On Jan. 30 2017 my wife and I stopped in Gadsden while travelling on I-59 and stopped for dinner at this Applebee's. We were seated promptly in a nice booth. We ordered the 6 oz. and 8 oz steak dinners with baked potato, grilled vegetables and fries, plus 2 house salads. The food was served in good time, with the... More

Food was exactly what you expect from Applebee's. Service was a little slow and there was a bit of waiting in spite of empty tables. Waitress was nice

I guess you go to a chain for consistency and this was that. Just like the one we eat at a lot in Panama City. Same menu, preparation and so forth. Good quality, good service, clean environment and so forth.

My husband and I visit Applebees quite regularly. The food is normally pretty good and we normally get our meals fairly quickly. The only issue I have is they keep changing the menu so often if there is a particular dish you've liked before, it's off the menu the next time you visit. Their steaks are usually pretty good. I...

Food was definitely not worth the wait. It was obvious it was kept warm waiting on my hamburger! Once my burger arrived... More

Kelli was the bar tender, she was all about quality and quick service. Had a lunch special, cheese burger with fries and iced tea. Asked for pink center and that's what I got, large and juicy. Nice bun, good fries. Easy good quick and filled me up for the rest of the day! Brovo
