I use to LOVE eating here, but it seems things have declined for this restaurant chain as a whole. Today, my friend and I ordered the 2 for $20. Our appetizer was the Spinach and Artichoke Dip...YUCK! The chips were stale and the dip tasted NASTY. I ordered the Fiesta Lime Chicken, the chicken tasted good but the rice was... More

Attention to detail is non existent concept in every area of this restaurant. It started with dirty eating utensils and continued downhill from there. It only takes a second for your server to glance at the knives and forks to see if food is encrusted on them prior to placing them at your table for your dining pleasure. Our server... More

Stopped in for evening meal and waited for a seat and then waited for service. A table next to us waited twice as long as we did. Food good but could not track down server for drink refills.

We went with family (6 people) because the wait at other restaurants was extremely long (2 hours). This place was crowded, too, and very noisy. We were understanding about waiting a little longer for service but our waitress was awful. She told us our appetizers were on their way to us and 20 minutes later, still nothing. She avoided eye...

Grandchildren ordered cheeseburger sliders from children's menu...rolls were so hard they couldn't eat them. I ordered a medium burger....it was so well done I couldn't eat it. I showed it to waitress who seemed embarrassed and she called the manager. The manager completely agreed with me and apologized and took it off the bill. I would have rated it a... More

Every time we eat at this place, we leave feeling nauseas or some kind of sickly Lately it seems it happens no matter what we get, whether it's the basic wings, or a burger. The staff and manager have always made it right, but it's not worth feeling terrible after

We chose to have Sunday dinner at Applebee's because it was located close to the Tanger Outlets and we were shopping there. We had the 2 for $20.00 meals and had to bring some home, it was way too much for us. Our waitress's name was Ashley, and she couldn't have been any nicer to us. The meal was wonderful... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner after a day of touring the area. Very friendly staff. Our server was excellent and attentive. The food is always consistently excellent at Applebee's and this was no different. The value is great with 2 for $20 dinner deal. management stopped by to check on our satisfaction. Would visit again.

Good bar service but food was lukewarm. The food, I think, would have been tasty; just not served fresh and hot. Noisy, but that's to be expected.
