Cook comes out to check the score of playoff bb game....still no acknowledgement. No one informs the bartender that he/she has a patron. No one in... More

We ordered mozzarella sticks and wings and only had 4 pieces of each,which I thought was a ripe off.Food didn't look like anything in the menu and was bland. Bill was $80 for 3 meals and 2 appetizers. Therefore I was disappointed and would not recommend!

We arrived for a late lunch, 1:45. The waiter, Joel, who was also the bartender, had such an attitude! Half of us arrived & we shown a table & we waited for the rest of us. When they arrived, we explained who was on the 2 for 20 & 2 for 25 - he hadn't planned it & complained that... More

Was not impressed with "dirty" condition of this location. Pic is of a ceiling vent over our table. Menu special offer 6 oz. sirloin, 2 sides, and salad. Waitress didn't know about salad when asked. Sat there a good while after drinks and order taken to have salad brought out with the meal minus the French fries that were brought... More

Last year, I wrote that Applebee's is “Consistently Inconsistent”; they have improved a little but not much. I gave them another try at around 8.30pm on Monday, 7 November 2016. I ordered the 8oz shrimp prime steak and thought I had won a watch when my first bite of the steak confirmed it was well done as requested and hot... More

Those that like Applebee's will like this one. It is what you have come to expect from this chain. the staff is friendly, restrooms are clean and menu + price is again, what you expect. However, many Applebee's offer a 10% senior citizen discount (but only if you ask so if you visit one and you are 60 or over... More

During a road trip of the east coast we stopped for the night in Wilmington NC. We decided Applebee's was a decent option for a quick reasonably priced bit of dinner. Couldn't be happier with the visit. Our server Kayce was fantastic. Very attentive to our needs and wants and could not do more to make our visit pleasurable. Food... More
