The meal was very good. We had to wait a very long time for our drinks. It was over another hour for our meals to be served to us. I paid cash and had to wait almost 10 minutes because they didn't have change to give me.

Food was pretty good. Our waitress was very nice. We did the lunch special "Pick two". It was typical for Applebees. It was fine, just not outstanding. We will likely go again.

We had been out on a boat all day and came home with a desire for some soup. We checked the menu on-line and it had some good choices. We ordered tomato basil soup and a steak quesadilla. A petite treat just right for two. From 3-6 there are some selected appetizers 1/2 off and draft beers are half off... More

We were not impressed by this Applebee's. We went in to pick up our food that we had ordered and asked for some ketchup and mustard. We were assured that they would bring everything out. We were asked to go out to our car and wait. They brought everything out to us and when we got back to our hotel,... More

Oriental salad needs more lettuce to be a salad, less dressing, and a large/small dish option like it used to. The two other Applebee's I've been to (ithaca and Hornell) did a better job. However, I only went to the Rome one once, so it could just be coincidental. The service was fair and friendly.

Have been here before, and it was always just average. Recently had a very large to go order and the service was very good.

The only real problem I have is with carside service. 9 times out of 10 our food is messed up. We were in the habit of checking it before leaving because there was always something wrong. We have since stopped because we go sick of asking for it to be fixed. Eating in is average. The service and the food... More

The food is acceptable though their steaks are petty iffy. Salad is extra and there are better places around where you get the full dining experience.

I have been there 2 times over the last few month and it seems they can not get it together for some reason. I wanted to give them one more chance just to see if was me or them, and it turned out to be them. My food did not taste to good and when I asked for a booth... More

You know what you're going to get when you come here. I hardly ever do, because with so many local restaurants in this town, I like to try something different. It's like an upscale McDonald's, competent and corporate, but ... boring.
