“dirty & poor service”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

Normally, you can expect consistency at an Applebees, but not in South Boston. Neither, the hostess or waitress knew the menu. Although it was not busy (3PM), we waited over a half hour for the food preparation and the meal was bland. The manager asked how our meal was, I explained that we had to wait so long and her reply was that some times they are busy. There wasn't 10 other people there! I'll never go back.

“good food, service and ambience”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

When we reached Boston at about 10pm, this was the closest open restaurants near Holiday Inn Express on Boston Street. The food was so-so, drinks great, service warm and very fast, and we did had a great time here. Will like to go there again whenever next in that area, parking is huge and mostly available in the evenings,

“IT'S APPLEBEES”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

If you want a casual resturant with a decent meal, it is a good choice. It's Applebees, it's consistent. If you eaten at any Applebees,you know what you are going to get

“Last trip to this Applebee's”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

We live in the area and recently stopped in for dinner and what a mistake! First off, this is one of the filthiest restaurants I have ever visited. Floors, windowsills, etc are just plain disgusting. I had to wipe down the ledge by our booth so that my 2 year old would not be playing in the dirt and the wipe was turned black with dust....gross! Moving on to the food- -we ordered simple burgers and didn't even get what we ordered. My burger was not served with the onion straws and my husbands burger was not right either. They were both dry and not served hot to top it off. In an effort to fill my tummy I ordered dessert, yet another waste of money. I have had the Blondie with ice cream before and this was just a very poor excuse. It was served cold and stale with a half scoop of ice cream. Interestingly the manager then stopped by our table and asked if it was OK. When I replied that it was not he said that there was a problem in the kitchen and they were not able to heat up the skillet appropriately but he could bring us another. Really????? After serving a dish you knew was not right why on earth would I want to stick around for another one? I left with the only positive note that I will NEVER be back again!!!
