Was at restaurant in South Bend, Indiana on Portage last nite. Hungry, hard working husband ordered the steak that is in all of the ads.
It was tiny and had about 5 round, overcooked things that were supposed to be potatoes. I had a baked potato and the lettuce wedge and ordered a Long Island Iced Tea, special of the evening. My lettuce was fine, but had about 2 teaspoons of dressing on it....had to ask for more and was almost done when extra arrived. Potato so dry it could have soaked up a pound of butter and still be difficult to swallow.
Iced tea was nothing like I know. Was very pale and I swear had not a spot of liquor in it. After getting to car, we both broke out in laughter and headed to Dairy Queen so Husband could eat. We used to go to Applebees all of the time, but we will wait about 2 years before we go again!
Too bad, so sad for everyone! They will not be around for long. Will give our waitress credit. She was sweet, tried to fix things and was not trying to be our long lost friend.
We should have complained more, but sometimes things just can't be fixed, and I don't expect the restaurant to pick up our tab. We paid, but will not be back and will also ask others about their recent experiences.
