The food was amazing. Staff was friendly. They had some karaoke at one point. That was great entertainment.

Had an unusually good meal last night while visiting their local Applebee. We frequent Applebee s a lot at home, so we felt it was,a good choice when traveling. Splurged a little with two good appetizers, the pot lockers and the shrimp in some kind of spicy sauce. Both very good with generous portions. My main, a delicious chicken with... More

The menu seemed less extensive than the one at home, and the service was a little slow. The food was good but nothing special. However, the restaurant was next to our hotel, and we could walk to it.

This was the usual Appleby's. They are always good. The restaurant was located next to the hotel so was convenient. There are very few restaurants near this hotel, but we were happy to see Appleby's.

We go to our local Applebee's quite often so when we received our meals, we thought they made a mistake because the servings were so small that we went to the Dairy Queen next door to have dessert because we figured that the desserts would be small also. It was a little disappointing.

This past Monday my family and I stopped at Applebee's for lunch. We were a little disappointed to see some of the changes. The unlimited featured lunches are gone. There are only a few dietetic choices and Applebee's has dropped it's reward program. The service was good. The food items were small, but tasty. This restaurant just does not stack... More

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 Applebee's. Food was ok,... 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
