My husband and I only go out to eat once a week and therefore we expect service.We are not snobs, nor demanding, but We do not expect to go into a restaurant, be seated and then be ignored. Completely. Funny when we were walked to our booth I said to hubby "look at the dirty tables." The restaurant was empty... More

We were seated immediately and served quickly by an attentive waitress. Our food was hot and delicious. We chose not to use the electronic ordering device at our booth. We really appreciated that the printed menu gave us calorie information for each item listed, so we could make a more informed food choice.

Great food and very good service. This place is open until 2 am so is perfect if you arrive in town late or need a late night spot.

Our hotel was right next to this restaurant and we had several meals here. A few that we took back to our room, but the ones that we ate there, we has a wonderful server by the name of Marco. If you are able to visit here, please request Marco - he will NOT disappoint you!

We were there on a busy Friday night after the day at the Strawberry Festival. There was a wait on the table, but they got us in and out fairly quickly.

We were able to walk to Applebee's from the Hampton Inn, which made it convenient. We were seated in 15 minutes, which during rush hour was impressive. We ordered our food and had it in less than 15 minutes. Everything was delicious.

Kind of a mixed review, I know. Not usually disappointed here, but on this particular night, it took prodding our server several times to refresh our beverages. What was supposed to be a quick dine out turned into a 2-hour voyage of misadventure. The food was wrong, drinks were wrong, poor attendance and no social skills. Overall disaster. May return...

Paula and I were traveling back to Kings Bay, GA after visiting with her sister and stopped here for dinner. First I would like to say that this is one of the cleanest Applebee's I have been in. Not only was the parking lot clean, but the entry and waiting area were also spotless. We got there and we were... More
