“Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

The service is always very slow. The food is good. We do go back once we forget the painfully slow service from the last time.

“Not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013 via mobile

Im from Lancaster but if I want Applebee I usually go to Rock hill. Service is usually bad, long waits for food. Much better choices in the area.

“Always slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

The food is good but every time we go it takes 45 minutes or more to get our order. My other issue is no matter where you are seated you get bombarded with cigarette smoke.

“3rd Strike!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

We have now been to this Applebees 3 times and all three were less than ideal. It is always LOUD and UNDER-staffed, the food is decent if they get it to your table warm, and don't ask them to "warm it up" because they will take it to the back and microwave it into oblivion!!
