Typical Applebees

I sat at the bar for dinner. The bartender was very sweet and provided great service. The food here was the exact same at every other Applebee's. But that's what I was looking for. I just wanted to go somewhere that I knew what to expect. The only difference in this Applebees.was the sewage... read more

We went here for lunch while I was in town for work and was slightly disappointed. It was not what I usually experience at Applebee's. Meals off of the lunch menu were much smaller than I've experienced at other Applebee's, while it was enough the presentation was not that good because my soup bowl was only half full and the...

If you live in Martinsville you know besides fast food there are not many dining choices. Over the past few years this Applebee's has done some nice remodeling that give the restaurant a nice atmosphere. Appetizers are half price after nine so I love to get some late night snacks. Went here to eat just last week and our waitress... More

The person taking my wife and myself to our table never spoke. The waitress was nice, however, I got cold riblets and I told her about. She offered to bring more, but the wait time would have been longer. I asked her to tell the manager, she never did. I find that unacceptable to serve cold ribs and sauce. The... More

Typical chain restaurant. Sat at the bar....husband had wings....said they were pretty good. Celery came with the wings....it was brown, not fresh at all. It was so cold in there, I had 2 sweaters on and we ended up leaving because of this.

Thoroughly enjoyed their Quesadilla Burger. Loved the crunchy flour tortilla for a bun and the burger itself was fresh and cooked perfectly. The cheese and toppings were tasty. My son said his cowboy burger was the "best burger" he has eaten. My response, "good, it should be for 9$." We were greeted by the manager and seated. Our server tended... More

The last three times I've visited Applebee's was very disappointing. The food is very good. The price is good. My last three visits have been for lunch. I LOVE the all you can eat soup and salad...if you can get your server to serve you and stop meandering. Twice the bartender has served me. She obviously uses her looks to... More

A very good option and full of variety! You can eat a good salad, a good rib, or a fantastic desearve. The attendents are kind and educated.Certainly a good option for a particular dinner or for a simple friday night dinner!

It was convenience to our hotel location. As a chain it served outstanding food. We will revisit when we return.
