The vast majority of the time the parking lot is empty and i know why now. What a joke. That is the WORST applebees i have ever set foot in! Why do the people in this town tolerate such a piss poor managed restaurant? If you don't believe me, go to the one in Mt Sterling, or visit one in Lexington. The difference is very noticable. Here, the employees are walking around texting, standing in groups, anything but doing their job theyre being paid to do. Its mind boggling. I don't know about the rest of you, but this is your town, your Applebees. Make some calls to corporate, get them to make some changes. Stop settling for half-ass service! Make sure when you visit this establishment or any other that you get what you're paying for, nothing less!

I have to agree. Maysville really knows how to mess up restaurants. They are all that way. Tumbleweed is better in Florence. Bob Evans is better in any town. Frisches is the same way.

The only time you may see the servers running around Doing their best is when they have all their work caught up and all their tables are good at the moment. So they stand there til you need something else or the get another table or they have another task that has o be completed. And maybe the one yousee together are training another employee o helping them complete a job

Highly doubtful!! But good explanation to cover up!! Witness this myself. I am also new to this town 2 weeks in ate there last week. I managed an Applebees in IA and what I saw here is nothing like we enforced there.. its lousy service and for the OP they have been reported.. Resources: Friends with Corp.

Ok, smarty, what did your employees do when all side work was complete and all tables are at a point where they don't need anything? I go there often and have worked there and if you ask me those girls are on top of it! There is no break room, so what are they supposed to do

The last few times I have been to Applebees the food was horrible. It was cold, or just really off in flavor. The first time I sent it back, and it really didn't fix anything. After that the wife and I just picked at our meals and left. The waitress was rude, and the management not much better. It's a shame, it started out nicely but has gone down hill.

It's THE WORST GD APPLEBEE IN THE NATION. It's pitiful. I literally told them I wasn't paying for the crap they had on my plate. I'd taken two bites. They tried to tell me they would call the police! The police! Wtf! I begged that little rude b1tch mgr to call the cops. I told them I'd file attempted murder on them bc if I'd finished that meal I'd have died the next poop I had. Bar none. THE WORST APPLEBEE ON THE PLANET. the lil hooker servers are always sniffling and snortin after doing their drugs. That's the only time they hustle is to go to the crapper to suck more drugs up their face. Jesus fn Christ, I mean it's really really fn AWFUL!

My wife and I enjoy Applebees, but you are right the service SUCKS.. It takes an average of 15-20 minutes just to get your drink order and another 10 just to get them! By the time your ready to give your drink order you have had time to look at the menu and your ready to place your food order. The only time they are in any kind of hurry is during lunch when the stop watch is laying on your table. I've been to Applebees all over and Maysville is definatly the best of the worst! IDK if its management or the social circle they have behind the bar... I wish they would fix it!

I haven't been back to Applebees in a long time in this area in fact since shortly after it opened. It was a mess. Tumbleweed is not much better I agree that the one in Florence is great. In fact ate there a few weeks ago. Friches is just Friches, I was in Bob Evans last week and I was suprised with the new look the new manager and lots of new faces and the place has turned it around. Food was good, service was the best I have ever gotten there. Not sure but I think that young punk guy that use to run it left town. Like I said I was suprised it has been several years since it was any good.

I am pretty sure that a server from Applebees in Maysville stole my credit card info and made a bunch of purchases and cash advances...The transactions are getting investigated as I write this....It is a real shame.

I usually do not get on forums like this and contribute to the negativity...However, I must agree with most comments posted here. When I go out to a restaurant, I am paying for the service. I can prepare my own food at home for that matter. How hard is it anyway?

If you read thru this thread and every other thread started about Crapplebees, its all the same.......bad service, unaccomodating management, food not fit for a starving african kid to eat, lots of excuses instead of fixing issues the public points out repeatidly! Its the same song and dance. But heres what needs to happen, if half of you that complain on Topix or complain in the store, would call corporate, things would get changed. I encourage everyone to share your stories about experiences at the Maysville APPLEBEES and lets pray someone finally comes in and straightens this place up. Its not all the workers fault either. Theyre doing what theyre told to do, and what theyre trained to do. It starts at the top and trickles down. Lets stand up for a better APPLEBEES! Register complaints at:
WWW.Applebees.com or call the corp number with the store # located on the front of the bldg.

Well I worked at Applebee's. And the management is the main reason that place sucks so bad. But honestly they treat their employees like shit, so would you really do a good job if you were treated like dirt? That's why most of the servers aren't any good. Because they don't care. And they don't care because they aren't being treated right. Most of the managers are smart ass bitches. There is one manager that is good to the employees. The rest of them yell about nothing, talk to the employees like children, cuss at them, and are just flat out rude. And then they wonder why they can't get any work done. Because they run off all the good employees. So that most of the ones left are only there because they have no where else to go. All their best employees have left. Because they realized how terrible the place is.
