Worth a trip if in the area

It was such a good value; we visited twice in the same week. The “new” menu is a hit, low calories, good food. The menu has a wide selection and preparation, in general is pretty good. The wait staff attempts to be efficient and service is probably better than most in the area. Great atmosphere.

I ordered the lunch combo special which was $8.99 for soup and salad. The French onion soup was delicious. I would highly recommend that. But I got a grilled chicken Caesar salad with it and that I would not recommend. It was literally a few pieces of lettuce. All in all it was ok. I would go back just for... More

My wife and I stopped here on Friday afternoon, Oct.23, 2015. We were seated immediately. A waitress appeared right away and took our drink orders. My wife ordered us an appetizer, which was delivered promptly. Only one problem, the waitress never delivered any plates to put our portions on! The waitress could not be found afterward. When our main courses... More

Any restaurant at the Pittsburgh Mills is busy during the weekend. However, we opted to head over to Applebee’s on a Monday around 4:15pm. Definitely before any dinner rush. When we walked in, the restaurant had maybe 10 tables seated, and 3 employees at the hostess stand. They all just gave us a glance and finally one took the initiative... More

Applebee's is one of the better chain restaurants in my opinion. This location has very good service and good food. You're immediately welcomed by the hostess and seated as quickly as possible. The tables are clean and our waitress was very attentive. The bar area was very busy and everyone there seemed pleased. We like to order from the "2... More

Oh, boy. I always ordered the Burbon Street Steak. Just loved it. I was there the other evening and when they brought out my dinner I did not even recognize it as what I ordered and told my waiter I thought she had brought me the wrong meal. She explained that they had changed their steaks for that dish. Then... More

In the past 18 months Applebee's food & service, in my opinion, have gone downhill a bit. My wife & I used to go to the Applebee's in the Mills Mall complex in Tarentum PA about once a month. We have not been there in 7 months. The last time we were there we had a waitress who offered everyone... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch at Applebee's before going to a movie. The waitress was friendly and did a good job. The shrimp and broccoli cavatappi was totally flavorless in a runny unseasoned mess of a sauce. The Napa Chicken was also seasoned improperly and covered with mushy overcooked vegetables. I have eaten at other Applebee's and am... More
