Just left Applebees where, after being seated, not a single person acknowledged we were there. Managers and servers took care of those who sat in front of us and behind us but never once stopped at our table. We sat there for 20 minutes before we got up and left. I'm afraid Applebees is headed the way of TGIF -- closed down.

Always a place where you feel comfortable with the prices, service and the surroundings.
A wide variety of food and drinks, plenty of TV s and some music.

I've never been a huge fan of Applebee's. It's never all that impressive, but it's never bad either. This was a different story. My friend got a salad that made her sick. I ordered a Cheese steak sandwich that the menu said was sliced prime rib with cheese, but was in fact, ground up hamburger meat with cheesy goo on it. Absolutely disgusting. When we spoke to the manager about our meal he was defensive and argumentative and took nothing off our bill. Horrible dining experience.

I don't know what people see in Applebee's, and the Sterling store in particular was a huge disappointment the two times we ate there. They have a particularly nasty habit of finding the fine print in any promotional offer and ensuring that no rational person can come away without feeling they have been taken. No matter what you THINK you saw on a TV or print ad, trust me, you will find yourself wrong when you get to the point of paying for your meal. And that meal is going to be so small-portioned (the sliders come to mind) you will find yourself wondering how many you would really have had to order to be satisfied.
