“Hope you like to hear cursing with dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I've visited restaurants in the Applebee's chain all over the country (it's my default when I don't know the area and want something quick, plus they have the best deal in salad around), and they do vary quite a bit, from quiet and cozy family oriented to sports bars, but this is the first one I've been to that has people at the bar swearing at what sounds like the top of their lungs, although the conversation was not hostile at all. No matter the topic, each sentence seemed to be accompanied by at lest one use of the F word, freely mixed with a variety of other obscenities. Not the place to take your kids.

Brad S, Public Relations Manager at Applebee's Wytheville, responded to this review, October 21, 2012
Thank you for reviewing the Applebee's in Wytheville, VA! We love to hear from our guests. I apologize that the atmosphere during your most recent visit was not suitable for a family meal. While the restaurant cannot possibly moderate all conversations that our bar guests may have, it is our job to notice if any vulgar language is unusually loud or obnoxious and/or disturbing to other guests in the restaurant. I apologize that on this particular day, we failed to take notice and take action to make your visit more enjoyable. While I am sure this is an isolated incident, should any future issues of this nature arise, I encourage you to notify the manager on duty. I will share your feedback with this location to encourage our managers to be more aware of the language and/or conversations our guests have that may disturb others. If you have additional and/or specific comments, I invite you to contact our franchise at 888-497-3435. Thanks again for contacting us!

“Disappointing - not what I expect from Applebee's!”

Applebee's is usually clean - this one needs refurbished! Service was so-so. My food was ok but my husband's was good.

Thank you for your recent review of the Wytheville, VA Applebee's. I am interested in hearing specific feedback regarding any facilities or sanitation issues noted during your visit. Our franchise can be reached at 888-497-3435. Approximately two years ago, a partial renovation took place in the Wytheville restaurant where we replaced booths, chairs, plateware, and updated wall coverings. As we seek to invest more money in our restaurants in the near future, your input on what area(s) of the restaurant are in the greatest need of a remodel is appreciated. Myself and the senior leadership team depend on the feedback of our guests to determine the direction of renovations/remodels. I invite you to contact me via the above number and I will make sure to address any cleanliness issues and share your feedback regarding needed facilities improvements with our Director of Facilities.
