My major complaint in the past was music too loud. Jeanine, Mgr, took personal interest in my welfare and Emily and Ashley were very attentive servers. I ate here 3X in 2 days.

I had not been to an Applebee's in a few years and I was hesitant to eat here, but it was adjacent to the hotel I was staying at. The service was average, but the food was really good. They had made some majory changes to the menu since the last time I had been to an Applebee's. I was... More

Servers are actually good here. Food is typically crappy. Only came here for last resort. Decent steak and Ok sweet tea. Id return here because of the nice servers.

Applebee's in Matthews is predictable but consistently good in both food and service. Since she was 4, my granddaughter always asks for "Apples" when she has a choice. Their prices are also good.

First it's a chain so if it is average that's good, and above average would mean it has excellent service and something in food that set's it apart. This is like most Applebee's, so if you like Applebees you will probably think this one is OK, but not for me. Pro's - Located on Independence near several hotels (why I... More

The food was Applebee's food. It was served promptly and fresh and hot. The servers were helpful and friendly. They even turned the music down when we asked.

The fried pretzels in beer cheese were excellent. I would recommend coming back for that and drinking at the bar, then leaving. The food was nasty and tasted like it was frozen first, then microwaved. The kitchen area looked dirty as well. Applebee's needs to step it up in those areas to survive in this competitive market.

My friend and I were in there one day at lunch when a roach crawled across our table. If that wasn't bad enough, the manager acted like it was not a big deal. Did not offer us a discount on our food or anything. Just a to go box for food that the roach almost crawled into. Would never eat... More

Applebee's is a good food chain that seems to always give a good food product with moderate prices. I had the fried chicken salad, another had a burger and then another had a different salad. We all were full and liked the meal. Avg per person including tip was $12 at lunch on a Sunday.
