Inconsistent service

The first time we went in, we had a waiter named Steve, and he was wonderful. Two nights later, we had a different waiter that was just awful, and getting waited on and then getting our food took forever.

During my two stays at the hotel next door, I had dinner several times. I experienced good service and enjoyed my meals. Good selection of different entrees to choice from and reasonable prices. Very nice causal dining restaurant.

I arrived late to the hotel next door and it was pouring rain, so I was grateful this Applebee's was there. I ordered takeout potstickers and tortilla soup, both of international dishes that had been heavily Americanized - or Applebeecized. Deep fried pot stickers? I think that violates the very definition of pot stickers. The tortilla soup was super thick... More

We often visit this Applebee's because there aren't that many choices in College Park. Sometimes it has been very frustrating, though. Slow service and hit or miss quality have generally been problems. Today, everyone seemed on their game and with a new menu the place seems to be improving as a lunchtime haunt.

I went to AppleBees a month ago with some friends. We were seated right away and when we received the menu there were various excellent selections. If two in your party order items under the $20 or $25 menu you had a choice of salad, and entree. It was very good and the service was excellent.

Came here on a Sunday around 6pm. It was what I would call a normal busy Applebee's Sunday. First issue...bathroom was disgusting, I reported this to the manager and she said she would take care of it. Three hours later it was even dirtier. Service was slow. Drinks took forever to come out. Appetizer plates were never removed. Food was... More

Service was prompt and cheerful. The food is what it always is, but given the culinary desert of College Park, it's not a bad choice (esp. if you're unwilling to go to Bethesda, downtown Silver Spring, DC, or Chevy Chase).

Where to begin?! Highchair had food still in seat. Took 90 mins to get most, not all of our food. 2 other tables were seated after us and got food before us. Food was cold and not cooked to order. This was one catastrophe after another. Had to ask to see the manager 3 times before she came to table.... More
