My husband and I recently stopped here for dinner and likely won't be back. First, we got seated and after waiting and waiting for our server to show up, we had to get up and ask if we had a server. The chips we got with our appetizer were extremely greasy and the rest of our meal was mediocre.

After working all day we did not want to cook and this was close by, so we stopped for a bite. Although the young guy at the front obviously was pretty clueless as far as customer service, we were seated fairly promptly for a friday night. We both decided on the Bourbon Chicken and Shrimp with Spinach dip as an... More

Went here so that we could watch the Nascar race on 8-20-16, as they have TV's right at the bar. The bartender was very helpful and put the race on a TV directly in front of us. She recommended dishes to try which we did and they were great!!! I wish I would have caught her name because she is... More

After a long flight and little to eat we decided to try find a place to dine and have a few drinks. This Applebees was close to our motel and was still serving after 9 pm so it was a no brainer. The food and drinks were average and our waitress was nice enough but overall nothing special here.

Lunch early afternoon was terrible. Never had such bad service or slow food service. No refills and totally the worst food we have eaten at any Applebees in the United States. Just a total mess the place was so unclean everywhere!

I have given the other Appleton applebee's location 2 tries and both times things were messed up. My godchild was celebrating his birthday and he really wanted to go ' his mother refuses to step foot in the place after some bad times of her own" so I agreed to take him, with hopes of it being ok.

Microwave mustn't be working properly. The only thing colder than the middle of my sandwich was the heart and service talent of the blonde waitress who obviously can't do anything but avoid doing her job with any type of personality - seriously. A can of dry paint has more personality. I've seen people going to the electric chair with more... More

Went to Applebee's today so my daughter could use there free wifi and I could use my birthday coupon dessert. The manager Tim was great. We got a waitress that we really did not see at all other than to take our order and bring our bill out too us. The male waiter that brought our food out was great!... More
