“Worth a try again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had quit visiting this Applebee's because it always reeked of cigarette smoke, but this is no longer the case. The food was good (typical Applebee's fare) and the service was very good. We will put this place back on our list of places to eat.

“Top Waiter On-Board Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

As my wife and I sat down our waiter, "Taylor" came up, smiled and called off what we usually have to drink and then asked if he was correct? He certainly was and we were quite impressed due to the fact that we dine there just occasionally. He even mentioned a person we had visited with on a prior occasion. Having a waiter or waitress that is that in tune with his/customers is quite impressive!

“Great choice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I've never had a bad experience at this place. I love the food, they have excellent specials all the time, and over all I liked the atmosphere. The servers are friendly, and I had no complaints.

“A bad Apple”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Abundance of staff when we visited, but no service. People arrived after us were served before us. Air conditionin way too cold. Staff disappeared for 15 minutes. Eventually food served. One order was completely wrong. Steaks ordered medium rare and served well cooked. With so much competition in the Lufkin area they need to remove the worm from the apple to stop it rotting right away, but then is Applebees really a family restaurant or should it be called Applebar and just cater for the drinkers and not people looking for a good meal.

“NOT a place to take your family!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I took my family there on a Saturday night over spring break. It was around 9:30 -10:00pm. The food was the only thing that was acceptable. They have absolutely NO control over the bar section. There was a fight while we were there and it was soooo obvious to see that 75% of the people in the bar were over served: yelling, stumbling, and tripping over people. The seats in the bar area were completely full yet there were people standing all around( basically on top of each other) spilling their drinks and acting belligerent. The reputation for "family resteruant" has been completely tarnished. It's more like a trashy nightclub without bouncers. I would strongly suggest going somewhere else if you are looking for a decent, relaxing time. If your into drug addicts and people strictly there to party without care, then that's your spot! Absolutely horrible!!!
