After looking for close restaurants for a quick bite after work, we decided on Applebee's. It was very crowded, Saturday night lines, but we found seating at the bar. The staff and bartenders were very on top of their game; unfortunately, the kitchen wasn't. All around us people were complaining about wrong orders and awful food. Our steaks came out and they were tough, bland and the sides were bad. We will be going to Chili's next time.

Applebee's is consistent with their food and service. Nothing to write home about but good. Ask the wait staff what people like the best, and select from what is recommended. I enjoyed a mudslide there. They are known for their riblets.

We went in for dinner. Nothing was horrible about the meal but nothing was very good either. Service was non attentive. The food was okay but not great. The beer was cold though!

I couldn't believe service could be so poor. After we received our food, we had to ask for tableware, and then had to wait. No one came back to refill drinks, remove dirty salad plates, or ask if our food was okay. After we finished, we waited well over 10 minutes to get our bill. Finally, we asked for our bill. When I flagged down our waitress, she left to get our bill without removing any dishes. For the first time ever, we didn't leave a tip. The one positive was the food was pretty good.

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.
