Oriental salad needs more lettuce to be a salad, less dressing, and a large/small dish option like it used to. The two other Applebee's I've been to (ithaca and Hornell) did a better job. However, I only went to the Rome one once, so it could just be coincidental. The service was fair and friendly.

Have been here before, and it was always just average. Recently had a very large to go order and the service was very good.

The only real problem I have is with carside service. 9 times out of 10 our food is messed up. We were in the habit of checking it before leaving because there was always something wrong. We have since stopped because we go sick of asking for it to be fixed. Eating in is average. The service and the food... More

The food is acceptable though their steaks are petty iffy. Salad is extra and there are better places around where you get the full dining experience.

I have been there 2 times over the last few month and it seems they can not get it together for some reason. I wanted to give them one more chance just to see if was me or them, and it turned out to be them. My food did not taste to good and when I asked for a booth... More

Went about 8pm for dinner. Bar Service was terrible. Neither the bar or restaurant was full. Took about 10 minutes to get our beers. As we were sitting by the bar I could watch what she was doing. Bar maid would pour beer into the glass by allowing the beer to drop to the bottom of the glass (instead of... More

You know what you're going to get when you come here. I hardly ever do, because with so many local restaurants in this town, I like to try something different. It's like an upscale McDonald's, competent and corporate, but ... boring.

This was one of the better Applebee's I have been to in a long time. The service and food was great.

The manager(s) and staff are above average in their customer service. Honestly, I'd rather not eat at a chain restaurant, but I have friends who love to go here....and thanks to them, I do too. Never had a bad meal here.

When you go ask for Travis. He will make sure you are well taken care of. I ask for him every time we go. Get the pot stickers and boneless Asian wings. Ask for a Bud in a frosted glass. Travis will make sure every refill is frosted. Tip him well my friend and you will be well rewarded on... More
