I don't understand why this chain exists

Something about the atmosphere gets on my nerves. If it's a place you enjoy anywhere else in the country then you'll like this one. Service was slow to get us a bill, but food was verging on good and up promptly. What perplexes me the most is the youngster patrons at the bar; it seems like the bar... read more

Had the fish, chicken and sampler. Was not sure what to expect and pleasantly surprised. On time delivery, correct items, nice temperature and very good taste. Would do again.

The new burgers are excellent and the fries are the best. I ordered a soda and it tasted bad. Told the server she got me another of the same kind, still tasted bad. They didn't offer to fix the machine or anything, so I wound up drinking something else (that wasn't my first choice). As much as they charge for... More

My daughters and I have stopped several times at Applebee's. Usually for their apps. This past Saturday we decided to get a bite to eat. We were sat immediately. We waited for over 20 minutes. Servers passed by, no one took our drink or food order. We finally got up to leave and were wished a good day. I asked... More

Loved everything - great service and great menu options at a great price! The service is excellent! We have been there on several occasions and have always had a fantastic experience.

I'm not sure why this location has such low ratings. Maybe I've always gotten good service because either I or someone I am with knows the server. This is probably my favorite Applebee's location due to the long islands being $1.99 every day, which a great deal compared to their regular price drinks. Some of my favorites here are the... More

This place we have had multiple issues with in the past. It's been a good 6 months since I ate there so with their rib special we decided to try again. Big mistake. Waitress didn't seem like she cared, never smiled, and when the food took forever to come she not never came back. Update: the manager brought out the... More

Ate here for lunch to celebrate a family birthday. They set us up in the "sun room" area where we could push a number of tables together. The staff was very helpful and the food was good. In a convenient location just of the highway and a central location for all the family attending. I had the bacon cheeseburger and... More

Applebee's is a good choice if there is a mobility problem. There are two exits and a person can easily use one of the two. They are also good at getting a table close to a bathroom or the door if requested. This evening we were celebrating our mothers birthday. Her food looked delicious and she ate almost all of...

First of all, I didn't expect much from Applebee's to begin with. We just moved here in January, the first night after arriving we decided to order online. I got a strawberry lemonade with my meal & the only option available was a 32oz. When we showed up there was no hostess by the door & no one approached us... More
