Standard fare

But, no I mean butt. Please change the seating arrangement and stagger the hi tops in the bar area so that the small tables on the outside perimeter don't have biker crack (chained wallet and all) @ eye level 2 feet away.

It was getting late for lunch and we needed to stop. Soooooo, we picked Applebee's because we had always had good meals in these locations. This one is not up to par. My wife had the "chicken fresh" which she said was "ok". I had the berry spinach salad and it was not good. The chicken strips were flavorless and... More

We stopped in at this Applebees on the way home from the Charlotte airport. The service was slow and the waitress said the manager let the others go home early. It was around 10:30. The food was just not great and it took for ever for us to get the beers we ordered. The bartenders were more interested in the... More

Thank you for the horrible music last evening Jessie. My friend and I went to their to get out of the house. When we arrived the music was extremely loud. The hostess greeted us promptly and got us seated. The music playing throughout our visit was vulgar. In all four songs the F word was dropped. When we said something... More
