I had only been to this Applebees once before and it was excellent! On this trip for starters, the table top had been wiped down with a stinky rag and the odor remained. It was also quite sticky. Our server was very nice but the food was horrible! My Oriental chicken salad was drowning in dressing and the chicken was... More

When we go to Applebee's they're always accommodating of the amount of people we have. We always end up there after swim meets & there are tons of people there. Luckily it doesn't take long!

Good pours, LOUSY wifi. Nice folks, average and predictable food. We come for the $4 happy hour specials during the week. HATE THE NASTY WICKER GERM PLATES.

Had dinner here while visiting Cortland. Service was very friendly, albeit a little slow. Food and drinks were very good. Nice atmosphere for a small family gathering

I travel a lot for business and always eat at Applebee's. So I came to this one Sunday night when I needed to stay in Cortland. I got apps and ordered the brew house chicken. I've ordered it before and was really good. I wait almost 10 min for someone to come and ask if I wanted a drink. Then... More

On business in Cortland, New York I decided to order to-go dinners from Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar which is conveniently located right down the street from the hotel where I was staying. At the end of two very long work days I called Applebee’s and ordered the same meal twice not wanting to make any more decisions and knowing... More

Haven't been here in a while and decided to try i again. Was not disappointed. They had a few new dishes on the menu and I had the crispy chicken with stout gravy. It was super. Our waitress, Victoria M, was the best waitress we have ever experienced, She was friendly, funny, knowledgeable and so helpful.

We have dined here many, many times, and most times the service and food has been very good. Last night was the exception. We were charged full price for two appetizers, which were supposed to be 2 for $9.99. When this issue was brought to the attention of our server, no attempts to fix the problem were made and we...
