“How does this place get good reviews?!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We finally boycotted this place last year, so I can honestly say I haven't been back, but I doubt it's changed. First off, the server gave us water with no ice, and it wasn't even cold. However the food was cold, dull, boring and overpriced. We gave this place about 10 chances as we eat out allot in the Fort Wayne area, but no more. There are many great and very good restaurants in this area, many with good value too. I'm not a hater of chained restaurants, but this place is just plain awful.

“Nice time”

Server was friendly even with our large group. Food was as ordered. If you like Applebee's, we had a good experience at this. We also receive a discount from our room key!

“Great meal and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

I don't think of Applebee's as a 5 star choice, but I have never had a bad experience there. This one was no exception. I had a Santa Fe salad that has been discontinued in some of their stores, so I was glad to be able to get it--very fresh and appetizing. My son had chicken strips and fries and they were hot and fresh. Good food, good service, VERY busy weekend evening, and every staff person was on their toes making things run smoothly. And my biggest plus is that the music did not drown out our ability to talk to each other.

“Good Food, Good Service, Good Prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

Applebees, consistent and average. The only really issue i ever really have is with new employees, which can be expected, but i would recommend at least dining at the place where you are going to work a couple of times. When customers know them menu better then the employees thats not good.
