The coffee was fresh and our waitress kept it coming. Thai salad was good but a tad spicy so beware if you are spice sensitive the small steaks were nicely done. Garlic beans were not great but broccoli was just right. A good visit

Ordered at 10:22am online for an 11:45am pickup. Taking food to a 12:00 lunch meeting. Order 2 lunches....pretty simple right? NOT! Waited at curb for over 15 minutes. Late for meeting. When I opened my lunch - it was literally a handful of lettuce/cabbage and the shrimp was only half cooked. Hardly edible. Can't believe I paid $10 for the... More

We had a very good waitress. Our orders came out fairly quickly. She came many times to check on us. We thought out entrees were tasty. l think their prices are a bit high, but we would return to this location.

Applebee's has changed they menu again. Had they lunch special. For $9, i got a half sandwich and serving of fancy Mac & cheese. The sandwich was above average. But the mac & cheese was to strange. The noodles were over done. The sauce was very watery. It was more like an Alfredo sauce. Then I top of that was... More

We dined there on a Friday evening. Upon entering we noticed a lack of patrons at the dinner hour; we also noticed a stale musty odor. We were promptly seated and menus given, Almost immediately the server took our drink order, She also asked us what we would like to order. Not 3 seconds after getting the menu. We asked... More

My Mother-in-law was in the hospital for 10 ays. My wife stayed with here around the clock. I would releive so she could have a break. I would then stop at Applebees for dinner after 8. It was convenient and reasonably priced.

I try to avoid reviewing chain restaurants because one is about the same as another. But that isn't the case with the Applebee's on Old Forest Road in Lynchburg. Having dined at Applebee's in Roanoke, Bedford and Lynchburg, this one is head-and-shoulders above the others. The food is consistently delicious, unlike the others in the area. It arrives at the...

Service was acceptable. Seemed to be a permanent but unsettling stain on table. Featured shrimp broccoli pasta dish was devoid of taste! Applebee's is certainly not known for a high culinary level but this one is below their usual standards.
