I'm not a fan of chain restaurants, but I was tired after a long day at the Horse Complex and looking for a quick and easy meal. I ordered a "Guinness" and the fish and chips, which arrived quickly and were rather greasy -- not great, not good, just average (or a little below). The service was good, especially considering...

First off, I should say "eat here." The staff was terrific. There was a mix-up in our order, but they actually caught it & gave us FREE DESSERTS all around to make up for it! More than generous. It was very crowded when we were there. Many people were waiting for about 30 minutes, so try to get here "off... More

Just across from the motel, this was the best choice for us. The service was good, the food typically American.

the hostess was rude and would not allow us to sit in a booth even though there were several booths available. The waitress was very nice, and the food was cooked properly

Matter of fact this is perhaps the worst run unit I have seen in some time. I am a retired restaurateur with an extensive background in all aspects of the industry. From start to finish my first and last visit to this poorly managed store was an affront to my mind. The hostess was overwhelmed with a broken glass of... More

Lession #1 always read TripAdvisor reviews before trying a restaurant. .. Failing to do so can result in loss of time, patience and apatite. As was our experience at the lexington VA applebees. We lost our patience waiting for a server. After 20 minutes and 3 requests our server finally showed up trailing a trainee. I was disappointed to find... More

A waitress quit during her shift which left the other staff scrambling. Food was overcooked (steak and burgers) and not hot. It was a busy weekend - pretty hectic in there. Will say, however, we have eaten there before and not had issues.

We have eaten in quite a few Applebee's throughout the US and this is one of the better one's. The service was quick and efficient and the food was well cooked and presented. Above standard for a chain restaurant/

I ordered my steak medium and it came out very well done. I ordered a frozen drink and then after about a 15 minute wait my server came and informed my they had just broken the frozen drink machine....why didn't they just borrow a blender from the kitchen.

Sit at the bar. Bartender acted like I was crazy for asking for an apple cider. She said they didn't have them then walked off, not bothering to see what else I wanted. Ordered the 2 for $10.99 and asked if I could have a salad off of there before my meal as well. They brought the salad, three bites... More
