This was an extremely dirty Resturaunt. Waiters were friendly and kind but food left much to be desired. They actually were out of salad dressing. This was the 2nd time this has happened with Applebee's . It won't happen again because I will never go again. Each of us had a problem with some aspect of our meal. 2 dressings... More

I use to love Applebees. But after this not to much. Need a better building better staff and better food. Need a WHOLE 360 turn around.

Someone needs to invest in this location or close it down. The inside is dirty and old. I wish I could get the flith on the windows. Pass this place up. Oh and can someone get the diaper out of the parking lot. All food was sent back. Never again.

Stopped in last night. Wanted a draft beer and with 10 taps 4 were out and it was a joke to the bartender. Finally I got a beer and the wife settled for a wine but she wanted a cold draft. I dont know about the rest of the world but usually a empty glass at the end of the... More

Stopped here on the way home to eat. Walked in and were seated after waiting a few minutes (there was no wait,just took that long for a hostess) Finally we were seated. We were passed by several waiters/waitresses. None of them spoke to us. After waiting 15 minutes, and even hitting the call server button on the little kiosk on... More

The restaurant is in dire need of a renovation, there was the overwhelming smell of dirty dishrag, and the service was slow and not very friendly.

Didn't take to long to get seated. We did get our dinner within 30minutes and it was very good but the service was just a bit off. Had to ask for drink refills but that's the only complaint. When talking other orders don't forget the other diners in your section that's all.

We ate dinner here while staying for a couple days in Charleston. It was nearby to our hotel, we were tired AND hungry, so we gave it a try. Some chains like this are exceptional and others are just average. I think it depends on the staff who work there. Not every place can find exceptional staff these days. The... More

Visited our neighborhood Applebee's and was greatly disappointed. The ambiance is dismal and needs a remodeling. The service shows need for better training and a change from the perfunctory attitude that prevailed. The fiesta chicken was dry and the fried shrimp were overly breaded and very small. Do not recommend and will not be back. Hope this helps.

We decided to give this a try since we like Applebee's. Were seated fairly quickly but waited forever for our order to even be taken. Waited even longer to get our food. To be fair, food was good once we got it but they did forget part of our order and had to be reminded twice. Crowds remained at the... More
