Applebee's Davenport Iowa. Increasing smaller portions, and increasingly longer waits. Waste of time. Next time anyone suggests going to Applebee's, I will give my straight up opinion, then promptly go anywhere else. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
We just had a meal at Applebee's in Wilson, NC. My wife ordered a salad with grilled chicken. The salad was just lettuce. 2 croutons and chicken. It did not have any of the ingredients listed on the menu and the chicken tasted like it was cooked with salmon. I ordered the stuffed rigatoni in meat sauce. The meat sauce was burned and the rigatoni was dried and brittle except where the "so called" sauce was covering it. The breadstick that comes with it was very hard. It was evidently cooked in a microwave. This was my first and last visit to the Applebee's. I have been in other Applebee's and the food was much better.
I am a Vietnam era veteran who serve proudly and honorably in the United States Army Military Police Corps during Vietnam. I'm trying, and I mean trying to survive on a social security disability paycheck. I don't have a car. This year Veterans Day falls on a Sunday. I live in Pocatello Idaho. The buses do not run on Sundays. I called the local Applebee's and wanted to make sure that they're having their Veterans Day free menu on the 11th, Sunday. They said they were. They said it was corporate decision. So I called the corporate office.
After much hemming and hawing, I was told that it's an across-the-board corporate decision that the free veterans meal is on Sunday, November 11th. That's why I'm saying that they're paying lip-service to veterans. Someone, across the board, could have it on Monday the 12th of November. Since that's the official government observance of Veterans Day. I know several people who don't have their own transportation and rely on public transportation. Those veterans will not be at Applebee's on the 11th. Along with myself.
We sat and waited 2 hours for our appetizers, then 2 of the people at our table received their salad. The other 4 had to wait. Finally when they served the other 4 we complained about our appetizers. Received them 15 minutes later. We sat for a minimum of 17 minutes (and yes I timed it) to get refills on soda. Alcohol was longer. Our food was served to a table next to us, after they started to eat it we at both tables realized it was our table's and they said it was cold anyway. The waiter came around 20 minutes after that to check on their table and took the plates into the back and warmed them up and served the exact same plates to us! Most dishonest manager ever! He blamed the bad service and the wait for only our table others came and gone while we sat, on the fact 2 kitchen staff was sick.
Kerstin was great! She attended to our needs. She informed us of the day’s special. She frequently checked on us to ensure we were having an awesome time. She also answered all of our questions. Great job.

We go to Applebee’s about once a week and I’m a very picky eater, there’s only two things I’ll eat on the entire menu and one of them is on the 2 for 25$. We love that deal. Anyways I always get the oriental salad. It used to an amazing salad. Always way too much to eat. Brought home a container for the next day. The last two times I purchased this salad it was truly terrible small portion of lettuce and what you could find tasty a bit moldy... I’m done. No more Applebee’s for my family!!! Sorry Applebee’s. You screwed us over twice. We will never eat in there again...
The family went out to Applebee’s and we all got chicken sandwich. My wife ate half of hers and when she got to the middle the chicken was raw. Not undercooked completely raw and had blood in it. Disgusting. Do not eat there.
Took family to Applebee's for a dinner, staff was rude and questioned why my son would only have a appetizer for a meal? He ate earlier in the evening and wasn't that hungry but was still questioned why he wasn't getting a meal. I finally said, "He doesn't have to explain. This isn't court." Then proceeded to ask me how I like my bacon. Well let me see... Cooked! It is a pork product. Worst customer service we ever had. She basically took our order and left. It took almost 45 min for food and it was lousy. This place won't get my dollar again.
Poor customer Service. Me and my daughter went to dinner at the local Applebee's near our home in West Allis Wisconsin at 2865 S. 108th St. in West Allis, Wisconsin. Graduation Weekend, the evening of June 8, 2018, at 8 pm. My Daughter who has a learning disability ordered an appetizer, was confused about the price of the appetizer and wanted to return the appetizer after paying for it with her credit card, only to be treated poorly and embarrassed by the manager on duty, **. Not only was he rude, he smacked his hand down on her to go order and told her because she used a credit card there was nothing he could do about it, threw his hands up, and walked away. Needless to say my daughter was pretty disappointed, that pretty much ruined our experience and we don't think we'll ever visit that restaurant again.
