Applebees senior management need to get a grip of this branch, based on our experience and reading some of the other reviews! We arrived at hostess station, no-one in sight. Waited about 5 minutes then went and asked the bar tender if we sat ourselves. A waitress came over and said she would go look for the hostess. She came... More

We went a long way to get here from D.C., metro and bus took about an hour. Food was ok. Service was bad, server was totally not involved. They had computers on the table to order stuff and pay the bill

Came in to grab a quick bite and a couple drinks. It was late, about 11pm. Place was dead. Ordered a drink and got some stuff to go. As I'm waiting for the to go order, the bartender's toddler kids were running around the bar area. I then noticed the aroma of urine. Not like a kid had an accident,... More

Our party of 8 came to this Applebee's while on vacation...(our home Applebee's is one of our favorite places). We had 3 servers "helping" us. They dumped a glass of water all over the table. They didn't get drink refills. There was a gnat in one of the drinks. The place was literally empty except for a few people at... More

Wow, I can't believe they could get it so wrong! My husband and I went here because the restaurant we were headed for was closed, we had been driving for a while and I was HUNGRY when we arrived. We ordered our appetizer but I could not decide on a main course, eating gluten free limits my choices, although I... More

Ours all closed, which sucks! This Applebee's offered the same great good, served it quickly and perfectly prepared, and provided outstanding service! I love their flavorful steaks!

Husband and I stopped here while on vacation. We were greeted by Robin our hostess. When we got to our booth she quickly noticed the table needed a sprucing up and quickly got a towel. I found Robin to be very friendly and made us feel welcomed. Mechelle was our server and she tackled the job. She was very attentive... More

My mom & I came here for dinner one night. The food wasn't bad and the portions were big. Our server was nice, but also overwhelmed with way too many tables in her section. A few times we had to ask for something more than once. But when we asked again she was apologetic & attended to it immediately. The... More

If you can overlook the heavily smoke-stained ceiling acoustical tiles (VA outlawed smoking in restaurants December 1, 2009) and a stale smell in the restaurant, before the appetizing aroma of the cooking begins, you could really enjoy your meal. We also feel all the furnishings need a good cleaning (top to bottom) and not just the windows, which were being... More

My family and I stopped in at Applebee's after a long day of travel. We were met by Brian our waiter who was courteous and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant, the food was great, and Brian was a joy to speak to.. If we are back in the area or visiting DC, we will stop back
