“Great bartender, slow service. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We were camping at Mountain Lake Campground and ventured out for dinner one evening when we found this establishment. Not many people inside, numerous empty tables, and yet we were told it was a 30 minute wait. We decided to sit at the bar and wait on a table. While at the bar we went ahead and ordered food and drinks and never was addressed about a table available. Thankfully the bartender was very accommodating. Won't bring family here but may return with my partner.

“Not the greatest ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We ate at this Applebee's two years ago while driving through to South Carolina. Today was a much different experience. Service was VERY slow. When our food did arrive, my daughter's order was wrong . Server quickly admitted it was her fault but then brought the correct item out cold. Realizing this is a sit down restaurant, we didn't expect to be in and out but 90 minutes for pretty simple orders is a bit much. It wasn't even a crowded restaurant.

“Awful! Food was raw!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We used to eat here often but it has continuously went downhill. The service sucks! We sat forever waiting for the server to take our drink order and the place wasn't even busy. Then we got our buffalo wings and my husband cut into one and it was RAW! I will not be eating here again until things are changed.

“Better Food Quality than most Applebee's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stopped here before checking into our hotel. We weren't greeted right away, and it took some time for the hostess to figure out at which table to seat us. Our server was very friendly and greeted us right away. My husband ordered sweet tea, which the server said he brewed just a couple of minutes prior. My husband said the sweet tea was pretty good, actually. He ordered riblets, and said the sauce was better than any of the Applebee's he'd been to in Ohio. The women's restroom was clean, and the dirty tables were cleared off right away. For a chain, this location is solid.
