Slow service

We just ordered sandwiches with three quarters of the restaurant empty and it took over 45 minutes to get them. Our waitress expresses how busy she was so they must have been short staffed. Food was good but we never got our drinks refilled. Disappointed this visit.

The food was good-but the service was mediocre-for an Applebee's I would have expected better. This is the fault of the current management. they are supposed to be walking the floor-checking if food and service was OK and that never happened! I had to ask to speak to a manager to complain about the lack of attention and the long... 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.

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 they go... More

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
