“It's the same everywhere”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

The food and atmosphere are mostly the same at every Applebee's, but I did find it a little unprofessional to overhear the wait staff, bar staff, and even what appeared to be a supervisor flirting with each other and discussing dating each other, etc.

“Is there any other rating?”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Had to eat somewhere in Waterloo. Large group of work colleagues. Where else to go than a huge national chain? Although the young serving staff seemed somewhat forgetful, we enjoyed the standard fare without any major inconvenience. Nice glossy pictures of the food so we could order by pointing. How can you rate a chain with anything else than average? it is what makes the little interdependent places so much more special....
