We went there with some friends. Although the restaurant was very busy, we did not have to wait long to be seated. The staff was friendly, but the service was not exceptional beyond showing us to our table after a short wait. The menu provided much to choose from, and the prices were reasonable. The highlight of the night was... More

Ordered a steak - got home with it, it was tough, poorly cooked. The salad which I paid an extra $1.99 for was a wedge of lettuce (can we say O'Charley's) with very little "stuff". I took the meal back for a full refund. Overall, don't waste your time here. Even the management staff is poorly groomed. Not a dig,... More

Applebee's usually has a varied menu. Appetizers were on special. Everything tasted good. Bethany took good care of us. She made the difference!

I've always enjoyed Applebees but also have known them to be rather slow with their service - one waiter to take your order, another to serve. Usually the kitchen was the hold-up. Not true today. Just tried their lunch menu (Tuesday nacho special for $6.99) with sister & 82 year old father. From the time we entered until the walk... More

Ate here while staying at a local hotel for one night. The service was great. The food was okay. I had the ribs and they tasted good even though they lacked having enough meat on them. The fries and slaw were good. The sweet tea was fabulous. Even got a 10% discount for staying at the hotel next door.
