“Terrible all round!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Applebee's corporate needs to visit this disaster. I would say the staff certainly lacks training. They are clueless. Bartenders aren't capable of anything more than popping off a beer cap. Pouring a draft might actually stretch their abilities. Sent drinks back three times and they still couldn't get it right. Cook staff are a sleep. Food came out either lukewarm or fried to a crisp.
Bland unappetizing crap. I realize that Altus is a very small town and choices are limited, but one should avoid this places at all costs.

“Pretty Sad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Service is always slow and sometimes just painful. Very disorganized seating. Food very ordinary with garlic on everything. Makes one wonder what flavors the food really has?. Wait staff constantly asking if things "are great"...when glass is empty. Last time I ate there the knife was stuck to the napkin due to not being clean. Waitress removed, said she was going to "show the manager" and then never offered me a drink or salad or anything. I wish I had left at that point. Took about 30 minutes to get a salad....Very focused on selling alcohol over food.

“Hit and miss, mostly miss.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Service at Applebee's is usually slow. More often than not the food is luke warm and the wait staff's attention is focused on somewhere else.

Very convenient for Hampton travelers; varied menu options. However, 3 out of 4 nights, the service was awful!!
