it's a chain they're all the same. You're been the one, you've seen it before, you had it before. Menu stays mostly the same every now and then a new item or two, but usually it's the same. Quality so so, service so so, portion size so so prices so so. It's a hit or a miss and all depends... More

I recently went out for an early dinner to my local Applebee's. As with previous experiences the service was slow even though they were less than half full and the food was bland and tasted old and frozen. They really need to address these two issues. I doubt I will eat there again. Not to mention the food total for... More

Food, drinks and service all good! I sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I asked for something that was no longer on the menu and they made it for me.

I was inspired to write this review because of the ones I just read, We go to Applebees at least once every 2 weeks when we are in town. Once I sent my steak back and the second was almost the same....so now I just order the ribs! Everyone is always nice and friendly. When my mother was alive I... More

While I often eat at Applebee's and the food seems to be consistent between the different restaurants the service certainly isn't nor is the cleanliness. I feel comfortable saying that the bathrooms at the Elizabeth City Applebee's are dirtier than those on a Saturday afternoon in the Walmart! And they are always in need of some type of maintenance. After... More

The Service was slow,( even not many were there) the food was very average and they did not get our orders right. I would not recommend this to others, as for it being good can be a chance taken. I have eaten there before and it was your typical applebees. Years back it would get my recommendation.

On my survey form: The wow factor here was "wow, I can't believe how horrible the food was presented, the slowness of the appetizer, and the general malaise of the staff!" Every time I visit this establishment I have a complaint - slow service, inattentiveness, cold food, unappetizing food, manager/host(ess) that doesn't care. Today was the icing on the cake... More

Applebee's restaurants are pretty much the same wherever you travel, that's why my wife and I like them. They offer similar food, from pretty good to very good, similar drinks and similar reasonable prices. So what distinguishes one Applebee's from another? Excellent service. In Elizabeth City for one night, we tossed a coin: a nearby Applebee's (my wife's choice) or... More
