    The service was good, but refills were a little slow. We went around 10, so it was a little late, however the food seemed like it had been sitting in a warmer or something, really dry, and out of several things.

    After a night out with friends, we were hoping to snag a sweet treat on our way out of town. Applebee's Blondie popped into my head and cravings. I hadn't had one in years.

    So we pop off of 581 and park at this location. My initial thoughts as we walked in were to turn around and walk back out. And we should have.

    The entryway and hostess stand were both a messy disaster of an area. Part of the issue is just the flow of foot traffic here. So that's on the builders. But the cleanliness, or lack of in this instance, is on the employees and managers there.

    We waited quite a while to have someone seat us. The gentleman who did finally seat us had been busy cleaning with something that didn't appear to be picking much of anything up. He kinda just mumbled at us to ask if we wanted to be seated. Once seated, at a table that felt like it had some sort of waxy, greasy coating, we were handed menus and our drink order was taken by the sweeper-turned-turned-host-turned-waiter. He was pleasant once we were seated. Perhaps he's just overworked doing everything up front.

    We got our drinks in mostly clean glasses. Ew. And we bravely ordered the Blondie because my cravings were in control. We got it. It was not good. It seemed old. The sauce kinda glopped out of the cup. Ew. And the skillet really wasn't hot enough to do anything to melt or make things seem good. The overall flavor was meh.

    We ate at it. Requested the check. Paid leaving a 25% tip and left.

    We will not be back. Ever. No thanks.

    The sharks bowl was the best part of the meal. I got the burbon chicken and shrimp with red potatoes as you can tell from the pictures the potatoes are burnt and dry  the mushroom were burnt to the bottom of the pan on the picture it was if the we're fresh mushrooms and the ones I got we're clearly canned the chicken was ok in the middle but the edges were dry and the shrimp were tiny. My boyfriend got the burbon steak with the same result. Tsk tsk Applebee's
    Although the server was a delight.

    Asked waitress to place my lemons on a separate plate instead placed all lemons six in the glass and I had to remove them by hand myself. No Ketchup or sweet and low on the table. No wonder Applebees is slowly going out of business.

    Service was horrible and the restaurant was filthy. Ordered a steak medium well and it came to the table rare. Asked for the manager and he immediately blamed it on someone else. This used to be a great place for a good meal and decent happy hour. Not anymore. This location has really hit rock bottom over the years.
