“Horrible Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2009

Food was crappy, bad price for the quality and quantity. Riblets were dry and had a bad taste, crappy lettuce and tomatoe came with the hamburger and onion rings were gross. Waitress was unattentive and not polite. Dropped cell phone under the table and didn't realize untill after I left and called to see if it was still there and was lied to and hung up on by an employee who said they would go look and did not, called back and spoke who a manager who was rude to me on the phone and would not go look and hung up on me. I went back and sure enough it was right under the table where we sat and proved they did not go look.

“Been twice and regretted...”
Reviewed November 23, 2008

Been twice and regretted it. I don't know what they season the food with but it must be a combination of Too Much salt and MSG.

The more of these Corporate chains I avoid the better. Yuck

“Love this place!”
Reviewed September 30, 2008

Love this place. My wife and I used to go to the ones in the US and now that we moved to Ajax we can go here. They updated the outside and inside, which looks great!!!

The food is good, your regular bar and grill type food, chicken, ribs, steak, burgers… Celebrity chef Tyler Florence has a few creations, including the Bruschetta Burger which is very good.

Atmosphere is good, always a lot of people dinning, the service is OK, sometimes really fast and then other times a bit slow.

“Applebee's Food is Terrific BUT...”
Reviewed September 12, 2008

I have been to this Ajax Applebee's several times and though their food is absolutely amazing, the service is extremely slow.

So if you're going there because you're starving, you'll be dead before you get served.

BUT, again the food is amazing and i would highly suggest the Chicken Quesidillas.
