I have been there several times, but will never go back. I've had several waiters or waitresses who were unfriendly. You ask for something and they forget to bring it, you ask someone else and they forget to bring it also. The plates and silverware were dirty and spotty. Some food was lukewarm. They don't even have Splenda on the table for your tea or coffee you have to ask for it. The food really just isn't that great. The window sills were dirty. Its just not a good place to go. I won't go back.
Wait was 1 hour. No one was busy. The waiter was rude & if the manager had any idea of what a manager does she would have fired him on the spot. Never in my 5 years of working in the food industry have I ever seen the lack of service depicted by Applebee's in poplar bluff. If Applebee's corporate HQ knew about this I hope they would fire the manager.
We were seated quickly,but everything went downhill from there. The place had only two other couples in the whole restaurant,and it took 15 minutes before our waitress showed up. It took another 40 minutesd to get our food. We sthought well, at least it has to be fresh, right. Wrong! I asked for a medium steak,it was burned,my baked potato was half raw, and my steamed vegetables were cold. If I were a chef, there is no way that I would send that food out to anyone. We would rather them had admit that the food was screwed up and wait for a new meal to be cooked. I was so disappointed that they actually tried tio serve that swill to a paying customer, so when the manager finally made an appearance and offered to cook another meal, we just got up and left.

I have been to applebees many times in the past and it was great but it has gone down hill from what it once was..We waited 5min to be seated then we ordered owr food and waited 20 min almost for owr food after i got my food the waitress didn't even bring me any thing to eat with! i waited and waited for her to walk by but she never did then we saw her siting over where you wait to be seated after i got my own knife and fork..the hole time we was there she didn't even refill owr drinks but one time right before we left which i could have under stood if they would have actually been busy! Plus it was no where near closing either...anyway i went to the bath room and came out before we left and she had the nerve to be complaining about us after she thought all of us was gone b/c my husband didn't leave a tip! to her manager but my question is how does she think she diserved a tip after doing nothing but bringing a 2 plates out and filling up our cups only once the whole time we was there!
