We were the only people waiting to be seated and host never came, waited 5 mins to be sested. Host was rude, didn't even greet us. Waiter took order, food came, had to wait for utinsels, by the time we got them food was cold. The manager was busy hanging out at a table chatting. Table behind is received raw... More

Thank you all at Abblebee's very much for a wonderful meal! You helped make a very special evening for 2 birthday girls and a make-a-wish child! Now I get to look forward to a wonderful lunch with everything we didn't eat! Your staff was wonderful and we thank you for the extra attention and your gift! We'll send you pics... More

It was getting late for lunch and we needed to stop. Soooooo, we picked Applebee's because we had always had good meals in these locations. This one is not up to par. My wife had the "chicken fresh" which she said was "ok". I had the berry spinach salad and it was not good. The chicken strips were flavorless and... More

We stopped in at this Applebees on the way home from the Charlotte airport. The service was slow and the waitress said the manager let the others go home early. It was around 10:30. The food was just not great and it took for ever for us to get the beers we ordered. The bartenders were more interested in the... More

My wife and I went to this Applebee's late Saturday night. We weren't seated, the waitress just pointed and told us to get whatever table we wanted. After we seated ourselves Tiffany W. (Our waitress) came to take our order. We ordered coffee and tea with Splenda and our food order. She brought the drinks out but not the Splenda.... More

Thank you for the horrible music last evening Jessie. My friend and I went to their to get out of the house. When we arrived the music was extremely loud. The hostess greeted us promptly and got us seated. The music playing throughout our visit was vulgar. In all four songs the F word was dropped. When we said something... More

I was never really impressed with the Gastonia Applebees (service terrible especially) but now I see in the local newspaper (Gaston Gazette) the most recent health inspection score was 83...seriously, Applebees?? The writeup must have included 25 infractions, most as REPEAT violations!! Some of the findings were graphic and really turned my stomach. I have sent an email to their... More

Almost no one in the restaurant, and there is a reason for that. Poor waitress skills (who also acted as the hostess). Chili was served cold, waitress didn't know if there was a special for dinner, beer was flat. The waitress said they "didn't have all the ingredients" for a meal one person in my party of four ordered. My... More

We had been to this Applebee's before, but either the quality had deteriorated or our taste and expectations had gone up. The beer was flat, the food less than average, the atmosphere not so enticing.... but at least our waitress was nice.

the server started out nice, however, she changed very quickly when my burger came out 10 min after my family got their food! It was cold and had no flavor. How hard is it to cook a burger? My fiance's steak was dry and topped with a horrible sauce. Will never go back to this location again. Other loacations have... More
