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

Food was pretty good. Better than I remember Applebee's being. Giving this five stars solely on the attentiveness of the waitress. I'm going to see if anyone in our group remembers her name, but she was very refreshing in a world of indifferent restaurant staff.

This is by far the worst Applebee's we have EVER been to. The hostess was absent when we walked in. Waited a full two minutes for anyone to acknowledge we were there. When the hostess showed up she made us feel like we were bothering her. The Waitress Darnell M was fantastic, very competent, fast and friendly. The others that... More

Excellent Service and good food was enjoyed by my wife and I in the early afternoon. Due to the time of day it was a quiet setting. Very enjoyable.

We were staying at the hotel next door with a puppy and had to do take out. The restaurant was rocking busy and at first the young lady behind the bar told me I had to wait for someone to come take my take out order. I ordered a Margarita and said no hurry. Within minutes she warmed up and... More

I have eaten at many, many Applebee's and have put up with less than stellar service occasionally at this chain. But I never have experienced service as bad as my wife and I had here. After we were seated, out waitress, who was working at the most 3 tables beside our's, spent 10 minutes assiduously completely avoiding any eye contact... More

Visiting my hometown with my cousin from LA and on the first day, went out to Applebee's for a drink and some appetizers, late that afternoon. What a great experience. We sat at the bar where the waitress was the best. She knew the beer selections including local ale's and recommended a local beer that was outstanding. We ordered a... More

The food was typical Applebee fare, which is to say just okay. The music was too loud for my tastes. The service was slow at times, mostly because there were not enough wait staff for the number of people in the restaurant. I prefer the Ruby Tuesday in Lexington.

My wife and I had supper here and we found the salmon to be over grilled, the French fries were cold hard and over salted. The restaurant was way understaffed and tables were left uncleared during our whole meal yet there was a line up trying to get seated. The waitress misplaced my Visa card which caused a bit of...

We were seated immediately by the hostess but our waitress was to busy chatting with another table that she never came to even take a drink order. My husband had to go get the hostess and tell her we wanted to see our waitress and order some food. When the food finally came, it wasn't very good. A very disappointing... More
