Went on a Saturday evening. Sat at the bar. Only three others were at the bar. I was totally ignored by the bartender, who displayed no interest whatsoever in actually working. Had to eventually get up and leave. Unsurprisingly, the restaurant was nearly empty on a Saturday evening.

Sat at the bar and ordered a beer and some food. TV had hockey playoffs on and enjoyed myself very much. Great food and the beer was cold.

I usually don't visit Applebee's when I travel since the menu is the same no matter what city you are in. This one was within walking distance to our hotel. I have to say the new menu selections are outstanding. The service was the best that I have received at any Applebee's and excellent cocktails to go with the dinner.

We had the blazing texan burgers, one with french fries and one with onion rings (for an upcharge). The onions and jalapenos on top were delicious, and the burger was pink as ordered! Monday night is $8.99 burger night - a bargain! Our server, Lacey, was most attentive and very personable. The country music was a bit loud, but that's... More

We visited this location with group of over 30 comprised of Beta Club Juniors and parents/ teachers. The Servers were especially patient and kind; food was served promptly. We could not have been more pleased. The delicious food was topping on the "cake". I have not visited Applebee's often but will begin to do more often now.

I am not a fan of going to a chain that I can go in my own town, but we really needed to get something to eat. We sat in the bar area and watched football. The fans were pretty fun to watch. Our waitress was excellent. She anticipated our every need and made sure we felt at home. The... More

Applebee's has been quietly ramping up their entree selection and quality. The location at Sharkey away offers excellent service and has become a frequent favorite for meeting customers. They offer a 2 for $20 and a 2 for $25 entree selection. The latter offers a real deal! You and your guest can independently choose a large house salad, a huge... More

We ate at Applebee's twice while on our short vacation, you can not go wrong with the quality or price of their food.

Just moved to the side of town with this Applebee's and I must say it is the best one in Lexington. Everything from the facility to the food is just better. Really enjoy the happy hour which has a selection of half price appetizers and top that with special drink prices that run all day such as $3.50 long island... More
