The experience was disappointing. The food was exceptionally salty this night. Our appetizer never came but the waitress was pleasant and removed from our bill. Was looking forward to nice and tender ribs but got the vastly overlooked version. More like jerky than tender baby back ribs.

Food was mediocre at best. New menu with unusual combinations. Waiter wasn't helpful or attentive. Items arrived with incorrect sides. Wouldn't recommend. Go to fast food before wasting money here.

Had Asian Chicken Salad and 6 oz steak. The Asian chicken salad was good but the dressing was skimpy. The steak was tough and the beans with it were not good at all. Coffee and desert were fine and the service was prompt. Good service and good food

Well it's been a long day and we were headed to Applebee's in Salem. We had already discussed getting several appetizers and sharing them. We'll we got there and the host was nowhere to be found so a nice young lady started to help us. The host finally arrived and asked one of the waitresses if he sat us in... More

We'd had a few experiences here some time ago where things just weren't to our liking and we could have a better experience nearby elsewhere. However, menu revisions resulted in a much more pleasing meal on this visit. Enjoyed the tomato basil soup in particular. Meal presentation has improved, as well as the variety of options available.

Picked up Carside to go ordered a platter and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of food......I am not a big fan of Wings but these were Delicious! The only thnig was I asked for ranch sauce and didn't receive it however I.should've checked before I pulled away....I can always find something on menu and dine here monthly at least.....

We were sorry we stopped. The food was very spicy. The steaks were grossly overlooks and not edible. The manager quickly addressed the problem and adjusted the check. He also gave the kids free dessert but unfortunately that does not make up for the fact that the children didn't eat their meals to begin with. Disappointing for a chain we... More

Big fan of the two for $25 menu at Applebee's. They alway have a great steak you can count on, until last night. Both my wife and I had a steak. Mine was great, as usual. Hers was a little tough. We mentioned it to the waiter and she immediately offered another steak. As she had already eaten most of... More

Have been a frequent customer for 20 yrs. While the menu changes fairly often it is consistently interesting and good. The service is very good, especially since it is usually very busy
