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.
Terrible Service, Poor food..
Went here for dinner after not being able to get a table at another (much better) restaurant on a Friday evening. When we showed up (shortly before 6PM), there were about 10 people in the place (which should have tipped us off). We were promptly seated, but then had to wait over 30 minutes until a waitress made her first stop to ask us for drink orders! By then, our two year old daughter had been screaming from hunger for nearly 10 minutes (how could they have missed this?)
To their credit, the rest of the meal came quickly (heck, there were maybe 25 people in the place by this time). Unfortunately, it was pretty disgusting. Overly fried, greasy, and unflavorful.
We won't be back to this Applebee's anytime soon. There are plenty of places around the nearby Chesterfield Mall in the same price range that are MUCH better.