I arrive at the restaurant at 10:30 PM. I place my order drinks and food. It's now 10:45 PM. We have not received any drinks. The waiter kept say she waiting on the Bar. 10:55 pm No Food or Drinks. The party that sat down after us now have their Food and Drinks. It's Now 11:15 pm. Nothing from our waiter at this time. Another waitress walk past and said, "Ya'll still don't have ya'll Drinks and Food?" We said, "No!!!" 11:20 PM I spoke with the Manager Nadia. She was very Rude, Loud and Ask Me, "What do you want me"!! I stated, "I want this service to be look in to and how my service was." I NEVER RECEIVED MY FOOD or Apologize for the Poor service when should have been upset and Rude. She was yelling at me.
Went to Applebee's against my better judgement. Our server doesn't even ask us for drinks until we were waiting for 10 minutes. Initial order was wrong and had to be sent back. Fries were dry and burger was way too salty. And the worst part? I wake up the next day with a terrible stomach flu. I must have puked up 15 times! I normally don't have any issues eating out but this experience was so bad I had to report it!
Let me start by saying the service was great! The food on the other hand was terrible! I had the potato soup which wasn’t all that good, barely had any potatoes in it. It also wasn’t a big portion. I also got a Caesar salad which was good, but a very small serving as well. My husband got the shrimp stir fry and he said it tasted like a frozen meal. What a waste of our money which was also expensive for what we got!
I used to love coming here, but my last 2 visits have been everything short of great. Tonight we waited 45 minutes for an appetizer, & when we got our food it was cold & we didn’t get the complete order. We waited an extra 15 minutes for the rest of our order. We didn’t get refills the entire evening. Disappointed as this is one of the few “sit down” restaurants in this town. Our server was very nice, but the overall service was not good.
We ordered a burger medium (told it would be pink), potato soup, French onion soup, pretzels and cheese. The server took our order and didn't come back till after we had a problem and then was gone till we were out of tea and ready to go. The burger was well done. Potato soup was just cheese no potato, the pretzel was overcooked and had no salt on it. Very unsatisfied. When we told them about the potato soup with no potatoes we were told that,s the way it comes.
Went for a couple of drinks with my girlfriend and had the worst service ever. We sat at the bar and didn't even get recognized until after 10 minutes. Worst part about it was they wasn't busy at all and she walked back and forth in front of us like we wasn't even there.
When I arrived at the establishment, I immediately was unhappy with the service. I had to wait two hours for a ** table. Then when I was seated, I got my food and it was colder than an iceberg. These ** is wild as hell. I am never returning. Do better sis.
3 women went to lunch at the 44th St Applebee's. We all had gift cards. One had somehow not been made active. The GM manager Tony took totally handled the matter so professionally and with great care. The wonderful servicer Jenn was so caring also. Thanks for a really great lunch.
Me and my husband went to Applebee's in St. Joseph location for our first anniversary and it was literally the worst mistake. We orders the 2 for $25 deal, and got wings for appetizer which were amazing BTW. But that's the only thing that was even good. I had finished my bring before the appetizer had been brought out, our server noticed that if I needed a refill and went to get a new one. I wait at least 30 minutes for another drink. She brought my new drink ALONG with the food we order by that time, which was the half rib with fries and garlic mashed potatoes. (It wasn't busy at all by the way) My husband ordered the four cheese noodles with seasoned chicken tenders.
To start off, my fries and potatoes were completely unsalted and nearly cold. The whole thing of ribs was not meat, just fat and not warm. My husband's noodles were way overcook and the whole bowl was filled with what looked like WATER and barely cooked bacon. There was absolutely no kind of cheese on the dish he ordered??? Noodles tastes very plain with no seasoning and the "seasoned" chicken tenders were so small (there were only 2 of them) and barely any meat on them.
We've never been so disappointed, as soon as I finished my cold and gross meal and my husband only took 2-3 bite of his, we were ready to leave. (By the way this is our first time coming here) We took the server we were took and would like to pay and she handed us the receipt and walked away only to return 30 more minutes later while we were waiting with our card already. It would've seemed pretty pointless complaining about the food, knowing we will never come back here. And this is why, when people want to go out to eat and don't leave a tip... it's obviously for a reason and this was a big reason why!! Sincerely a customer who paid $32 of bad service and gross food.
There was a commercial about riblets being back. I went there for dinner for my 44 wedding anniversary. No riblets at 7:30pm. Order tenders basket. My wife order a steak tendera was 4 to order very small cut. My food was served. My wife about 15 minutes later. When we enter restaurant 25 mins. wait with plenty of empty tables. Never seen manager or asst. No meet and greet. Lanes Ave location Jacksonville, FL Feb. 02, 2017. No receipt given. Paid in cash. I use to be in restaurant management. Can use lot of improvement.
Inside, the menu is good, along with service. It's clean and reasonably quiet. Outside, their car side delivery is great, fast and convenient... Just call it in and pull into the designated area and it's brought out to you.
