“Blah”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This Applebees was interesting.
First we were told we couldn't sit where we wanted to because "that waitress is overwhelmed" when everywhere was busy then the floor was filthy to the point the host said "sorry about the mess,we have had a lot of kids in here today"
Our waitress was nice but the serving staff looked so sloppy in dirty shirts and jeans.
Our meals were average,my husbands was wrong but the waitress said it was what he ordered. For the record,he would NEVER order boneless wings so we all knew he didn't order them.
We were supposed to get 10% off our bill for showing our key card from our hotel but we had to ask twice for it to be removed from the bill.
All in all it was probably the best place to go close to the hotel but I'm wondering how clean the kitchen was......

“Just an average Applebees.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

In my opinion Applebee's as a whole has slipped in the past few years, no consistency from restaurant to restaurant.

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

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 via mobile

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.
