“Value for the money”
Review of Applebee's

Applebee's
Ranked #79 of 204 Restaurants in Portsmouth
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2010

After reading all the comments about the ripoff restaurants in the Kittery outlet lane we decided to take no risk and went to Applebee’s. Again we made a good experience, this time with their Shrimp 'N Parmesan Sirloin. A friendly waiter served us quickly. Applebee’s is always a good deal, nothing fancy but good value for money.

The place to go the time that you want to celebrate with friends but the food, beverage, and service do not matter. The place to go for the person who does not know that good food requires good ingredients. During our visits we have had broiled/grilled chicken and beef items returned because as the plate was delivered there was an odor that wafted from the plate telling us that the meat was long past preferred (refrigerated) holding time. The dining experience was matched by the coffee, obviously served after being held on the burner for hours, such that it had the distinct bitter/sour/burned odor. Evidently the staff are so busy interacting with each other that they do not take the time to notice the smells from the plates and cups. The fried food items were fine, so if one does go here they should stick to the chicken fingers. Just don't show up thirsty, getting a first drink takes a long time, and a refill, well, it will be a longer time. Speaking of long times, the pace is set when you walk in the door and get the chance to be ignored by the staff as you stand and wait to be seated at one of the empty tables, note that I did not type "wait for a table to become empty". On the other hand, when the staff take the time to finally notice you they are friendly, but as soon as they leave the table you drop off their "radar screen". In the end you really feel like the Prom Date of a person who decided to attend at the eleventh hour, and asked you only because you happened to answer the phone.
