Service was slow and bad. Waitress bordered on rude. Had to grab another waitress for drinks. One of three entrees was served more than 10 minutes after the other two. Everytime we asked about it we heard a VERY hateful 'one more minute'. No explanation or apology. My Dad's hearing is not great and she made no effort to speak... More

Stopped for dinner on a road trip. Can't go wrong at Applebee's, right?. WRONG. Got seated and waited while our waitress flirted, talked, laughed with a couple of guys at another booth. This went on throughout the entire process of ordering, getting food, eating and getting bill. Another thing that stinks (literally) about this Applebee's is that smoking is allowed... More

The worst Applebee's that I have every been to. There were so many complaints about the new staff who clearly did should have had more customer service training. I was squeezed done an isle between a large gentleman which was embarrassing. I was seated right next to the hostess station where they staff hung out and talked. I heard them... More

We like Applebee's for their 2 For $20 specials. Stopped here on our way to Florida. Food and service was very good, but as soon as you walk in the front door, the smell of cigarette smoke permeates the air. We told the hostess about it, so she seated us as far away as possible from the bar area, but... More

We were staying in the area and were a little tired from traveling all day, so we decided to use Applebee's car side to go to pick up food to eat in our hotel. We called and were told the food would be ready in twenty minutes, where to park and instructed to remain in the car. Apparently they watch... More

Food and drinks were good and had a chance to chat it up with some of the locals which was cool. The service however is kinda sucky since it appears they have a bunch of young kids working here and they are rather slowful about taking your order and bringing out drinks and food... But overall a good experience.

The servers are very nice and seem to know what tehy are doing. The atmosphere is great. I can't believe they allow smoking inside the building in this day and age, but overall We love coming here lunch or dinner ...come before 7pm to get half price appetizers!!
