Sad , poor management, bad food, uncooked veggies. Tried to reserve a table for 13 but would not take. Watched a party of 10 walk by sit eat and leave before we ever sat down. Service poor, meat raw and over cooked at the same time. Veggies under cooked , generally bad experience, would not recommend.
My brother and sister in law were given a Gift Card for Christmas and went Tuesday evening, 12/27/11. They said they were really disappointed in the service. First it took awhile for a waitress to come and take their drink order - actually they never came specifically for the drink order. they asked what to drink along with their food order. They ordered an appetizer first but were not given any eating utensils. After asking several times, they finally received napkins and utensils but one set was dirty. They had to wait for another good while for a replacement. It took an hour for their food to be served and the order was not correct. They ate anyway since it took so long to get it in the first place and was ready to go. Customers at the table next to them had similar problems. They either have inexperienced wait staff, not ample wait staff and also short on cooks. They were really disappointed in the service and the food. It is truly embarrassing and disappointing to give someone a gift to a particular restaurant only to learn they had a non enjoyable experience. Applebees in North Texas was one of our favorite go to places in the area we lived. Applebees in Corpus Christi really needs to shape up.
i went to this restraunt about 2 years ago with a friend and the first time i went is was great but the second time i went i was pissed off to say the least they had ok food but i ordered a mixed drink (pina colada) and it was a frozen one and i was maybe a third of the way into the drink and i thought it was a chunk of ice but no it wasnt it was glass and not from the glass i was drinking out of so i told the waitress and she had nerve to ask if i wanted another and i said well of course not and im not paying for the drink i will pay for the food but not the drink because if i would have just swallowed the peice of glass it could have cut me on the inside very displeased at the restraunt because of carelessness. So im afraid to eat there again.
A friend and I were at Applebee's in Corpus Christi on 05-31-10, it was the worst lunch experience ever. It did not take them long to sit us, take our drink order, and bring our drinks. However; the food order was a whole other issue!! We ordered ribeye steak and it took them at least 25 min. to figure out they did not have ribeye. The manager came out and told us they only had 6 ribeye steaks and they were all out to other tables before they got to our order. We asked for the only other choice of steak--serloin. We waited another 30 min. & I guess the waitress finally realized she kept passing us every time she took out food to other tables that had gotten there way after us and we still had no food!! She said she had just cked on our order & it would be right out. She then came back about 10 min later excusing themselves and letting us know the food would be right out and it would be on the house. We were about to walk out but since she said it was on the house we decided to stay...waited another 20 min or so than the food finally arrive just to disappoint us. The only thing that was hot was the steak and it was also tough and tasteless. The baked potato and everything else was cold, so cold the butter did not even melt!! We ate what we could since by this time we were starving and run out of the place never to come back!!!!!!!!! Ironic--the only reason we went there in the first place was because I had given my friend a gift certificate for Christmas 09 and it had never been used. My friend still has the gift certificate but, NO, IT WILL NOT BE USED AT THIS PARTICULAR LOCATION. Maybe Applebee's somewhere else will be better. :(
I hated Applebees! Did not take them very long to seat us but once they did we were waiting for 20 minutes for someone to even take our order! They got everyone's food mixed up including the table next to ours. The only reason why we went in the first place was because we had a free meal from a birthday. STILL WASN'T WORTH IT BEING FREE.By the time we had left we had been there for a total of 1 1/2, once we got our food we ate and left quickly, so you can only imagine how long we sat there before our food came. Was not a busy time of day either.
We ate there today, and were initially seated in a booth, on the side closest to the theater. After waiting too long for our drinks, we noticed that there was a large roach crawling around on the window sill next to us. We still didn't see the waitress for a long while, so we moved to a new table. The waitress never even bothered to ask what was wrong. The manager passed by, and we told him about the roach, and he didn’t apologize, or even seem surprised, as if this was a regular event. We waited for almost an hour for our food, and the place wasn't even very busy. The waitress brought the appetizers (soup) out at the same time as the entrees. The waitress didn't check on us very often, and when she did bring new glasses of water and tea, she left the old glasses on the table. By the time we were finished, the table was completely cluttered. It took another 20 minutes or so to get our ticket. My best advice is to go somewhere else. I won't be going to this place ever again.
They have one or two things that I like, but it took forever to get the food and the check, and they charged someone at the table for extra gravy even though it was ordered to heat up the food that was cold by the time it got there. My desert was melted by the time I got that and the waitress didn't think any of it was her concern.
Juat want to pay a complement to our server on the day of our vist 11/07/08. Her name is Tamara J.,she deserves to be recognizes because her service was great! She attended our needs immidiatly with out hesitation and kept our iced tea full. She was presice and on time with our whole order ordeal, from the moment we sat down until the time we were done with our meal. She was very friendly and wore a pretty smile on her face. She is an asset to Applebee's, if we are in town again, we will most certainly drop in and have her wait on us.
Thank you for your time and again, my compliments to a well deserved waitress and her service.
