The food is average at best, but the manager and wait staff here were on their game when I visited as a stop on my trip. I was hot, exhausted, and very frustrated when seated, and it must have shown although I didn't say anything about it. My waitress worked hard but gently as she tried to suggest--and end up... More

Server didn't know the menu and wasn't very friendly. Air Conditioning was full on so temperature inside was icy (very hot outside). No atmosphere. Food meh.

I met my son and granddaughter for dinner at Applebee's. Turned out to be a good choice as they had something to appeal to each of us. My granddaughter had a chicken wrap and a salad, my son a steak stir-fry, and I a chicken stir-fry. The only complaint I had is that I thought the stir-fry portions were too... More

I had not been to an Applebee's in a very long time but I knew they known for good food. I chose to order their "special of the day" and was not disappointed with my choice. The "all you can eat boneless chicken wings with fries and cole slaw" was delicious and very filling. I am "picky" when it comes... More

This location was great. Soon as I sat down I was greeted and offered a menu and a beverage. Normal for all Applebee's but this place was friendly for sure. The BUT above in the title is due to the "new" menu items... I personally think it is a deal breaker for me....I hope they swing back to the traditional... More

Was seated after a hostess finally noticed us. We watched our waitress go everywhere but to our table. She discussed the next tables mode of payment in depth but ignored us. She did not say she would be with us in a minute or anything like that. We watched her wander around for over 15 minutes and then we left.... More

Recommended. We visit an Applebee's once in a while when we are in the states. We stopped at this place for lunch. It's located in a busy area of town: a shopping mall center chock full of restaurants and hotels. We ordered salads. They were Good enough to commend but not outstanding. Pictures are below. The dessert was very good:... More

If you're tired and hungry from shopping at Tanglewood in Roanoke, it's probably the best place to eat in the mall. The food is decent, they have a gluten-free menu, (although it's 10-12 pages long in small type, so bring your reading glasses if you have food allergies). The service isn't great, but the extra crunchy (bone-in) wings are good.... More
