Walked into the Applebee's expecting about the same service I have experienced in my home state but sad to say it was not even close!! Waited very long just to get a waitresses attention after the hostess sat us at our table. Asked for water, never got it. When she came back to get our order we reminded her of... More

It used to be a great place, but now the food is very sloppy, incomplete and messy. The piña colada was flat and no cherry or pineapple for presentation.

(I'm unable to rate this experience with a 0) 1 female bartender was working the bar. It took her ~9 minutes to acknowledge my presence. I ordered a shot of liquor accompanied by a sprite. The liquor was served with fingerprints and lipstick from another person; in addition, the sprite glass had a piece of small paper floating from the... More

I wanted to go because of TV ads, the ad is all Applebee's has going for it. The food presentation was unappealing and sloppy. I would fire the entire kitchen staff for serving food that is cold, tasteless and unappealing. I told the waitress and she asked if I wanted a replacement---I wanted my money. If I were to summarize... More

Always offers good food at a reasonable price. Competition is fierce so this chains have to be on top of their game. Have never been disappointed.

Came here before a Yankee game, because of the convenience. We would have been better off waiting to eat at the game. The place was not that busy (despite the pre-game crowd) and our waitress visited us once - to take our order (after we had been sitting and waiting 10 minutes). Maybe I shouldn't complain - a group of... More

Service at the Bay Plaza and Parkchester stores are O.K. but they have a hard time processing any special request like no sauces or changes in the meal. Had to wait for 45 minutes to get my son's meal , they kept getting the order wrong. Least they could of done was give him a complimentary desert or soft drink.... More

If you want a really good drink you have to sit at the bar, look in the bartenders face and make nice. If you order drinks from a table you get whatever you get.

Prepared well.and did not have to wait long. They didn't have the portebello mushrooms however, that was the only sore spot. It was Veterans's Daym and Veterans ate for free at Applebee's, so i guess they ran out. But my steak was excellently made.
