Applebees - Terrible
PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA -- I stopped for a steak and my waiter was nice and helped me pick out a steak. I don't usually order steaks at Applebees. I also ordered a glass of wine to enjoy while waiting for dinner.
Next thing I know this piece of meat and bland red potatoes and. Portobello mushroom with spinach were put down in front of me by some girl. I told her I never got my wine and changed my drink order to a Coke as I knew I wouldn't drink 2 glasses after eating. ( it was two for one) so I took one bite of this awful, tough steak that sat on a bunch of onions that didn't look appetizing all I asked for steak sauce. Oh and when the plate was plopped on the table in front of me I had to ask for a fork to eat it with! The mushroom was decent and I ate that. I ate about a little more then a quarter of the steak and could not eat anymore of the overcooked flavorless hunk of meat I ordered it medium and it was very well done
The waiter asked if I wanted a box and I said no he asked if it was tough and I said yes. I don't like to send things back so I just didn't complain.
The manager came over and now I am embarrassed and had to explain that it was not good. He did offer something else but I declined out of embarrassment. It was bad enough when I was seated the hostess said " just one" as if it is strange to grab a bite alone! At that point I just wanted to get out. There were loud obnoxious drunk people at the bar The food and atmosphere were lousy. The manager did bring me a diet Coke to go busy I don't drink diet Coke! So I got my steak Coke and a bill for over 15.00 add in a tip and I was out 21.00 for one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had! Very disappointed.
