Not the best experience

My server was fantastic although I was very disappointed with the food. I got just a regular burger. The burger was average at best and the french fries came out cold.I highly applaud my server for being great because that was the only positive part about my experience.

They are always busy, near several hotels and office complexes. Immediately seated, then waited on. Highly recommend the sweet potato fries appetizer. Will be back. Chili's is around the corner and they are terrible. Save yourself the trouble and come here instead.

I'm not normally a big Applebee's fan, but the food here was excellent and the service prompt. On a Friday night it was busy, but not so busy we couldn't get seated right away.

Good family atmosphere here. The kids menu is limited, but my guests found what they wanted, and our waiter made sure we were taken care of in a timely manner.

When I stay in the area I usually go to Applebee's. I know, it's a chain restaurant that you can find anywhere. However, this particular location is very good and worth a try. Both the kitchen and the staff bring their 'A' game - their steaks are excellent as are their appetizers. Service always friendly and attentive. Short walk from... More

Applebee's has the best appetizer bargain in any chain. After 9 PM, which is when we got off of work, allows you to enjoy really good wings, a beer and chips for less than $10.00.

Came here for dinner. Ordered the Roma Pepper Steak, asked for medium rare. The steak came out so succulent and juicy that it tastes good by itself and there is no need for the A-1 sauce. This will be a dish that I will order again.
