Arrived on Sunday afternoon for lunch after church. Was pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant was fairly empty, however, there appeared to be a waiting crowd. Waited a few minutes for an employee who then stated that there would be a 30 minute wait. Another gentleman asked why since the restaurant was empty. The consensus was that the store... More

I have eaten at Applebees in multiple states many times. And never did i have such a bad experience from the start as I had at the Applebees on JW Clay in Charlotte. Maybe they were having a really off night. We walked into a 1/2 empty restaurant and were told it would be about 10 minutes before they could... More

It's Applebee's. It's the epitome of an American chain restaurant, if that makes any sense at all. It had been several years since I had visited an Applebee's, and I didn't have much desire to return. We actually only ate here because of a long-time running joke, but that's not important. The food was surprisingly good, and portions seemed very... More

The cedar grilled lemon chicken was excellent.And not a bad buy at 2 for 20$ comes with a huge side salad or ceasar salad or choice of other appetizers. Service was good and friendly.

I went to this restaurant and as soon as I enter I see the health score of 92% which was a red flag to me but against my better judgment I decided to give this place a chance. I walk in and waited to be seated but there was no one there to greet me I literally stood there few... More

Waitress forgot to put in our order, then came back to us b/c some of the party could not get what they ordered. The order was not all correct. The waitress did not really know the menu and was not polite. The food was overcooked and the table area was not clean.
