just ok

The main problem was our waitress didn't seem to know what she was doing but wasn't willing to ask for help. This caused us to have to wait and ended up with poor service. They have very little in the way for vegetarians. The dining room was also freezing.

Went to dinner tonight at 7pm and their was a sign saying due to the weather they were closing. Their were 30 people eating and drinking. I was shocked that they closed so early it was not that bad out. Will never eat at Applebee's again.

The service was terrible. We went to eat lunch about 15 minutes after they opened. So they were not busy. There were only a few other tables besides us. It took almost 5 minutes for our waitress to even take our drink order. We ordered an appetizer and it came about 2 minutes before our food. The food use to... More

We've eaten here on several occasions, and it is consistently good, great burgers with crisp, fresh fries. We've always had prompt, friendly service with attentive servers. On a recent evening, our male server was especially attentive and fun, we wanted for nothing during our meal, glasses refilled promptly, always a smile. Perfect !! I had the crunchy shrimp which is... More

When I am in town for business, I often make my way over to the Applebee's because I do not feel like driving anywhere else and I can walk to the location from any of the plethora of hotels in the area. Last night I wanted to watch some pre-season football and enjoy some good food and service after a... More
