“The service was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

What can I say? Applebee's food is ok, sometimes even pretty good. The 2 for $20 menu is a bargain. I took my 83 year old mom there for dinner. The place was packed but we only waited 10 minutes. The "welcome" guy holding the door open was really friendly. It was funny to see my little old mom having such a nice conversation with a guy with piercings and tattoos. We did the 2 for $20, cajun chicken & shrimp and a 9oz steak and spinach/artichoke dip for appetizer. The dip was ok. Applebee's should really have one or two low-carb options for appetizers on the 2 for $20 menu. The cajun chicken and shrimp was good according to my mom. She said she really enjoyed it and the roasted potatoes that came with it. I had the 9oz sirloin steak with broccoli (no carbs). The steak was pretty good. I didn't expect it to be exceptionally tender but it was passable.

What struck me about Clifton Applebee's and the reason I'm taking the time to write this review, is the service. Our server, Nedda, was particularly good. I have been to some of the best steakhouses in the country and Nedda was the very first one to wait at the table and ask me to cut open my steak to make sure it was cooked to my liking. WOW! I was blown away, almost stunned. I think I stared at her for a second in disbelief. To her delight and mine the steak was cooked perfectly. Besides that, Nedda's attention to my mom & me was excellent considering how crowded it was there. She was really on-top of everything. I would definitely go back again

“Applebee's.......really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

Resturaunt review of Applebee's?

Top notch if you go for pre made, microwaved slop. I wouldn't feed this food to an animal.

So many decent places to eat in the Cifton area, why go for this garbage.
