we went there for the first time last week and were disappointed in the food. We did only have burgers and a beer which I think should have been easy but I guess not. Jury is still out on whether we will be going back again. $40.00 for 2 burgers and 2 beers.

I'm not a huge fan of Applebee's food. The place is nice and is a good place for friends to meet and relax. Great stop over for a group of riders.

Well it took about 15 minutes for someone to realize we were even there... after that water took about 10 more and lunch (just sandwiches nothing fancy) 25 more minutes.. not good. They weren't busy at all... apparently our waitress was also bar tending and holding a baby (not at the same time) while we were waiting.

Greta lunch deals and drink deals! The Long Island Ice Tea with a soup and sandwich hit the spot more than one time!

This was by far one of the worst places to get good service. I have eaten at several Applebee's and have never had such horrible service. From the waitress, to coworkers, to the management. They all acted like they could care less if we were there or not. If I am going to spend that kind of money, it would... More

we live in the middle of nowhere so we like to take Sunday drives to nearby towns and cities to eat and shop. This week we went to Tappahannock and ate at the Applebee's. It was hard to get to the parking lot as it is kind of a maze but well worth the find! We tried some new items... More

Wide selection of food to choose from. Our waiter Jaimie was very kind and considerate. I got the 2 for $20 and ordered the Three Cheese Chicken Penne. The only gripe about my food was that the bread they give you was not buttered like it usually is. The floors were quite messy, but I guess I could understand since... More

One aspect of Applebee's is the generous servings and the certainty of always being satisfied with the size of the dishes, more often than not leaving some of the meal on the plate. The menu needs to checked with care as there are a lot of calorific items ready to entice! Food quality is what you would expect from a... More

I honestly thought we might be on candid camera! I dropped off my aunts at 11:05pm and went to check-in at the hotel (Holiday Inn). All I wanted was a chicken quesadilla. But 40 minutes later when I arrived to sit down, my aunts had no silverware, no drinks, no food, not even water. I found the manager who seemed... More
