They always have horrible service and horrible food that is way over priced. Especially the one in Waterloo. Worst one I've been too. South county Applebees has better food and service by far. Nothing you can do about how ridiculous the prices are though

Not to make excuses for your subpar service, but when the power went out yesterday in the middle of a Friday night rush, the computers went down. When the computers go down at applebees everything gets effed. Their whole system runs off the computer network. So for 30 minutes or so tickets were being hand written and delivered to the cooks. No problem right? Well it can be a problem when the food that WAS on a computer screen just disappears, and then you start seeing servers bring back their "hand written tickets". Figure out what has to go out by memory and work the new checks. That's not easy amidst a jumbled ass mess. As far as the new servers go, sorry but they cater to you and when they're stressed out cause the cooks are effing shit up, service quality is going to suffer. Don't like Applebees, Burger King is 2 blocks thata way where you can have it your way. And GOOD GIRL how many places can you go to get an appetizer and 2 steaks for $20? You just sound to me like you're cheap.

And when there's 130 people sitting in there with 10-20 people waiting to be sat, I guess your opinions don't matter so much do they? Apparently enough people do like Applebees, huh?

I'd like to see all of you b*tchin about applebee's service try to wait tables there, Not a single one of you would be able to handle six tables complaining about "not having enough butter" or something completely idiotic, much less two or three tables in general. So if you're going to complain about service, don't go there. Go to BK, hell go to denny's see if you get half as decent service and the servers at applebee's give.

Right because oooonly the people currently working at Applebee's could pooossibly handle waiting on six whole tables. In fact I don't any othe people have evn tried that. Whew! Waterloo Applebee's is luck to have found the only people in the World with those particular abilities. Funny how they all live so closely. hmmm.

And to your Dennys point, service there is WAY better than at Applebees. Way better.

Applebees sucks everywhere I've ever been. It gets worst everyone I go to. I don't know why anybody would still to there. I don't know why anybody would still go there and then be shocked the service sucks.

Not having enough butter is not idiotic to someone wanting more butter. They bring you tiny minute amounts of salad dressing for a salad, very little anything, so maybe if they would be a little more generous with their condiments, they wouldn't have to make several trips to and from the kitchen. When you pay for your meal, you expect to be satisfied. I was a waitress, and I realize what it's like..it's not easy, but it's a job, and you can either handle it or you can't. I tip 20%, so it's not like I stiff the service person.

Really? Does it get worst? "I don't know why anyone would still to there." Maybe you should have another drink.

Well sorry, but 30% is not happening with me...15 to 20% is plenty! If someone wants to tip 30% then that's great for the wait staff, but before long, it'll be to 50 - 75%

@ Al Cervic, someone named lowball mentioned that they have friends in the service industry and they are all tipping 30%(or more)..seems like a lot to me..nice if you're service staff, but not sure how many will be tipping that much!
