Typical Applebees, food was fine, but I was surprised at how the hostesses were arguing over who was going to walk us 50 feet to our table. Similar argument with the servers, it took a while to get served because they couldn't decide who would wait on us. Once it was resolved, our server was great, but what happened to... More

The orders were also correct and portions big enough for two. the... More

This is located by hotels, and local highways. The food is your standard Applebee menu. So if you've been to one you've been to them all. The place is clean and I've never had to wait.

We dine at Applebee restaurants occasionally and usually in the evening. We have always been pleased by the quality and value of the servings. One downside is that generally there is a lot of noise but it should be expected in a sports bar evening environment. We stopped in at Applebee's on Churchman's Road in Newark De on Saturday afternoon... More

Working lunchSouthern steak salad, but not the chicken. I had the chicken one day and it tasted hard, rubbery and just not good. Like it wasn't fresh or a bad cut of chicken if there is such a thing. Unfortunately I sent the whole chicken back to the trash with no greens. I suppose I should have complained, but you... More

I usually get the Thai Shrimp Salad when I visit Applebee's in my hometown. I got it here too - and it was BETTER. They had a larger salad base and used carrot/broccoli slaw in addition to lettuce. Delish.

Tried to order online with two different devices. No luck. Restaurant says that their website never works. This meant that we (and presumably everyone else) missed out on the $5 discount offer. Ribs most have been from the smallest pig ever seen with about 1/8th of an inch of meat on the bones which was made even worse by being... More

On our way down and up from Florida we stayed at the Hampton Inn right next to Applebee’s on Churchman and both time we stopped there for dinner. Food is good, and value is exceptional. Shawn took care of us those two times, and he gave an excellent service. He is nice, polite and professional and he gives good recommendation... More
