Dependable fare in a strange town

In town for a convention? Not feeling adventurous enough to try a mom-and-pop restaurant? Applebee's is here for you. It's centrally located, easy to find, and will fill your tummy just the way you want.

Got seated surprisingly quite quickly. But then had to wait ages just to get attention of our server and then only by pressing button on the wireless ipad device on the table. Then had to wait ages to order and a lifetime to get our drinks order of two beers. Our wine order arrived after we had finished our main... More

We have come here many times and it is always the same. Takes to long to get your food and the food is mediocre. The service is always disappointing. The servers just seem like they really don't want to be there. Don't get me wrong, they are not rude just seem unhappy to be working there.

The place can get crowed during the lunch time. Have eaten here a few times while visiting the area. Food is good and the servers have been nice and quick. The last time in a friend had the three meat sandwich and it was a little light on the pulled pork. Serve said it had the correct portion.

The location is great here and the menu has been updated. We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious chicken entrees that were available. The service was very good, and the restaurant was clean. I recommend it.

After a long day on the road, this was the only place open other than the Denny's nearby our hotel. It was a welcomed treat, but typical of an Applebee's. Our server was friendly and attentive, so we enjoyed that part. The food was traditional menu food at Applebees.

I think our friendly, helpful waitress was named Krissy. She was a jewel. The restaurant is easy in/easy out from the freeway. The food was the usual Applebee's fare. Krissy made our visit enjoyable after a long day on the road.

a typical Applebee's - one of us chose the riblet basket with fries and the other the riblet dinner. The dinner was waaaay to much, so if you want the riblets, either share it with your table mates or just for for the smaller portion riblet basket. The cole slaw was fresh and tasty. The dessert we chose was the... More

I have just walked out this place. Firstly I was greeted by tall skinny guy who should in no way be a meet and greet host as he is miserable and barely talks. After 5 min a waitress passed by and said she would be right with me. 5 min later I walked out with a single person noticing. If... More

I was hoping for a better place due to the location but no, it's the same like the rest, very few chain restaurants try to be better but this location just looks like they don't even try, the service is the only thing good, the food is just blah!
