“Could have been better :-(”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Food was average- I am a fan of Apple Bee's but was a little disappointed for it to be so close to a vacation location. Order the new wedge salad with blue cheese (not much topping). Meal wasn't that great either. Not crowded but waitress came only once to check on us. Don't think I will go back while I am here- will try some of the other locations.

“Regular Old Applebee's”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This was a regular old Applebee's. I'm not sure why we chose to eat here. Don't waste your time in the Outer Banks eating here. Go to the Sugar Shack or Captain Georges!!

“No thanks.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stopped going to our local Applebee's due to poor service. We tried this restaurant because two of our children don't like seafood and we figured they'd have something for all six of us. We went this past Saturday evening around 5:30. They weren't that busy but we had to wait for our waiter to come to our table. He took forever bringing us our six drinks: 3 waters, 2 ice teas and a strawberry lemonade. We had to ask for our refills and he wasn't very helpful. He had a accent so maybe there was some type of language/communication problem. The food was okay. While we were waiting for our drinks, a manager walked by but didn't acknowledge us. She probably didn't want to hear us complain. However, she did come back when the food was delivered. I didn't like how the waiter addressed our teenage daughter when asking questions. It was obvious that she wasn't paying for the meal. In fact, I had to tell him to hand the bill to my husband. I really don't understand why when people go out to eat, do you have to ASK the waiter/waitress for napkins. It happens to us all of the time, this place included. I think that we have had enough of Applebee's and won't go to any of them again.

“Um no....”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Well we sat down and ordered our drinks. When the server came back proceeds to tell us they are having computer issues and they are behind. (We should have known then to just leave) He proceeds to tell us that it's so bad they are flying someone down from upper Va to fix it, lets not forget that it had stopped working properly yesterday before dinner. We waited a little over 30 minutes for our food. Most of which were appetizers. We asked for containers and were given the small container for a large order of nachos. We paid and left as soon as we could.

It would have been nice to know before we sat down there was a 'bad' computer issue. We probably wouldn't have felt cornered in AFTER we sat and ordered drinks. Hopefully, their computer problem clears up soon........
