I know the Manager has his card with the bill and asks for a phone call if any problems, but I just don't want to go through all of that. Yes, I'd probably get a FREE meal because of my experience, but I trust this review will go further as he will know he needs to improve and improve now.... More

Went twice to this location. The first time I left because the temperature of the restaurant was VERY cold. The 2nd time I ate at the bar, and the Staff was aloof and didn't seem to know about the menu items. The food was very good though.

I came to the facility at about 5:30 PM and the bar area was nice and quiet. Tim, the bartender was right on top of everything. Within about 20 minutes the bar area ws packed and Tim became extremely busy with no help. He handled the evening very well, making sure everyone had their food and/r drink in a very... More

My Wife and I have been to Applebees many times. It's probably not my first choice always, but they are very consistent with the quality of their food and from being seated throughout the meal, we always feel very well taken care of. I'm not so sure the bill matches the food in the way of perhaps quantity, but it... More

Stopped in on a Friday night around 7:30 pm. We had to wait about 15 minutes or so for a table even though the dining area was about empty. Husband and I both ordered 8oz steaks and the manager came out a while later telling us they just ran out. He offered to buy us drinks but we werent drinking... More

The prices are getting insane. It took 10 minutes for our waitress to even acknowledge us. I ordered a salad with only vegetables, no cheese or meat. My salad came with Heavy bacon bits. I ordered steamed vegetables, the broccoli was saturated in butter. The dessert was good, this place is really only good for margaritas and dessert. But, it's... More

When we asked to have our table changed due to a disruptive child next to us, our server moved us quickly and without hesitation. Our food was delicious.

Arrived just after 7pm with 2 young, tired grandkids (6 and 2) in tow. It was after the 'dinner rush' if there ever was one. There were only 3, maybe 4 tables with patrons. We were seated promptly by a host that seemed put out. It was freezing cold in he resturant. I mentioned to the host that it was... More

The best food in Watertown (second to Elias Inn). Great food at average prices but most of all ask for a waitress named Maria!! The best waitress in Watertown.

What an unenjoyable and tense lunch did we have at Applebee's. There seemed to be no management present on the floor at all, the waitress was very sweet but completely clueless on so many accounts. We were there lunch with a client and after over 45 minutes we had to press as to when our food was coming out. It... More
