My son worked there for over 4 weeks and received his first check a week late, still waiting for his other check. He was called stupid and bad worker on a regular basis. Told he sucked and lots of other horrid things by managers and co workers.

He was afraid to go back after I complained about him needing his check. DON'T WORK HERE! Boycott this horrid place!

BOWIE, MARYLAND -- Please pay with cash the next time you go to Apple Bee's. I had the worst experience in my life at the Bowie, MD location. After dinning I gave the waitress my card and when she came back with the receipt booklet my wasn't in it and she claimed she did not know what happened to it. The very next day I had over 12 transactions on my card and the only thing Apple Bee's offered me was an $30 gift card. WTF $30 I had over $400 taken out of my account not did I have to borrow money for my kids I had to postpone my daughters birthday party what an inconvenience. 37 Replies - Latest reply on 11/04/2011Add reply

They have poor employee support of the stores in sc. while eating I overheard a manager tell an employee at 2 different restaurants that they couldn't pay them overtime even though they had worked it. These employees were given cash money out of the register by the manager both were kitchen help. the head office is located within an hour of these sites. one manager told her entire staff that they would report the next morning even though the highway patrol said to get off the roads she refused to close the store early and threaten to fire any who left early. I ask for one of my favorite server and she walked over and actually told me she had been fired for leaving early. I removed my party to another restaurant immediately. I have decided to vote with my dollar from now on.4 Replies - Latest reply on 02/13/2010Add reply

After some thought and deliberations we settled on a new item, "Won Ton Tacos" which were priced at $6.95.
Our waitress "Liz" put in the order and within 15 minutes we were served a delicious, spicy appetizer, a pulled pork with dressing "taco".
The whole Megillah including appetizer, beverages and tip cost only 20 dollars and left us completely satisfied with the food and the friendly service.
We will be back for more of the same!
DICKSON, TENNESSEE -- In October we were a party of nine visiting our local Applebee's. Our Orders were placed and received. Food was ok except that the steak I ordered was blood red after having specified I wanted it well done. After 2 more trips to the kitchen, the manager came out with my food and told me they just couldn't "get the red out". He set it down before me and made a hasty retreat to another part of the restaurant. My dining companions were shocked at this display of customer service and so was I. Needless to say, we will never go to another Appleby's .11 Replies - Latest reply on 11/15/2010Add reply
"Tell us about your visit", so I tried. I looked at two separate web sites, one was statistics, and the other a litany of complaints! Neither was what I was trying to find! I thought it was a wonderful gesture to offer a free lunch to veterans, the service was outstanding, and the food delicious! I have no complaints!

The employees are always, never fails, gathered at a table in the restaurant during business hours. This is an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience for me and other I'm sure. It seems that they would have another area that isn't in the view of customers to gather all night. 12 Replies - Latest reply on 11/01/2009Add reply

BRIGHTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I ate for the third time in my local Applebee's in Brighton, MA. Since I am no stranger to food after cooking and waiting on tables for over 6 years and dining out frequently from fast foods to the most elegant dining establishments, I was absolutely dismayed by the reaction a certain male individual dressed in a wrinkled open neck shirt came to my table after I had informed the wait staff that the dish brought out to me was not haddock that I had ordered. The appearance and taste, confirmed by my dining partner, were more of a fairly flat fillet of Tilapia. The male promptly said without even closely surveying the dish "We serve only two kinds of fish here-Haddock, and Tilapia--that's Haddock". To someone with my lengthy and extensive experience, that left a very ugly taste. The wait staff promptly removed my dish, and brought back the real McCoy after another 10 minutes.

But, where was the "manager"? Why, he was at the other side holding up the wall! Complaint e-mailed to HQ. Response was they would look into the matter and may have to "re-educate" the "manager".
Alas, I will never go back.
I went to Applebees for dinner one night. I ordered my food and it almost took a hour to get my food. Finally the waitress came to the table to deliver our food and it was nasty and cold. I mean cold. Thanks for the wonderful, great service. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 06/12/2011Add reply
BANGOR, MAINE -- I have to say I was very disappointed when I visited your restaurant in Bangor, Maine last week. Of the four tables around us two had people sending their food back to the kitchen because it was improperly cooked, and one did not get what she ordered. By the time she actually received her meal, her two daughters had finished their meals so she declined the meal brought to her belatedly. I did not receive the garlic bread with my meal until I was 3/4 finished. It took 15 minutes for one very small piece of garlic bread to reach me. So, as I watched all my neighbors leave in disgust I visited the bathroom, which if I had visited it before I had eaten I would have walked out of the restaurant because it was absolutely disgusting. There was caked on dried up soap and soap scum on the sink, the towel dispenser, there was urine all over the floor and the wastebasket was overflowing. The mirror was caked with soap scum and other disgusting things I don't dare mention.

I have to say this was the most disappointing dining experience I've had in the past twenty years, especially since this was my birthday. It will be a very long time before I visit one of your restaurants again, and if I do I will definitely go in the bathroom before I order anything to eat.
