Very cold table, not so good service food it's great.

They sit us in the corner in front of the small dirty brooms room (northeast corner of the restaurant). Was very cold I thing because the air vent it's over the table. The table was wet I had to ask to someone to clean the table. And I have to ask for every drink for a refill. But the food... read more

Yummy food, good casual atmosphere and AWESOME service- thanks, Marissa! We have not been here in a while but my favorite Asian chicken salad was still on the menu, $10 bottle of wine was still on special, and our waitress Marissa was outstanding!~ each chain we visit is only as good as the management: congratulations, Conner! really enjoyed this meal!

I frequent this Applebees location often, and the service and food are consistently good in my opinion. The food is always fresh and served hot. The atmospehere is nice, like a friendly neighborhood pub. We always take advantage of the 2 for 20 or 20 for 25 meals as they come with an appetizer or two salads depending on your... More

My first and last time here or at any Applebee's. My hubby and I ordered the 2 for $25.00. Neither plate of food was appealing or looked anything like they advertise on TV or on the menu. Our 5 little chunks of roasted potatoes were hard and overcooked. I ordered a small steak and it was way overdone and to... More

I charged our meals on my credit card. When the credit card bill came it was higher than the amount on the receipt. When I called Applebees, they said they had problems with other people too and just gave me an 800 number to call. When I called the number I got to listen to recorded music for 15 minutes... More

I put this change on my credit card. When I received the monthly bill the amount was over the amount on my receipt. When I called the restaurant I was told they had computer problems and someone would call me back. After two days with no callback, I again called and spoke with the manager. She again said they had... More

The Roma steak looked good on the menu but when it came out there was liquid everywhere on the plate. Not the semi red run you would get with a piece of meat cooked to medium.. It was overcooked and I'm not sure what they did to it to do that to the entire plate. The mushroom was okay. The... More

Even though it's been in the neighborhood for year's, this was my 1st visit! We arrived at 5:55 p.m. on a Saturday , just as the dinner crowd was beginning to arrive. We only waited 4 mins to be seated. Service was quick and the server had two runner's that apparently their job is to insure speed is attained in... More

We left another restaurant in a neighboring town due to poor service. Applebee's was crowded with a wait. We were told 20 minutes. We found a seat and had barely sat down when they called my name. Server was prompt and brought wife's drink though my coffee was delayed a few minutes. We ordered an apetizer followed by the Bourban... More
