We took our daughter and grandson to the Applebee's restaurant in Bakersfield a week ago. The menu was changed, and we noticed there were many empty tables at 7:00 PM. After about 10 minutes we ordered our food, and it took another 45 minutes for it to arrive. My steak was tough, stringy, the grilled vegetables were 5 pieces of zucchini and peppers. Baked potato was not thoroughly cooked. A shrimp dish was very bland, tasteless, even the pizza our grandson ordered was poor. He had one bite, didn't want the rest. Overall, it was an unpleasant experience and we will not be returning.
