As I sit here (been waiting way over an hour) we have yet to see a manager. Horrible service. I would never go back to this one. Server even told us after we hit an hour that the were very backed up due to call offs. All we ordered was appitizers.

The hubby gets the bourbon street steak and he says every one he has ever gotten has been delicious. I order a... More

My Fiance and I eat out regularly. Applebee's is one of our common stops. I would reccomend this one. The food was right on and our server Kim (We do not know her outside of eating there) was possibly the very best server we have ever encountered. Management checked in on us regularly and the rest of the staff was... More
