Like this place, friend & I dine here often. The servers are always great and the food is very good for a chain restaurant. Very comfortable place to spend time!

First of all I would like to say that I have been here few times, and each time it has been worsening. -longest waiting time, ( it was not a busy time or day) 15 min for the server to come to our table, then 15 min for the water and another 15 minutes to get the food.....ridiculous! -the server...

Stopped in for lunch, seated and ordered. Our server seemed to spend more time with the table behind us and the manager brought our food. The food was ok. Heavily seasoned. A few things were noticed, apparently the staff were sneaking their breaks outside in a visible area and chain smoking like crazy. When the all came back in the... More

I recently visited this restaurant due to my 8 year olds request. We stopped in for an early dinner and were left with a feeling that we will never return. Appetizers as well as food all tasted as if they were cooked in a plastic bag and poured onto dishes and served to us. I would be shocked if they... More

We visited here once several years ago and had a great experience so we expected the same this time around. We should have known by the filthy carpet when we walked in that they were having a bad day! It was busy but not packed and they must have been short staffed because the hostess was cleaning tables and seating... More

I have lived in Connecticut for 2 1/2 years and have avoided the local Applebee's because our New Jersey version of this chain had terrible food. We finally bit the bullet and went to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The food was quite good and the service and atmosphere was excellent. We both had the barbecued spareribs and started... More

Went here a couple of months ago & had an awesome burger. Went back again with a friend and guess what? Another awesome burger, our server was pleasant but was short of listening skills. When I ask for it with my order, I expect to get it with my order not have to wait and et my food cool down,... More

My wife, 7 year-old daughter and I went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. There was a party of approx. 25, but the rest of the place was empty. After speaking rudely to another employee; the hostess sat us directly next to the large party. The restaurant was not very clean. The on-table video screen was quite filthy and the... More

Joined a friend for lunch, her choice, Applebee's not my favorite place. Not having been there for a couple of years I noticed the menu changed so I just followed her lead and ordered the cheeseburger. I was shocked, the burger was better than the two boutique burger bars on the Milford Post Rd. Waitress whose name escaped me was... More

Place is practically empty and those diners who are occupying tables are almost senior citizens or already there. Yet, the music blasting would better compliment the younger, more rowdy bar crowd. The waitress took so long coming to my table that I was getting ready to leave. Pleasant she was, when she showed up. Before taking my order she was... More
