“Better than the average Applebee's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Pretty standard Applebee's menu but this place seems to do better with service than others. I appreciate that they will substitute a salad for the perfectly awful cole slaw. They charge a buck but that's fine.

“Take out should have been left out... Steak and shrimp in the takeout container was overcooked and cold by the time it was given”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Not sure how the food at this Applebees usually turns out but I wouldn't recommend their takeout... The restaurant wasn't busy but they seemed rather put out doing take out so that I could get back to work... Apparently they left the food at the bar in the take out container. It seemed as if it was left over from lunch and served very steamed til all char was off the steak... It was overdone and a soggy cold mess. It may have been under 550 calories but it was nearly a day's worth of sodium. Definitely not worth $15... I would have been better off at McDonalds or Subway...

“A Place to Eat for Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

The menu has more choices than other chains I've been to. Everything seems to be flavored just right, not too spicy (unless so ordered) and not bland. Their ribs are excellent - my favorite. The salads are well portioned, as is the main course. I like the posted calories (not that I have to worry), such as they symbolize meals that are 500 calories or less, "weight watchers". They have deserts for $2 called "Shooters" - perfect size! Service was very pleasant, personable and efficient - they truly aim to please (smiles all round).

“dont go alone”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

Anyone ever been to the Applebee’s in Dublin GA, let me tell you how this neighborhood restaurant treats it neighbors. A few weeks ago a close friend of mine was in this restaurant and was maliciously over served by the bartender then lured out side and attacked by two guys. The saddest part of this whole thing is how the restaurant tried to cover up this crime by not reporting it to police that night. However the bartender did continue serving this girl until she passed out in her car. Once the young girl realized what had happened to her she reported the events to the police. That’s when the bartender from Applebee’s tried to intimidating the young girl into not pressing charges that may cause the manager or the bartender to loose their jobs. I am not saying not to go to Applebee’s I am saying don’t let your children go unattended. One questions how come the media has not released this story?
