Perhaps it was the fact that the restaurant was closing in 3 hours or maybe it was the fact that they were understaffed, whatever the reason, nothing could excuse the abysmal service and dining experience that awaited this diner on a recent visit.
Almost an hour after ordering a salad for my meal it was delivered. The wilted and sparsely dressed spinach tasted dirty and the grilled shrimp were so tiny that they seemed to be shrimp miscarriages, not fully developed prawns.
The uneducated wait staff disappeared altogether after having to have the term "breading" explained to her when asked if their wings were breaded.
Drinks went unfilled past the original order and the total lack of care from the kitchen staff was evident in the plating of the main courses.
The hefty price attached to such trifling preparation was insulting, even more than the last minute plea for a dollar donation to the Humane Society (to which I donated having just experienced cruelty myself).
Skip Applebees, it is rotten to the core.
