“Great appetizers. Poor wait staff.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2011

My partner and I were not too hungry, but found the perfect late night meal: half-price appetizers. We purchased 3 appetizers for a total of $12. That was the best part.

Unfortunately, we were highly dissatisfied with the wait staff. When we entered the restaurant, 3 servers/hosts were in the lobby area. One was holding the door for us, but NO ONE greeted us; they just stared and made us feel incredibly uncomfortable. We noticed that during our time there, several of the servers/hosts would step outside of the restaurant for who knows what. But the worse part? Having your server take a smoke break during your meal, returning without washing his hands, and expecting a good tip. Great prices on the a late night meal, but horrible service,

“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

Asked for water ... Never received it.
Was served the wrong beverage.
Requested 'no salt' ... Was served heavily salted.
Manager wandered around asking if a certain person worked there.
Bartender was busy on the phone.
Truly disappointing.

“very simple but tasteful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2010

Applebee's is the kind of restaurant you can go with almost anybody. The food is always good and the prices are really fair. It also has a great atmosphere. I like go over with friends to have desserts. The apple cake with the ice cream on the side is not to be missed. They also offer very delicious cocktails. Just watch for your diet!
