I am just not impressed anymore with mass produced, over thought, uninteresting food. Applebee's just doesn't get what a customer wants. We went to the Stuart location recently and I just wanted a nice dinner. What we got was a server who was disinterested in anything we wanted or had to say, food that was luke warm, and drinks that were often left dry and unfilled. The bad thing was, it wasn't even busy! I can forgive a server that is stretched too thin over 15 tables or more on a busy night, but when the place is practically empty, c'mon! I worked in the food industry before and I know what is possible when serving people. If you can't make an honest effort, get another line of work. As it is, I will not be bringing my family back for a second meal. There are too many other fine establishments to try.
