I recently brought my family into the Applebee's restaurant in Sterling, Va and had a very disappointing experience. The bartenders obnoxious friends came into the bar, used foul language, and offended two of my family members. THE WORST PART...the bartender did nothing and the manager ignored us. This level of service is never acceptable and I hope you reconsider your other dining options before going to this Applebee's. I cannot speak for the dining rooms or servers at this location, but I can tell you that the poor bar service, disrespectful clientele, and inattentive management are enough to dissuade me from ever returning again.
