“Kitchen got order wrong and server disappeared.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

I went to this place with coworkers for supper and our server was Caesar. I ordered the garlic shrimp sirloin and asked to have the veggies replaced with rice pilaf and keep the herbed potatoes. When my plate arrived it had veggies and pilaf, no potatoes. So I asked our server if he could get me the potatoes. He brought me a plate with a quartered boiled new potato on it, no seasoning. Then he disappeared. 2 at our table had to leave so the remaining 2 had to wait to pay the check. I won't go back again if in the area unless I am out voted.

“Positive experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had very attentive and friendly service. Food was great. We have had not so good service in the past but, it seems as of now that they have it pretty well together and in order. Good job Applebee's staff!

“Don't do it! Not a good Applebee's!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We live here so sometimes you get tired of the other restaurants and have to go here. It is my last choice in town. Even when not crowded, you are slow to get food and it is a gamble if it is good or not. We have had some really bad experiences. The latest I watched my food sit in the window a good 15 minutes before I got it and it was cold. But I didn't dare complain because you never know what you might get if you send it back. The place needs a good cleaning. There are a few really good servers that do what they can and that is the only reason I rated it 2 stars.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

The restaurant is always busy and the food is usually hot and delivered with a smile. The service is good too.
