Reviewed January 7, 2013

The service there is very good. The food is good too. I would return again. We have been to the Applebees in Portsmouth and they are very good too. For a chain type restaurant they are doing a good job at serving the people on the seacoast of this area.

It takes a lot for me to give a mediocre review but this is one of those times. I know that in some circles Applebee's is a big nothing. I really enjoy the one in Portsmouth, NH when I want a quick and reliable lunch but this one in Sanford, Maine is really, really tired feeling. The waitress was delightful, efficient and a great asset to this restaurant. My friend has a Reuben that fell flat and yet was greasy and unappetizing. The deep fried onion rings were way, way too big and heavily breaded - also too greasy feeling. My lunch was the tomato/basil soup and that was quite nice - lively tasting I would say. My chicken/spinach blueberry salad was not so great. The chicken was dry and the spinach fell flat in spirit and presentation. The blueberries were fresh and fine. Don't think we'll be eating there again. When we asked the waitress if she could turn the music down a bit - she said she could not as it was set by management and "sorry" but it cannot be done. Wow management when you can no longer accommodate your patrons you have a problem. Do you think management is the problem here from food to atmosphere?????

I enjoy Applebees. Prices on some items have come down. Service is always good, no complaints here!

Restaurant a bit smelly, as in damp carpet. Staff seems to lack energy and interest. Food not up to par compared to other Applebee's.

We go quite often. The food is always very good, as is the service.
Granddaughter's favorite. She loves the shooter desserts.
