“Not as good as most”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

We have been to many different Applebees over the years and it is fairly consistant. We consistantly go back because we enjoy it. NOT THIS ONE. Been there 4 times in 3 years and it is always sub par. Wont go back unless its free. They just dont try as hard.

“Snotty college kids serving your average overpriced food.”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Unfortunately there are not many choices of sit down restaurants in Carbondale. I have been here many times. The service is always horrible because it is snotty college girls and too cool college guys that wait on you. Food is average. Get ready to wait for a table, wait for mediocre food, and even longer wait for your check.

“A Typical Applebees”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Unfortunately, all Applebees seem to be the same...service was probably the best thing about Applebees. The food is overpriced and we waited much too long. We were not given any credit on our bill for our wait. Have not been back since...

“Try the "Black & Bleu Burger",It just may be for you.”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

This new burger is a hit out of the park. Imagine getting your hands around this large juicy grilled burger with blackened seasoning, topped with caramelized onions & mushrooms,bacon, blue & Jack cheese served on a bun with smoky Mayo. Add this to great atmosphere & service for a memorable dining experience.
