Horrible sandwiches

We went Applebee's for lunch. Three of ordered the soup/salad or sandwich combo. Two weren't edible! The BLT had processed American cheese & the bread was burnt (and the cheese still didn't melt)! The bread was hard as a rock. The four cheese sandwich was also burnt with almost no cheese. The... read more

I avoid this Applebee's because it just isn't clean, the other customers are very loud, the food is not as good as the other Applebee's and the waitstaff seems anxious and unhappy. This review is not a one-time thing. I used to come in often when this Applebee's first opened because I like Applebee's food, generally, but gradually the food... More

We waited 45 minutes. We got to the table and no menus the waitress thought since we were waiting we already... More

This chain restaurant is typical chain food, but recently I discovered the flatbread pizza, which is pretty good. I usually just meet friends here for a night out, so I'm more interested in catching up with friends and don't worry too much about the wait or food.

Exceptionally slow service without a smile. The waitress forgot to place our food order and slowly moped around the restaurant not exactly doing anything except when it came to singing happy birthday to a nearby table. Obviously didn't understand our English accents when we asked for a glass of a particular wine and came back a few minutes later mumbling... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times over the years and have always liked it. I have always been pleased with the service and the quality of the food. And, if you are on their email list, they will email you coupons occasionally.

Over the years this was a great place to grab some pub grub with the family when our kids were in the 2-7 ranges. Service was usually prompt and the kitchen consistent. Was just fine for us , we never expected more than what an Applebees can and should provide. Then the chain was sold to the IHOP people and... More

Been here couple of times as it is "in the neighborhood". The food and service are average for this type of establishment. As usual - the bar bill can drive your expenses up so "just going out for the burgers" can easily wind up being a $50.00 :) Speaking of burgers though - the Bruschetta burger is very tasty.

We recently went to Applebee's in Jenkintown. It had just opened for the day. The bathrooms were sooo dirty my husband wouldn't let our kids go in. There were only 2 or 3 other guests in the restaurant and it took over 45 mins for our food to come. The food was awful, I had asked for a burger well... More

We were seated by the wait staff station, though there were other spots open. There we were treated to more carping, cursing, name calling, petty drama, back-biting and ineffective management than I have seen in a while. The food was overpriced and OK. The music was loud hip-hop that made ordering difficult shouting over the thumps and jangles. Never again.
