Chris the Bartender was amazing. He took very very good care of us. Kitchen was kind of slow but other than that we had a great time!

We got there around seven in a Thursday. One couple was in front of us. No one was at the desk and there were empty tables. It took almost ten minutes before someone came to the desk. She said we would have to wait. We asked her why and she said her staff was overwhelmed. Then she stood there doing... More

This restaurant has a nice ambiance, it serves food quickly and at the right temperatures. They make nice cocktail drinks and they have a nice small bar. Sometime I sit at the tall tables, eat appetizers and have a cocktail. Nice! The table computer with games is a nice plus. I think kids would like this but there is a... More

Had a party of 10 on a Saturday night. Arrived about 7pm. Got seated about 7:15pm. (Part of our party was there at 6:30 pm, so they knew we were coming) At 8:15pm, one member of our party, who was the only one to order a salad, still did not have it. Waitress said we were going to be waiting... More

Being middle-aged Brits, this was our first experience of an Applebee's restaurant. We chose it as we were staying more or less next door at the Hampton Inn, so it was a very convenient location. Service fairly prompt and very friendly - our young waitress helped us with some menu items, and showed us the table-top technology for ordering and... More

My husband and I shared a delicious meal 2 for $20 deal for lunch. He had his favorite lime chicken, and I tried the new potato loaded with all sorts of tasty things. It was perfect, and because we also ordered another appetizer, I actually went home with another meal's worth of leftovers. The waiter was very polite and professional.... More

This location is in the parking lot in a strip shopping center across from Patrick Henry Shopping Center. It is near Interstate 64. We like the 2 for $20 combos but decided to try the lunch combos. I got the classic and signature combo of a house salad and clubhouse sandwich while my husband got the combo of large salad... More
