Staying in a nearby hotel made dining in this Applebee's seemingly convenient. We arrived, party of 6, and waited about 15 mins to place our order and 20mins to be served. Our children received their meals last!!!! Their portion sizes were all wrong, my husband had less fries than my son. My fries were stale and my son sliders had scorched cheese on top. When I brought it to my server's attention she cheerfully disregarded the entire convo. It didn't affect her either way because the 18% gratuity was included on our check!! Don't waste your time here.

We ate here because it was close to our hotel. Unfortunately they were understaffed and both our server and the kitchen were painfully slow. The food was okay, but the server failed to bring to our attention that a side was *not* included with select kids meals (not overly obvious on the menu), resulting in an unexpected charge. Disappointed and wished we had driven somewhere else - would have ate better and been done faster.

This was a really mixed experience. Things started off okay when the manager graciously agreed to honor my elderly mother's expired gift card, and later when our food arrived, we were pleased with the taste and quality of our meals. But aside from that, the experience was atrocious due to exceptionally poor service.

I will note that a group of 25 had arrived just before us, and on a Saturday afternoon, they may well have pushed the staff on duty beyond its limits. Nevertheless, we still deserved better service than we got. It took forever for the waiter to take our orders. It took forever for the meals to arrive. There was no check back to see if beverages needed refills. It took forever to get our check and pay it. What should have been an hour or so from start to finish dragged on to well over two hours, most of it very boring wait time.

Maybe it was just a bad day, and maybe it was the large group. In any case, we wished we had gone somewhere else.

One minor note: One of our party was elderly and we parked in the handicapped space nearest the door--only to see that the cutout in the curb was not near the door at all, but a good 30 feet away. What fool designed this? We had to help our person up over the steep curb to get to the door as in no way was he capable of walking the round trip to the cutout and back to the door.

For an Applebee's, it was encroaching poor. Maybe everything was weather related, as it was very nasty outside, pouring rain, gloomy....It seemed if the entire restaurant was so so, the cleanliness, the wait staff, just everything seemed depressed and gloomy.
