Dined in for Lunch and had good experiences in many of the locations in the chain in the past. However the carpet did not look vacuumed well and the booths had large rips in the upholstery. I ordered the pick a pair lunch combo and chose The French Onion Soup and Chicken Tenders. I asked if I... read more

I planned this little dinner party for my mother weeks ahead and decided to call Applebee's to reserve a spot for 15 family members. Staff was wonderful on the phone and very professional. I even called to say we would be arriving later. We arrived and were greeted and seated with a smile. Everyone in my family enjoyed the staff... More

Normally our 'go-to' restaurant chain as service and food are usually good, this place was awful. Like a previous reviewer, no greeting, no thank you. Poor service on a Sunday evening, took ages for order to be taken - waitress more interested in talking to a friend in the next booth - both entrees unappetizing, same choices were nothing like...

Frozen strawberry lemonade was fantastic. Sirloin was a little tough. Seasonal veggies were mostly baby carrots. Loaded mashed potatoes were good but $1.99 to load NOT AGAIN. Kind of hidden behind other buildings and did not look open. Service excellent. Food was good.

First of all - doesn't look anything like the photo here. This is an "Applebee's Grille"; interior decor is different (scaled back); hostesses not as friendly as other Applebee's restaurants (no greeting when you walk in the door, no "thank you" when you depart). Restaurant lacked in the cleanliness department. Food was okay and we WOULD probably end up dining... More

Worst Applebee's in Washington! After reading reviews I think this location needs new cook and management. Our experience was horrible; day old bread/buns/pink/raw meat/ seasonless fries and served barely warm. Told waitress about the food, came back with check we paid and left. Filed complaint online Manager called (very defensive)said system down, waitress was new and it was a learning... More

We were in town for just a couple days and didn't know many places to eat. Since we were short on time we ordered food to-go and took it back to our hotel room. It was just fine. I mean this isn't a five star restaurant so it's exactly what I expected it to be.

The last two times we ate there, the food was poorly prepared. If you want to hang out and drink at the bar and watch TV I guess it's OK, but don't go for the food.

I went to this place with coworkers for supper and our server was Caesar. I ordered the garlic shrimp sirloin and asked to have the veggies replaced with rice pilaf and keep the herbed potatoes. When my plate arrived it had veggies and pilaf, no potatoes. So I asked our server if he could get me the potatoes. He brought... More
