This was our worst dining experience on our vacation. We ordered off of the 2 for $20 menu; crunchy shrimp for my husband and chicken tenders for me with a artichoke spinach dip as appetizer. Our spinach dip was good, but they had dipped our...More

I thought the days of stinky cigarette smoke filled restaurants were long gone. Much to my surprise this Applebee’s allows smoking in the bar area and the stink permeated the whole restaurant. It was so bad I had to leave before I could order anything.

Went here for lunch on a weekday when it was not crowded. I was pleased with my meal, ceasar salad with grilled chicken. But when I went to the ladies room I was in for a shock. My shoes were sliding on the floor while...More

The food was ok. I had a hamburger but the server was very accommodating. It was taking a long time for my meal to be prepared so she provided me with something to snack on while waiting. This is probably one of the better choices...More

Stopped in on our way to Williamsburg. Wanted something better than fast food and spotted Applebee's. As a familiar chain, we were not disappointed. Food was good and service was exceptional. Nothing to complain about. Food came quickly and servings were substantial. We will stop...More

I have never been in a Applebees where smoking is allowed but they do here. The bar area is separated from the rest of the dining room, but this makes for a very unenjoyable meal.

This is your typical box store. Menu was in line with national chains. Food was good. Service waa friendly but slow and inattentive. Prices are moderate. Portions are small for prices.

Service is marginal. Been there several times and always seem to get someone new and they aren't well prepared. Food is OK. Bathroom is nasty. Haven't been there for quite some time. The Applebee's in Danville is far superior..

My wife and I had dinner at Applebees. My shrimp wonton with added chili sauce was excellent. My wife had Fiesta Chicken and it also was excellent. The double chocolate dessert was a great finish. Our server was very helpful and always smiling.

When traveling, my husband and I always get to the point where we just want some fresh vegetables. Applebees is the place we go. The rest of their food is also great but we really enjoy the salad bar. I've seen ads recently that they...More
