Fine if you have plenty of time

We have eaten at this Applebee three years in a row. The food is good and waitstaff is pleasant. However the service is extremely slow. The restaurant is always busy but management does not schedule enough waitstaff and/or cooks to handle the customers. You have to wait even if there are plenty... read more

On the way back to Canada, we had dinner here. Our server Demetrius, was fabulous. We went for the Two for Twenty. We had the Ceasar Salad, I had the Bourbon Steak and my husband had the Chicken and Shrimp. Both meals were delicious. My only issue is that the entree came before we had time to finish the salads.... More

We went to Applebee's, only because it was the closed restaurant to the Hampton Inn and we did not want to drive anymore today. My wife had chicken wings and I had a salad. The food itself was pretty basic and tasteless. However, my wife has a distinct reaction to food laced with MSG. Her hands and feet swell almost... More

Walking across the parking lot from the Hampton Inn made this a no brainier, but it all fell apart when we entered the almost empty restaurant. The hostess told us it would be 30 minutes for a table. Seeing we couldn't see more than five diners in the place! We were told that it was because they were shor of... More

Despite posted reviews, our family decided to give this location a chance. Big mistake! My order was wrong, and did not come back to the table until everyone else had finished their meals AND dessert! At that point I did not want the meal as we were ready to return to the hotel. Since my meal was part of a... More

We stopped in Marietta on our way home from vacation. After a long day of driving, I was looking forward to a nice meal at Applebee's. I waited tables at one in college and am still partial to the chain. The host was friendly and seated us fairly quickly. That was the only quick thing about the evening. It took... More
