As one of the few sit-down restaurants in La Grange, we return every few months. Unfortunately the service is usually terrible and the food is worse. If you want a refill on your drunk you need to hunt down your waitress because they aren't concerned with providing any service beyond taking your initial food order. If they mess up your... More

i have been to quite a few Applebees in my life and this is one of the worst. Terrible thing is that the staff is friendly but the food and atmosphere do not reflect the same. Wouldn't recommend it.

We are here and I meant to post before now. It wasn't fabulous and the place needs cleaning up. They should remodel.

We have tried this place several times because we are locals and every time we say Never Again! We do like Applebee's in other locations but this place just can't seem to get it right. The service is not the best, it does not seem clean but the food is the worst part. No matter what your favorite on the... More

My co-workers and I stopped here on the way back from a conference. None of us really loves Applebees, but it was the only sit down restaurant that looked okay. The bad--the light over our booth was out and the table top video service was not working. That said--the food was a great improvement over what Applebees has been known... More

Went to watch a hockey game while traveling. Shelby pleasantly took care of us and put the game on as soon as we requested. She seemed to have many regulars but treated us like she knew us and came there frequently. Applebee's is lucky to have her behind the bar.

Just getting into town at about 10 pm we were just happy to find someone open. The service was good food was fresh. Since it was late they sat everyone in the bar area which quickly became loud and crowded. Due to this I think the server was stretched a little thin and our service suffered. But not her fault....

There are times when you just want the familiar and friendly! My wife and I have eaten at more Applebee's then we can count. All of them together I would rate at a 4.5. Some a little better, some a little worse...but always very close together. This one in LaGrange...was the exception. Now to be fair, we had been on... More

My family has been going to this Applebee's for the last 4 years and have seen a steady decline in the last few months. It appears as though their attention to detail has faltered drastically. It seems to have started when they began to redecorate. Although seeming small and inconsequential, we noted a switch to paper napkins instead of cloth.... More

Stopped here for a late lunch during the Holidays. Wished we'd gone somewhere else. It was a slow part of the day, on a slow day, and there seemed to be only one server on duty. One other couple in the store. Service was lackadaisical, the food when it got there was pretty mediocre. I've been to much better and... More
