Wow and not in a good way.

This was an embarrassing visit. Service was horrific and slow - food was wrong and cold - appetizers brought out after dinner was served. Lots of bad excuses for things, manager was less than helpful. I would not return.

We stopped at this Applebee's after a meeting across the street. The service was very slow -- we were seated at 1:15, at a time when there weren't many people there. Our server didn't come by to take our order until 1:30. A large party came in five minutes later so we were glad we placed our order before they... More

The service and the food were a bit better than normal for a Chain restaurant. We were a bit disappointed that the chain has switched to Anheuser Busch products and as such our favorite draft beer, Blue Moon is no longer available. Service was excellent. The waitstaff was friendly and the place was quite busy. it is not far from... More

We visited Washington, DC over the July 4th weekend and ate at this Applebee's as we were staying at the hotel next door. The food is great and our waiter was very polite. This Applebee's is in a quiet area.

I had dinner with a friend while in town and this was an excellent meal. The food, service, and atmosphere were truly enjoyable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Afetr being seated, it took our server about 15 minutes to come over just to get a drink order (she was to busy laughing it up behind the bar with other staff) When she did come over she took our drink and appy order and...

The long wait just for the hostess to show up should have been a sign for us to go elsewhere, When the hostess arrived from somewhere in the back, she said that despite many empty tables where was a 15 minutes wait to be seated, Why? Because they were short of servers. We agreed to eat at the bar, and... More

Terrible service. I had finished my meal before others in my part had even been served their food. When we questioned our server where the rest of our order was, his reply was "I only serve the food"! He had a serious attitude. Stay away from here, all the bad reviews tell a story.

We went to applebees hoping to catch a somewhat quick lunch before driving home 4 hours after my brothers graduation. Our appetizers took almost an hour to come out. We were told that our sampler platter had been dropped in the back by another server and it needed to be remade. That didn't bother us too much because we understand... More
