Our lake home is nearby, and we sometimes eat here instead of driving into Lynchburg, where there are two Applebee's with friendly, prompt service. This time we stood in the entrance for several minutes while at least two waitresses walked by without even making eye contact.

Its hard to hurt packaged food but my chicken was overcooked. The waitress brought sweet tea for unsweet tea not once but twice. Then when I paid the bill I didn't get a receipt because they had not refilled the tape in the register in time before it ran out. So sorry, it really steamed me!

Have eaten here several times when staying in Altavista on business. Have always gotten average or above service. Never seems to be overly busy, may be different on the weekend. Recommend if Applebee.s is your thing.

Staff was very nice, had a little wait. Got shrimp dinner, little pricey for the selection. Location was easy to find.

Updated restaurant with a new look. The food was good and our waitress made sure we were taken care of. The food was very good with no complaints. Very good choice for business or family.

Applebee's has went down hill. When it first opened it was great. But then got rid of potatoes then got rid of this and that and this and that and you change the menu all the time! Do you realize your buyers hate that you change the menu all the time???!!! The service sucks except for amie on days. Oh... More

We pulled in to the Walmart parking lot to overnight in our RV. Applebee's was a short walk, and never disappoints. Good food and good service.
