch Gardens, so one of them really wanted Applebees and this one was the closest so we decided to go there. We've ate at other Applebees and had pretty good experiences. However this one was not one of them. To start, while we were... More

People we were with said Applebee's was an OK place to eat so after a long day at Busch Gardens we popped in here on the way home. First thing you must remember is ID as they won't serve anyone alcohol without it. Even I had to show ID and I am clearly not young at 55. The food came... More

We ate at another Applebee's location some time back so we have stayed away from this Chain of Restaurants for quite some time. Last night on a whim we decided to try this place and we were very surprised. I will say it was a little dirty, dead flies on the windows (like no one cleans back there) and our... More

My party of 6 didn't want to wait the 30 minutes for a table (while there were a plethora of open tables that just needed to be wiped down, mind you) so we chose to sit at the bar. This proved to be a magnificent choice. The ladies at the bar were quick to attend us and explain the 2... More

I ordered the Fiesta Lime chicken and they threw in some table scraps to go. I found a potato spinner, a fry, some lettuce, and some other items in my dish which didn't belong. I tried reporting the issue to no avail because their "contact us" section of their website isn't responsive. I guess it is just for show. Needless... More

Typical Applebee's menu. We were quickly seated (ate at 5:30 PM), Very good service from out Waiter (Jackson) Food was prepared in a timely manner and well seasoned (as we like it). Plenty of parking in the strip mall where Applebee's is located.
