Not one of the better Applebee's...

It was Fri night and the servers were all young. Started out ok, but had to catch the server for a straw. Didn't take too long for the food, the ribets. First time I've ever had them painted with a small amount of BBQ sauce. No napkins, or knife and fork. Had to find server again, and he went... read more

my riblets were get this - boiled -- water was in the bottom of my basket, they were tasteless and looked really bad. I did not return them because it was late and we were hungry and it took long enough to get our food to us. I always eat riblets at Applebees - for years and years now --... More

The menu is very limited for vegetarians but the bartender was an absolute idiot! She actually put my tequila on ICE. When I complained, she simply dumped out the ice and handed me the watered down $8 a shot tequila!

We were seated quickly. But, our server never appeared, the host took our drink order. The tea was very gross, tasted like the bag was left in way too long. So, our waiter finally appeared and we ordered food and I wanted a coke. He disappeared. Funny how he was waiting on another table but refused to come over here.... More

This is really not a bad review, but not a good one either. The waiter we had was pleasant, but didn't get in a hurry. Food was cold, and to be honest, tasted like leftovers warmed in microwave.

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Gulf Shores. One of the worst choices I could have made. When we were greeted by a 10 year old, working with his sister, I should have known we were in trouble. Total chaos and no clear server to help us. I ordered a soup and salad and my wife had a... More

We met our son and daughter-in-law at Applebee's between Christmas and New Year's when they were headed home, mainly because they knew where it's located. We've been there before and were underwhelmed. The last time I had Thai Shrimp salad. It was OK, but wouldn't order it again. I went more generic this time, and had a mushroom Swiss burger.... More

Applebee's is a pretty dependable restaurant choice, and this one was no exception. The service was excellent and our server was very personable. The food was quite good. Their calorically lighter dishes are appreciated, since we watch what we eat. The one recommendation I have is that if you have the Thai Shrimp Salad (not certain of the exact name... More
