Typical Applebee's restaurant, located near White Oaks Mall. Good American style food at reasonable prices. Service was above average (ask for "Austin"). Full bar.

I have been to Applebee's a handful of times. My service has always been poor to fair. This time it was fair at best. Myself, my child, a friend and her child ate lunch here last week. She and her child requested Applebees, so we came along. My child ordered the chicken Mac n cheese and mozzarella cheese sticks and... More

Located near my hotel so ate here two consecutive nights. Place was very quiet and not very busy for a Tues-Wed night dinner. Not much difference from this venue than others in the chain. They tend to get things right and the standardization is noticed, only real difference ends up being the service which was average at best at this... More

I'm sure that statement has been said by so many people in the past, "I used to love Applebees." And it's true. We used to go here. It used to be a staple dining option for us. Sadly, it's not any more. We wondered why, how did it happen? So we went back to try it again. It was early... More

Walked in at 9:45pm on Saturday June 6 and sat in bar area and watched 5 other parties come in and get their orders taken. They knew we were sitting there because they acknowledged us when we walked in. Also a waitress was taking bites out of a sandwich in a corner booth between visits back and forth with customers....

I usually try to give a restaurant the benefit of the doubt but I would say giving this place 1 out of 5 is more than fair. Everything was a failure. We were seated at the back of the restaurant near the restrooms. The restrooms had a terrible sewer smell permeating out like a backed up sewer pipe. This odor... More

We had the boneless wings appetizer...they were average and actually very plentiful which was a good thing (we were able to fill up on those) because the entrees were very poor. My husband's steak was overcooked and my riblets were just plain strange. The little flat bones were difficult to deal with and the meat was not tender at all... More

We came in there with our kids and were seated in the middle of the restaurant. The bartender had obviously over served a guest and they were cussing loudly about some stupid football game.
