We ended up there as we had been on the road all day and were hungry and looking forward to a glass of something alcoholic. Were told this restaurant served alcohol unlike a nearby steak house. The server was friendly and efficient in spite of working a full house. The salmon was a bit overcooked but all in all a nice experience.

Our Marine was home for a 96-er, and sadly did not have time for a three hour meal. It was a horrible service experience. It took 45 minutes just to get drinks on the table, and then they would not make one of the drinks, on the menu mind you, because they didnt have enough staff. It took 90 minutes to bring our meals, and this occurred only after I asked.

I am not a fan of chain restaurants but this was what our son wanted.

No one apologized, they simply made excuses. Not one offer to comp anything was made. It was a horrible service experience and it is no wonder that they have closed restaurants all over the country.

Never again.

I went expecting your average Applebee's... And it did not disappoint. Nothing special. Just your average chain restaurant. The service was somewhat slow but not terrible.

Carlisle weekend and the crowds were in full force. Our wait times were in the 45 minute range but we decided to sit tight. 1/2 hour later, we were seated. Our waitress was phenomenal and had a great personality, even with running ragged to keep up with full tables. Our food took what seemed like forever to get but when it did arrive, it was right on. Our bill for 3 people (meals, drinks & tip) was $42, which I thought was very affordable for a decent meal.
Very clean place, great staff and decent grub to eat. All in all...give them a try!

There are several good things about Applebees in Carlisle. They have a good location and a nice bar. And Televisions so you can watch sports and they have plenty of free parking.

Just don’t order the ribs, because you will get rib bones held together with a small amount of thin crisp meat. The “garlicky” green beans are very garlic flavored, so no worries about vampires after this meal. Overall, a one star meal.

And be prepared for quite a wait. We waited 40 minutes for our food to arrive. We finally had to ask if there was a problem with our order and a few minutes later the food finally arrived with no explanation or apology at all of the delay. My guess is that the ribs got stuck in the broiler so they could be burnt to that crisp jerkey like texture.

So, if you do visit Applebees, order a hamburger and a beer. They seem to do those two things pretty well.

I gave them two stars based on prior visits, but this was a true one star dinner.
