Our friends and us decided to go out for dinner on a Sunday evening after cleaning up all weekend from Hurricane Matthew. Our regular spots were closed on Sunday so we thought we would give Applebee's another try. I say 'another try' because we have been disappointed several times in the past. Poor service, poor management, crowded and dirty. This... More

Would go more often, but always a long wait for a table. Two for 20 a great deal, when we get 2 entrees and an appetizer to share, all for $20. Service good, once you're seated.

Typical Applebee's and can get very crowded on weekends due to the few options in the area. The staff is usually pretty good, sometimes we've run into really slow servers but that is any restaurant.

I have just returned from eating dinner here. It took forever to get the food, get the check and get the returned card receipt. Not reason for this as the restaurant was nearly empty. Small issues also noted-no pickle on a hamburger appetizer plate that was shown in the photo, wrong drink applied to a different check. But the wait... More

Had a business dinner here on a Wednesday night. Place was nearly empty. Seated immediately by a cheerful hostess. Our waiter was new on the job, only his third day, he told us, but did a really great job. Took very good care of us, keeping our drinks full, getting the appetizers and entrees out quickly. Boneless Buffalo Wings were... More

I ate at this particular Applebee's on the way home from a business trip in Hampton, VA. I usually do not choose Applebee's restaurants but since my choices were limited I decided to give this location a try. I sat at the bar since it was crowded on a Sunday evening. The bartender, Jami was quick to come introduce herself... More

This place stays open relatively late for Elizabeth City, NC. It seems to be popular with young people. The food was typical for a chain restaurant which for strangers in a small town was a good thing. Our very young waitress seemed tired and disinterested. It was convenient, not a great experience.

We went here yesterday afternoon for some lunch with our friends. Upon arrival the host held the door open for us which was nice. He sat us and our server Kendra came right over to greet us. She got our drink order and gave us some time to look at the menu. The menu had changed a bit since we... More
