I was very harsh on my last review of Applebee's but they have spent millions of dollars on the new wood fire grills and retraining chefs. The menu and new grills make them a legitimate steak place. My steak was great and they even have baked potatoes now. The salad was even great.

This place is a mess right now. They have some decent servers but the overall experience has been terrible the last three times I've been. I'm not going back. Kitchen and management need serious training. On the up side they have great tasting food. Just too slow and they don't compensate correctly. Too bad

Waited 21 minutes and finally left because no one acknowledged me and my child sitting there. Three servers were standing over near the side laughing and talking. The restaurant was far feom full. One whole section was nearly empty so they werent overly full. One looked over my way but then turned her back to me when she noticed I... More

We stopped in the Applebee's for a late, 8:00 PM dinner. Thank goodness the big "Tennessee/Alabama" game was over and patrons were leaving; otherwise, I doubt we would have gotten a table. We weren't sure what kind of service to expect since we anticipated that the staff and cooks were probably burnt out and winding down after being slammed. My... More

The story is too long but they never brought the right food to my wife. Did not offer to make it right. The window blinds are nasty to put nicely. Too much to list. Just the way it is.

Went in around 5pm Sunday and discovered it was happy hour. We went to try their new salad meals and enjoy an appetizer at happy hour prices. They offer these everyday from 3-7pm. Good variety but we had the spinach dip which was very good and comes with salsa, too. We had to ask for more salsa since there were... More

I was in the VA in Johnson City, for heart tests, I had a friend bring me one. If I had stroked out it would have been worth it.

The 3 of us elected to get three 1/2 price appetizer happy hour specials and was more than enough for us. Had the hot spinach dip, meatballs--were cold so sent back--and boneless wings. Nothing special but decent food. Waitress was definitely "blond".

I salute the Applebee's in Johnson City! On veterans day the place was packed, but the wait staff and management took the time to cater to an elderly veteran. They took turns sitting with him and listening to him talk and sometimes cry. Those of us close enough to witness this were in tears. Thank you Applebee's for a really,... More
