We went for a quick dinner at 530pm on a Tuesday. The place was half full (if that) & it took over an hour to get 2 salads & 2 appetizers. It was not busy so we couldnt figure out why ut took so long. Food wasn't hot or fast & service was mediocre at best. We will not be... More

Service was terrible. Waited 15 minutes before someone came to take drink order. After taking food order she came back 20 minutes later to tell us one of the entree's ordered was no longer available. Waitress did not come back for drink refills. Seated at a booth where the bench was torn half way across. This was the third and... More

I have been meeting a friend here for about a year now and the last couple times where just really bad. We always sit at the bar and have a few drinks and some food and it has been pretty good until the last 6 months. The bartenders are not the same ones we are used to and they are... More

We love to go to our local Chili's restaurant, but decided to try something new on a Saturday afternoon. My husband had seen a TV commercial and suggested this restaurant. When we walked in there were people sitting at 3 other tables, so it was not busy. Lots of noise/conversation going on in the bar area between employees. We were... More

I have lived in Pewaukee for over 25 years. We were all so happy to finally see an Applebee's open in the neighborhood some years ago. We went there often and knew it would be good and not fancy. The last few times we have been there were absolutely awful. Please don't waste your money on the cheap Long Island... More

Typical chain food and drinks for the value. Good parking and easy to find. Service sucks! The wait staff is not caring or concerned for the customer, just about their tips. I have attended this location a few times so I can honestly say it seems to be almost the same with every waitstaff person there. Most don't even know... More

This is my second visit here and nothing has changed. On my first visit the soup was cold and the service terrible so this time I tried a hamburger. You can't screw up a hamburger, right? Well they managed. All I can say is JUST DON'T GO THERE!
