Got there just before 9 pm. Got the half off appetizers, they were good. Hot and fresh. Service was great Most of the patrons were 50 or older and the music was hip hop, and wasn't enjoyable. I do like the half off appetizers.

For the most part, we were OK with the experience w/some exceptions. Seated promptly, order taken and food delivered in a reasonable time frame. My 6 oz sirloin was not pink in the middle as I had requested, but still tasty enough not to send back. Husband's Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp was billed as blackened shrimp, but the chicken...

This Applebee's is within a short walk of several hotels just off the interstates. We had good service and good food - chicken & shrimp and a chicken salad. The highlight for me was a very good Vienna Lager from a local craft brewer, Devil's Backbone.

Stayed at the hotel in the same parking lot as Applebee's. Went to dinner on a Tuesday night. Not overally crowded--they obviously get a great deal of business from the adjacent hotels as not much else around. Helped ourselves to two seats in the bar area. Was greeted promptly and drink orders were taken quickly. My wife and I ordered... More

Good food, nice atmosphere. Very close to my hotel so went there for convenience. Close to Washington and Lee University.

Stopped here after being on the road all day. Music was ridiculously loud. Manager lowered it reluctantly but not enough to hep (and i love music). My chicken wrap probably had a tablespoon of chopped chicken. My friend's order was wrong. Margaritas were decent. Waitress was nice. Almost walked out before we ordered. Wish we had.

I stopped here at this Applebee's with my wife and daughter tonight and it was the worst experience I have ever had at an Applebee's restaurant. And I typically love visiting Applebee's. It took us forever before the server even came by and got our drink orders. Took us much longer than it should have to get our drinks and... More

The menu has changed and it's not even a bistro-type to me. None of the entrees looked appealing to me, so I ordered a sirloin, cooked medium rare... well it wasn't medium, and was tough to even cut with a knife, and to chew it. The steamed brocolli was good, and you can't go wrong with a baked potato. 1... More

I was seated within a reasonable time, and waited on quickly. The restaurant had a nice ambience, and was clean. I ordered a salad and it came out quickly. It was not very large for a main entree, and had no bread or crackers with it, hence the 4 star rating. I find Applebee's to be slightly overpriced for the... More
