Went to Mount Vernon Applebee's the week before and had a bad visit. The visit to the Carbondale restaurant was much better. We just got half priced appetizers but they were really good (pretzels, quesadilla, spinach & artichoke dip) and prompt. I also had the strawberry frozen lemonade which was delicious! Waiter was good too.

We visited Applebee’s after an event at SIU. It was what you would expect from an Applebee’s, and that is good. We were greeted at the door, seated without a wait and had good dinners of fish and chips and chicken tenders. We would definitely return.

Bartender broke a glass around the ice bin, then got rude with me when I stated I wanted my ice from a different bin due to the broken glass. He stated the glass did not go into the bin, although he pulled several pieces from the ice bin right in front of us and started laughing. The bartender also takes... More

The expanded menu of lo calorie food is really worth talking about. However if it sounds (looks) too good to be true, it probably is. The menu is great, but the portions are not consistent, so measure your own portion. But, it is still better than most places and the choices are good.

My friend and I went on a Saturday evening after a movie. When we arrived it appeared closed. The parking lot was pitch black and the signs were not on. We did see people and lights inside (as well as at Panera next door) so we went inside. When I asked about the parking lot lights, the guy seemed confused,... More

Haven't been in an Applesbee's in years, but was pleasantly surprised by the extensive choices on the menu, many diet selections and good service too.

We went here about 10pm for 1/2 price appetizers. They had a decent crowd (6-8 tables) but by no means were they busy. The service was absolutely terrible. I mean we went a LONG time without seeing our waitress and the bartender was too interested in the ball game to pay attention to a patron at the bar. And the... More

When entering this applebee's I had a feeling we should have turned around and left. As we walked in with a baby and two children the the hostess acted as if there were not any available table. The restaurant had hardly anybody in it. Finally she took us to our table and I went to use the restroom. Upon returning... More
