I am not fan of chains like Applebees and TGIF's. Food is bland and though a bit on the less expensive, not worth it in terms of satisfaction. Our experience this time again confirmed this opinion. The French Onion soup I ordered was fair, but it was disturbing to learn from the waitress that it is frozen! The small sirloin... More

I have never seen an Applebee's in such terrible shape. There was food strewn all over the floor and the plates were dirty. We were there on a Friday night. It was busy, but not overwhelmingly so. The hostess obviously had too many tasks to handle, and we waited forever to be seated. The food was fine, but the place... More

We have found that eating at Applebee's is kind of hit and miss for food and service. This one had good service and good food. My husband and I both had Grilled Lime Chicken which was good but I wish they would give you a piece of lime and salsa with it like they served it last year. Those extras... More

We have enjoyed Applebee's in other places but this one was disappointing. The hostess was too busy grooming her nails to greet us. The waitress was impatient and less than helpful. The staff were dressed in well worn jeans and T shirts. Tables were left with dirty dishes. Our salads were not fresh but our bourbon chicken and shrimp was... More

We have stayed at the Super 8 in Summersville each year and this year was the same but the Super 8 was absolutely horrible this year and we found out that East Indians bought it last year which explains the condition if the rooms, and breakfast etc. We also go to the Applebys next door to find the conditions of...

I would suggest you try a different place--the food is okay, nothing great, the service is sporatic and they have had a lot of management problems. In my opinion, it is the worst of the chain. We try to avoid it whenever possible. Have never had a great service or a dinner without its share of problems.

My wife and I usually avoid chain restaurants but we went to the Applebee's in Summersville because it was right next door to the Super 8 where we stayed. It proved to be a good choice. We had intended to go to another restaurant fot dunner but Applebee's happy hour snacks and drink specials were more than enough for us.... More

Since travelling with a small dog, we needed a takeout meal that was healthy. Applebee's has excellent healthy offerings on the menu and also the menu stays current with new kinds of food offerings. Our meal was good as we ate it in a hotel near by.

Visited Friday afternoon. Took longer than it should have to place order. Waitress said the Christmas tree blocked her view and didn't see us. Lucky visit, food was decent and service was decent
