Not bad...but not great either...would be 3 1/2

It wasn't bad, but you knew what it was going to be like- service started off very good, but became ordinary as our stay progressed. Very comfortable atmosphere though

I know it's a chain restaurant and I know that most of the food probably comes in frozen in plastic portion bags. But the service here is possibly the best in Burlington. Since it is a chain, I think they take the time to properly train the wait staff. As a former waitress myself, I'm pretty critical of servers, but... More

We went to here to eat lunch and had children with us. Out of the 7 of us, 2 of us received what we actually ordered. The children actually said what they wanted and pointed to the corresponding picture and still they didn't get our order correct. We had to have three of the items corrected due to food allergies,...

Applebee's has always been a great restaurant that I enjoyed going to but that was when I was in Indiana and Illinois. This one food is not good. No flavor and food was not hot. My family will not be going back

We stopped because Carlos OKelly is out of business. And the food was marginal with little servings. The wait staff was okay but slow in the kitchen. Probably won't be going back

My husband and I are especially fond of Applebee's lunch specials of two dishes. It offers a good variety and good value. We also enjoyed their weekly NASCAR contests and were lucky enough to win a few times. Cassandra is our favorite waitress.

A friend and I stopped into Applebee's during a Sunday afternoon shopping excursion. We decided on the 2 for $20 selections, starting off with the tortilla chips and spinach and artichoke dip, which was yummy! My friend had the Oriental Chicken Salad and I went with the Chicken Tenders Basket. (chicken strips and fries) Both our meals were prepared quickly,... More

A friend of mine and I visited Applebees just to sit down and enjoy a quiet meal and chat. It was perfect. We told them ahead of time that was what we were needing and they sat us away from the crowd and we had a very pleasant time, and the food was amazing. So were the Margs! ;)

Avoided the place for well over a year for two reasons... it being an Applebee's ... and was a poorly run one at that Reluctantly returned after hearing it was remodeled and had new staff. The verdict? Quite the change for the positive. It no longer looks shabby inside, and much more importantly... excellent service. Still an Applebee's, but now... More
