“Chain food, slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Typical chain food, service while friendly seemed slow. Not hard to find with directions from hotel. Look for the HAMPTON INN, it's sort of behind it.

“Applebee's in Hazard needs help!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The service was poor and slow. I ordered the club sandwich with fries. The bread was soaked in greasy butter. I ended up eating the filling with a fork and knife and pushed the greasy bread off to the side. The fries were cold.

“Applebees was a good place to meet and eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Delicious food and excellent service. We actually ate there two nights in a row and had a wonderful meal both days. Great variety on the menu and friendly waitresses.

“Waiting to be Wowed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Applebees always has such a nice decor, but somehow the food never lives up to the billing. Have eaten here several times and have never been impressed. Every time I go back, I keep hoping that things have changed, but alas, it just comes out average. I will never order another steak at Applebees ever. The other menu items are much better than the steaks.

“Cheerful Atmosphere Horrendous Dining”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

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.
