My husband and I ate dinner here because we are familiar with the chain and we usually are satisfied with the food and service. We have eaten at an occasional Applebee's and been disappointed...but this one was very good...I ate the shrimp dinner and my husband had fish and chips. The food was hot, tasty, and service was very good.

We have visited many Applebees on various USA holidays. This was a good one with food served hot and clean plates at the end. Sadly no room for dessert. Very handy for the hotels at the I85 junction.

Quite simply the most annoying experience..the waiter came by, took our order...we waited 25 minutes and asked him where our appetizer was ...it came two minutes later and then he asked if we could repeat our order because he can't find it...we think he never took it down correctly in the first place or wrote it down on a receipt...

I have been working in the Greenville area and drive an extra 5 minutes to the Applebee's on Woodruff. The two bartenders/servers Sam and Stephen are top notch. They have made this place my home away from home. I eat dinner here almost every night because of the bartenders and servers. There is one manager that could be a little... More

We stopped there late night with some friends and family. Was a simple order since we wanted in and out quickly. Waitress was so bad she quit right after our drinks. Although the bar tender and replacement server were great in recovering from the horrible start the manager on duty did not even take the time to address the horrible... More

The location was not very busy at the time of our visit. The appetizer came out about 1 1/2 minutes before our entree. When our food came out, the bourbon chicken with shrimp tasted like rubber and the garlic mashed potatoes were bland. The boneless wings were good. Our waitress was somewhat friendly, but not very attentive.

Back again! Boy, do I love eating! I haven't been here in about 2 years. Applebee's has just gotten played out to me. It used to be the ultimate date night spot, friend meet up, etc. Now, it's just plain old Applebee's. The menu has changed a little and they've added a healthy side. They still have the infamous 2...

My server was Corey and he was absolutely the best server I have ever had. Very personable person he wanted to know your name so when he served you or checked on you he always called you by your name. The food was outstanding I had the steak and shrimp, although I went there for the Sizzling Fajitas which they... More

I have tried French Onion soup at many places, and I have found this place to consistently have THE BEST French Onion soup ever. Their food is always excellent in taste and value. Their service and extra friendly staff, is above and beyond every time I visit. I always enjoy dining at this one on Woodruff Rd.
