You know what you get at Applebees. This one was no more or less than the ones at other locations.

“Terrible service for "Curbside" pick-up!”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

I ordered 2 adult meals, 2 kids meals and appetizers. I didn't realize until I got home that they didn't give us the 2 slushies that I paid extra for as part of the 2 kids meals. I called to complain, they wanted me to come back to pick them up. I explained that we live in the next town over and I didn't want to drive another 15 minutes - sacraficing eating dinner with my family on the 4th of July, just to come home to cold food. They didn't offer any type of remedy and only offered a weak apology stating, "If you ever come back, it won't happen again". So essentially, I paid $10 for 2 little bowls of what looked like Kraft Easy Mac. If this would've happened at TGIF's or Famous Dave's I'm sure I would've been offered some type of apology & perhaps a coupon for a future date as a gesture to make it up to me. This place obviously doesn't believe that the customer is top priority. As a business student, I know that customers have many other options for dining and would absolutely do anything to keep a loyal customer; instead Onalaska Applebee's has just lost one for life. I think it would've been reasonable to at least offer 2 free slushies for a future visit...really....I did pay $6 for them!!

“The worst Applebee's you will ever experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2011

Joined their eclub for my birthday to receive a free dessert. My husband, daughter and 9- month-old granddaugher dined at Applebees;s after church on Sunday, Jan. 16 - a big mistake!. Service was incrediably slow. We waited over an hour for our food. The food was not received until I finally complained to the manager. Baby was not happy to sit there that long. We asked for an additional drink - waiter forgot, we asked for additional napkins - waiter forgot, we asked for carry-out boxes - waiter forgot, etc and etc. Food was cold when we finally were served. Interesting that tables that were seated after us were served ahead of us - we really did not order anything special and it was very busy. There are many of options in Onalaska to celebrate your B'Day - do not go to Applebee's! The only redeeming factor is after my complaining they did not charge us for the meal.
