Average at best dinner

We went in for dinner. Nothing was horrible about the meal but nothing was very good either. Service was non attentive. The food was okay but not great. The beer was cold though!

I couldn't believe service could be so poor. After we received our food, we had to ask for tableware, and then had to wait. No one came back to refill drinks, remove dirty salad plates, or ask if our food was okay. After we finished, we waited well over 10 minutes to get our bill. Finally, we asked for our... More

When going to an Applebee's there is an expectation of a friendly welcoming when you enter the door, a clean environment, professionally prepared meal, good service and a pleasant place to visit with your friends. Unfortunately each of those things didn't happen. When we entered, there was not a greeter, nor instruction to seat yourself. So, we sat at the... More

Located on Busy Street without legal u-turns at lights. Best, Safest, to arrive North Bound on Woodbine Rd or East Bound on Frederick Ave. For a Party of two ordering one sandwich, one chicken salad and two soft drinks the price of $32 is too much to pay for slow service, average food and Uncomfortable seating.

Old building, clean, understaffed, short wait, good reliable Applebys food. Serious disconnect between the bar service and table service. Need staff with training. Do not go if you are in a hurry.

This is either a really old restaurant of the owners/managers don't like to clean. Everything was sticky and if you look up at the air vents - well we almost walked out but we had already ordered our food and we were starving as we had been traveling. The food itself was good but they need more waitstaff and a... More

I recently ate here with my husband and we loved it. Mouse waitress was so nice and polite, even though she was swamped she always made time to check on us. Everytime we go in there we are going to ask for Her. We always heard it was a bad place, but compared to the restaurant next door, it's amazing.

The shrimp in my salad were barely cooked, still translucent. This was a to-go order so no returning it. Their Car side to-go, is like no others I've been to, you have to go inside to get your order. Found out after 12-minutes sitting in my car. The staff were none too friendly, It was like I was bothering for... More
