Had a great salad. They have so many different sides too. Delicious meal. MIL wanted a plain chicken breast and they accommodated.

I recently had lunch at this restaurant and found the food to be well prepared and delicious. I ordered the Shrimp Wonton Stirfry which was suggested by a friend and was quite good. The server was friendly and courteous. This restaurant is a good choice for lunch especially if you have a limited amount of time to dine in.

Some days are good and some aren't so good. Sometimes even when theres not alot of customers you have to wait on servers to come take your order.

I was in town with a club baseball team for the NCBA playoffs over a weekend in early May. Granted, having 20-24 guys walk in the front door in about 20 seconds is probably overwhelming to some places. But it was 8pm and we offered to split up into groups as there was no chance of us all sitting together.... More

We ate Chinese chicken salads for an early lunch. I had fried chicken and my wife had grilled. Of course, the fried was far better....but not according to my wife. We both enjoyed them immensely. The dressing was delicious, but they gave us way too much, on the side. We both had a large and small cup....I ate all the... More

As someone who has worked as a supervisor in the janitorial industry, ever time I am there I want to scrub the place floor to ceiling. The bathrooms are terrible - even have dispensers falling off the walls. Everything has a sheen of grime and oil. Floors are slick. I have had good service by nice people, however, management needs... More

Sometimes it is much better than others. Its hit or miss usually not in between. I like the appetizers wings, dips, etc. The steaks are sometimes wonderful fresh tender but other times they are chewy and not good at all. We don't have many places in Martinsville so we eat here once in a while

I sat at the bar for dinner. The bartender was very sweet and provided great service. The food here was the exact same at every other Applebee's. But that's what I was looking for. I just wanted to go somewhere that I knew what to expect. The only difference in this Applebees.was the sewage smell coming from the bar. I... More

We went here for lunch while I was in town for work and was slightly disappointed. It was not what I usually experience at Applebee's. Meals off of the lunch menu were much smaller than I've experienced at other Applebee's, while it was enough the presentation was not that good because my soup bowl was only half full and the...

If you live in Martinsville you know besides fast food there are not many dining choices. Over the past few years this Applebee's has done some nice remodeling that give the restaurant a nice atmosphere. Appetizers are half price after nine so I love to get some late night snacks. Went here to eat just last week and our waitress... More
