our server was told we wanted the chicken salad with fried chicken strips not the grilled chicken,.. and yet she brought us three orders with grilled chicken! we didn't want to wait the extra time to make it right. it had already been 15 minutes and the restaurant wasn't busy at all. and one of the other waiters was rude to us when we temporarily put a purse on the next table saying; if we get a rush we will need that table. well, they never got a rush of any kind. it has been years since we dined here and we were not impressed enough to ever go back.

When going to an Applebee's there is an expectation of a friendly welcoming when you enter the door, a clean environment, professionally prepared meal, good service and a pleasant place to visit with your friends. Unfortunately each of those things didn't happen.

When we entered, there was not a greeter, nor instruction to seat yourself. So, we sat at the bar. The bartender did not wipe down the bar at any time. And then, the bartender ignored us. Finally, after being given an opportunity to ask for food ordered from the dirty menu, our food was delivered adorned with greasy-cook finger prints. All during this time we were experiencing the show of local karaoke wailers--too loud to visit with anyone. Trash was littering the floor.

A sad experience. We won't be back.

Located on Busy Street without legal u-turns at lights. Best, Safest, to arrive North Bound on Woodbine Rd or East Bound on Frederick Ave. For a Party of two ordering one sandwich, one chicken salad and two soft drinks the price of $32 is too much to pay for slow service, average food and Uncomfortable seating.

Old building, clean, understaffed, short wait, good reliable Applebys food. Serious disconnect between the bar service and table service. Need staff with training. Do not go if you are in a hurry.
