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

The issue was inconsistency, She did not ask other customers for their when they sat. I wen to get my I.D. and was approached by... 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

Sat at the bar. The girl at the bar was the worst ever. Took my order and basically never came back. Thank god for the other bartender. He was helpful and attentive. Usually I always have pleasant service at Applebee's, but not this time .

Since Applebee's was right next door to our hotel, and we love the Applebee's near our home, we thought it would be a great choice for dinner after a long drive. We were wrong. The server was asked simple questions that she did not know the answer to, forgot things like the water we asked for, did not check on... More
