We visited the restaurant tonight. We ordered our meal and at approximately 8 pm. The lighs dimmed. When I inquired as to why, I was told that they always dim and automatically. I looked around the place and noticed the ilghts had not dimmed in the smoking section. The waitress left us and the next thing we knew the lights had dimmed in the smoking section and our llights had dimmed more. The saddest part was when a couple came in and the greeter got up on a chair to shine a spot light on them so they could read the menu. Yes it as that dark. We have been in this restaurant a few times at
different times in the evening and the lights have never been turned down.
If you decide to visit this restaurant make sure you go EARLY. I also ordered a refill on my water, the glass was dirty on the outside, (from the feel) I couldn't tell if the inside was also dirty so I left it
This is the spot during the week to be because the appetizers are half off after 9pm Monday-Thursday. There is no need to order main course dishes when you can load up on the appetizers and make a meal! lol
My wife and I went on a Thursday. It wasn't very busy, but we waited more than 30 minutes to get our food. I never received the side salad that I ordered (it appeared on the bill), and the steak came well done when I asked for medium. The vegetables were undercooked and flavorless. We also received bread after asking not to. If you like Applebee's, I recommend driving to the next closest location.
