When we arrived the wait was 20 minutes...20 minutes turn into 30 Minutes. We couldn't step out because they have no PA system to communicate. The hostess will yell for you. In the meantime, as we waited and look around the place maintenance is very poor. The rugs are in a very disgusting... read more

After a week vacation and returning to JFK, we were on the road quickly to head home. 20 minutes into our ride.... "Daddy, I need to use the bathroom!" So, off the hi-way to find a restroom. Since we were getting off, I thought we should get breakfast also. Luckily Applebee's was open for breakfast. I have eaten at the... More

A bit of a wait period with the server appearing to forget her routine or that she had other tables (ours). When the meal arrived it took some time for me to swallow the first bite; the meal was bland; the artichoke dip was the only enjoyable part of the meal.

On the fourth visit we ordered the burgers and my girlfriend's came with a hair in it. We told the server (Nelson) who brought over the manager (Nicole). They wisked the plate away and brought her a new... More

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.