Visited Applebee's during Birthday dinner. Ordered steak on menu 15.99. No size specifications. Server placed burnt stuck to pan juices and 2 small strips of some kind of meat. I asked for manager he came and said “I don’t see anything wrong with it, it looks like 6 inches”. Left the table, came back later and said ”So you never touched it at all”. I said “Nope”. He credited the ticket. I sit there 3 hours with family with no dinner because he refused to take it back and I wasn’t putting that trash in my mouth.
Ok y'all don't ever eat at the Applebee's on Charleston and Decatur Blvd. I asked for a medium rare steak and they brought me a rare one. So I told the waitress and the manager brought the same exact steak back. All they did was throw it on the grill for a few more minutes. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that a health code violation?
I went to have dinner one year ago with my husband at Applebee's, he ordered steak and after finishing it he felt sick all the night. He had nausea and spasms so he decided not to go to Applebees again but the last Halloween I decided to go to have dinner there and I hardly convinced him to go, we had the appetizer first and then l ordered pasta with chicken it was cold and even before finishing it I felt sick and had the same feeling my husband had before!! So this time I decided never to be back again. It was just a scary experience that was suitable for a Halloween day!
Waitress took my order; America burger. She quickly ask how I like my meat, while looking away I said "well done". She walked away. I said wait I want chili cheese on my fries, response ok. Food came. I took a bite into a medium rare burger. I only ate the edges because I had not ate in 5 hours.
Service good. Food was the worst I ever had. From the salad to the burger and don't forget the nasty fries. No words can describe the nasty tasting food I got from Applebee's Spokane Wa. Don't waste your time or money!!!
I came to town here in Lodi California. My sister and I decided to have dinner at Applebee's and with it being busy Saturday night we decided to seat ourselves in the bar, service was really slow! Food wasn't hot and steak was not that great and bar drinks were kool aid drinks, couldn't taste any liquor at all, and menu price was $5.99 but got charged $7.99 on both drinks and Applebee's would not adjust price so I told them I wouldn't be back and they were fine with that.
Our server never asked about how we wanted our food cooked so my daughter called her back. I told her to make it well well done. I'm ok with it being burnt. My meat wasn't even fully cooked. Outside was a light brown but when I looked inside 85% of the center was still red. Also the menu didn't say onions on it because I don't eat them and yet they were on my meat.
Vomiting and extreme sharp stomach pains currently. When we told the manager she took everyone's plates. Didn't even ask if my daughter was finished with her ribs. I will never eat Applebee's again. The noises coming from my stomach are actually scaring me. They took my burger off the bill. However they put the cheaper appetizer in the two for twenty and charged me for the more expensive appetizer as well as the more expensive 3rd meal. But I guess they get to pick what two meals out of the three. 2 for 20 qualifying meals will be in that 2/20.
From actually visiting an Applebee’s in Bell Garden, CA and calling customer service relations; my experience with Applebee’s by far the worst in my life. Anthony at the restaurant has poor service, he’s rude and sarcastic! Mariah at human relations needs to learn what it means to have sympathy and understand situations as they may all not be the same. Know I have to wait to speak to the owners, where in the world is this okay?! Applebee’s human relations said it’s up to the franchised owners discretion on a refund. I will never visit any location and will make sure all my friends and family hear about all this negative feedback and my unpleasant experiences, yes experiences!
Hello. I visited the Applebee's in La Vale, Maryland Sunday Oct 15th around 2-3 pm. I ordered ribs. When they arrived I noticed that they were very dry, so I turned them over to find a dirty plastic cup top. It was a large white plastic top. It appeared that the ribs were taken out of the trash. The ribs were not hot but smothered in barbecue sauce. My Fiancée salad appeared to have pinkish toilet paper in it. I told the manager but she just relieved us of paying the bill. I was nauseated and shocked. I felt like that manager should have gotten to the bottom of how these items got into our food. Applebee's was one of my fiancée's favorite restaurant but not anymore.
We went as a family, to the Applebee's in Medford Oregon. There were 4 adults and 3 kids. The mozzarella sticks were cold, and the chicken in one dish was like rubber, so we sent it back. Another dish was pasta that was almost hard, and so spicy that it was inedible. Two of us ordered hamburgers which were ok, but because the chicken dish was so bad, my daughter sent it back and asked for a hamburger with a fried egg on it as a replacement. When it arrived, it was a barbeque burger, but she ate it anyway because by this time we had been there an hour with 3 kids. All in all it was very far below expectations, and it seems like a trend for this location. We won't be going back any time soon, and if we do, we will order something that's hard to mess up, like a salad.
