“A great place to unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

It was late Sunday evening and my husband and I had completed a 1300 mile drive and a visit with family which included meeting a new grandson. We were tired but wound up but didn't know the area well enough to know where to go. After driving on every main road we could think of looking for a late-night spot we saw Applebee's tucked in at one of the Roanoke Mall's. The atmosphere was perfect for what we were seeking. Our server, Alyssa, greeted us and made us feel so welcome. She recommended an appetizer which turned out to be just what we needed to take the edge off the day. She was interested in where we were from and was very helpful in giving us some tips for our stay in Roanoke. I can't speak to the foods on the main menu - but the appetizer we had was terrific and the service was perfect!

“Ladies bring your own toliet paper”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Same, like all the other Applebee's. Nothing special. Food was good but not special. TVs were on for the bar. The women's bathroom needed cleaning at 12:30 in the afternoon.

“Typical Applebees”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

The food quality is nothing special. The steaks are horribly over spiced with way too much salt. You can't get a baked potato with your steak because they don't have them. Makes you wonder how they make garlic mashed potatoes. This place is more of a place to hangout before or after a movie. I wouldn't eat here.
