I will never be going to the location ever! Food was over cooked, I mean everything. For it to not be busy at that time, it was horrible! Then the system went down and the manager on duty at the time, had no damn clue or even seem to care what the hell was going on. There is another down... More

Our experiences with Applebee's have been good at multiple locations in the Carolinas. We stopped for a quick lunch while on the road. We like that we can get seated and served quickly, even if that means opting to sit at the bar. There are lighter fare options, a choice not always present with pub food. Service was quick and...

The only reason for going to an Applebee's is if one is on the road and there is nowhere around any better. This one was poorer than most. Yes, the staff were pleasant, but oh so amateurish. The food was 'average' to 'not that good'. What really put us off was that the staff did not bother to clean tables... More

We decided to have dinner here, because it was close to our hotel. My last few visits to an Applebee's have been poor. This one was also poor. We for seated right a way and our waitress and waitress in-training quickly came to the table. After that service went downhill. It took awhile for our food to come out and... More

We took our 3 grandsons and 1 of their friends here on Fri. 8/21/15. We arrived before 8:00 pm. First impression was that the place could stand some freshening up. The wait for a table was not long and the staff was pleasant. We placed our orders and shortly thereafter the waitress returned to tell us they were out of... More

We stopped for lunch here on the way to nearby Columbia Place Mall. The classic combo Chicken Fajita Rollups we ordered were okay, and quite affordable at $7.49, including salad. My wife had wanted soup instead of salad, but they were completely out of soup. The service was prompt and attentive (thank you Christine G). This is an average Applebee’s.

It was a little busy that night and the location we were seated was pretty cold. The waiter was doing his best to adjust the temp but everyone around us had their coats on. completely distracted all 4 of us, we just ate as quick as we could and got out of there.

My son and I went to Applebee's at noon on 3-2-14, hoping to get a quick lunch. Service was somewhat slow, but I was surprised that the place was rather empty. I know why now. We ordered the mushroom swiss burgers with fries. The fries were fine but the burger was soaked... and I mean SOAKED.... in grease. I have... More

First time at this Apple Bee's; we took our daughter there to celebrate her graduation from basic training. The food was just okay, nothing to rave about. The waitress was not very attentive and she failed to bring plates out with our appetizer. Probably would choose another place to eat if we are in Columbia again.

We had Sunday dinner here and as soon as we walked in our Hostess had her cellphone neck/headphones on, I thought that was a bit strange. Our waitress was nice but once we placed our order we only saw her twice, once to ask us if we wanted dessert and then the other when she brought our checks. We actually... More
