Big portions of mainstream American fare, served up in a convivial, family atmosphere..
A low-key, friendly environment attracts plenty of families to this reliable chain. Kids in the big booths--often clutching free balloons and crayons--usually outnumber adults sitting at the bar. The menu offers filling American fare with no surprises, from mozzarella sticks and nachos to rollups and burgers. Entrees include steaks, fajitas and main dish salads. The calorie-conscious can select from a list of Weight Watchers-inspired dishes like mesquite chicken salad and grilled tilapia with mango salsa.
Run of the mill...ho hum.
Visited tonight, 12/16/07. Seated immediately at 7:15pm. Host was not very friendly but waitress (Lisa) more than made up for it. Lisa was very accomadating and friendly. The food was average priced but was not something to rave about. I had the house sirlon and so did my son. Mine was rather rubbery and his was actually better than mine. So much for consistency. My daughter's salad was not good at all. My wife had the chicken alfreado with broclli and says it was very good. There was supposed to be toast with it. When inquired with our waitress she offered to add the piece to the meal for .30 something cents or .99 cents for 4 pieces. Trival I know but you should get what the menu says you are supposed to have. The current state rating is 95.5 A which is good in comparison with other restaurants in the area. Overall it was a filling meal at best and nothing more.
In my opinion the best thing I've had to date from their menu is the quesadilla burger. It's also one of the cheapest on the menu.
Going Below Average on this.... I'm not sure why, in a franchise world where we have come to expect one store or restaurant within a chain to rise up to the standards of all others, the Garner Applebee's restaurant falls so short in customer service. My wife and I have encountered inordinate wait times (while employees visit at the wait stand) on not one, nor two, but three consecutive visits. With several new restaurants in the area, AppleGold should take a hard look at how this particular unit's manager is running the show!
