Two months went by and we decided to give it another shot. All new faces and stubborn manager never stepped in. Slow service, food order, food to table, no drink refills and slow check to table. This is just a poor place to eat in the area. No one working there seem to care or wanted to be there. There... More

My fiancé and I were in the Blowing Rock/Boone area for a business trip which led to us frantically searching for a quiet place we could eat a good meal late at night that wasn't a bar. We came in late (approx 11pm) and we were pleasantly surprised that we didn't have to order of a "late night" menu, but... More

Our party of 4 decided to dine at the Applebee's in Boone, NC. As soon as we walked into the restaurant we were told with no wait that it might be awhile - only 13 tables were occupied. It was very bad service but the food was average and small portions on the plate were key turn offs. Our server... More

My husband and I JUST left this Applebee's and I have to say, this is by far the best experience we have ever had at one. Our server was good. Very nice. But it was the experience we had with another server there named Sam or "David Bowie" according to his name tag:) this location apparently very recently added a... More

We visited Applebee's recently for a late lunch. The restaurant was clean and tidy, the host and server were friendly and attentive. Service was great. We had their "2 for $20" special, which included choice of several appetizers or two salads (we had salads, fresh and tasty) and choice of several main dishes. We had a Quesadilla Burger and the...

The service was quick and efficient and the food was great. You can't go wrong with the 2 for $20 or 2 for $25 menu options either. Very affordable.

My wife and I were in Boone, NC for a mini ski vacation and decided to eat here. We were immediately seated and shortly afterwards the server received our order. My wife ordered steak and I ordered the full rack of ribs. According to my wife her steak had good flavor but was somewhat tough. My full rack of ribs... More
