“Could be cleaner and better organized.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

The food was exactly what we expected from Applebee's -- good for a large party all wanting something different. The hostess accommodated our large group (9) quickly. Service was slow, to the point we wondered if appetizers would arrive with our main dishes. We sat near the kitchen and were "entertained" with dishes dropping on the floor, servers colliding with each other and lots of screaming back and forth. The kitchen did not look well-managed. Also, the floor was quite a mess throughout the restaurant, including the bathrooms. We stayed because it was late and we knew everyone could find something to eat. Otherwise, we would have left for someplace cleaner.

“Good prices, friendly staff, and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

On our last night in Williamsburg we were just in the mood for some plain fare after having indulged in rich food for 2 full days. Our poor waitress was covering for someone who was running late, and was a bit frazzled. But the manager came over took our order from memory, and aplogized for any delay. We didn't mind anyway, but it was nice. I ordered a chicken dish with a cream sauce and red peppers. It was a good size portion, and with the salad it was very filling.

“Busy and Noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We went to this Applebee's after leaving another restaurant for non-service. The restaurant an was very busy and noisy. We were seated, told who our server was and that he would be with us shortly. We waited 5 minutes without anyone greeting us and no sign of our server. We stopped another server on her way by our table and asked her to let our server know that we had been waiting several minutes. Our server arrived shortly and was attentive for the remainder our our visit. My order wasn't completely correct (Honey-BBQ wings instead of Hot wings). The busyness and noise of the restaurant was a little too much for our two year old guest. We left we most of his food in a to-go container.
