Slow service

It's Applebee's so I now not to expect much but the service was subpar to say the least. It was a Monday so it wasn't very busy. Some people were training so that's a factor, I understand. BUT, drinks stayed empty too long and food was staggered on arrival. 5 minutes plus a part. But it's... read more

We arrived at Applebees in transit from Myrtle Beach to our hotel in Woodstock, VA. Seated at 7:50pm and our server took our drink order. She arrived back with our drinks at 8:05 and took our food order - no appetizers, just main courses. We then sat and watched as people around us, many of whom arrived after us, were... More

I was in town on business, traveling alone, seated at a table quickly. It took a bit longer than necessary to take my order. The food was good, although it did come different than I ordered, the waitress was kind. One tui ng that bothered me - I ordered an alcoholic beverage and wasn't carded (35 female), the Hispanic family... More

This restaurant was almost within walking distance of our hotel. We had a nice dinner; good food, good service. Would stop in here again.

Service was very slow considering they weren't busy, took 90 minutes for lunch. It was a bad weather day but no excuse for the slow service because there were more employees than customers.

Ate here as next to hotel. Food was good and service was if anything over attentive, but the waitress was young. Would certainly visit again.

We eat at this restaurant when we stop in Lexington on our way to Florida. It is walking distance from the hotel so we don't have to get back in the car after our long drive. The food is okay and if there were other choices of restaurant within walking distance I would try them out. Service was friendly but... More

Rude manager. Food is terrible. Lowest rated Applebee's in VA. It's a good thing they have hotels within walking distance because the locals have given up on it.

Went here despite bad reviews as it was next to hotel and we were tired of driving in fog and rain. Well, was I surprised! We ordered the 9oz house sirloin and it was one of the best I have had in years. Medium with pink all the way through -- the flavor and texture were perfect. we have been... More

There is really great food at this place. The appetizer sampler to share is great. Also burgers are cooked perfectly. The waitress refills you the drink before you finish it so that you will always have a drink while eating. She gave us take away cups for the drinks too. Good prices.
