“Great local bistro..always good and nice service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Local applebees is perfect for a lunch or picking up quick take out. Really friendly staff...nice menu and good atmosphere for a family. Ideal for our area as we try to get there once or so a week with the kids...we love and so do they!

“Most Beautiful Waitress-- Inside and Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We had the most delightful little waitress at Applebee's. She was attentive and kind and just made the whole experience nice. The food was good as always; atmosphere normal for Applebee's. It was enjoyable.

“suburban hell”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

it doesnt get much worse than applebees. applebees is the epitome of a chain restuarant and everything that is wrong with chains. for those of you who have seen the movie "waiting", this place must have been the inspiration. TERRIBLE food, TERRIBLE service, TERRIBLE atmosphere. with new restuarants popping up in the chester county area, why would anyone still want to waste time and money on a tired chain restuarant like applebees? i guess when you dont know anything else, this is the creme de le creme for you. how sad.....

“More mediocre food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

I make the mistake of ordering their boneless buffalo wings almost every time I go to this particular Applebee's. Every time I receive them and are lukewarm and dry. This time on my "Ultimate Trio", I receive a wrong item. My mother-in-law received her shrimp entree with chicken instead. That, of course, had to be redone. Their food is going steadily downhill and I will be avoiding Applebee's for a while now.
