We have been to several different Applebee's during our travels around the country and have always enjoyed our meals. This location has to be by far the worst Applebee's we have ever been to. Very Slow service, order was incorrect and the steak was hardly edible. (We ordered chicken) Corporate needs to do a review from top to bottom on... More

After eating most of our chips and spinach dip we they served it on a dirty plate. It had what looked like cheese stuck on it an some places. I almost threw up. Especially since our order didn't have any cheese in it. Then my silverware was nasty as well. I asked the person who brought our food about the... More

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat and drinks. You would think with a chain you know what you are getting. The food was acceptable, nothing to write home about but OK. What was the pits was the wait for anything that came from behind the bar. The place only had about 25-30% of the tables occupied and... More

After years of taking our local Applebee's for granted, we moved to a new location where we are not too close to one. While passing through New Bern, we decided to stop here because of the variety on the menu. (I was more hungry than my husband.) We were seated and waited upon very promptly. My husband ordered the spinach... More

Awful. Started by asking our server what vodkas and beers they offered. She said she didn't really know because she doesn't drink. She got lost going to ask n after taking our order the drinks were brought by the busser. We ordered salad and waited over 20 minutes for them. The table next to us waited at lest that long... More

This is not your typical Applebee's. They take forever to seat you and service is slow. On the day we visited there was only about four tables in there and it was 4 pm yet it took them ten minutes to seat us even though four waitresses walked by looking at the two of us. Nobody said "we'll be with... More

Food is typical American, and because we are from England we loved it. We were quickly seated when we arrived and our waitress was very good, even though she was new to the job. Ordered our food and drinks and it arrived on time and tasted very good, and the cold beer was ideal for a hot day in this... More

Being single, it is sometimes hard to find the perfect place eat. During lunch, I sat at the bar, ordered ice tea and ordered lunch. Everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome.

BELIEVE THE BAD REVIEWS BECAUSE THEY ARE TRUE! Went for a night out and chit chat with some friends. Chose Applebee's because Morgan's had an hour wait.
