We do not frequent Applebee's. Probably one other time in the last year. Our first time at this location. Service by Brittany was very good and she handled our disappointment with concern and grace. I ordered the sirloin stir fry and was expecting some meat and lots of cut up vegetables. What Applebee's calls stir fry is anything but. What... More

Service is good, wait time isn't too long and meals have always been enjoyable. Their appetizers are especially good and give you a different variety from other restaurants. The dessert menu short but consists of three different delicious brownie options, you can't go wrong there. Their cocktails are good so far but I would steer clear of the Fireball Whisky... More

We have seen the Applebees restaurant quite a few times enroute to Lowes and WalMart so decided to try it one evening. We were seated right away and had a little time to look over the menu. They have a pretty extensive selection of entries so it was kind of hard to choose. Once we did make our selections, it... More

We arrived at the hotel late and we're pleased to find this restaurant close by and still serving. The food was well prepared, and we found every staff member we came in contact with to be very friendly and helpful.

Recently stopped on a Wednesday afternoon and experience the worst service I have received in probably 15 years. The staff at this restaurant is completely un- trained and unable to provide the minimum of service. Wait for ever to be acknowledged, wait for ever to get food and given the wrong food orders. It was not simply our waitress, I... More

This is a nice restaurant and you can have enjoyable dinner at a reasonable price. The best dishes we found there were tomato basil soup, Cesar salad, and grilled salmon. Everything was well-cooked.

Applebee's is usually a pretty safe chain option of decent food at a reasonable price.The Triple Hog Dare Ya sandwich was good comprised of pulled pork,ham and bacon though there is a restaurant in Columbia Md, (The Corner Stable) that does this much better. Fries were good also as well as the 2 Clubhouse Grill sandwiches.Service fine.Typical Applebee's experience.They were... More

We got there and waited 5 minutes to be seated. Then we waited another 15 to be waited on. Nobody still came to wait on us so we got up and left. UNSATISFIED! Waste of time restaurant.

While we did not have to wait long to get a table - we ended up waiting for 30 minutes just for a waitress to come by and acknowledge us. The service was fair at best, and the waitress was pretty cold, not good at all. In addition the food seemed to be smaller portions than usual - very strange... More
