“A great place, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

My colleague and I were in Martinsville for two days on business. We had dinner at Applebee's on our last day in the town. While the food was great as usual, the service we received was terrible. The guy who attended to us seemed reluctant to make eye contact, was always in a hurry, and left us sitting unattended for most of the time we were there. We did report the incident to the manager, and he deeply apologized for the server's behavior.

“Alright for a chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

I had the vegetarian pizza. Although it was good, it wasn't great. The amount of pizza, also left a little to be desired for the cost. Pizza is supposed to be cheap. The ingredients weren't anything uniquely special, so I don't understand why it was so much. I had a mixed drink (White Russian), and it wasn't mixed that well either (watered down, and too much Kahlua). This was one sampling after a long time of not visiting any Applebees locations, so this might have been a freak incident of poorly made pizza and a new bartender. This particular location felt very "ghetto", and I was extremely uncomfortable with some of the other patrons. When I am eating, I don't want to over-hear graphic sex stories from a guy next to me who's underwear is sticking out; and the crotch of his pants are between his knees.

“Chain Restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We like their steaks & chicken entrees, Burgers would be good if they would change their buns. They use the buns that are like in sections & thats the way they end up all in pieces.
