When entering this applebee's I had a feeling we should have turned around and left. As we walked in with a baby and two children the the hostess acted as if there were not any available table. The restaurant had hardly anybody in it. Finally she took us to our table and I went to use the restroom. Upon returning my wife said the table was stick and as I looked down there was something wet in my chair. So I asked our waitress if we could get the table wiped down and my chair cleaned off. Rather than saying sure I had to listen to an excuse as to why the table was sticky and that is just the way it is. I once again a little more forcefully said that is fine but I asked you to wipe my table down. Finally our table was wiped down and my chair was wiped down as well. Of course she brought nothing to dry the chair with so I had to grab a napkin and dry my chair off. Needless to say we started off badly.
Now we place our order and I will say that from this point on our waitress did a god job. My glass was always full and she made sure we were taking care of. Our food was mediocre. My steak was tough and the potatoes on both of mine and my wifes plate were not up to par. Some were underdone which is not a good thing. I doubt I will return to this applebees instead I will go to the one in Marion IL where I live.
