I was HUNGRY for a steak but didn't have a lot of time. Jumped in at Applebee's and had a GREAT steak. Cooked to perfection, the sides were delicious. Must try the green beans. Dessert (molten lava cake with ice cream) - oh, to die for. Service was great. I observed the staff dealing with a less than pleasant patron... More

Being locals we do not often visit chain restaurants. Today, we were both in a hurry completing tasks prior to a departure tomorrow and the most convient place to stop for lunch was Applebee's. We aer both on a low carb diet and our first perusal of the menu was a bit disappointing as we did not see anything that... More

We used to live in New Orleans and go to Applebee's a lot because we were always really impressed by the service and food. When we moved to Lafayette we tried it a few times and always had a mediocre experience. We decided to try applebees for my young son's birthday dinner. I called the day before and asked the...

We went to Applebee's for lunch. We had a party of 8 and were assigned an excellent waitress named Shelley. Let's be clear that Shelley is the only reason we rated Applebee's a two instead of a one. She was excellent. The rest of the meal was a train wreck. Let's get the biggest problem out of the way first.... More

I have eaten at Applebee's HERE in Lafayette at least 6 times a month in the past 6 months. Once Upon a Time, it was terrible; but, they have grown graciously. There are many tremendous high protein meals. The service is wonderful...ALWAYS with a Smile and some conversation......NOT ur typical idiot fast food workers; but, REAL nice servers who ACTUALLY...

One of my favorite places to eat in Lafayette. Food is always good.never had any issues with dining in. Carside to go on the other hand sucks. It's like no one wants to come outside. I waited for ever one time for some one to come outside to bring my order. I actually had to go in and ask where... More

Applebee’s in Lafayette has improved since last time we went to eat here but it is still not acceptable. The food was decent, but it is basically food that came in frozen and was plopped into a fryer and cooked up for us to eat. For bar grub it was DECENT, not good, not bad. The sauces they put on...

We stopped on tonight around 10pm. The restaurant was not busy and there was plenty of staff. They were SLOW, got the order wrong, we had to get our own silverware, we never got plates or napkins we asked for, and had to keep asking for the waitress. The portions were very small...more like mini portions. This place is horrible.

Had a four day business trip in Lafayette and was so busy I couldn't write my reviews on the night we ate out...so here goes. Sunday December 28th we ate here. We were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. Maura was our server and she was very knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu. Our food came in a timely... More

Myself and a couple of friends busted there recently for dinner. Their closing hours was half hour later, however the staff warmly welcomed us and provided service as exclusive guests. The food was great,not too long to arrive..... And the staff(though busy) entertained whilst waiting for our sumptuous meals....thanks girls for the friendly smiles and great service.
