We stopped at this Applebee's after a long day of driving, with 5 more hours til home. I was able to pull up the menu online before we got there so everyone knew what they wanted so we were able to order our meal with our drinks. I told our server that we were in a rush and needed to... More

Grabbed a really late meal and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the meal was too. I had the fiesta lime chicken and girlfriend had the fried shrimp platter. Expected both to be average, at best, especially after 9 pm, but we were pleasantly surprised. Both were not only freshly cooked they were also very tasty. I don't... More

We got in and seated but no waiter ever took our drink order or checked on us, we were there over 30 minutes.

We used to eat at Applebee's regularly, but where we live, there isn't one close by. While in Ruston, this one was convenient. First thing we noticed was that it was almost empty ay 7 pm on a Friday. We ordered from the wood fired grill menu. I had the chop with apple chutney, my wife had the steak and... More

I don't know why I don't think of Applebees more often, as I always enjoy my salads there. The staff here was very friendly and helpful, and it really hit the spot after a day on the road.

The menu is very limited for vegetarians but the bartender was an absolute idiot! She actually put my tequila on ICE. When I complained, she simply dumped out the ice and handed me the watered down $8 a shot tequila!

It was Fri night and the servers were all young. Started out ok, but had to catch the server for a straw. Didn't take too long for the food, the ribets. First time I've ever had them painted with a small amount of BBQ sauce. No napkins, or knife and fork. Had to find server again, and he went for... More
